Here It Is!

Welcome, friends!!!

At long last, I've started a personal blog. I've been around the blogging world for awhile, posting around cyberspace on friends' blogs or on group blogs, but I never had a place of my own to call home.

I still don't know if I've done everything right in creating the blog. I suspect that I'll look down on my keyboard any minute now and see a few spare parts that didn't get used in the assembly of the thing.

Why mudpies and magnolias?

Just wanted something that meant "southern" to me, something that was both messy and pretty, black and white, and just about everything in between. I am from coastal Georgia, freelance for our weekly newspaper, and teach a yoga class for our fledgling YMCA. And I write books.

Nothing better than getting paid to make stuff up.

Anyway, I've officially taken the plunge. My shingle is out there in cyberspace.
