Life keeps getting in the way

Any St Catharines Ont followers?

This is the found cat. I’m deathly allergic! I want to find her home so the owners can be happy and she wont have to go to the pound 😦

Though I think my dog will miss her 🙂

Oh Blogging, is this the life for me?

key-1814642_1920As I dove into a writing career, I thought long and hard about the blog.

Do I want to do it?

Why would I do it?

What do I have to blog about?

 

There are many pros and cons to a weekly blog. Content is the #1 con – how do you maintain exciting material over and over in a “writer’s life” style blog?

Yet on the flip side, the #1 pro to a blog, is finding other like-minded people to gather with. As a novel writer, I may publish a book, twice a year (if I’m lucky).

You can’t maintain fans/readers if you only show your face like Wiarton Willy, or for the American fans, Punxsutawney Phil.groundhog-day-driving

 

So, I stopped thinking about it and just went ahead and began. I figured, “meh, I’ll sort it out as I go.

criticism-3083100_1920                                                    One of the side effects of blogging that I had never thought would happen to me, is the seeking validation. I am not a “look-at-me” type of person. I’d much rather hide in my own home and not even talk to people than be on stage screaming for attention. And then I started blogging. People pop in and like, they follow, they comment, and you’ll begin to think, “hey maybe I can do this.” Some weeks blogs are better than others. One week will get tons of likes and shares, and the next, you could hear a pin drop in the silence. That’s when you start second guessing everything in life.

The point of this – nothing – I needed to blog Sat, and I did. Give it a go too, you never know, you just might like it.
