Thank you.

I took an hour or two to catch up on my BlogLovin’ feed this weekend, and I was totally inspired by the thank you lists that I saw on so many of my favourite blogs.

Lots of them are American, and they’re obviously all very thankful at this precise moment because of Thanksgiving, but I guess their lists took me a bit by surprise.

Trouble is, I’ve realized, I’ve never really been known for my cleverness or my wit. That’s probably why, in the time it’s taken me to get to these 76 agonizing words, I’ve already finished the glass of wine and the bowl of cashew nuts. Whoops.

*Pauses for refill*

So maybe I should just stick to what I’m good at. Actually, scrap ‘what I’m good at’ and replace with ‘what I’d like to read about myself’. I’ve just about wrapped my head around Google Analytics, so I suppose that’ll tell me whether I’m any good at writing about what I like reading about, or something.
