Hey you - out there?
As of this morning I have been writing this Blog for a month. Now if you have never written a Blog, it is something akin to singing in a public shower. You never know who is listening or what they think. Some readers may be terribly impressed and come back for more. Some may be highly insulted and run away. Some may just stay for the fun of it (as in I am making a fool of myself and they want to see the train wreck.)
Now, friends of mine have politely commented on my stories (and I greatly appreciate the recognition - after all you would not have even known about the Blog had it not been for my shameless self promotion - you know those emails I sent asking you to look at it.) Of course there is always analytical software that tracks numbers of visits, unique visits, length of time on pages. . . heck, I even know what browser folks use. But I don't really know who reads this and who cares.
The bottom line is, no matter what, I will continue writing (singing to myself) because I enjoy it and I get a chuckle out of reliving all these insane moments of my life - and YES they are all true. I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried. I now carry a small journal with me at all times to jot down thoughts I have. Something will bring to mind another funny thing in my past and I will make a quick note so later on I can expound upon it. I have a regular cast of characters to draw upon. And there are more, I just haven't gotten there yet.
Thank you for taking the time to read my posts. Even though, I am never sure someone will read the Blog, I have faith. You know "If you build it, they will come" type faith. And, my Darling Husband hasn't left me yet. (Although I don't think he reads it.) I have had a few comments - you know at the bottom of each post where it says "Comment" and you can click on it. I only ask a few things of you if you are reading it, I hope you enjoy it, take no offense (because none is ever intended), and please, take a moment to share your thoughts with a comment or two. Even if I cannot carry a tune, just let me know you hear the words to the song.
PS This is not my daily post. If you have not already read it, another entry was posted earlier this morning and follows this one.
