Who is Ellen Cabot?

How can I define myself…

Wife.  Mother.  Programmer.  Atheist.  Demopublican?  Brutally Honest.  Hard Worker.  Optimist.

I have stuff to say.  I am not a writer, but people seem to think that I am a really good blogger; apparently others relate to me well, so I  am convinced that blogging is my best outlet.

I used to blog for the website Families.com, about adoption as we were working our way through the process.  However, being required to submit a certain number of blogs per month on one specific topic was really difficult for me.  I realized that when I had nothing to say about said topic… well… then I had nothing to say.  When I started writing about things I really had no interest in writing about and pulling topics out of thin air just to make that quota, my writing suffered.  I started submitting blogs I wasn’t proud of, or even slightly satisfied with, and I decided I needed to give it up.  It was too stressful for me, and not fair to the reader.

I have a friend who blogs here on wordpress, and I was trying to find an app for my phone that would allow me to follow her blog.  I need reminders, I can be forgetful.  So, I downloaded a WordPress app, and it wanted me to create a login for myself, and lo and behold ELLENCABOT.COM WAS AVAILABLE!!  What are the odds?!  So, I grabbed it while it was up for the grabbing.

Then I realized I had a blog, and I thought maybe I should do something with it.

So… here it is…

At least here I can blog about whatever I want, whenever I want, so I shouldn’t run out of things to say.

“Real Life” will be a regular discussion point here.  I might talk about cats sometimes.  Light bulbs? Probably not…  one of my children gave me the name, and I like it so I think I’ll keep it.  🙂

Oh, and I will probably occasionally talk about travel, because sometimes we just like to go places!

*** By the way: Ellen Cabot is a pen name.  Don’t try and Google me, you’ll find a director responsible for such hits as “Beach Babes 2: Cave Girl Island” & “Test Tube Teens from the Year 2000” ***
