I didn’t think I would ever do this.
Let’s face it. I have been a blogger of one kind or another since back in the days of xanga. I have ranged from everyone reading being someone I know to no one reading being anyone I’ve met to some mutation of the two.
It’s never been 100% public. Until now.
What you see before you is the last year or so of what I had to say. The stuff before that? Doesn’t matter.
I mean, sure, it matters in an existential “I’m who I am because of those ‘before’ things,” but doesn’t so much matter in a “let’s show this to everyone” way. That part of me, while still there on the interwebs, will be just….there on the interwebs. A memory. Fading, as memories are wont to do.
So why change my mind now? Impulse I suppose.
The thing is, I already know there are those who won’t like or will disapprove of what I say/how I say it, of what I do, of who I am. And that’s fine. Don’t like? Don’t look.
But this is me. At one point in my life, I wasn’t entirely sure who “me” was, but I know the answer now.
Hi, I’m Ann. I would like to know you. Welcome.
Welcome to the jungle. We take it day by day.
