Well I'm No Diana Prince

I've been pondering writing a post about how I came to blogging, and how interesting it is that I have never told anyone that I have a blog.

I was listening to NPR (oh yeah, I'm one of those people) and the interviewee was talking about the fact that both she and her husband had blogs and that in many ways they now communicated better because of their blogs. He traveled and she stayed home and so they got to keep up on each other's days and nights. It sounded nice.

Add to that the fact that I've always liked the idea of a diary and you arrive at me blogging.

So what does Wonder Woman have to do with me and my blog? Well as I've said, I've never told anyone about my blog. It's been for me, well and you guys - but mostly for me. And it's not that I didn't want anyone to know, but I did decide not to use my real name (I know, totally shocked that Mandy Lou isn't my real name!) -in fact it's a name that most of my family and friends would not dare to call me! So in some ways I had a secret identity, just like Diana Prince - though I'm not sure if I'm a blogging Wonder Woman...

Anyway - as I was saying I've been planning to write this post for a while, but my secret identity was blown yesterday.

Some of you might be wondering why a new reader/commenter named Mer knew most of my favorite movies and didn't get any linky-love for her very correct answers. Well, she didn't get any love cause she doesn't have a blog and she knew the movies cause she's my sister!

So everyone, say hi to Mer!

Thanks Diana for the insight into your blogging beginnings...

You are SO SMART to keep your blog secret, sometimes I really wish I had done that. But I mainly started my blog for a different reason (to share Anthony with my family who lives far away) but as it has come about, I more like the diary part of it where I can just write about anything, only I can't write about anything because I never know who's reading.

So did you tell your sis about the blog, or did she discover it?

How can you blog almost everyday and not have Scott know? You are very sneaky.

I don't even use the word blog around people I know, including my family. Not that I think I necessarily spill things about myself (well, to some degree), but I just don't want the "Why are you telling strangers about your life?" conversations, which I know my dear mother would pose!

Then I think "Wow, you're a grown up, what does it matter?!"

But it does!
