Puzzled, Confused, Mystified, Confounded


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.
