i always thought blogging was extremely narcissistic. you had to have a lot of self importance to think that other people wanted to read about you. i recently decided that i wanted to keep a log of my travels — favorite restaurants, photographs, experiences. i thought about a travel journal but opted for a blog so that when my friends and family asked “where are you this week?” i could say “check out my blog and you can see pictures.” a little self-serving but nonetheless here i am in the blogging world. stay tuned.
