At the urging of one of my online writing buddies, I am going to try blogging about something every day. I am usually writing something every day anyway — either at some social networking forum, or at work (writing is writing no matter where or about what you are writing), or in my journal. So what’s so hard about putting something on my blog? Right?
Well, here’s the thing about that: I’ve never really felt like I could properly blog every day. When I blog, I feel like it has to be a little more “perfected”, carefully crafted and suitable for an audience, some topic or idea of profound interest to the world. Blogging for me is like submitting a paper to a teacher in school and that blog post will be surveyed by every reader with a more critical eye. So what if I went out on a limb and just posted the detritus of my mind without concern of what anybody thought. Would you guys be okay with that?
As I make my daily posts, I don’t want to be making announcements everyday on FaceBook or the yahoo group of writers I belong about each daily post. Therefore, if you are interested in following what I say, maybe you can subscribe to this blog. (If you have never tried out Google Reader as a way to follow your favorite blogs, I urge you to try it out. It is useful tool for that.)
So with all this being said, thus ends my first daily post.
