I do not watch much television, but I do love HBO's Game of Thrones. Even though I've just read the first three books in the series, I know that I will read all of them...eventually. And their ten episode season fits me perfectly. Give me enough story to keep me interested, but don't draw out details just to fill time.
And this past April, HBO made watching their programming much easier by offering HBO Now, the online stand-alone streaming service for people like me. People who do not want to pay the cable company for a television package filled with channels they will never watch. Instead of paying some ridiculous amount of money for a cable TV plan, I pay $16.20 after tax per month for access to all of HBO's programming.
I had been wanting to start a blog for a long time. Years. Blogging was up there with some of my best intentions...kind of like me telling myself every November that I will participate in NaNoWriMo. I will!
Last summer was the perfect time for me to start blogging. I had done my research on various platforms and felt confident in my decision to go with the SquarePants. I had been reading various blogs with helpful advice. I had been brainstorming ideas for posts. And then I paid for the subscription.
