I think this is the beginning of a wonderful friendship.

Or not. We’ll have to see about that.

As this is my first post, I should explain a little bit and see if I make sense. At least to myself.

I’m eighteen years old, I just gradutated high-school a couple months ago, and I live really far from the US. I’m American, I plan on going to college in the US but I have a year to go. A year during which I’ll be working in crap jobs and not doing much of anything. Maybe partying some.

I need something to do in this year. I need a project. So this will be it. I’ll try to do this and I’ll see how it goes. My ultimate goal is to buy a domain and open my own website, a blog that won’t be in a common-use blogging website. But before I get anywhere near that sort of commitment, I have to see if anyone in the world will give a damn about what I’m writing.

What will I be writing? Well, as the title might have tipped you off, I’ll be writing random musings. I’ll focus on a topic every post and write about it. It will be silly, stupid, slightly ignorant, but all in good fun and all of it reflecting my actual thoughts and opinions on things.

The topic of this first post was obvious I should think – I really don’t have a clue what I’m doing, but I’m going to try to do it anyway.

  1. First: you need an about me page 😀

    This post sounds very much like one of my first ones on wordpress. The – Who’s ever going to read this thought. I don’t think its the point of a blog to get readers, I think you should write because it feels right, but thats a personal opinion.

    Im going to tell you the same thing my first commentor did and it is true, people will find you and they will comment and it will make you happy. I like reading blogs and you should definetly carry on writing.

    Im going to add you to my blog roll so people can begin to find you.

    I’m quite speechless.

    Thank you. So. Much. You’re so nice. Thank you for the encouragement, really, truly, sincerely.

    I’m not doing it for the readers, I’m really doing it to improve my writing. But more readers will show me that I’m improving in a way.

    Good luck! I agree that writing for yourself is the key ingredient. May your blogging be happy and fruitful 🙂 I’ll keep checking back.

    PS: Where are you? You say you’re American but not in America! Not that I find that strange, like some people do – you know, the “Why would you want to leave America?” mentality. I’m just curious because I spent several years in the UK and I’m down with the whole multinational, expat thing.

    Thank you so much! I’m glad you’ll check back :).

    I live in Israel actually. My family moved here when I was three and we’ve lived here [with long vacations every chance we get] since then.
