Wow, talk about the ultimate time-waster: It took me half a day to figure out how to get my shiny new Twitter feed (twitter.com/SinCityRose) into this blog’s sidebar. (Meantime, it took all of 45 seconds to set up my Twitter account.) Oh well; the important thing is it’s up and running, right? Right.
Oh! I also registered a domain (!), which means you don’t need to remember my wonky WordPress URL anymore — just sleeplessinsincity.com. Fancy, I know!
OK, so the blog is up, the Twitter account is up… all that remains to be done is I need to get my act together — ie: get out there. I admit, I’m kind of terrified. I’ve been nursing a broken heart for a while, and am pretty disillusioned when it comes to dating (in Las Vegas, especially). And all of this nerding-out building a blog and reading about Google Analytics at home in my PJs has been a nice break from the after-work grind of trying to find a man But! I am determined to push myself, here. Much like a diet diary, this public forum will force me to keep going, even when I’m discouraged.
During the next few days, I’m going to register for all sorts of dating sites, singles groups and other 98% guaranteed calamities-in-the-making. (What can I say? I’m borderline desperate, here, and a glutton for punishment—a dangerous combination!) I know it sounds like a disaster (or multiple disasters!) waiting to happen, but I figure, what do I have to lose? Pride? Well, maybe. But my ego will get over it. And if (IF!) I’m lucky, this little experiment will lead to some sort of long-term happiness. My fingers are crossed; please cross yours, too. In exchange, I promise to keep you all posted.
Til next time,
