year two.

I just realized that I passed my anniversary. My blogging anniversary. The second one.

[No, I will not use any words that combine the word blog with another word such as anniversary, universe, stratosphere, or anything else. No offense intended if you use these combined-words… I just refuse to use them.]Β 

[Come to think of it, there are a lot of ‘hip’ words (are they hip? ugh) that I refuse to use. They make me cringe. Again, no offense if you use them. I don’t hold it against you. They are (far too) common, after all. I just could never use them myself. I won’t list those either. But they are shortened or modified versions of totally, amazing… you get the idea.]

[I’d say maybe it’s my age but then you may not believe that I’m 29 anymore.]

Now that I’m done bitching about words…

This blog is two years old. It walks and talks more than ever. It gets into everything. And it may be entering the terrible twos.

I’m supposed to say that my blog is for me… and it is… but it’s also for you. I want you to be interested… or entertained… or something. Hopefully not appalled. I often wonder how to make my blog better… but then I realize I should not be giving myself additional stress. I already have more than I can handle.

But… I hate that I haven’t been able to post fiction … and I hate that my recent poetry sucks… and I hate that I’m such a mess that I spend too much time talking about my failings as a human being.

But… you’re here and that amazes me daily.

Thank you.

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  9. Congratulations on two years! That is an accomplishment, my friend!
    My attention span is so fleeting that I have one blog I’ve not written on for 2 years…another that’s been almost a year since a post…one that I let go…and the one now.
