When I first began blogging last summer it was strictly for fun; a way to get out all my political and residue 9/11 fears and rants.
It wasn’t something that I did every day, and half my posts remain in draft form, unposted.
Something happened several weeks ago. I thought about the title that I had rather flippantly named the blog. It truly describes what I’m trying to do.
I read old posts and newer ones and saw how much my writing and I have changed in less than six months. I liked it, and decided to test it on Blog Explosion until the new year. The results, so far, have encouraged me to put my soul into it.
I’ve never believed that life comes with a safety net or if it does, that it should be used. I like challenges; I like hanging on the edge of the cliff changing positions to suit my mood and to stay alive but keeping things in the almost-danger zone.
The thing is I don’t know where my blog belongs. When it’s redesigned, I’m going to have categories so that people can read what they want and skip the rest.
I don’t want to have many blogs to express the many facets of my mind and my life.
One blog, for one person with many interests and moods. That could be a motto, I guess.
As I’m courting my destiny, and chasing my dreams, I feel calmer and more secure than I ever have. It’s a great feeling.
But I’ve never been a niche person, and don’t think I fit into any known category.
I’m not even really sure how this blogging thing works. I think I understand linking, and will do it when I have my new polished blog.
I don’t really understand credits or what sites to put my blog on or anything like that.
As I surf blogs and read them I become more and more amazed by the talent that’s out there. Blogging’s a true democracy/meritocracy; it’s going to change publishing. I know that.
But where does my blog (and I) belong? Any suggestions will be more than appreciated.
