My New Blog!

head shotOk so here it is – MY NEW BLOG!

Why a blog? Well there are many reasons.

First I’m a writer but more importantly I have opinions about everything that need to be candidly and safely expressed. What safer place than on the Internet where the entire world can see it?

I was the original Murphy Brown – a pioneer for women journalists in the 80s, but I also have her personality.  When the show came on I didn’t watch it for the first three seasons. People kept telling me I had to watch it because Murphy Brown was ME. I finally gave in and was hooked. To this day I think it’s one of the best written sitcoms of all time.  Many people didn’t like Murphy but being likened to her was a great compliment to me.  (If I only looked like Candace Bergen, sigh.)

My boss once told me that I turn every conversation into one about myself and I instantly replied, “I can’t help it if I’m the most interesting person I know.”  A split second later I realized that was an exact conversation from an episode of Murphy Brown.

What can you expect from my blog? Basically whatever is on my mind at the time – could be humor, could be a rant, could be a rave – you never know what you’ll find here but I promise it will always be interesting and hopefully insightful and amusing.

At this point in time I’m new to Word Press and I know there is a learning curve. I have the patience of a flea so I’m sure there will be a lot of tech mistakes and oh shit moments.  My attention span just doesn’t allow for hours of video tutorials. I’m more the learn as you go type, which is not always a good thing and I have a sneaking suspicion that in some cases it might be a really bad thing.

We will find out together, won’t we!

  1. Hello, i think that i saw you visited my blog so
    i came to “return the favor”.I am trying to find things to improve my web site!I suppose
    its ok to use a few of your ideas!!

  2. Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was super long)
    so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

  3. First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to
    ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself
    and clear your head prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my ideas out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any ideas or hints? Thanks!

    1. It depends. Usually I just get inspired and it flows for me. If I have a particular project and am “stuck” then I just write anything down and go back and edit. I find if I just force myself to put words on a page it unsticks me. As for the blog, it’s usually inspired and already written in my head; but I often go back and edit even after I’ve posted.

  4. Thanks on your marvelous posting! I definitely enjoyed reading it, you
    could be a great author. I will make certain to bookmark your blog and will often come
