What is blotting anyways?

A few days ago I announced that I was going to start blogging again. I made this announcement via Twitter. I also happened to use my "smart" phone to post said announcement. It went something like this, "I think I am going to start blogging again." Trouble is, my (ahem) smart phone didn't recognize the word "blogging" and changed it to "blotting" and before I realized the change had been made, the tweet was sent. You can imagine how that went. If you use Twitter, you know what it's like to have smart ass friends follow you and jump onto a mis-tweet as if I don't fumble over my words all the time.

The interpretations were all pretty much the same. Since when did I call it blotting and why would I announce it to Twitterverse. Yeah. Nevermind that I immediately corrected the blunder so that everyone would know I had meant to write "blogging". And people wonder why I never stuck with the last four blogs I started.

Anyhow, today, as I was brainstorming on what to name my new BLOG, I decided to hit up my tweeps on Twitter to get my creative juices flowing. I kept coming back to "Call Me Crazy" because this blog will at time be about me acting crazy but I felt like I shouldn't be labeling myself as crazy like that. It's one thing to get comfortable with reality, quite another to be defined by certain disadvantages.

Well, the suggestion came up to call it Blotting as a nod to the recent misunderstanding. Cute I thought. I like it. Yet, I was still stuck on the idea of somehow alluding to craziness and someone suggested this name. Blotting Like Crazy. Perfect. For lots of reasons.

So, welcome to my new blog. It will be about my life. Often about the space between my ears and how what goes on up there doesn't define me, but, it does affect me. With any luck, I will stick with this one for a bit. We shall see.
