"Plunging headfirst" into the Blogging World

Hello! My name is Aimee Grove and I have just gotten into this crazy blogging world. I keep asking myself why I am starting a blog. I know that once I finish this entry and publish it that I have officially plunged head first into being a "blogger" . I am not a good writer, I never excelled at it in school or in my personal life but I have become enthralled by blogs so I figured I should just take the plunge.

 I started racking my brain and asking my boyfriend (who by the way is 100x more talented at writing than I am-visit his blog http://kevinisranting.blogspot.com) for advice on my first blog. What should I call it? What should my theme be? How often should I write? And the big one...Should I even write a blog at all? Well obviously the answer to that last question was a yes.

So enough with the back story and the disclaimers. Here is my short and sweet introduction:
Name: Aimee  
Age: 22  
About me: A recent college graduate (BA in Economics and Business-emphasis in Marketing) who now is an Account Executive for a small company that specializes in stock option management and accounting compliance software. My goal in life is to become a successful CFO, hopefully for a quick growth private company so that I can help them prepare for an IPO. As for my personal life, I live with my boyfriend and our roommate in a condo in southern CA with our two cats. I am happy hanging with my girls or my boyfriend, spending hours at a book store, going out to bars or lounges, watching/playing sports, reading blogs, or playing board games.

 **My cats! Sophie (top) and Mocha (bottom). They are my "kids" for now**

Behind the name: If you are familar with KROQ, more so the Kevin & Bean show, that is where my blog name came from. One of their segments is called "Thanks for that info Bean" because he is always going into a lot of detail about the most random things.
What the blog will be about: I haven't ironed out all the details but I know I am going to have themed days (it's the only way that I will be motivated to do this blog). My themed days however probably will not be alliterations (ie Wordless Wednesdays) Here are some of my ideas for themed days, I just need to narrow these down and pick nifty titles. Please let me know if you have any ideas.
  • Sports from a Girl's point of view
  • Design Day- My favorite blogs to read are those focused on Interior Design and Renovation (ie http://humbleablog.blogspot.com/). I can feature some of my favorite designs of the week if I don't have a current project I am working
  • Random Moments (Friday)- might be from my week or from a Bloggers
  • A "Blank" of the week-books, movies, businesses, candy, person, shape, blog etc.
  • Financial Talk and Tips
  • Just Vent- Sometimes you just need to vent...Followers can post their vents of the week here.
  • Dreams/Goals/Aspirations
This is just a basic list and some will not make the cut and if I get some good ideas from my followers then those will also be included. Oh and I will also try to learn how to make my blog spiffy.

Thanks for reading!



  1. Writing the first post is the hardest part, I think. This looks like a great one, though. :) Your cats are ADORBS!!! And I LOL'd when I read "Thanks for that info Bean." Best morning show evah!

  2. Rosemary,

    Thanks for dropping by. Yes, it wasnt as bad as I was expecting. Thx on the cats, they are my babies.

  3. Yay!! We are blog buddies!! Perhaps you can include Project Runway recaps...or one of our (and when I say our, I mean our mates) 'music videos!'

  4. Thats a good idea Dlo... I like that idea a lot. Fun times.

  5. Ok...here are all of your alliteration days.

    Mastabatory Mondays - Stories and anecdotes about the various times you've caught Kevin in the act.

    Two for Tuesdays - Stories about poop.

    Washington Wenesdays - Fun facts about our nation's first president....Andrew Jackson.

    Thesaurus Thursdays - A listing of synonyms for commonly used words. Each post will be accompanied by a Dinosaur mascot named "thesaurus rex"

    Fucking Friday - You tell a story of woe which ends with the phrase "Fucking Friday". Kind of like FML.

    Salad Dodger Saturday - Stories about fat people.

    Sunday - a day of rest.
