blog yourself

I’m one of those people who is forever beating themselves up about one thing or another, and my latest is this deep regret I have over not having started or stuck out this blogging thing from way back in the day when I started years and years ago. It just seems such a shame because I actually adore it and it would have been so cool to have it to look back through. That’s why I’m always encouraging everyone to blog. Because I think it’s an awesome medium for self-expression and self-publishing and it’s an opportunity to let the world know what you stand for, to tell your own story. It’s a beautiful thing and I am not squandering the chance anymore. I’ve been blogging fairly consistently for a few years now and although I’ve had months long gaps, I’ve kept coming back to it. And that’s really the big part for me, that I keep coming back and I keep posting.

I love technology so I am always signing up for the latest and greatest app and site, I love trying them out and how some things work and others don’t. Over the years I’ve had quite a few different blogs and I’m so glad that I’ve been able to merge most of them here. I still have a few more to integrate and I’ll get to it as soon as I can.

Then of course, I have images and stories I’ve stored on my computer that I’m indecisive about sharing. Sometimes I just want to let everything hang out. Other times, I’m really, REALLY worried about what people will say or think. Sheesh. Funny how that works, huh? One thing I keep leaning towards is sometimes just posting things where they ought to go. So, even though it is September 2013 (I mean, really??!! What the??? It was Jan 1st just a min ago, I swear it!!), I may post pictures on the date they were taken and write the story in first person from back then. We’ll see. It makes sense to me but of course it may make it more complicated for any current readers of this here blog to keep up with. I think if you sign up to get an email when I post to the blog, you’ll get a notice regardless of the post date. Let’s find out, shall we? Let me know, okay? And I’ll let you know. 😀

What’s your deal? Why do you blog? Do you find it tough or easy to stick to it? How do you decide what to blog about or not blog about? Preach.
