But, what if no one reads it?

Honest truth? <—–what you will always get from me, by the way.  I’ve resisted blogging for a very long time, mainly because of that question.  I mean, why should I blog???!!!   The truth is, I could have the exact same conversations in my head and, between the vast abyss of the internet, the TLDR (too long, didn’t read) nature of our society and the phenomenally craptastic reach of Facebook, I would reach exactly the same number of people:  myself.  But, then again, what if someone does read it?  And, what if that one someone nods their head in agreement because they, too, feel the same way I do about something (anything!)?  Well, then we’ll be buddies, that one someone and I.  And, that one someone and I will nod in agreement together over a variety of topics and then (!!!), I’m not having a conversation with just myself any longer.  So, maybe you’re that someone and we’ll nod in agreement together from time to time?  In that case, Hi Friend!  Thanks for stopping by!

I don’t know how often I’ll blog.  Once a week seems like a long-shot, considering the chaos of my life (wife, mom, all-around-semi-adequate-superhero, solving household problems, one blown-out-of-proportion crisis at a time).  Once a month seems attainable, but also, because of said chaotic life, likely something I’ll forget to do.  So, I think we’re probably going to go with a “when the mood strikes” kind of a schedule.  Hopefully, I’ll remember to write the blogs down instead of just having the conversation in my head and you, new friend, won’t forget about me in the interim.

It’s true, the only person who reads this might be myself (as I’m writing it, and then 10,000 times after I publish it, because I’m obsessive like that).  But, even if I’m that tree in the forest with no one around to hear it fall, at least *I’ll* know I made a noise, albeit a tiny one.  So, here’s to a new adventure in blogging.

PS.  More honest truth.  I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing when it comes to WordPress.  Yet!

  1. I agree!! And You have inspired me to blog for the same reasons. I figured who the heck is going to read it! But it’s better to blog than just keeping it all in my head! 😚 very well written lady!
