I finally did it

I have been planning to start a blog for the longest time and just kept putting it off. My sister Francine has her blog here and she has been behind me to start one since I saw hers and loved it. Then one of my best friends Sheryl-Ann started hers and kept asking me when I would start mine.

But starting a blog is a lot harder than it looks. First I could not think of what I wanted to blog about. Then they kept asking me what I would call it. Call it?? Oh I am supposed to put a title LOL. Ok, ok - I know I had to. So finally last night Sheryl and I started to kick some titles around and the idea of starting this actually seemed real to me. Then morning hit and I sitll had not finalized my title. Francine tried to help me come up with one and then it just came to me - Ole-Talk. So I looked it up in my Dictionary of Caribbean English Usage to see the definition. Ole-Talk (Old-Talk): Idle chatter; gossip; social chit-chat, mere rhetoric. And then it hit me - that's the perfect title for my blog.

So here I am finally - my very own blog. I hope Francine and Sheryl-Ann are happy.
