Flogging the Blog

Taking a minute here to reflect on Bloggerdom. There are so many of us out there; many more of you are reading us. I wonder what there is about it and why?

For myself I have always loved reading diaries— from the genuine (earliest read was probably "Diary of Anne Frank" at age nine) to the fictional (a favorite: "These is My Words"). But I've never been able to write one. Started? Yes. Progressed beyond January 5? No. I keep little "trip diaries" (notes scribbled in half darkness before collapsing each day) because I know my memory of events will fog up. I create amazing grocery lists. But a diary? With thoughts? Such pressure!

While aware that nothing online can be a deep dark secret, I've still shared my thoughts freely and unfettered by editing (not better for it— mind you— just unfettered). And how nice that you are reading this!


  1. I love your blog! I'm so glad you've chosen to share your thoughts with the world. The blog as diary - I guess in a way it is. I enjoyed keeping a diary when I was young, but it usually petered out after a while. So far my blog is going strong, but gosh there are a lot of us. Sometimes it makes me wonder why I continue, but I do.

  2. I really enjoy your blog - I never miss an entry, even if I don't always comment. I kept diaries from when I was 9 years old to when I was in my 20s (and I still have them all!), but nothing again until I started doing my blog 5 years ago. I do enjoy it, but it's not quite the same, writing and knowing that strangers are reading!

  3. I love reading your take on fashion. Blogging amazes me. To think that there are so many people out there taking the time to read, and often to contribute. It's such a great way to share ideas, and I really appreciate reading yours.
