I’m perplexed. I am writing my first blog entry for a class I am taking at LVS called Basic Blogging, or is it Blogging Basics; could be neither. The name might be Writing 101, but who cares; it is essentially an exercise in writing, which is not my strong point. I much prefer talking. I love the spontaneity of a chat. No problems worrying about how to start with a chat. Hi works almost every time. Yes, I’m perplexed. How do you start writing a blog? Should I express my feelings of concern as I am doing now, or…or what.
Or what; that is a big subject. Think Skippy, what is this blog about anyway? What did you decide for a subject; who is your target audience; what is your authority?
I don’t care. I know we discussed those things, and I posted my intent, but those were just words. What I am feeling now is complete fear. Fear of failure; fear of inadequacy, fear of looking foolish are all popping into my mind. Plus, I still don’t know how to start this darn blog.
Wait. What is this I see? Three paragraphs proceeding this one. Oh my, I have started blogging! Easy as pie! I’m a natural. No sweat. Just sit down and begin writing. This is so cool.
Hold on Skippy. What about the subject of your blog? Remember, I think you were going to discuss Painter.
Leave me alone. I’m on a roll; words are flying from my fingers. I feel like I am having a chat. Ha, I guess I am having a chat with you. Who are you anyway?
Does that matter? Let me ask you a question. How are you going to end this post?
End this post? I don’t know; it would be easy if I were having a chat. I would just say goodbye and walk along.
Oh gosh, I’m perplexed. I am writing my first blog entry for a class I am taking at LVS called Basic Blogging, or is it Blogging Basics; could be neither, and I don’t know how to end the post.
