First Musings on Starting a Blog
Topic: Blog Writing
I've finally started a blog. It will surely contain a lot of nonsense. I often have to write a lot of that before anything of interest comes out. Perhaps I'll think of a way to separate the two. I know, its called editing. But I also like being able to see the thought process, so I may have a tendency to leave the nonsense. And, so now what do I write about? I just wanted to get this thing set up and on the road. I have to write something so I can actually see it. And who knows when I'll be ready to show it to anyone else.

I realized, when I write in my (paper) journal I have no real consideration of whether or not my thoughts will be understood by anyone. I basically write for me to remember things that have happened or the thoughts I've had, and as a maybe trove for someone in the future to come across, maybe learn from, maybe see what another person's journey was. But to publish something for anyone to read one must have some awareness of whether it will be meaningful to the 'audience'. And it just hit me that writing a blog will be quite different than writing a journal in that way. Here I was thinking I'd finally be able to put out there some of the points of views I have on things and it would be as simple as one two three, but NO, one must still have a concern with how things are read, how things come across. Hmm. I'm not sure about this now.
