Just do it already…for real

I keep putting this off…this blogging bit.  Wonder why?  Because I’m a scaredy cat, that’s why. My head is saying: “What if no one reads this but my Mom? Crap, what if she hates my blog?!?” I’m putting myself out there….but where the heck is ‘there’?!?! “I’ll just do a little more research first” and another month goes by…that’s the gist.

See, I want everything to be perfect…so it looks like I know what I’m doing. And I keep making excuses. Holding myself to unrealistically high expectations. Waiting for just the “right” time…Maybe if I could learn this my MacBook better (I’m kind of challenged in the technology department). Or organize and edit all my photos first (yeah right). Or get a better grip on my WordPress site (whatever…I swear it’s alien language).  I’ll just shift a few more things around on my desk, longingly admire a couple more designer’s portfolios… You catch the drift. Well, there is never a perfect time.

Believe it or not, I’ve had this domain over 2 years now and written some 7 ‘first posts’ and over 20 regular posts but haven’t hit publish once….well, except on New Year’s day because I promised the hubs, and I had to keep that one.  But it was a tiny little post and I’m not sure that even counts (but isn’t our lot pretty?!?!).

So here goes nothing….and we’ll see what happens.  Pretty soon there will be all sorts of design/decorating goodies on here.  Ideas, unique finds, pretty pictures (maybe, but I’m no photographer) and me, a decorator and lover of interiors…documenting the process of building our (forever?!?) home along the coast.  Yep, good stuff.  I’m 40 and finally going for it…even if I throw up in my mouth a little as I hit publish…
