I am Freaking Out.

It was getting ridiculous, the amount of time I spent ‘setting up’ my blog, without actually posting anything.

“Oh, I might just look at another ‘how-to’ guide before I publish anything.”

“Maybe the heading would look better blue…”

“What’s a widget?”

Eventually I had to acknowledge I was Freaking Out about posting, and just dive in and do it. Here I am! Resurfacing from my dive and glancing furtively around, hoping no one saw my belly-flop.

I’ve never been one to even take selfies, and yet here I am with a blog. I suppose I have a lot to say, about a lot of things – so much in fact that most of it escapes me. It feels terribly narcissistic, to have a blog (sorry, fellow bloggers). Actually, I hugely admire people who share their thoughts and lives through blogs. Obviously I’m afraid that no one will be interested in what I have to say. But I’ve decided that’s okay, because it feels better to say it anyway. So I will go forth and say things!

Plus I’ve paid my $99 annual fee now, so I can’t chicken out.

I am Erin, a happy person who is often angry. I get angry about Very Important Worldly and Social Issues, and also when someone turns up at my house unannounced. I am an eater, an over-thinker, and a mother twice over. I am fortunate to live in Canberra, Australia, with my man and two little boys.

The primary reason I created this blog (which of course, being an over-thinker, I have been pondering for WEEKS) was to document my family’s food journey. I do intend to do that. I love food. But, I also know that I can’t help but speak write my mind on many other issues too, and so I give this warning now (and I give myself permission).

It’s times like these you need someone to come along and just press ‘publish’.

  1. This was really good! Hey, if you don’t mind could you follow me? I am trying to get the word out about my blog. I want to help people with it, and it’s a “you are wanted” blog, talking aight purposes and struggles we go through sometimes! Thanks, and keep publishing!

  2. Love the background for your blog. Writing is such a great tool, so you can’t go wrong with a blog, especially if you’re an over-thinker like me! Hope you enjoy blogging!

  3. Hi Erin. Saw you stopped in and visited my blog, thank you! I like what I see (read) here, and you’ve only just begun. I look forward to keeping in touch with your writing. πŸ™‚
