Starting this blog has been a long standing goal and labor of love for me. Problem was, I could not seem to figure out exactly what I could bring to the table: what could I share with an audience that is relevant, inspiring, funny or useful in any way. If I couldn’t address that basic need, there was no blog. At least not one I was going to put my stamp on.
As I was vaccuming at 8:00 this morning, before my hot yoga class the concept of Bogle Street hit me. Well, actually, I must admit that while I was vacuuming, my poodle was watching PBS (more on that later) and Sesame Street happened to be on.
What if I could create an online “neighborhood” with real life adult characters who visited, each bringing their own special and unique talents and sensibilities, and we formed a sort of online blog-o-hood with familiar friendly faces who entertained, educated and comforted an audience, just like Big Bird, Kermit and even Oscar the Grouch did for us when we were little.
Now that was something I would tune into. And it was born: Bogle Street….
What is this? Who is this? And Why??? This is me. Just how I am. Interested. A bit nutty. Neurotic. Passionate, driven and sensitive. I get into a mess many times, and get myself out, most times. Type A to the Nth degree. Fan of bad reality TV, cooking, fashion, design, the small things in life and having fun. Fan of good people and good times.
My role on Bogle street is a bit complicated. I aim to represent one of those actual live city people on the set of Sesame Street sometimes, steering the audience to what’s happening or coming next, “interviewing” guests, or helping dissect and issue or subject into it’s most relevant or interesting parts. Part host, part MC, participant and always there to comment or collaborate.
I could also see myself as Oscar the Grouch, but we won’t get into that just yet. But, first let me introduce you to the rest of the Bogle Street cast…
coming soon: Bogle Street….
