blog reflections


I've been reading lots of blogs of late. They run the gamut from serious to insane, profound, downright silly, funny, sad, uplifting, sexy, XXX rated, and boring.

I suppose I would describe mine as somewhere to the right of the middle of the road neutral. I just write a little ditty here and there of whatever touches my heart or funny bone that day. I write it for me, not for an audience. Its fun to compile bits and pieces of what's on my mind, then go back and read it all at a later date. Makes me smile, sometimes cry.

At first, I was very reluctant to start a blog. But my "blog idol", Boondoggled convinced me that it would be fun and addictive. I saw how much she was enjoying doing it so I said, what the heck. Now I look forward to posting a thought here and there. I've formed new friendships with people I'd never get to meet otherwise. Some of us have lots in common and sometimes it's just fun to go back and forth with opinions anonymously. So, fellow bloggers, keep those cards and letters coming......I'm enjoying them!!!!!

(P.S. I've been seeing this HNT thing going on (Half Naked Thursday)......and altho I will not publish a pic of me half naked, (I'm working anyway)....I wish I was all naked today!!!! So hot here again. So to those of you who are lucky enough to be half or whole naked.....nice!!!!)

Peace!

*lol* I work in a really conservative area, with a great deal of hasidics... I would love to be half naked! Than maybe they would stop being so damn obvious when they try to stare at my chest! When there not supposed to even be looking at me. Being the shiksa that I am! *LOL*

I feel the same way about blogging. It's about how I am feeling at that moment with a bit of restraint. :)

Great post. Blogging is great. I've only been blogging for a month now and it consumes me. I am so addicted to blogging I even had to blog about being addicted to blogging. I've decided to start a rehabilitation program for us blogaholics ;-)

That's too funnny michael, but not that far fetched......I mean this is all fairly new....so I'd give it some time.....and pretty soon we'll be reading about all the movie stars and authors attending a 90 day blog rehab.....after getting caught writing evil blogs...

I agree Odat. Blogging will eventually ruin the novel as we know it. Blogging will further reduce our already short attention spans and writers will only be capable of a few paragraphs a day.

They will become so thirsty for immediate feedback that they will wait to see reader's comments before writing and posting more.

To write a book like War and Peace now would take like 40 years in "blog time."
