In the beginning...

I did it. I started a blog. It's a journal, folks. Not that my life is that interesting, but my someday grandkids will enjoy reading it just as much as I enjoy reading through my granny's old 'calendars' as she called them.

I jot stuff down in Word docs anyway when I want to remember something. I find that I'm interested in the lives of others. I read blogs all the time. Up until now, I've been a lurker/casual commenter. So I felt guilty. It's time to give back, I suppose.

Putting what comes out of your head and your heart out there for others to see is a scary thing. Least it is to me.

We'll have to see what comes of it.

Why 'Sugar Britches'? I'm not sure I'll ever tell. Let's see how we get on, huh?

Hey Sugar Britches, please describe how you come to list a whole pile of Irish bloggers in your roll.

Is you Irish too? Like us'n?

Sugar Britches said...

Wow! That was fast...

No, I'm not Irish. I just hang out in your neck of the woods and enjoy the education. I actually have a post in draft about what all I've learned about the world just be lurking in your world. I happened upon you all by accident and just sort of stayed. Hope you don't mind the listing. Being new to this sort of thing, I need to know. I wouldn't want to offend.

Thanks for saying Hi.

Bock the Robber said...

Not in the slightest. It's nice to be noticed.

Primal Sneeze said...

Like Bock, I was wondering about that too. All either Irish or Irish based bloggers.

I figured the connection was Eolaí - he being Irish but based in Missouri. Was I right? Was I? Huh? Was I?

Oh, and how the hell do you handle the, sometimes heavy, Hiberno-English not having any Irish connections?

Anyway, a belated welcome to blogland. I'll get you linked up in a few mins.

Hiya, Sneezy.

You know, I had no idea when I listed a handful of blogs that I'd be tagged. ...told you I was new. I thought I'd hide out for awhile and feel my oats a little before I stuck my neck out. So, much for that!

Yeah, it was Eolai and his sexy search engine ways. I was googling a number for a bar and ended up on irishkc. I stayed there for the next 2 days and from there I have been all over Ireland. You can travel a fair distance in cyberspace.

I understand ya just fine. Except when you start speaking Irish-then I have to move on. Don't forget, living in the States, we change the English language all the time. It's when you bunch talk politics I have to rush over to Wikipedia.

PLEASE, don't feel obligated to list me. But, thanks for stopping by.

Bock the Robber said...

Yeah. I figured it was Eolaí too.

Kansas City, Missouri. A tiny - but incredibly clever - bit of detective work on which, even as we speak, I'm being interviewed for the documentary.

So, Mister Bock, when did you first realise . . .

I assume you mean Irish KC, not the bar ;)

Sugar Britches said...

No, I meant the bar :)
