Clearly I am brand new to blog culture and quite honestly, I still don't really "get it."
I do however enjoy it! The reasons why I started a blog are:
a) my friend told me a should because I talk to much about my dog
b) I have time on my hands and I am the type of gal who meets monkeys in
random parking lots
The one piece of advice told to me about blogging is that consistency is
key... oooops - I am a day late for my weekly blog post. But I woke up this
morning, slapped my wrist and here I am.
The story behind the title for my blog:
I have a rare medical condition (yea yea...I know - just put away your
mini-violin and keep reading)
I wasn't going to go "there" at all BUT the other day when my wife
and I were talking, I changed my mind.
Texting and driving is bad. But what's worse - the following conversation I
had with my wife while I was driving.
We are talking about my blog when my wife says I need to blog about the
title. I explain to her that I don't want to go into things about my health and
she says ... wait for it! ....
I MUST because people might misinterpret it and think that by "Big
Heart" I mean kind person.
I'm thinking "uuuh yea that is in part why I picked it" and she
goes on to explain that it's not a good title because it's not true ...
Uuuum what? She looks at my face (my super kind, natural, thoughtful, big hearted
face of course!) and continues to dig her hole even deeper as I try to
manoeuvre the vehicle while full of rage. She lost a few points that day.
So anyway - To be clear the title is not because I am a generous and giving
person - I would hate to mislead you - it is because I have a rare heart
condition, and I literally have a big heart. And since we are getting super
technical about it - Sudbury Ontario isn't really THAT small. I just thought
"Big Heart in a Small Town" had a better ring to it than "Restrictive
Cardiomyopathy in a City with a Population of 125 Thousand"
What do you think?
