Day One.

I've decided to take the plunge and do a blog. And I ask myself:
-Will it get me anywhere?
-Will anyone even care to read it?

If it offers me nothing more than an online journal to vent my thoughts and percolate some ideas, does that make it less or more meaningful?

It's like being in a writing contest. You wonder if anyone will read it, like it, or send you hate mail. But what you take away from the experience is the important part.

Life (blogs, writing) is all about what you learn and how you use that knowledge.


  1. Yay, first comment! :)

    I asked myself all the same questions when I started (still do, actually), but it's true... the experience is the important thing. You'll figure it out as you go along.

    Happy blogging!

  2. Looks like you've got it figured out and every day gets easier. Try to have fun with it. Before you know it you'll be blogging like a pro.

  3. Congratulations on the kickoff! It does get easier as you go, although the questions tend to remain for a while.

  4. Jen, J.M.Strother, and Tony,
    Thank you for your support and various hints, helps, and assistance. Greatly appreciated.
