Dear Blog,

I sincerely hope that you and I are going to get along.  I think there is a lot of potential for us to have a really great time together, however, this nonsense of you acting all cranky and difficult needs to stop asap. The very idea of me starting a blog is understandably absurd, seeing as how I don’t know a plugin from an …. I don’t even know what.  In my mind, a cookie is something you eat warm, with milk.   So help me out here.  Cooperate.  Please?  The idea of having an outlet share my thoughts on food, creative projects, and other miscellany with the limitless bounds of cyberspace is like a siren song that I can’t resist any longer.  I’m always thinking about things.  In the car, in the shower, at work.  Somehow, I have to do something, to clear away some of these ideas that keep coming back around like a bad penny.  Maybe something I’m thinking about could be helpful to someone else!  So you see, as my blog, you will be a service to others!
 
I worry a bit about you in that you will have no one designation.  You aren’t a food blog.  Nor a crafting or sewing blog.  Dare I say a lifestyle blog?  No, that’s not right either.  I hardly think my lifestyle is one that many people want to emulate.  At the end of the day, my body, to it’s very core, resists being labeled and categorized, so you won’t be either.  I like options and unfortunately I often like many things all at once, which is precisely why trying to pick out something to eat off of the 50 page Cheesecake Factory menu is a total disaster. 
 
There you have it.  You are my uncategorized miscellaneous blog and your job is to stop being so difficult so that my technological incompetency doesn’t get the best of me and I give up on this endeavor entirely.  My job is to figure out how to ditch the stock images that show up on the page and then get writing so I can share my thought-provoking musings with the rest of the world, which is undoubtedly dying to read them.  We can do it!  Go team!
 
Much Love,
Allison
