If I build it, will you come?

Hello?
Is anyone there?
Hello?
Gee, it’s really quiet. Actually, a little too quiet. I can almost hear an echo.
Hello? *shakes computer screen*

Figures.
Dead silence.
There’s no one here except me.

I guess if I was smart, I would have stayed on a major metropolitan newspaper site, with live readership and played it safe. But, I’ve never been predictable. Not that I’m not intelligent, I’m just a risk taker. I listen to my gut and take a leap.

So here I am. All by myself. And, while it’s a little lonely, it’s also very liberating.

I’ve spent the majority of my working years (all 27 of them) in the advertising and marketing world. All that experience has taught me to be a realist. You can’t just launch a blog and hope that you’ll have readers. But, I am.

I have one wish for the new year: I plan to build this blog and hope that you will join me. I have big plans.

First, I hope to continue to share all the joy, laughter, trials and tribulations we have at the CB home every day. I’d like to expand on my first 2 1/2 years of storysharing by introducing you to the the other side of my world: that of a successful businesswoman that juggles lots of balls in a male-dominated world (no pun intended). Finally, philanthropy is a big deal to me. I hope over time that some of my favorite causes become yours. In fact, every penny generated by this blog will be donated to charity.

So, are you in? Will you stay for a week or two? If I build this, will you come?
