Who Am I?
I’m a mom, a wife, a writer, and a liberal.
I live in the South.
In 2008 my state turned from red to blue.
Now I’m trying to be an optimistic liberal.
Let’s just say it’s a work in progress.
What Is A Beach Peanut?
A rare flower found in the South that lives in the sand,
also called a Burrowing Four-O’Clock.
Just a little metaphor of hope and optimism.
Why I Blog?
When I started this blog I wasn’t sure exactly where it would go. All I knew was that I was an extremely ticked off liberal and I was sick of simmering in that anger for eight years after Bush stole the election and began his quest to drive the country over a cliff. Adding to my frustration was most of the mainstream media who enabled him along the way. After years of screaming at politicians and “so called” pundits and talking heads through the television screen and barely controlling the urge to hurl shoes through it, family members suggested I start a blog. At first I laughed off the idea. Then I decided to give it a try.
Fast forward to the present. I’ve got to say venting is great. Who knew?
Now Bush is gone, and Obama is in, but the politicians and the media haven’t changed. In fact they’ve gotten worse. I’m still ticked off, and for good reason. So I will continue. For the time being, it seems that I will spend the greater amount of my blogging time on politics and the media. If just one person reads what I write and it makes them think, then hey, that’s great. If many more do, even better. Whatever. I’ll still be here typing out my thoughts through either anger, humor, or both. That’s just what works for me.
Oh, and one more thing. I’ve been asked about the pseudonym ”Inkberries.” (Also a plant.) If this were the “old days” of writing and typing, ink to paper, that’s what I would be doing. But it’s not. I think “Inkberries” just sounds better than say, F2-berries, Command-berries or Mac-Berries, don’t you think?
To those of you who’ve stopped by to read and comment, thank you!
What I write here is based on my opinion alone, no one else’s. Not those of family members, nor those of my friends. Mine alone.
