Time for some blog confessions? Of course! There's always something to confess right? Even as a non-Catholic I've got that part straight. :) Okay. My confession is that I am a chicken. For a long time I've kind-of, sort-of been wishing I could be a writer. Let's face it, nobody puts as much work as I do into a blog without some kind of ulterior motive and I never wanted to admit that mine is because I really like writing. But now I'm 'fessing up: I like writing, or rather story-telling and communicating and I think I'm ready to start really trying to be a writer. What kind of writer, I don't know... but in the spirit of trying not to wuss out I actually submitted an application to be a paid guest blogger for ING Direct. And I took it seriously, thinking through my app carefully and EDITING the final document. This my friends is progress. And I blame all of you who read this blog. I blame you for all your sweet, kind comments and for all of you audacious enough to suggest that I should be writing a book about our little trip to meet Colombia. I blame you all for giving me the encouragement I needed to get serious.
Maybe I'll get the job and maybe I won't but trying is the first step. Thank you to each of you whose encouragement gave the courage to try. I'll let you know how it turns out.
