What, BLOG???

March 16, 2014

As I sit down to write my very first post, I have to ask: Why blog?  

 

I imagine that bloggers have various reasons:  they believe that others want to read about their pregnancy, their pet, their personal lives; they have information to share such as how to change the oil in a car or what movie to watch.  Do people blog out of vanity or out of a need to reach out to others?  Probably both, depending on your celebrity status.  

 

My reason is simple; I need to write.  

 

Next question:  Do I need a subject?  Do I need to stick with one topic:  the books I read, the stuff I write, the places I visit, the recipes I try, my day to day life? 

 

Nope. Ugh. The very idea of having to stick to one subject terrifies me.  

 

Will I ever write about any of those given topics?  Probably.  The point is just to put my fingers to the keyboard and write.

 

Despite the public nature of a blog by its very definition, I am writing more for myself as an exercise than I am for any audience, real or imagined...at the beginning, anyway.

 

 If, by chance, you happen to read these words and actually enjoy them or want to follow me, all the better!
