I've been intrigued for quite some time about the whole blogging phenomenon but haven't had the courage to really dive in and do it. When I try to figure out why that could be, I realize that I fear that I might not have something to say, or that no one will care what I say, or read what I say, or worse yet I'll be criticized for something I say. Yikes!
There is also something about putting my thoughts out there in cyberspace for all the world to see that feels really, really vulnerable. Yup, it is a vulnerable thing to do.
So why do it at all?
Well,... I've believed for most of my life that I was a writer with something to say. I've been told that I write well and that others enjoy what I say when I do take the time to write. I enjoy writing but I also resist it at the same time. When I write I learn things. I learn things about myself that I might not have been aware of before and sometimes I learn things that I really didn't want to know. So it's a blessing and a curse, this writing thing I do.
But sometimes I just might have something to say. Sometimes I might want to put it out there, own it and see what happens. So, for those times I now have a place. If I have something that feels worthwhile to say, I'll say it here in my new blog.
