When starting a blog, is it really obligatory to introduce yourself? I think not. Instead I’d like to acquaint you with my reason for becoming a ‘blogger’. Let’s not get too ahead of ourselves though; I am uncertain as to whether this whole blogging caper will be the outlet I have craved to express my idiosyncratic, inconsistent, and probably sometimes offensive views on life or if this whole burst of writing energy is simply a passing phase. I guess you’ll have to stay tuned to find out, but knowing me (and I think I do that better than anyone else) I’ve got my money on the latter. So I tread carefully when introducing myself to you as a ‘blogger’ just yet. But here goes:
There has got to be literally thousands of blogs out there and I feel excruciatingly overwhelmed trying to read all of them, so I figured I would have a go at writing what I would enjoy reading. I can’t sit here and tell you what my blog is going to be about (because I really have absolutely no idea, to be honest); all I can tell you is that I find myself pondering life’s big (and sometimes heartbreakingly tiny) mysteries… all the time. I guess this blog could be a way for me to ponder ‘out loud’ and hopefully let someone, anyone, know that they’re not alone if they’re wondering/considering/feeling the same thing. I have included the word ‘crooked’ in the blog’s title not because it will be anything shady, illegal or corrupt, but because it will probably be a bit wonky from time to time, a bit off-kilter.
While I expect some of my posts will be about fashion, some about health, some about beauty (okay and probably more than some about traffic), I can only envisage that this blog may become as mundane as it is interesting, and as hatred-worthy as it is likeable. So all I can say to you is this: you’re not alone. That is the point of this blog in a nutshell (“Help! I’m in a nutshell!” – Oh yeah, I also come out with movie quotes at quite random intervals). So, do check in from time to time and if you like what you read, please let me know. If you don’t like what you read … well that could make for interesting conversation at least.
