I wanted to explain a little about my goals for this blog. I really love having the opportunity and the open forum to discuss my thoughts, opinions and general musings. I have always been a person who has something to say about stuff. Sometimes I’m a person who has a whole lot to say about stuff. Jer has been suggesting that I start a blog for some time now because I think he is tired of me inflicting my endless opinions on him. Since he works from home he is always within firing distance if I see a particularly frustrating story on TV, or read a funny article in one of my many (too many) magazines. I like to imagine that a little light bulb went off in his head and he thought, “Eureka! Mindy could write a blog! That way I can just listen to her when I feel like it and close the window when I’m done. Why didn’t I think of this before?”
As much as I like to share my innermost feelings with you I am hoping to expand beyond just blogging and provide a place where you will be able to access all kinds of information such as links to current events, favorite websites, shopping opportunities and tabs for recipes, book recommendations and such. I am also hoping to draw in lots of readers who will make comments and perhaps inspire new blog topics.
So I am appealing to you, my humble readers, to give me some ideas of what you would like to see. Are there any topics you think I should explore? What would draw you to a blogging website? Do you have any favorite blogs you already visit from which you think I might be able to draw ideas? I am open to any and all comments (and if you currently read but do not comment, maybe you could make an exception this one teeny weenie time?) I am nothing if not accepting of all opinions…except Jer’s. Some of his just piss me off. Just ask him.
This blog really is a work in progress as I think I am truly learning on a day-to-day basis. I am hoping to submit almost daily entries but as you all know, life can sometimes get in the way. I really appreciate everyone’s support and definitely appreciate everyone’s comments. I will keep you updated on the progress of my website-in-action. And just one of these days you will log on to www.thesuburbanlife.com and maybe have found your new home page!
Keep on reading and tell your friends!
Love to all, Mindy
I like all the ideas you have. I would be interested in everything you mentioned.
One thing I’m always looking for is what’s new for a season. Are we supposed to have orange toenails for summer or are cardigans in for fall? You can peruse all the sites and let us know.
Great idea! Thank you!
Just keep going – eventually you’ll see what your blog is *really* about. If you stay true to yourself – it’ll come out…whether you want it to or not. 🙂
