2) It's so very public. I mean I realize that's the point here of course. But still. I am used to editing my written thoughts for a year and a half or so before they go out there into the world.
3) The world of book publishing turns out to be a crazy, complex one, and I long not to offend anyone.
4) Blogs whose main goal is not to offend anyone are probably pretty boring.
5) Eh, I worry generally. About everything. So my nervousness here probably shouldn't shock or concern anyone.
All that said, welcome!, whoever you are. I am thrilled you're here, grateful for your interest and support, and eager to blog many offensive and non-worrisome things any minute now.
