Welcome to my bubble!

I'm thinking that snowballs are forming in hell as we speak, because I have begun blogging. I swore I never would, yet here I am!

I am a writer, so perhaps blogging should be a given for me. But I put it off for years, until some very amazing lady bloggers persuaded me that I needed a blog of my own. That story will come in a later post.

The purpose of my blog?
Hmmmmm. Well, I love to give my opinion. In the past, I had a large-scale forum to do just that (newspaper editorial column), but it's been many years. As friends and family will attest, telling people what I think is one of my, um, gifts; I'm back in the saddle, baby!

I will blog on important issues and on silly things. I will hit politics (Obama fans won't love me), religion (oh, do I love to talk theology!), family (got lots of family), matchmaking (tee
hee), and whatever other crazy thing pops to mind! Let's see how things shake out.

Quick prayer: Lord, please don't let my words hurt anyone in the process of writing this blog!

Meanwhile, I am so pleased that this inaugural post is being published on the holiest feast of the Church's liturgical calendar, the great Easter Vigil! My favorite day of the year!


Welcome, dear reader (and there may only be one, ha!), to my Little Catholic Bubble!


PS: Methinks my next post needs to be reflections on the Church sex abuse scandal. Be sure to check back, and in the meantime, have a most blessed and holy Easter!!

  6. Thanks, guys! I'm so glad to be here! Mad that the date on my first entry is wrong, though. Drat. I wanted it to reflect Easter Vigil. I am learning. If you write a draft, it uses the date from the first time you saved it! Sigh! :)

  8. Leila - I JUST learned that recently, too. My St. Patty's Day post was March 16th . . . I had no idea drafts were published that way.

  9. I love the blog name you chose. I'm a fan of opinionated blogs (when the opinions agree with mine- haha) and it sounds like we are two peas in a pod so I really look forward to reading! :)

  11. Can't wait to start reading!!!! Peer pressure works!!! And... I noticed the draft/date thing as well when I went to publish a draft... I believe you can manually enter the date. It made it the publish date correct for me. ;). Welcome!!!

  18. I plan to read your whole entire blog and thus learn to be a better and more opinionated blogger. :-)
