When we started this blog, I thought it would be easy, like journaling. Well, I have come to a different conclusion---this is harder than I thought. I have a journal that I write in almost daily. It is fun and easy to do. I think that it is because I can write whatever I want and not feel judged. They are my thoughts and I write like I "think" and talk. I don't worry about people reading my journal and thinking that I am using improper grammar or that I used a word out of context. I have read nasty comments on other folks blogs where people feel the need to correct the blogger's grammar, call them names, tell them they shouldn't be a blogger, etc. OK, I may think that it was wrong wording/spelling but I would NEVER, EVER post that in a comment. I feel that is rude, plain rude! If you don't like their grammar....DON'T READ IT!! No one is making you click on their blog.
OK, I will step down off my soapbox....Back to my original thought.
I really did think this would be easier. I didn't have any great ideas of writing a blog for money or to get a huge reader base....hey, that would be nice but not the reason behind it. I just like to write and thought that I would give this a try. I have posts in my mind and when I go to type them out they change somehow. They don't sound like they do inside my head. I have music and drumrolls and bells ringing in my head. They add dramatic flare to my thoughts. I always seem to have a party going on up there and that doesn't come through in blogging.
I realize that am not going to take professional perfect pictures like some of the ones on popular blogs. I gave up that pipe dream long ago. I take pictures that I like without all the filters and backdrops. I have zero interest in that. I leave that up to photographers who make a living snapping awesome pictures. I will stick to my little camera and take a chance of getting a cute picture that will make me happy. You can see by the pictures that I have posted that they are simple, easy shots focusing on the intended object and by all means, not perfect, but then again, neither am I. <-- How about that sentence? HaHa!
So anyhow, I thought blogging would be easier. I am going to keep trying and will see how this goes. Flaws and all!
