I started this blog back in October and, overall, I've been enjoying it. I told myself that, if it starts feeling like a job or an obligation, I'll let it go.
I can't really say what motivated me to start this. I really had no idea where to begin. But, with some help from a few online friends and fellow bloggers, I was able to get this up and running.
I told myself that I was doing this for me and if other people happen to find it and enjoy reading it, all the better. But, I admit, I'm getting a little frustrated. When I'm talking with friends and/or family, inevitably someone will mention my blog and/or a particular post, making some comment about it. Hey!! Did you ever notice that there's a place to write comments?? I don't care if the comments are good, bad or indifferent; even just a note to say hi, I stopped by to check out your blog.
Also, I love Feedjit, the service that tracks where people are from who stop by the blog and how they got here. I had to restart my Feedjit last week, for some unknown reason, so my list isn't as long as it was. But, it shows that, somehow, people from various points around the world, have found my blog. I would love to get a comment from those folks also. As I said, I don't care what the comment is (however, no profanity, please). You can disagree with me, tell me I don't know what I'm talking about, or just tell me you love me. Please, don't be shy. I know that shyness has never been an issue for any of my family and friends, so don't start now.
