Whose Blog?

Before we begin, I’m sure you’re already asking yourself why I’ve sneezed all over my fancy new blog. That’s not actually a sneeze, it’s one of those words you say under your breath—kind of like “Loser!”—where you pretend to be discreet when really you want everyone to hear you.

My writing friends all know me as Hoo (those are the first three letters of my maiden name) so a couple years ago I mentioned my other blog one too many times, and a hyper bunny whisper-shouted:


And now here we are.

I’ll start posting regularly at the end of February once I’m back in Michigan and settled in my parents’ basement.

That’s right—I’ve become that cliché. Let the jokes begin.

    I love your header – so great! I’ve been sniffing around WordPress too, recently, but haven’t committed to anything yet. And I just pasted your URL into the “add subsciption” box in Google Reader. will it show you I’m following that way?

  2. Thanks all!

    Janna, I’m magic….

    Rachel, that’s how I typically follow WordPress blogs, too, but I don’t know if that appears to the author. I’d really like to figure that out.

    The only thing I’m not liking on this template is the GIANT font for the stuff at the bottom of the pages.

    Whenever I read Hoosblog, I immediately think, “Who’s Bad” from the Michael Jackson song and the song starts playing in my head. I did it. 🙂

  4. so you write barefoot? Going to the bar for Superbowl! It’s a Bar called ‘Rush Street’. Kinda lame, but us ‘transplants’ have to take what we can get. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
