Blog Envy

There are a few blogs I read regularly and over the months or years I have always asked myself, "Why don't YOU make a blog, too?" The answer comes down to "I just don't have the energy" and "I don't know what to write about."

I've written a lot in my Live Journal (I've been on that site somehow or another since 2000), I've written in actual paper journals, I've written articles and even had some published. I have been working on a couple of novels for a while now and completed one some years ago. It's not like I don't like to write, it's that I just feel so awkward when speaking to (what I hope is) an audience. 

The idea that no one is reading your blog is pretty sad, but at the same time I feel like I better say something snappy right now or no one ever WILL read my blog. I have to be entertaining, but genuine. How do I do that? 

I thought about the design: it should pop, it should say "me", it should be this and that, and I looked up tons of blog themes and styles and templates and dressings and I just couldn't find anything that really looked right so I ended up with this. This sort of green, boring looking blog that no one will stick around and read. I just know it. I'm a failure at blogging and this is only my second post.

Well dear reader (if I'm not just talking to myself), stick it out with me a little, won't you? Let me grow and evolve and become better and give me some pointers if you like (as long as they don't include how to make my "manhood" grow larger or to win a ton at Texas Hold'em (what IS that, anyway?). My "manhood" is non-existent since I am a Lady [sic], and I don't want to win money at whatever Texas Hold'em is. And I absolutely don't want any escorts or to get a cheap diploma or to watch live stream sports. I hate sports almost as much as I hate cheap diplomas and escorts. Wait no, I hate sports even MORE than both of those combined. So don't spam me, mmkay?

I've read some pretty amazing blogs and I have often thought, "I could do that. I think those things...all I have to do is write them down!" So yeah, blog envy here for those who took the time to actually convert their thoughts to words. And the theme of my blog has made its first appearance in an actual post (yayness!).

That's all I really wanted to say for now.
