Diving in at the deep end…

28 03 2006

OK, I've decided to take the plunge and set up a blog. Everyone else seems to be doing it, and as we're leaving on a 5 week overseas trip on Saturday, it seemed like the ideal opportunity. Usually when I travel I jot down notes about places, people, quirky things, etc. on scraps of paper or in an electronic document, but never seem to get them out later for anyone else to read – sometimes I don't even re-read them myself!

So this is the start… I've called the site "At Random" because I have no intention of trying to write something every day. The novelty may wear off very quickly, and I don't want to disappoint anyone – least of all myself. No point setting a goal that's so unrealistic that it's unattainable. That's not to say don't set high goals; just temper them with a reality check of what is REALLY do-able.

Oh, and the red pen at the top? It was a standard template on WordPress' site, but as I get paid to edit as well as write, it seemed appropriate. (And I just realised that it will fit with Gretchen's theme of "The Year in Red"!)

Woohoo! Great timing on your new blog, Rhonda. I can’t wait to read tidbits about your trip. And, of course, I love the red pen. How could I not?

Do let me know if you will be in the New England/New York area at all. 🙂

As a long time friend of yours, I will certainly be glad to see more of your commentary on your travel experiences.
