I discovered blogging a little over a year ago,without knowing exactly what it was.  Someone told me it was an online diary. I wondered who in the world would want to read a daily diary of someone they didn’t know? And then I discovered that people use blogs to sound off on many subjects; sometimes personal, sometimes political, sometimes controversial. It seems the subject can be whatever you would like to expound on. Ranting is fine as long as you keep it clean.

Since I’ve written articles on and dabbled in poetry for years, this seemed like something I’d like to do. Like everyone else who works, time on the computer is sometimes sporadic and infrequent. Subsequently, my blogs might come in 2’s or 3’s once a month or so, whenever the muse strikes me.

A friend I hadn’t seen in a while came in today to check on me, my family, and my boss who lost her father-in-law last week. Apparently, this friend had read my blog, and wanted an update on things. I said, “Oh my gosh! You actually read my blog?” That was really cool. It’s not as if I expect to write for posterity, but it was nice to discover at least one of my friends reads it now and then to see what’s new.

    It’s nice that you still keep up with this. I started blogging over a year ago and never had anyone read it. So I stopped. I don’t know why I cared. It can be for you only, like a type of journal. It’s nice to get comments, but even if no one does, you still get your thoughts and feelings out. So maybe I should start mine back up… if I can remember where it is.
