Blogging experience

I have two brothers who have blogs of their own. It never ocurred to me to have one of my own until now. With my move to Madrid on the 7th of June, I've always had an idea of writing something on the back of my mind, but I never imagined the idea of putting it on a blog for others to read. But after reading my brother's blogs and seeing examples of other blogs in the blogworld, it seemed like a fun idea. Besides, why not?
There are no deadlines, editors, or professors to be worried about checking over my writings. But the appeal I find in this whole process is seeing something I've written actually published, albeit, in this blog format. Almost everyone wants to be a writer and if anything, this provides the easiest arena to lend us that opportunity. So here I am with the hopes to be as articulate and eloquent with my experiences that I am willing to share and for those willing to read.

My wife and I have a bit over a month left before our move to Madrid and I think I'm starting to feel a little stress over the idea. It's not from lack of excitement, but more from the idea of getting all the necessary things done before our departure. Everytime I'm about to make a trip, I always have a feeling that I am forgotting something. With our major move, this experience is amplified. But I feel really good that we're moving. This has been in our plans for the last 2 to 3 years and I feel great this moment has finally arrived.
