blogging, blogs, feelings, friends, miscellaneous, personal column, quarter of a year, random, thoughts, virtual friends, writing
I can’t believe that it has already been three months since I started my blog, 90plus days, a quarter of a year. When I started blogging I really wasn’t aware what I was getting myself into.
I had never read a blog before, let alone followed one, I wasn’t aware of the whole world of blogs that were out there and I really didn’t know that this entire community existed. I had no idea what I was going to write about, I hadn’t a clue about stats and linking up to other blogs, inserting images, awards and leaving comments.
With very little idea of what to do about content, my blog has turned into my own personal column, a sort of diary of my thoughts, feelings and ideas. I never really know what I am going to write about until my fingers start typing and words appear on the screen in front of me. And while I love my little outbursts of posts filled with venting, thanking and thinking I am still amazed at the fact that people actually read, and some even follow, what I have to say.
Now I have to admit that I have become a little bit to addicted to my stats and what colourful nationalities have clicked on my page. I feel a little bit like a collector when I spy a new flag, especially when it is one I have never seen before. I mean who knew that people in Malaysia, Belize, Nepal and even Bahrain were interested in what I have to say?
And who knew that the little orange icon in the corner of my screen letting me know someone has liked or commented on my offerings and sometimes has even decided to follow my blog would make me smile so much . It is odd how the lovely remarks and kind words can lift my spirits and make me feel better about myself even if I don’t know the people who left them. And yes some of you have become virtual friends and I am very grateful for that.
So while I have been a little bit lazy last week and blogging was put on the back-burner I will keep blogging and trying to entertain my readers, old new and the yet to join. As a convert to blogging I hope my blog becomes as fantastic as others already are, blog-astic if you will.
