The First Post

Hello, Blogosphere!


Hello?  Hello! *tap tap* Is this thing on?

*crickets chirping*

Blogosphere! I will NOT be ignored!

*snort* *cough* Huh?

Well, it’s about time. Where have you been?

Hey, I fell asleep waiting for you to finally finish your fricking blog.

Yeah, well you didn’t warn me when I picked my platform that I was going to have to figure out HTML coding in a week. In. A. Week.

Cry me a river, girlie. You’ve got friends…well, okay, two–


–but at least one of those two knows a little bit about computers. You could have gotten help.

I do it mySELF!

Is this whining the only reason you woke me up? I was dreaming about Charlie Sheen again.

You know, if you’re not nice to me, I’ll go somewhere else.

Yeah, right. Where you gonna go, huh? I’m the fricking BLOGOSPHERE. I’m fricking huge! I rule! One Blogosphere to rule them all!

*taps foot* Are you through? Can we get on with this now? I have work to do.

Like writing? Oh, wait. You’re spending all of your time with ME now. MWHAHAHAHA!

*crosses arms*

Okay, okay. Sheesh. No sense of humor. *rummages around* *finds notes* Ummm…okay…  Hello, Betsy.

Hello, Blogosphere.

So, um, this is your new blog, hey?

Yes it is!

Uh huh. And I see here that you are a… does this say “roman writer?” Really? I didn’t know Horvath was Italian.

It’s Hungarian. And you know perfectly well that I’m a romance writer.

Yeah. *sneer*

Oh, oh I SO have a few things to say to you about that.  You and me, Blogosphere, talkin’ about the romance. You just wait.


I’m serious. Plus I figure we’ll chat aobut writing and reading and working and life.

Well, that narrows it down.

And cats.

Of COURSE cats. Why am I not fricking surprised? You probably have a hundred of them.

Only four.


You know what? I think we’re finished here for today. I can’t even deal with you right now.

Not too many people can.

*heavy sigh* And I was going to start my blog off with a quote.

Well, you shoulda. Then I could’ve totally ignored you.

A nice quote from Alice in Wonderland. Lewis Carroll? It goes – “the time has come, the walrus said, to speak of many things. Of shoes and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings.”  I’ve just been waiting to use that quote somewhere. But nooooo. I have to talk to you instead.

Hey, no skin off my nose…er, noses. You should have stuck with the classics.

I thought people would think I was calling myself a walrus.

You know, I’ve been meaning to talk–

*shoves Blogosphere out of post*

Okay, well. Um, this concludes my first post.

Thank you. 


  1. LOVE IT! And – you quoted Alice! Yeay yeay yeay! 🙂

    • Thank you, my friend! I’m glad that you liked it!!! Can posts about cats be far behind? (no, actually, they can’t)

  2. What a great way to start your blog… and my morning!

    Looking forward to following your journey!

    Congrats on kicking off the new blog!

    • Thanks Lynda! I’m soooo glad you liked the post…I was stewing about how to kick off the blog – because you never have a second chance to make a first impression. Then there was this tapping, tap-tap-tapping on my door and the Blogosphere was standing right there glowering at me. Wow, who knew? 🙂

  3. Hi Betsy! Congrats on your new blog! Looking forward to future posts.

  4. Utterly enjoyable! (Can’t say I have gotten to talk to Bloggie!) Keep up the great work! Thanks for sharing your genius with the world at large.

    • Well, now I’m not sure I’d call it GENIUS….*blush* *scuffs shoe on floor* Shucks. But thank you! I’m glad you liked it! (way to give me something to live up to – ROFLMAO)
