I will state right now that I have little confidence in my own ability to promote myself, so bear with me and my quaint, old-fashioned ways. I don't even own a cell phone, an iPod, iPad or any other handheld device, nor do I have, or wish to have, a twitter account. I do, however, have a facebook page, so I am not totally ignorant of the ways of the modern world. Just mostly :)
I also do not feel a lack for not having all these modern conveniences in my life. I rather enjoy not having everyone know what I do 24/7, and I find the ability to actually be out of reach for non-emergencies very refreshing. In the event that someone truly needs to talk to me, I have a landline with an answering machine, and it's worked just fine for the last 20 years since I moved out of my parent's home. (In a true emergency, my husband has a cell phone, and he usually knows where I am, so he keeps me in touch too.)
Well, if the purpose of a blog is to state what's on my mind, then I will consider this first attempt as a success. If, however, I've missed the point entirely ... well, that wouldn't surprise me either.
