Blogging should be easy, right?

   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!

  1. Yep, the blog posts in my head so often sound way better than the ones that actually make it to my blog.

    Loved this post, hope you keep writing.
