This one’s for you, folks.

Dear Reader,

Lurker. Commenter. Real Life Friend. Cyber Stalker. Whoever (whomever?) you are, whatever your reason for being here – I thank you. I know we’re only three entries in, a drop in the well of the blogosphere, but the outpouring of support I’ve received from you has been both humbling and touching.

In our living room, we have a framed postcard that reads, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone”. I purposefully displayed it in there so that I’d be forced to look at it on a daily basis. My comfort zone? Watching endless amounts of Bravo TV and creating extensive lists of “Coulda, shoulda, wouldas”. So here we are now with The Finer Points of Life, a fitting moniker for this undertaking if you ask me. This blog isn’t my typical writing style, which is simultaneously terrifying and exciting. As I step outside my standard blog formula (tequila jokes + Snooki + dropping off the face of the Internet for 6 months at a time), I hope you’ll stick with me. It might be a little bumpy for the next couple posts, but we’ll find our stride. With every entry, I’m finding my balance and authentic writing voice.

In the meantime, I just wanted to say,  ”thanks”. Two days before I posted my first entry, I created the blog’s Facebook page. Without those first several “likes” from you, I can’t guarantee I would’ve had the cojones to move forward with this. Basically, you rock.

With love,
your neighborhood neurotic blogger.

P.S. I’d also like to extend the very biggest of THANK YOUs to the lovely Sarah of Dodeline Designs. She did the legwork on this fabulous new blog design and answered all 2930810398132 of my emails in a timely manner. I’d highly recommend her for any of your blog or stationary needs. Looking at her stuff makes me want to get married all over again. Sigh.
