Let the Blogs Begin

I never thought I would be a "blogger," but I always have been one to slowly accept new fads and perhaps my time has come. For so long (especially since moving to the outer reaches of the world aka Australia) many of you have tried to convince me of the joys and benefits of blogging. My skepticism coupled with my underlying laziness of cyber-scrapbooking has thus held me back, but here I now come to give this new phenomenon a try. I am a lover of writing/record keeping and photos and so hopefully that will help carry me into this new world of blogger-space and hopefully, my at-times-inept computer skills will not hold me back. We'll see. Be patient!

I don't ordinarily think of myself as an indecisive person, but after just spending an hour trying to come up with a name and address for this blog I begin to question that self-perception. So after previewing the blogs of any friends and family that I could remember and find links to, and trying out various available URL addresses- I end up with lotsofleah with the title "Memoirs of a Leah." Yes, with a not-so-subtle reference to memoirs of a geisha, I do picture myself in a red kimono with chopsticks in my hair (the pasty white face comes naturally) sitting down at my computer to make the attempt. I imagine this blog will be just lots of random little thoughts and experiences that happen to cross my fancy at the time.

Without further ado, I begin this adventure that so many have embarked on before me. Wish me luck.

Signing out as the reluctant but experimental blogger-
