Let Me Introduce Myself

When I received my first assignment for Blogging 101, the theme song from the children’s television show Daniel Tiger immediately popped in my mind. (Weird, I know!)

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor. Would you be mine, could you be mine, would you be my neighbor.

Welcome blogging neighbor’s to my introduction post.

I began blogging years ago as my way to show off & occasionally sell my chinchillas. That was a somewhat successful blog that became obsolete when I decided to sell off my chinchilla herd. Changing the name and focusing more on weight loss, I was able to connect with a couple people on a similar journey. However, with a desire to feel more free to express myself openly on a variety of topics, I decided to go anonymous or Nonny Moose.

so much to do so much to see, won’t you ride along with me

I am a wife, a Mom, a Grandma, a nurse. I suffer from PCOS and anxiety & depression. My interests are varied and I tend to talk about whatever is on my mind at that particular moment. But, mainly, I ramble on about books, recipes, local area sites, weight loss, mental health, crafting, flowers and … well, anything and everything.

I got lots of friends for you and me, in this land of make believe, a friendly face on every streets just waiting to greet you.

I can see that some may wonder why go public if I am concerned about people reading my private thoughts. I guess that comes down to a little jealousy. I have a friend that blogs regularly and she connects with people all over the world. She has met up with many of them in person and even planned a trip internationally to visit a blogger friend. I want that … to meet people with my similar interests, to form a lasting friendship … even if those connections remain strictly online.

I do also have a private blog. A place where I am journaling memories and family photos to share with my family at a later date.

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor

For me, blogging is a guilty pleasure. My time … a break from all of life’s responsibilities.

Beyond connecting with people, my goals for both of my blogs are (of course) to learn how to write better. Sure, I want people to want to read what I write. But, in essence, it is still for me. I am not an English whiz. You will find that I like to use !! and … That will never change. I would also like to learn to take better photographs & to learn to do fancy things with my blog. Eventually, I would love to be able to use my blog to build an income … to quit my day job, without sacrificing the intent of the blog. That goal, I believe is a long way off.

There it is, the tip of the iceberg about me. Thanks for stopping by! I look forward to this new journey & to those who will be completing it with me … Good Luck. Have fun!

won’t you ride along with me (ride along..)


About nonnymoose2014

I have recently retired from the healthcare field, nursing. As I try to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, this seemed like the perfect time to try my hand at blogging again. In the past, my success (or lack thereof) I believe hinged on my fear of revealing too much about myself. I have a desire to “put it all out there” BUT I want to do it on my own terms … anonymously! Thus came Nonny Moose.

    • Hi BPNurse! I Must admit that I have been sitting here this afternoon basically bawling my eyes out reading your story. Very similar to my own in some ways. Thank you for your openness & honesty and for sharing your journey!
