Goodbye Summer, Hello Blog-time

It never ceases to amaze me how much time I spend on the computer. I even eschew sleep for internet-time. Obviously, I'm a full blown addict and I find it as hypnotic as any drug could possibly be, although it's probably more akin to gambling. Is it harmless? If I am honest, I will have to confess it is not. My family has complained from time to time, my health is not as good as it could be.

Does this blog make me a pusher??

I sure hope not. I need to add more quality content in order to feel it offers something more than just mindless drivel. I will work on that.

Not as easy as it looks

Okay, I'll admit it. My goal was to post every day. Maybe even several times a day. After all, the more content, the more interest, the more likely to attract readers, advertisers, etc.

It's not that I don't have things to say. (It's never that I'm at a loss for words.) Rather, I think I'm feeling a little self-conscious, talking to myself. I haven't actually TOLD anybody about this blog yet, it's true, but somehow I just wish someone would stumble upon it and give me a brief "atta-girl." Or a long, glowing, gushing, "What a great title, idea, face..." I'm not picky about compliments.

And so I'll add more content, more laughs, tears, Olympic moments, in hopes that this will get more comfortable for "all" of us. Don't burst my bubble - I know what lurks out there!

I Blog, Therefore I Am

Today is the first day of the rest of your blogging life. Face it, you're a nobody without a blog. An online loser. Sad but true.
"But I don't need a blog. What the heck would I say? And why would anybody want read it anyway?"
Too bad. Doesn't matter. You need one, plain and simple. Get over it. I did, and now I'm finally a Somebody. What a relief.

This will become THE place where we can share all my words of wisdom, favorite sites, and other blogs (especially freebie forums). I postponed the inevitable as long as possible and now my job is to convince you that blogging for fun and profit really is in your best interest.

Would I lie?
