February 28, 2006
My first blog post - that I can find - was dated February 28, 2006. The blog was called Rome-ing Catholics. I began blogging for the company I worked for at the time The blogging took over. It really did. I screwed up. It was a huge mistake and I wish I could undo it.
I've been blogging for ten years now.
What a waste.
I just told a friend: I'm always a bit embarrassed when I find out people read my blog, since I've revealed far too much about myself and I often regret having written about people, places, and events which I probably never should have mentioned. And I've been wrong about more things than I've been right about. I claim that 'writing helps me think' stealing the line from Pope Benedict. We'll see how long I can use that one.
I think I've unraveled a lot about my life - so there is something cathartic about that - I'm not sure it ever needed to be made public.
Anyway. Attempts at making amends have fallen short as well.
Like the woman at the well ...
