I've felt like I've been a member of the blogosphere for almost as long as there has been such a thing, but always as a commenter and only a commenter. I never felt like I had much original to say, but I could always respond. I'm still not sure I have much original to say.
I've been inspired to join this side of blogdom by two main sources and several cheerleaders. First Jen Fitz explained why she was closing the comments at her blog and helpfully suggested that the authors of novel length comments might consider starting their own blogs. Is she talking to me? And secondly I have an envious desire to join Melanie's Learning Notes Link-Ups. When I mentioned I might be interested, a chorus of cheerleaders pushed me over the edge and here I am.
I am not sure how much I will be posting or what I will post about. Who knows? Once the bug strikes, the words may start pouring out. Or not. Maybe, over time, I'll even make this place fancy. We shall see, but I am now established.
So this is blogging...
