I think it makes complete sense to try to sort out who I am. Wait.. did that make sense?
Let me try this again..
After surveying my facebook "Destination Unknown" fan page, and Network Blog followers, my Blogger/Google followers and what not - I realized that over half of you - I DO NOT KNOW! exciting, and weird all at the same time.
I love to share my thoughts with a captive audience, but at the same time I need a disclaimer. Many of you may not know where I am "coming from" or what is going on or.. anything like that.
Since we clearly will not have the opportunity to make "official" acquaintance, I thought I would answer one of those silly surveys about me!
If you are just stopping by for the first time, it might be nice to know more about the girl - the destination - and why oh why there is no set format.
Yep - clearly there is NO method to the madness. ;-)
Sooo.. here you go. Me in a nut shell. But please oh please.. I want to know what you and I might have in common. Please let me know in the comment section!
