My First Attemp at Blogging



Blogs are all the rage these days.


Somehow the thought of me having one has never appealed to me. I have only recently even began to read blogs. One has to be extremely interesting to keep my attention. I guess it is the same as reading someone's newspaper column.


I sometimes wonder if those who have blogs and write well have a hidden desire to be discovered as writers. Or are blogs sort of like writing in a journal or a dairy, except making those thoughts public. Whatever the reasons, it is all new to me.


I suppose if I can discipline myself some to do this it will only produce my normal daily dealings in the world or perhaps some personal reflections. For this to be fun for me I can't enter into it from a writer's mindset checking spelling, sentence structure, topic sentences, etc.


I have a tendancy to do that and it will take me forever to write anything. I am my own worst critic. I would never allow anyone to read something I wrote in it's first draft.


Maybe that's what blogging is all about. Not having to critique every entry..Just write..let the juices flow. I am in foreign territory. It feels strange and awkward.


Ok, I confess, I just did a spell check on awkward on dictionary.com


At least I chose the right word to describe this experience.

I really enjoy your posts, so I was hoping you'd get a'round tuit in here, and blog around a bit! Glad to see you did!


Hee hee, we're a lot alike in how we go about writing...trouble with all that, we sometimes take it too seriously and it starts to feel like too much work! paperwork.gif
