It's About Time!

Well, it's official. I've entered the addicting world of blogging. I think I truly am the last one in America that doesn't have a blog. Wait. Scratch that. The other two families left would be my parents and my in-laws. But they can READ blogs. Does that count?

Anyway, here's how it all began.I was talking online to my friend, Cindy, the other night and she said, "You should get a blog." and I said, "Why?" and she replied, "So we can read it every day." Good enough reason, I guess.

So the next night, my family came over for dinner and I told my sister (who already has a blog), "I think I'm going to start a blog." She looked at me and replied (paraphrasing here), "What are you going to write about? 'Today on Lifetime, I watched True Life: The Claire Smith Story'." I stared at her for a second, rolled my eyes, and said matter-of-factly, "It's 'Moment of Truth.'" We both laughed because we both know I watch way too many Lifetime movies to actually know that.

I told asked her tonight when I called to come up with a good title for my blog, something catchy. She came up with Childress Chuckles or Childress Chuckleads as an alternative. As you can see, I've changed the blog title, but kept the web address. Thanks, sis! She wrote the first post. So in response to that one...ummm. Sorry. But I do want to thank you for getting it started for me! I just hope this is not one of those "start but don't finish" projects I always get myself into. I just have to learn more things about it. One night at a time.

Glad you quit thinking you were too good to join our bandwagon.
Way to go!

Now get it in gear, write about whatever...but be entertaining at the same time.



Really am glad you've gotten started.
