Taking up a new blog on an actual blogging site as opposed to MySpace blogs is a fairly frightening thing for me to do.
So, let’s have a brief introduction to my own personal blogging history:
I signed up to use DeadJournal at age 17. That was aeons ago, and later, when I got a MySpace, I switched to using its blog as my main blog.
For those of you who don’t use MySpace, and even for those of you who do, you probably understand just how terrible the site can be and has been. Addicting, yes, of course, but mind-numbingly awful. The single saving grace I’ve had on MySpace all these years is the blog feature.
Everyone has to grow up at some point in time.
I seriously have over 1000 blogs on MySpace that I have posted since the Spring of 2005 when I signed up. Not all of those posts are worth reading. In fact, I would say the first several hundred were nothing but my repeating myself again…and again…and again.
On to more important issues!!!
A huge problem with the MySpace blog, iChic, is that I could never quite make up my mind what exactly the point of the blog was. Provided, some would say that a blog can be about anything at all, and that’s fine and dandy- blogs that have a topic, a focus, a subject matter, tend to be the ones that succeed more so, don’t you think?
So, for this blog, the decision has come to largely focus on what life in the South is like.
But I’m not going to write from the perspective of someone who just absolutely adores every little thing about the South, nor am I going to give you the general rehash of Green Acres.
No, instead, I will bring forth the little gems of Southern living that no one ever discusses.
Trust me, I’ll likely rant about other topics from time to time, so don’t expect me to spew out only things about living in the South- but I promise, I’ll try to keep on topic.
With regards to whomever may be reading this first entry and with sincere appreciation,
