Naturally, one wouldn’t lay out all of their personal information on their blog. Once and awhile it seems appropriate to share life’s happenings tactfully, but I know in large measure, I myself leave the pessimism to my personal journal. Most of the time, it’s just not necessary or even productive to read my rants and frustration about particular circumstances, or to read about the days when everything in life is distorted by shades of blue.
I do still feel however, that I’m completely real in my blogs. Most of the time, blogs are upbeat and fun, so it’s a pretty good bet that they are written in a good mood. I don’t really know exactly what people want to read, and aren’t we all taught in any good writing class to write to our audience? Since the only audience I’m 100% sure of is me, then I guess I write for me, or at least I write about things that are interesting to me however random or silly they may truly be.
I don’t know that I have a point. Just keep blogging, because I enjoy reading blogs. Whether it’s personal, anecdotal, pictorial, or simply entertaining, keep ‘em coming. And if perchance you have a blog that I am not aware of, please do inform me and I’d be happy to post a link and visit your blog too.
And also, since I know that pictures make for a more enjoyable blog experience. Here are some memories.
A random montage of memories from 2004-2007 in chronological order...and some cute lion cubs.
