Blog? Really?

Am I the only one who looks at the "new post" button and think something like:

"But if I blog about what's really on my mind - they'll never talk to me again."

or -- "Wow. I'm really feeling dull today?"

Seriously. I've hit a stage of life where I still need the creative outlet of a blog. I really yearn to hear from you... but at the same time, I just look around think to myself: I could keep reposting the same stories over and over again.

I've posted that the middle of a story is the hardest to write. Probably because it's really quite important and really quite boring.

Maybe that's where I am. Middle of the story.

which ... huh ... has inspired me. inspired me to grin.

Because. You see? If I'm in the middle of the story - there's some really good stuff coming my way. Why am I confident that it'll be good?? (And not, say, pirates - as I'm writing about) Because I believe in Happy Endings.

And God loves me...so, the best is yet to come.

I just know it.

I just encouraged myself.
Thanks for listening.

I join you in being amused at you. Though technically not since "amuse" is "to not think" and I am more mused.

So, you are amused at you. I am confused at me.

You write it...i'll read it. Keep posting!

I just snorted because the word verification is: animpl

I can so relate to what you're saying. So many times I think about blogging, but my life seems even more boring when I start writing it down.

I've been a bit down lately with the reality of an "empty nest" looming in the not so distant future. Thank you for the encouraging thought that the best is yet to come.

Hmmm...I'm going to have to think on that one a bit more. :o)

I think I have another blog in my head that writes about all the stuff that I can't really blog about. :)

I'm with ya on the "New Post" phobia - been feeling a bit the same here. Lots going on in my head, not sure it's necessary or relevant to share with the world. . . I'm way behind in writing and reading. I think this happens to me every Spring. I get caught up in my "doing" and projects are flying fast and furious. I'm too tired to think out loud and rehashing the "daily doings" bores even me. . .And I lived it :)

But the "happy ending" perspective is encouraging. I love happy endings!

You always make me smile. I must admit my blog is sometimes greatly lacking a new post for the exact same reasons you mention. My spouse is always saying to just go ahead and let it rip. If they don't come back to read, oh well.
