It was probably a couple of years ago that my sister first suggested that I start writing a blog.
I figured that I didn't have anything to blog about....my life wasn't interesting, I wasn't a celebrity. I didn't travel, or make up fancy recipes and I was a point and click photographer. I didn't take part in extreme or even unextreme sports. I didn't have a new baby, or any plans to have one. I wasn't a writer, though I had always enjoyed writing.
What could I possibly have to say that would be worth reading?
So I thought about it briefly and then did nothing.
Then, back in August, she sent me a link to a blog. I clicked, and I was inspired, just like that. Suddenly I realised that you don't need to be leading an extraordinary life in order to blog about it. I read the current post, then clicked older post, again and again and again. I was laughing, I was nodding, I was being entertained, I laughed some more and I loved it.
I experienced a little epiphany, I don't have to be saving the world (though you can if you like), I don't need to be educating anybody (though that's a great idea too), I don't have to be reaching seemingly unattainable goals...I can just write what I want to...and that's okay.
So that very day I started writing my little blog...little doesn't really describe it...it's minuscule. It's the place where I can record what I've done...or what I haven't done. I can have a little rant, release a bit of stress, tell a story or share my feelings....and it's my blog so it's all okay.
My page views may be small and my followers even smaller....but that's okay too.
Though please, please feel free to follow me......you will be most welcome :)
P.S. The source of my inspiration was the fantastically funny, irrepressible, irreverent and totally fabulous Mrs Woog @ WOOGSWORLD........love it!
