Blogophenia

Almost two years ago I decided to take a risk. I wasn't exactly sure what I was getting myself into; and to be honest, I was a bit scared of making myself look (even more) goofy than I do already.

But I went for it anyway.

So Many Blogs
At first the concept of getting into blogging seemed a bit overwhelming. Not only would I be putting myself out there (that's making a huge assumption that anyone would actually be reading anything I wrote - you get the point); but there are so many great blogs on so many topics that I was quite sure I would simply be lost in the crowd.

But I went for it anyway.

So Little Time
Next hurdle...finding the time to write. This part has actually turned out to be the easiest of all the challenges...here's why:

"Once you realize how powerful blogging can be just for you and no one else, you make the time to write. Ideas pop into your head at all times of the day and night, and you find yourself keeping track of every one because it might just turn into a post."

So even as I continued to be concerned about time constraints I captured every idea for future use (thank you iPhone notes app.)

I just kept going for it.

How About You
Sometimes I stir the pot, add to an ongoing dialogue, raise a little hell,  or spark a reaction in others. But mostly I blog for me. There's room for you too. Are you ready to go for it?

I'd love to hear from you.

No Excuses.

  2. Jay,

    I agree with you that I blog as much for myself as for my readers. I appreciate your honesty and support!
