Under Pressure

Well, I've done it. I totally and completely caved. I am now a blogger. Apparently, I can't withstand the pressure. It was that way with Smugmug. It was that way with MySpace. And now it's that way with blogging. Everybody else is doing it and then they tell me I should do it and then I try to resist and then I cave. Welcome to the blogosphere!

I figure a blog is basically an online journal. Gone are the days of writing your thoughts and feelings in a little book with a lock that can easily be picked in two seconds with a wet noodle and trusting that nobody will ever see them without your consent. Now we bare our disgusting insides over the world wide web so that anyone who cares can mock them. Though I open my soul to the world, I'll actually be keeping a journal, so I suppose it's a good thing. We'll see if I'm more successful at keeping it online than in a book. Of course, if I fail, I fail with glory! Onward and upward!

The title of my blog comes from the Beatles song of the same name and I guess that song is partly my inspiration for this blog.

There are places I'll remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all.

Jared told me that you are now a blogger. I won't say if he said it in a mocking tone or not :). Of course, his next he told me that he had purchased the domain name for jaredandjennifrisby or something like that.

Andrea does all the blogging for us, I tend to just make sophomoric comments on them. I am resisting it like I resisted getting a cell phone.

I am sure Andrea would like you to check out her blog: (I think)

By the way, that is one of my favorite Beatles songs.

Ahhh. The Beatles. No one says it better. So glad you gave in to the peer pressure. Speaking of---want to run a marathon?
