I wanna be rich.

Have you heard this song? "I Wanna Be Rich" by Calloway has been playing on the station I listen to every once in a while (mostly on Way Back Wednesdays) and every time I hear it it gets stuck in my head for the rest of the day. It's so darn catchy. "I want money. Lots and lots of money."

I mean, who doesn't? Well, I guess some people don't. But, as a newlywed who's newlymortgaged (it's a word, k?), 'lots and lots of money' sounds particularly nice.

But that's beside the point. I only titled this entry that because it's in my head.

I really wanted to tell you that it's hard for me to blog. I went to the University of Oklahoma today to watch my blog-idol Ree Drummond speak about her life as a new blogger. It was extremely interesting (and hilarious) and it caused me to appreciate what she's done even more. For the past several months I have had a few people tell me I should write a blog (well, some didn't call it a blog, they went for a whole book, but let's me serious...). Not bragging at all, just saying this whole thing wasn't necessarily my idea. I've had many blogs in the past, but they never served much of a purpose. They were mostly "I did _____ today." One of PW's main points today was encouraging new bloggers to keep at it and not give up in the beginning. (Robin, I can hear you telling me "I told you so!")

I just want to make it clear that I'm still not comfortable with this blog idea. At least, not so much with my blog. I would love to delve into this whole blogging world, I just don't know what direction I want to go with it. I feel like talking about my life with Braylen and the pets is going to get old very soon. Plus, I don't want to seem like I feel people should care what happens day-to-day in our lives. I'm quite possibly taking this much too seriously. In fact, I know I am.

I just felt a disclaimer should be made: I am a newb, so bare with me.

So don't be asking me why..
I wanna be rich, oh!

  1. Well, in my unbiased opinion, I think you're off to a great start! And who says that your blog has to have a point/purpose? You are a great writer, and that's what sets you apart from the masses.
