“You’re just a little snarky aren’t you?” were the words spoken to me by a friend, very sacrcastically one day. Those words gave me the title that I needed to start my journey in to blogging and sharing my writing. It was the perfect name for my blog, because I was just that snarky. So was off and running with it, before the words fell to the floor.
I have always been attracted to the written word as a way to express my feelings, but no one ever saw the writings of the past. It would end up in the trash can, or a book that on one would ever see, or in small bunches for fire starters (we had a fireplace growing up, I am not a pyro.) I have always been self conscious about my writing, due to my lack of spelling proficiency, that is why I hid my writing. I have a wonderfully large vocabulary but I can’t spell to save my life and that makes not share what I have to say with “pen and paper” as it where. It is so bad that my handwriting is not even sorta readable, to hide the misspelled words. I think it works pretty well, I am pretty sure that I am not fooling anyone one but myself. I am banking on the fact that people will just assume what the words are. But, there is no “bad” handwriting to hide behind in Bloggingland. So there is going to words that are not correctly spelled or are spelled right but not the correct word, if this takes away from you as the reader being able to read my posts I understand. I also understand if you never read anything else that I write, I have to be OK with that and thank you for stopping by. Thanks for giving me a shot.
When I started “Just a little snarky” it was a place where I could vent about life, work and stuff with out anyone knowing it was me, now it has become a place where I can vent about life, work and stuff but I own this as my stuff. It has become a place where I can share myself with anyone who is willing to read my long-meandering-poorly-constructed-some-times post that appear here. Again thank you if that happens to be you.
It helped to have somewhere to put all of my feelings while dealing with the family illness and eventual loss, that we dealt with at the end of 2010. Now to be totally honest it was not at “Snarky” is not where those posts where put. I had put “Snarky” on a shelf back in December of 2009 in favor of “Unsveltegirlrunning” (I had to sift through 8 pages of history to find this info, which makes me happy). “Unsvelte” was started as my I am in the process of losing weight and starting to run blog, but morphed in to my everyday blog at some point, so “Snarky” went on a shelf. I was “Unsvelte” on Twitter and even YouTube and I do “own” unsveltegirlruns.com but it didn’t feel quite right anymore, so when I took the leap into the land of semi-self hosted blogdom i went with “Snarky”. I have even changed Twitter as well, “Snarky” is where I started originally; it seemed like a good place to go back to in starting this new adventure.
That is a little bit about how I got started blogging. Now something about me personally:
- I am pushing 40
- I hate my job
- I love my Family (Dear Husband-DH and Dear Son-DS)
- I blog
- I craft
- I run at least I try to
- I am random
- I knit
