My blog is going through an identity crisis even though it's still a baby. Although maybe it has more to do with the fact that I have no idea what I'm doing, as I am an Internet idiot. Perhaps someone who can barely navigate her own blog settings, (and keeps changing them!) has no business having a blog. I don't think I'll give up on myself or my blog just yet though. I started this itty bitty blog for myself...so I could write on more than just Post-It notes, backs of receipts, and coloring book pages...but there is a little bit of a rush when other people read it too!
I love to write. I love to record the funny things that my kids say or do, and I've been told on more than one occasion (by one or two people!) that I should write a book. The problem is that I'm more of an instant gratification kind of girl; I like to write, preview and publish all in the same day.
I also have an English degree that I have never put to use...and this kinda qualifies right? Maybe? Of course I also have a Geography minor (sort of)...and could never find my way out of my apartment complex in Michigan, even after living there for a year. And before English I studied Art, and have a hard time with stick figures. Either way, I figured in all my spare time I should be doing something other than...well nothing. Now that I've committed to my blog, I try hard-ish not to neglect it, and I try hard to make it easy to find. In case anyone besides me is looking for it.
Regardless, this little blog has gone through three name changes in just about as many months and I still can't figure out how to get it out there and recognized by search engines other than Google or Blogger. Wait, are Google and Blogger even search engines?
My point? Instead of just This Side of Normal, I'm gonna call it Gonna Be This Side of Normal (with all the https and // and blog spots it needs of course)! There's a really long back story behind "Gonna Be," but for now adding Gonna Be separates me from some dude named Norman that the old title linked me too...My apologies for changing things...again.
