Blogger Volume II

It has been a year since I started blogging. The whole experience has been a wonderful for me.

Never would I have thought I could or would write some 427 posts about my life and thoughts, and publish it all for the world to see…..and someone would read it.

I guess us bloggers are exhibitionists of sorts, needing attention and admiration of others? Or maybe we are so narcissistic that we can’t see the obvious? Perhaps we have just fallen into the great abyss of connectivity and want to be a part of it all.

I’ve been outright busted once the past year, and I have had a few complaints about some of my opinions and subject matter.

I used to write regularly about my annoying neighbor until she stumbled upon my blog found my words hurtful. I never responded to her publicly, but I stopped writing about them. It was not like we were going to salvage some great relationship. So I just let the weekly salvos about them die down. It was easy to write about them. Everything I said was true. But looking at my words from their point of view, even though they were true, were probably mean spirited at best. Gosh I miss writing about them.

I find my writing to be therapeutic at least for me. Some days the multiple postings flow with ease. Other posts are written but they are rejected by the “Reggie editor” and are never published. Rarely do I find writing drudgery.

The friends and relationships I’ve formed online have been the real prize. I think about each of you daily and look forward to reading about your life and thoughts.

So I’ll turn the page and begin another year. Blog on, blog on.

Awesome post! I'm glad that you've had so much fun posting about things that go on in your life. I love reading about you and Gigi and the dogs everyday - in fact, your blog is the first one I check every morning.
And those days when you end up with 2 or 3 posts? Bleah, I'm jealous!
I find your writing hilarious, sometimes so much so that I don't even know what to write as a comment - there's just nothing to do but laugh.
I'm so glad that you decided to look for other Gemini's in blogland, otherwise you and I may never have met.
Blog on!

Thank you.

I'm glad too that I looked for a Gemini. I stopped once I found you and your circle of bloggers.

Blog on!
