Look Ma, I made the news!

And of course I would make this face …..

I’ve been putting this off for way too long

Alas the time has come for me to once again enter the blogosphere.

I’ve had blogs in the past. My first blog was a class assignment for an online media journalism course, the content of which can be found at nicoleethierarchive.wordpress.com. I chose to cover “all things food,” and that was the nifty little title I came up with before realizing it blatantly resembled the title of the NPR program “All Things Considered.” (And I thought I was so clever.)

Another blog I had was also a class assignment in which I covered print media and the transition into the digital world. The content of which may be found at blogs.startupmedia.org/nicole.

My point is:
I’ve blogged before. Never for enjoyment but rather as an assignment,  something I am required to do. Just as I didn’t appreciate reading literature all throughout my formal K through 12th grade education — it isn’t until I am no longer required to do something that I actually have an desire to do it.

And I actually might enjoy it.

And I actually might seek it out on my own accord.

I feel that much of life is ironic in this way.  We don’t always appreciate it, until that something is gone. We grow up dreading many things that we later come to enjoy as adults. And on that note, I will catch back up with you later.
