Sometimes I read too many blogs/tweets/facebook posts in a row that have no apparent cultural or newsworthy value, and I start wondering why why why? are all these people feeling that it's interesting or important for others to know that the writer is standing in line somewhere, or not liking some celebrity's hair, or thinking about the changes in the weather. It makes me worry that I am more self-indulgent in my posts than is savory. I don't want to be a jerk, or to look like the self-involved person that at some level, we all are.
But I want to communicate to those seeking contact and content. I want to remark when there's something to say, to add a voice to the chorus, whether aligned or dissenting. When there might be something to share that could help someone, or save somebody a frustration I experienced, or help light a fire of excitement that spreads wonderfully within someone's life. Maybe I've been too concerned with having a specific point of view -- trying too hard to connect my 'deep thoughts' to creativity or music or writing, whatever. Well, you might be hearing more stories about Daisy (now 2 and a half) or food or getting the clutter out! or the other things that occupy my daily life so much. Hope that's alright with y'all.
I also want to find some models of great blogs with rich, helpful content. Can you guys turn me on to some of your favorites?
What's the right amount to blog? Multiple times a day? Daily? Weekly? Please comment and share with me how often your favorite bloggers post. There are usually rhythms to these things, and I am perfectly happy to learn from those who've found great ones already.
Okay, so that's it for today. I'll wrap it up with my thankful things, starting with a thank you to you!
Today I'm thankful for:
1. The chance to have a good talk with my sister.
2. That Daisy's teeth are feeling better after she knocked them IN the other day -- yikes!
3. Reconnecting with great old friends!
4. Wonderful grandparents. :)
5. Naps during those great midwestern rains.
