My introduction to blogging; Take Two (or, Things never seem to work out the first time)

Thus is the story of my life. I joined Blogger against my will, and now I can’t get it to work. Stop me if you’ve heard this…

I created a blog when I joined. I called it, “Runaway Toad.” As soon as I logged off, it ran away. I hadn’t even posted anything yet. I wanted to compose my thoughts first. The next day I go back, log in, and I have no blogs. Wtf.

I can find the blog. It says that the owner is “Victor Allen Winters.” I check the name sewn into the lining of my undershorts, and sure enough, my name is Victor Allen Winters (that or BVD). So I email Blogger and wait. While I wait, I browse around looking at all of the blogs and guess what I find out? For possibly the first time in my life, I’m not the only one with this problem.

So what do I do? Do I continue waiting for the powers that be to decide whether or not to return my blog to my eager, grasping hands? Or do I create a new one and continue on? I’ll miss the name—I agonized over it—but the answer should be obvious by now.

My next post was take one—I’m taking five.

I’ll be in my trailer.

I just wanted to be the first person on your blog. Hey, Vic, it's Liz. I'll be checking back later.
