My online publicist pressed the issue claiming that it would be "good for business." I resisted. She started one for me--even wrote the posts herself, bless her heart. But that didn't feel very authentic and I hate feeling like a faker. So I started writing. Little by little I began to remember how much I love creative writing. Now it seems, I am a pathetic blogging maniac--always checking my friends' blogs for updates and re-checking my own for any sign of a comment. Ridiculous. Please, blogging veterans, tell me it gets old.
This blog is to be a place where I can just be Mindy; a place where there's no expectation to put my best foot forward. Expect off the cuff remarks, photo essays highlighting the rotten food and mountain of dishes in the sink, and a promise of the most CRA-ZAY (as Hailey would say) family pics you've ever seen. But please, also expect shared inspiration, music topics, and interviews with the down-to-earth people that I love.
Tomorrow will be my first Fam Friday post. Each Friday I will introduce you to a member of my family. Get ready for some seriously shocking photos . . .
