Blogging 101

A blog is a living, breathing thing.  I believe this.  Some blog for a living, some blog for friends and family, and others blog for their own outlet.

I like to say that I don't care how many comments I get, or how many folks read this drivel.  I'd be lying, though, if I did say that.  I *do* care about who reads.  I *do* care who comments.  I'm the worst lurker out there, during the week, but I wish I could comment more.  Ask Traci, Sonya, Russ, or any other blogger who has met me:  I will ask 1,000,000 questions and monopolize the conversation.

What's the point?  I had one when I started this post.  Hmmm.

Oh yeah, what kind of blog do you like?  Is this nonsense stupid enough that I ought to give it up?  Is the "braille room number" thing used up?  Sick of my car issues?  

If all of that is old, what DO you want to see here?  

I'm blogging for work now, which is very structured and very censored (not in a bad way, it's just how it must be) and it makes me wonder about the personal blog.

I have some great pics from my commute, but they seem lame, now.  I have some sunrise pics, but that seems "so last week."  

Input appreciated.  I'm not saying that I'll go away.  I'm just saying that I can drive this blog in a better direction, if I'm headed for a cliff right now.  I don't wanna go Thelma and Louise on you.

I like your car issues, but I like it more when you talk about food. LOL

Donna said...

I blog like most folks twitter... every time something occurs to me. Most of it is lame.

I like your blog, sunsets, car issues and all. I am an armchair traveler when I can't travel for real so I even like your motel shots! I love to read and blogs are like a modern age soap opera. Keep doing what you are doing.

Work, family, cars, pets, daily life. That's what keeps me coming back. Every once in a while I get like this. I do a little something different and then I just go back to what I'm used to.

#1 You have a good sense of humor.
#2 I like your travels (You couldn't get me on a plane)
#3 You are the same age as me daughter.
#4 She works hard like you to keep their head above water.
#5 Anybody that lives under a water tower has got to be interesting.

It's your blog - give us what you got. I find myself restricted when I try to write specifically about this or that. Just let it fly.

I also like stories about poop.

Don't change a thing. I agree with the above comments. I have gotten to know you and your family and you feel like friends. :-)
