Maybe in this case, it’s the pouring of the cup—the Cuppa Jolie! Okay, get on with it already.
Just like that, a person (like me) decides they want a blog and can have one. How ‘bout that? Just give it a name, type in a few words, and wahlah, it’s mine! Cuppa Jolie. Whether someone wants to read it or not. Yikes. Both are scary thoughts. Do I want people reading (especially ones I know) these posts? I guess that would be a yes and a no. I don’t exactly want a blog that no one wants to read, and yet the people I know (and like) will be reading all my random thoughts (good, bad, and ugly).
So, thank you, Jim Di Bartolo, Laini Taylor, and Jaime Temairik for being my blog pushers. These lovely people gave me a shove into the Blog World. So, guys, you asked for it, but did you really know what you were asking for? And, I have to wonder, why? Did the three of you want me to hop on the blog wagon with all of you or did you actually think I would have something interesting to say? And, don’t lie. Actually, I’m pretty sure it’s because when you put my name in one of your posts, you could only link to a dull bio or nothing at all.
If you plan to read on, now or in the future, you should know the following: I’m super good at skipping words, misspelling words, and goofing up punctuation. But there is no way I could blog if I had to also proof and edit. So, my posts are what they are. If my goofs will bug you, this is not the place to be, but if my humanness (or my screw ups) is cool with you, then yay, I hope you visit often.
The plan for this crazy little blog is as the description reads: Books. People. Coffee. Because, ahhh! I love them all.
I love to read ‘em. Write ‘em. And truly, I love the people who write ‘em, edit ‘em, design ‘em, agent ‘em, and read ‘em. Book people rock!
They fascinate-charm-captivate me. I think that’s why I’m drawn to do the things I am. I love, love, love to people watch, but not in a creepy way. I like to think of it as in a scholarly way. I pay attention to what people do, how they react, and always think about why. The why is the best part. Many times, that’s where story comes from (at least for me).
I can’t start my day without it. I’m a caffeine junkie. Okay, I’m not exactly out of control. But my hubbie does say, I’m on the bean. He’s right and I have no plans to get off. My favorite place to write is in a coffee house with all its glorious white noise and busyness. And, hey, what better place to people watch. I get all my favorites in one place.
Cheers! I raise my cup to clink with all my fellow bloggers and blog readers. I’m happy to be here. Ching!
In the next few days you can look forward to an interview with the lovely Laini Taylor, as well as my first Baristas and Books post where I’ll feature two of the baristas from my number one top writing spot, The Vault.
Time to go and refill my cup.
