Guys, it’s happening.

I decided to start a blog. And I’m paying for it, so hopefully that will keep me on track with updating! Here are some questions you may have regarding my blog:

What will you be writing about?

That’s a great question. Did you happen to see the title of my blog? Yes, it’s a play on my son’s name, but I really chose it because I have a plethora of ideas that I want to write about. Sometimes I’ll write a movie review; for example, tonight I saw Wonder Woman and am just going crazy about how good it is. Or maybe I’ll blab about something really cute that Jack did that I just want to share with you all. Sometimes I might vent about something really bothering me. Maybe I’ll share a recipe I came across that I think you’ll want to know about it. The point is: I have no idea exactly what this blog will look like, which the perfectionist in me is hating, but the truth is: I need to just write truth, whatever that truth is for me while writing.

Will you be getting super political or religious on me?

I have my political stances and religious beliefs, yes. They are a part of me, and I’m sure will come out in my writing. Will I try to change your beliefs? No. Will I write judgey posts about things I disagree with? That’s hopefully something I won’t do. Of course the world changes every day, and so there’s always a chance I will adapt (or not) and feel the need to write something about how I feel. But truly, I want this to be something enjoyable to read, not someone venting about how terrible the world is. There’s enough of that on late night talk shows and the news.

I really don’t want to read about your son every day—OR—Please post all of the information about/pictures of Jack!

Those aren’t questions! 😉 Listen, I adore my son. He is amazing and perfect and wonderful. He’ll be a part of this, but no, he won’t be the center of my blog. Sure, some posts may focus on him, but not the entire site.

What if something you write offends me?

Gosh, I really hope I don’t offend you, and I hate that I am even writing about this at all, but unfortunately, a huge part of why I’ve not blogged in the past is because I’m so scared I’ll say something that someone will not like. Let’s face it: The internet is full of trolls. Until now, I didn’t think I could handle any. I still don’t look forward to someone hating on my words—it’s a very vulnerable thing to write a blog. But, I’m more confident in who I am as a person these days and who I am in Christ. So yeah, I can handle a couple trolls. But I don’t think I’ll be dealing with that much. Like I said, I don’t plan to be very political or anything like that on here. But I also never expected people to get upset about the “Shy Bathroom” commercials that Rob Lowe did, so there you go.

If something I write does offend you, please just talk to me about it! If it’s really a big deal to you, I’d love to have a discussion with you. I think talking about the hard stuff is way better than letting anger fester!

Why did you start this blog?

Love this question. I have found that I don’t have an outlet to talk about the things that I want to talk about. I end up either 1) holding it in, 2) telling Wes, who does his darnedest to listen, but sometimes his ADD acts up, and then I get upset, and then no one is happy, 3) I babble on to others who don’t have time to listen to my thoughts on binging “The Great British Baking Show” on Netflix. This is my outlet. This is how I feel that I have a voice. That somehow, I am valid to have the thoughts that I have. And if no one reads it, at least I’ve released it in the hopes that, one day, someone will find something useful from the things I’ve said. If nothing else, I hope this helps me find my tone as a writer and will help me in my “day job.”

How often will you be posting?

I don’t know. I really don’t know.

What’s your favorite movie of all time?

If you know me, you know that’s not answerable, and honestly, should never be asked! How can you choose one movie above the rest? It’s impossible. I’m still trying to sort out my Flickchart

That’s it for me tonight! Obviously, I’m the one who came up with all of the questions, but if you have something you’d like to ask, or if you have an idea for a blog you’d like me to write, feel free to leave a comment or contact me!
