So we’re all blogging now, are we?

‘_’

That’s me.  That’s pretty much how I’m feeling about this first blog post.  And quite honestly, I’m usually not one to make various over-creative emoticons out of punctuation marks.  However, my good friend Heather is.  I told her I was going to begin a blog where I could flex my writing skills and give people something to reference me with (Thanks, Tantek).  So when I finally signed up for a blog, I realized.. um.. I had to make a first post.

And I have no idea what to write about.  Heather said to introduce myself and, somehow, without following any rhyme or reason (as per usual between us), we started making emoticons on gchat.  One of my personal favorites of hers is <(‘.'<) <( ‘  ‘ )> (>’.’)>

It’s cute.  Hehe.  But still, all I could come up with was  ‘_’  …which I think is rather appropriate anyhow.

So, here I am.  Fledgling writer that I am, I’m thinking that this blog will eventually form its own personality and, most likely, take off without me.  I believe that words control us more than we control them.  But, with a little coaxing, maybe we can strike a deal.  Words, if you’ll make me sound good, I’ll put in a good word for you too.  No pun intended.

  1. When I first started blogging, I aimed to make the entries short, cryptic distillates of whatever was on my mind that day.

    I was aiming to be general so my audience could share in my emotion. But I wanted a fairly powerful emotion, and that came from having the right thought.

    I don’t know if that’ll help or not – I guess I’m saying: don’t stop blogging, and short can be really good.
