Nervous First-Timer

Here I sit trying to decide how to begin my blog. Do I list a cast of characters? Do I begin as if I've been doing this for months and just plunge into this day? What is proper etiquette in the blogging world? Is there a special 'language' of terms that seasoned bloggers use? I feel a little out of my element. Please excuse the "OH-NOs" I know will happen.

OK Here goes. . .

After being single for a number of years, I married my bestest buddy. A perfect decision. I have two sons and he has a son and a daughter. We decided that our children wouldn't be mine-and-yours but that they'd all be ours. There are three beautiful grandchildren and another on the way. We have a kitty that allows us to live with her as long as we agree to her terms. There are also 2 live reefs in our house. One tank holds 190 gallons and the other 220. The reefs are Hubby's hobby.
If anyone happens to actually visit this blog and is curious about the tanks, I'll post a couple of pictures.

I think I'll let this post stand alone and move on as though I've been in the blogging world for years.

Welcome to the blog world. I would love to see pictures of your tanks. That's my husband's hobby also. I'll bet they are so pretty.
