why I started blogging

I started because a good friend (www.solidgoldcreativity) talked about her blog being her commitment to writing,to find like-minded people. I wanted somewhere to write and muse and  understand my involvement with wild bush fire when friends could not listen  anymore. I hoped I would get the writing commitment and in the first few weeks rush of adrenaline I did find words jumping off my finger tips . Then it became a struggle all the mean invisible editors proclaimed it was uninteresting,poor writing,and no one would read it.  The last bit is not true.   A few,  checking the stats (don’t you love doing that !), 29 in the highest day.   So out there clicks are happening. I want to say leave a comment but I realise that I read so many other blogs and don’t comment.  So the commitment is to write once a week and click and say something on every person’s blog I read at the moment I read it !

  1. Hi Neri. Thanks for the mention. Love the phrase “words jumping off my finger tips”! Also like the idea of commenting on other peoople’s blogs “at the moment I read it”. I’m going to adopt that commitment too.

    blog on — write on; give lip service to all those inner critics; visit often, comment often; we are all in this together and I like the idea that someone on the other side of the world reads these words
