Resistance is Futile

My first introduction with blogging was when I read an article about the thousands of dollars that could be made just by sitting at home and writing about what you love. Sounded awesome. I tried to set up a blog, already dreaming of the millions I'd be making, but couldn't figure out how to get it up and running. Then a good friend kept telling me I needed to be an advice columnist so I thought I would set up a blog for that. After 5 failed attempts at getting those blogs up and running I finally called my buddy, Lucy, to come over and help me figure out the mysteries of the blog generators. Lucy, unsatisfied with the very impersonal advice blog, kept pestering, uh... I mean encouraging me, to set up a personal blog. I would smile and and politely say that it just wasn't my thing. After awhile, though, I finally decided to give personal blogging a try. Just like I'm always telling my kids at the dinner table, I tried it and I liked it. Once converted I set out to get recruits of my own, like a pyramid scheme. I've been bugging my amazing Super Sister for months now to set up a blog and FINALLY she has been suckered into this thing. If you get some time today stop by her new blog and say hi. I'm so excited to see what she does with it.

Here is her web site for Classical Education

Thank you, thank you! I can't wait to know her better. Hardly anyone I know in real life has a blog. I must not be persuasive enough :)

Oh, and I'm so glad you started a personal blog too. I'm so glad I got to know you.

Hopefully I am a cute pest and didn't ruin our friendship at all :) !! I didn't mean to be so pushy, I just knew you would love it!

Lucy, I DO love it and it only helped our friendship because now we keep in touch so much easier.

How fun! I'm always encouraging my friends/family to start blogs too.

I'm glad you started a personal blog.

Blogging is sure addictive--give her a few months and she's be as into it as everyone else!

Well then I am glad I was an overly obnoxious and pushy pest :) !!
