Why Blog?

WELCOME to Manter to Manhattan!  I am commencing my blog with my reasons for it’s creation.  The truth is I am trying to rationalize blogging with myself.

  1. First and Foremost, I am about to undergo change … big change … ALOT of BIG change.  Change big enough it warrants documentation.  Details about this change and the associated anxiety attacks will be saved for a later post.
  2. I am anti-routine forms of social media but like to believe a few people want to know about my life.
  3. Food!!! I love to cook, I love to eat, I love to take pictures of my food, and I just don’t have enough people to share this obsession with.
  4. I need to take ownership in something.  I am aware this desire is probably just my need to be controlling in a time period of my life when I have no control whatsoever.
  5. Self-Improvement. If I had to sum up my feelings towards writing, it would be “vomituous” (may or may not be a made up word).  Maybe if I put my writing out there for everyone to critique the anxiety will subside?
  6. Those who know me best would say I am extremely introverted and self-conscious.  I am sure you are thinking these traits don’t mix with blogging.  However, we all know the empowerment that and devleopment comes from stepping out of your box.

Here goes nothing …

  1. Clara, so impressed! I am actually a little jealous as I have secretly wanted to write forever, but just always shied from taking the plunge for anyone but myself! What a great way to take some control, as you say! Thanks for sharing your adventure!

  2. So glad your mom shared your blog on Facebook so now I can follow along! Beware…blogging can take a little (lot) more time than you expect! Ryan might get a little (lot) annoyed with my blogging habit from time to time!

    • Yes, I am definitely aware of the time drain I just set myself up for. I am not sure why I decided to start it in the middle of this chaotic time. I would definitely be open to an blogging tips you have.

  3. I am looking forward to all your future entries! Congrats on all the big changes in your life!
    If anyone can do it, it would be you! You have always been smart and successful and I am sure it will continue on. I wish you love and happiness. Not luck, because I don’t think you will need it!
