Starting a blog always seemed like starting a journal. You get a sudden rush of inspiration, think grandiose thoughts of how you'll update with witty entries every day, and 2 months later, you can't even remember the last time you thought to write anything. Hopefully, this won't be the case.
The main reason I'm doing this is as an extension of the multitudes of e-mails I send my dear friends every day. Some people in the world are the type that are easily swayed by packaging, judging a book by its proverbial cover every chance they have. Others are the type that like to broadcast opinions and commentary on everyday findings. As many of my friends know by now, I'm a volatile combination of both. Most of my e-mails start with "LOOK AT THIS" or "AHHHH!!!! " (sad but true), and describe either my intense passionate love or absolute hatred of my latest impluse buy, or random commentary on other blogs/websites/celebrity news. Basically, this blog is a way for me to put this information out without sending 23984389473478 separate e-mails. And hey, hopefully some of it will be useful to someone out there :-)
