(just figured out how to add these to a post! Excuse my excitement!)
Welcome to my first Random Rants and Ramblings post! I have SO many topics that I would like to share, discuss and/or vent about, it’s hard to pick one!
So to start, this is my introduction post. An ice breaker.
First of all; Thanks to ALL the awesome, wonderful, magnificent and brilliant followers! (I like to compliment) I had planned to go ahead a do a follow appreciation giveaway, so I had the post and rafflecopter all ready to go. I was busy most of the weekend and hadn’t spent much time on the computer (or at home, for that matter) then BAM! Over 200 Followers! I was NOT prepared for that in a matter of days! How awesome, right!? YOU ROCK! (You can enter HERE.)
OK, back to my original post…
I originally started this blog (under a different name, which is now hidden) as a way to express myself about topics and issues that infuriate me. I wasn’t working at the time and sometimes being a stay at home mom is boring. YES! I said it. BORING. My kids are in school full-time, after all. Anyway, aside from reading all the time, cleaning and all that mommy stuff, I didn’t really do anything. What better way to occupy my time then writing and venting to the world?
Fast forward 8 months later, I decided to change it and make it a book review blog. After browsing around and getting more involved in the “book blogger” community, I realized there were TONS of things to add to my vent list. I thought to myself “Should I vent about these things?” My answer? “Sure! Why the heck not.” After all, if you hop around, you’ll find plenty of discussions and vents across the web. (Two of my favorites, bookbrats. Megan is so honest and she cracks me up! And Alise over at Readersinwonderland) I figured I could just combine it all together. Reviews.Vents. Tours. whatever. Don’t assume I am having discussions or vents because others are. I don’t feel like I am “copying” anyone. As I said, this is what my original blog was about.
I like to consider myself an honest-tell it like it is- person. I’m blunt. Not rude, per say, but I often come off that way. As well as mean, crass and often bitchy. I don’t mean to be, all the time, it’s just how misunderstood someone with my type of personality is. I’m passionate about everything. I don’t do things half assed, so when I am happy I’m HAPPY. When I am mad, I’m MAD. (OK, you get the idea) Plus- It’s easier for me, personally, to write about how I feel. Yes, I argue and debate often, and more often than not, I tend to offend.
ALL THAT being said; I thought that jumping into the Topics I wish to discuss/vent about might send some people packin and headin for the hills. And possibly cuss me out. I thought I’d wait awhile. Let everyone get familiar with me. Write this post… THEN bust out the vents. Admittedly, they wont be often. MAYBE once a month or so. I already have a few post written but after re reading them, I NEED to make some serious edits haha
In any case, if you’re easily offended, I apologize in advance. If you like to debate and/or discuss, then by all means! Let’s have fun with it!
Until next time…. 😉
