I’ve been blogging for a little over a decade now. Most of it done on privately and only a few had access to it. Actually because of my blogging, I met a cool dude who would later introduce me to my husband and two best girlfriends.
But blogging openly is a very different sea. Before I stayed in the shallow waters of my own pool. Now I’m trying to make my way in th big wild sea. and it’s a little rocky.
I wish my thoughts flowed more smoothly like other bloggers. However, my mind is a choppy and chaotic sea. I tend to write what I’m thinking (much how I talk) but I try to make it as cohesive as possible. I tend to ramble. I think this is due to my love of Kerouac. It’s my spontaneous prose.
After turning 30, there are things about myself that I know I will never change. I’m not an eloquent speaker, I talk too fast and too much. One thing I did want to change is my lack of blogging. I wanted this blog to really reflect me and my life. I wanted it to reflect my struggles and joys as a writer and also be a reflection of my interests. I think I’m accomplishing this so far. I’m even trying to update more than once a week. oh la la.
I’m funny on the fly. I don’t think about making jokes, they just happen and it’s hard to blog jokes! I say lots of funny, weird, interesting things on twitter but I can’t seem make that happen yet on this blog yet! ONE DAY! I will conquer humor on this blog like the Mongolians conquered much of Asia. I think this is what I will be working on next, injecting more of my oddball/sarcastically optimistic/ dark humor. I am reallly sarcastic. did you taste the sarcasm in that statement? I really wish the internet would find a way to detect sarcasm. Like there could be a pop up window or sound when sarcasm is on the screen.
My main character is sarcastic as well. Sometimes I wonder how much of myself is in my main character of my novel. See there, I go rambling again.
I am looking for cool, funny, weird, blogs to read? What are YOUR favorites? Leave them in the comments!
Oh Wait! I forgot to finish my swimming metaphor! Yes, I am finally starting to swim in this big blog world. There, Now I can go eat spaghetti.
