With intent to blog on my grand adventure (starting September 19th) I feel I should start actually writing things now so that I am well in the habit once I go down-under. Therefore...I will start weekly postings! They will probably be mostly ramblings about things and stuff, but I'm good at that and I think the things I write are funny a lot of the time so maybe they'll make you laugh too.
The whole blog concept kind of blows my mind when I think about it - I mean who really reads random stuff other people write? well I do...a lot...I think I follow close to 10 blogs and most of them are written by people I have never met. I think one of my issues in the past is that I never know if anyone is reading so there is very little motivation to write things that I don't really need to write if no one is going to read them...so if you are reading and think something is funny or you agree or something leave a comment!! or don't and tell me about it later or something...or there's no one reading and I'm just sending my thoughts and opinions out into the blogosphere to take up space and be annoying :P and that is precisely the part of blogging that terrifies me...I have no idea who is reading my ramblings so I feel like I need to watch what I say in a different way. I don't have that many boundaries about what to say (or not to say) because I feel pretty centered in who I am and who I want to be and if someone doesn't like that that's ok with me because I like me and I'm the one I have to live with for the rest of my life. I also communicate differently with different people and not knowing my audience makes it hard for me to...talk/write like I want so that I know the results...that doesn't make sense, well...it does in my head :P
I've been asking question of the day on Facebook because I think it's fun to ask random questions and see who answers them and I am always surprised by at least one answer, either because it's someone I haven't talked to in a while or because it's not something I expect people to answer that question with, if I really analyzed that I would probably decide that I have more friends than I know and that I should just write whatever I want because someone will read it and like it and someone else will find it totally strange.
One of my pet peeves about blogs are posts that are too long and don't really say anything, short ones that say nothing are ok. This one is too long. I'm sorry.
Have a lovely week!
