Hi. My name is Heather. And I am a Luddite.
Okay, not quite a Luddite. After all, I do love my new netbook (it’s pink!) and my schmancy new Keurig coffee maker totally rocks, but suffice it to say this is my first attempt at blogging. I don’t Tweet. Facebook? My Space? Oh my gosh, I’m so far behind. I do actually have accounts on those two sites (as a dear friend of mine forced me at virtual knifepoint), but I haven’t touched them since signing up. I suppose one of these days I will have to figure all of that out, too.
The sad part of this is that I’m only in my thirties. I don’t even have the excuse of not knowing how to work a computer… (Does having an 18 month old who won’t let me anywhere near a keyboard or mouse while he’s awake count?)
So why, you ask, am I starting a blog? Because even a youngish technophobe like myself recognizes that the internet is THE venue in which to connect with people – friends, family, other writers, agents, editors and hopefully someday, readers!
I’m sure I’ll start slow. Remember that 18 month old? Well, I have to use every spare second of nap-time to actually get my writing done. But I hope in the months ahead to build on this humble beginning and create a blog we’ll both (you and I, that is…he’s too young) find interesting!
For now, I’ll leave you with a question. Since I am new to the blogging world, why don’t you share with me what you love about your favorite blogs and why you read them? I’d love to learn from those more savvy than me!
