I know that's more than a little bit corny, but isn't blogging in itself a little bit corny? I mean, what is it about other people's lives that intrigue us so much? Why is being a voyeur on Facebook so much fun? What is so fascinating about PEOPLE magazine's "Star Tracks?", and don't get me started on our obsession with "reality" television.
So here it goes, as inspired by "Julie & Julia", I am challenging myself to 365 days of blogging. Yesterday when I went out on a limb and made my blog public, I wasn't sure anyone would read it. Well, a couple people did and it felt great.
At first, I wondered what in the world would I write about? Then it occurred to me that the blogs I read are interesting to me either because the writer is just like me, experiencing the same things I do, or is the complete opposite of me, and I can have insight into another type of life (much like the PEOPLE magazine obsession). For me, blogging will be an outlet to express these voices in my head, and maybe in the process connect with others by making them laugh, cry, wonder.
If you would like to support me in my quest, I ask you to "follow" me, "comment", or even pass my blog on to others. Who knows, I may even be asking YOU to be a guest writer!
