Back in the (blogging) saddle again

forthelovecover

Here I go again. Trying to start my blog. I love to write, and it has always been my dream to write. Of course, I have had the opportunity to write for newspapers – a while ago – and now I am writing excellent discussions boards and papers while working on my master’s degree – yay (why is there not a sarcasm font?). I have been trying to work up the nerve to post, and I have been racking my brain to come up with a “post-worthy” topic. Still nothing.

However, I got an email the other night that showed me it was time to pursue my dream. I just began following author Jen Hatmaker – on facebook (not in a creepy, stalkery way)- and she recently posted about looking for members for a launch team for her new book, For the Love. I was so excited! I love books! This team sounded awesome! So I applied, and the next day Jen posted again saying 5,000 people applied for 500 spots. I thought, “Well, there is no way I will get a spot.” However, that email proved me wrong. I got a spot on the team! The book comes out in August (you can pre-order it now), but me and my 499 new best friends get to read it now. (It is a great book, y’all!)

Through this opportunity, I have been able to connect with many women just like me – and they have been so encouraging. So thanks to them and Jen (whose blog post about writing brought my writing dreams to the forefront of my mind again) I am trying my hand at blogging again.

I hope you will follow my blog – I have no set theme. I plan to write about whatever strikes my fancy at the moment. If you like it, please let me know. If you don’t like it, you don’t have to tell me.
