Why do I have to devote half my time to getting my blog to be seen when I began a blog as a means of getting out all the things running through my head that would never be published?
I began blogging to rant and not to edit or care about grammar, punctuation, style or the like. I did mean to try out new styles, but blogging seems to take on a life of its own.
I never thought of myself as a competitive person but like most people who think of themselves as writers, I want to be read. But my blogging is not like my other writing in style or substance so why do I care>
I’m not a pretty writer. I don’t do flowery well; I don’t do faux sophisticated at all. All I have is a love of words and more thoughts than could possibly be good for me and a need to get them out as I don’t want to talk everyone heads off. I’m not even particularly clever though I can pass for witty.
I’m confused but the disc jockey just said everybody is confused today so I guess that I’m in the majority. I’ve never been in the majority so that couldn’t have been true.
I really just want to be Dorothy Parker without the alcohol, but with the Round Table and the men. Is that too much to ask for?
