My husband tells the story of some professors, including himself, sitting around at lunch one day sharing theories of why birds sing in the morning. Finally, one of the Ph.D.s piped up and said,
“Maybe they just like to sing.”
And that’s probably my first reason to continue this site. Maybe not many will read it (there are a plethora of options, the “cloud” and all that), but, thanks to Mom and Dad, I’ll have a few.
Forming relationships on different levels is part of the blogging experience as well. I’ve already met some r-e-a-l-l-y terrific people, like a network of encouragers whom I may never meet in person this side of eternity.
Then there’s that something about writing that brings out the reality in us; somehow it’s not quite so scary to be authentically me looking into a computer screen instead of face-to-face. And in a culture that is plastic and glossy, that’s a definite plus, even if it’s a little less courageous.
And I’m not ashamed to say it, I love writing, so I wouldn’t mind if it catches on with some publishing guru beyond Indie.
So I will complete this first assignment with the requisite set of goals, some of which are plagiarized from my Blogging 201 instructors:
- Comment on two blogs that I already follow and one new blog 3-4 times each week.
- Invite three guest posts during this first semester (I work at a school so I think in terms of “terms”).
- Reblog three posts from blogs I follow first semester also.
Now, perhaps if some of my Bloggin’ 201 co-bloggers could help hold my feet to the fire….
