Conquering my NV envy

I have a problem.  

My Most Excellent Friend, Nik, has something that I want.  No, I don't want it, I need it.  I drool over it, I dream about it, I obsess about it in every free moment.  There are very few things in this world that a MEF won't do for you but I can't ask her for this.  What she has is very personal and not something you just ask for from a friend.  She has the most amazing blog and I want one.  I want to be just like her and I want one of the coolest blogs that anyone has ever read.

I told her once that I wanted to start a blog but that I was scared that I wouldn't be able to blog on her level.  Nik gave me the best piece of advice that I could have ever gotten.  She wisely said, "It's not about competition, it all about sharing!"  And with that one simple sentence, she started an obsession. 

I've started to create this blog several times and for one reason or another, I have chickened out (whining voice in my head - what if nobody reads it?).  Now is the time to do something about it.  I'm losing sleep over this and I need to get all of these ideas out of my head and onto the world wide web so that I can finally get some rest!  It only took me 3 months to work up the courage to create the blog.

Now, I only have to work up the courage to hit the publish button!

Welcome to the blogosphere, MEF. I'm SO proud to have been a catalyst of some sort for this. Isn't it a blast?! Looking forward to many future posts.

NV - Thanks for the encouragement and I have to admit that it is kind of an addiction once you get started! This is one of those things that I will continue to obsess over because - well, because that is who I am!
