I am a person who works best in the middle of things. I'm not such a good starter or a good finisher, but I know how to live it up in the middle. I think that is why creating a blog has been such an ordeal: in order to have a blog, I had to start a blog. And that meant not only picking a name for it, but also (oh horrors) writing a first post. (Not to mention creating a somewhat aesthetically pleasing layout, but owing to my severely crippled "scrapbooking-crafting-etc." gene, I imagine that this aspect will be a chronic work-in-progress.) I'm also ridiculously (and selectively) perfectionistic, so publishing these first few posts without re-reading them thousands of times is going to take an act of enormous will. My hope is that after "these first few" posts, I will have reached the beginning of the middle (or at least the end of the beginning) and loosened up a bit.
