It’s me, Idalia. You remember?! ‘member!
I know, I know been gone for way to long (a little shy of 6 months but who’s counting). I was surfing the net one night (when I should have been sleeping) and stumbled on a couple of blog sites that introduce people to other blogs: http://www.theladybloggers.com/, http://www.blogsbylatinas.com/ and http://latinablogs.gotop100.com/. Searching through the countless blogs kept bringing me to the place where I knew I wanted to be…in front of my computer blogging about reading these blogs that others were blogging about. I love blogging but it takes a lot of discipline, dedication and time. Anyone that knows me now knows that time is of the essence and I need to choose wisely what to do with my “down time.” I am partaking in the Tossing It Out challenge for April: basically you blog for every day except Sundays in April and you will end up with 26 blog entries. One for every letter of the alphabet. Cool, huh? Anyway, to reacquaint myself with my readers here a few things about me(a-z):
