Emily Doodles - Advertising Exec, Sister, Daughter and Now ... BLOGGER!

Well, I've finally given in to my urge to start a blog. I always read the blogs of my family and friends and have decided to put my thoughts into words too.

I have all the hesitations of a first-time blogger. "Do I have enough interesting things in my life to blog about?" "Will people read it?" I know my mom and sister, Amanda ,will check in every once in a while, so that's enough for me to give this a shot. :)

Maybe I'll gain some readers other than family too and everyone can get a glimpse of things they don't already know about me: my job (should be fun!), family, friends, getting in shape, my failed marriage and my journey through it all. I'll try to keep it interesting and inspiring.

By the way, you may be wondering where my blog name comes from. Well, my Aunt Brenda gave me the name, Doodles, when I was really little and I think it still fits me today. When you think of someone who "doodles," they may be doodling on paper or doodling around when everyone else is working (which my brother would tell you is completely accurate for me). :) I also like to think I'm doodling for work (or thinking creatively - I'm in advertising). So, that explains it.

Check back for the latest.

  12. Well, welcome girlfriend! I see blogging as getting things off my chest, besides Botos. Write down whatever is on your heart, I do and I think sometimes I shouldn't write it but oh well. I feel better and the comments from friends are simply the best! I'm not so good at them yet but I can always count on your sister...comments brighten my day, they will yours too! Soo...when we can gonna have girls night out? : )
