So…why am I here?

Blog.  It took me a while to even understand what that meant.  Then it just annoyed me.  Another candidate for inclusion in Webster’s that signaled a change that scared me.  Don’t even get me started on Vlog’s and RSS.  Realizing I’m way late to the soiree, here’s my excuse:   I need to write.  Bad.  I wrote a lot decades ago in my teens and early 20’s but the ache has been growing.  I’m one of those countless folks who “has a book in them” but realizes that won’t happen until I stretch my legs a little and actually do some writing.  Yeah, I know I could keep a journal and keep it to myself, but the Blog “thing” finally became attractive to me.  It offers the excitement (scarce as it may be) of being “discovered”…of having someone important see what you wrote and transporting you into fantasyland…publishing-wise or career-wise.  I’m not arrogant enough to admit that’s not attractive but I’m jaded enough to know it’s unlikely.  What does excite me is feedback… the exhibitionist quality of hanging your guts out to the world and seeing what bounces back.  So, yeah…that and I NEED to put thoughts to print.  I can’t describe it, but if you have it you know.  So I’m committing to a blog a day for a while to hone my craft.  Whether that occurs of not, I have no idea but I do know I will feel better.  So thanks for reading, thanks for understanding, and please feel free to comment on anything I write…positive or negative it’s all good.  Thanks.

    I love to write too, it has always been an outlet for me. I especially enjoy writing poetry, but usually it’s for my eyes only. I’m not as brave as you I guess having everybody read my deepest thoughts. Good for you!!! Thank you for sharing, I enjoyed it. 🙂 I’m still following you, that has to creep you out at least a little bit 😉
