The Day I Became a Blogger

Wow. I guess this makes it official…I’m a real blogger! I think I’ve had this WordPress account created since 2012, but it took a few years to decide what I wanted to write about. And that’s when it came to me: an eighties throwback blog! Kidding…but that really shouldn’t have been a joke, because those blogs DO exist (see here), and eighties music is great I don’t care what they say. Actually I need to clarify something. I apologize that the title of this post is misleading, because I HAVE been a blogger before. I tried my share of fashion, food, French, beauty blogs you name it, hoping I’d make it big and become one of those millionaire teen bloggers. Alas, it never happened, and here I am. Still poor and no longer a teenager. But the other day I said to myself, “today is just as good a day as any to pick up blogging again. I’m in a big city, and other than sipping champagne with my imaginary friends all day, I’ve had a little time on my hands. I will also have you know that unlike my blog failures in the past, I won’t be posting my shit all over social media saying, “READ THIS CRAP BECAUSE IT’S AMAZING!” Because I know it isn’t, so I’m just going to leave it up to the everyday WordPress peruser to read my words. So with that I give myself a pat on the back. “Welcome to the blogosphere, friend,” I say, “welcome to a whole new world.”

P.S. I know P.S.’s are bullshit, but I have to make a disclaimer: I do not intend to keep my blog header the theme default. Frankly, I consider that a little fraudulent. Although the photo is gorgeous, I probably have never even been to that travel destination. I don’t want to get off to a bad start with my blogger buddies by pretending to be someone I’m not. Okaythatsallbye.

P.P.S. Okay at this point, I’m kind of liking the postscripts. It’s like a paragraph break with random letters in front of it. I just wanted to say how difficult it was trying to pick a theme for this blog. You go through a list of about 327 different options and they all look terrible. And then finally you find something you like, so you click on it, and it says, “purchase this theme for $80.” Ummm, no thanks. Okay, sorry I know I’m rambling, and I’ve already broken just about every blogging rule. Plus, I’m not funny and there is a slim chance anyone has even read this far in this godforsaken post. BYE.
