Do You Remember Why You Started Blogging?

I could do a nice in-depth list on what drew me to the blogging world. I do like to make lists. It's probably my Type-A personality. But this isn't a list kind of post. This is the story of why I started blogging. I've told bits and pieces of this story on and off since the blog began. Particularly when I was trying to brand the blog and figure out what I was doing.

I'm Coming Out, Again, After Getting a Divorce
