Blogging 101, Assignment 1, Introduction
What I’m looking for here is, ironically, difficult to put into words.
Hello, I’m Min and I have a problem. How to introduce myself.
In conventional terms I am a late forties, semi professional married woman. I have a cat (no children). I like the usual things:
- music (fairly eclectic tastes, recently listening to Sibelius, Foo Fighters, Bjork, Brian Eno and 80s pop);
- food (especially fish at the moment);
- gardening (or so tell myself, but the garden is currently a state, and I don’t mean Kansas);
- geocaching (especially in spring and autumn);
- wine (enough said).
Why am I here and doing this?
I guess primarily to express myself in a manner that someone, anyone, might enjoy or at least relate to. It’s definitely a form of therapy, and I expect that I will be ranting a few times.
It will give me an opportunity to express what the rules of society do not permit me to say to someone’s face.
But there will be joy and photos and silly stuff too. My life’s semi-rich tapestry hung up for all to see. And because nobody out there really know me. I don’t have to face you in the office tomorrow and explain my bad behaviour.
And I just want to leave something that I have created “out there”. I used to be in a band who mainly did covers, but we experimented and started to write our own stuff. This is where we fell apart. I didn’t like the sugar sweet input of some of the others and they found my stuff too bleak. It might sound arrogant, but I just believe my own work was better. So perhaps some lyrics will feature.
What topics will I cover? No restrictions. but probably mostly from the list of likes above.
And I hope that being here will introduce me to like minded individuals. There seem to be precious few about in my day to day existence (apart from my much beloved).
Anyway, I’ve been rambling, you’ve been kind enough to “listen”, and if I don’t stop now I’ll make myself late for work.
