I think blogging is one of the coolest things ever.
You can share your successes, your woes, your finds, your loves, your adventures…need I go on? You can share anything. And there are going to be people out there who are interested. It’s mind blowing really. You can find someone else who has a similar interest or maybe just someone who makes you laugh. Sometimes I enjoy reading someone’s rants that are just damn witty and holy-shit-did-she-just-say-that? Usually followed by I wish I was that funny.
My husband told me yesterday that I was pretty funny. He said I’ve been getting funnier over the years. That surprised me because I’ve never thought of myself as funny. Especially when my husband makes me laugh regularly. Now that guy is funny. Although I am also easily entertained. For example; if Kimbo (my husband and no it’s not that Kimbo but the real one that is married to me) wants to make me laugh, all he has to do sing what the fox says. Fucking hilarious. I know, I’m like a child sometimes.
Back to what I was talking about. I tell the authors in my writers group to blog (that would be the Ink Slingers Guild in case you were wondering). I tell them that 1) they are authors and they can think of crap to write at the drop of a hat, that 2) they’re all talented and interesting, and 3) that blogs are fun. I see a lot of cringing and hear I don’t know what to say.
So again, I say, blogs can be about anything. I blog about shit that is interesting to me and if someone else likes it – then yay! We have an accord. (I love saying that.)
I LOVE to read. So I blog about stuff I’ve read. I also blog about writing/author stuff because I am that and it is interesting to me. Plus I blab about random stuff because we all have randomness.
One of my author friends has travelled all over the damn place. I am really looking forward to reading what she has to say. Looks at watch. Glances at friend. Frowns. Looks at watch again.
Maybe you have done nothing, been nowhere and all you do is knit all day. You probably think that you are the most boring thing since watching worms make their way across the drive way. But no.
Did you know that if you go to Google and search for yarn that there are over 31 million results? That means there are some other people interested in yarn and some posts on knitting would catch some interest. Or maybe your odd hobby of postcard exchanging (see # 5 postcrossing here: http://communities.washingtontimes.com/neighborhood/world-our-backyard/2013/jan/25/11-unusual-and-bizarre-hobbies/) isn’t so boring after all.
Everyone has something interesting to say. Come on, get it written. We want to see what you have to say.
