Sage and sassy wanderings of a curious mind.

To Blog or not to Blog? Hmmmm… June 1, 2011

Hey there Blogging world.  It took me awhile but here I am.  I juggled this question back and forth in my mind for quite a while.  You see I am an aspiring writer.  I am half way through writing my first book.  I have written a few essays or short stories and I have been a journal keeper since I was 14 yrs old.  That would be 31 years for anyone keeping track.

So, one would think that blogging would be a natural progression in my process.  But it wasn’t.  I had a hard time deciding to lay it all out there for anyone who wanted to read my inner most thoughts.  They are private right?  Here’s the thing, I really don’t keep too many things private.  I am pretty much a live out loud type.  If there is one thing I have learned in my 45 years on this planet it is this, I am ok.

I really am, I am certainly just as appealing as the next person.  I really wish the whole world could reach this conclusion, we are all equally important.  To my own little fan club I am even pretty fantastic.  When I speak people do indeed listen.  And yet, it still took a long time to talk myself into this.  Then I began to examine my interactions.  I am a very vocal participant on Facebook.  I have no problem speaking to people I don’t know at the kid’s school, the salon, the grocery store.  And people talk to me as well, about very personal things.  My family jokes that I have “Dear Abby”  tattooed on my forehead.  I can’t go anywhere without hearing some strangers intimate details.   But blogging is still daunting.  Just coming up with a name for it is headache inducing. So, I did the math.  I came up with no good reason not to blog and several reasons it would be a great addition to my life.

Speaking of naming it,  I chose “Sage and Sass”.  Why?  I like to think I am pretty wise when I stop to think about things.  I take thinking very seriously and give whatever happens to intrigue me at the moment an obsessive amount of studying before I come to a conclusion about it.  On the flip side I am also extremely sassy.  I am prone to talking back and I am fluent in sarcasm.  Harmless sarcasm, I would like to add.  I am not one for taking people down a peg…without warning anyway.  My kids have not seemed to catch on to this yet, unfortunately.      LOL , but I still try.

Hey, I feel better already just writing this first introductory blog.  I have no idea what the subjects will be or what direction this will take but I can guarantee it will be honest, heartfelt and as interesting as I can manage.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I hope to.

Slainte’,  ~Sam

    I love you so much and I hope you write everything in your heart because you are a very deep person who can write and will write till the ink stops running onto the paper or the all the words are taken up one the typing limit. So until everything there is to be said is said… Keep writing:)
