Welcome to my first post:
Even though I’m a writer, I was a resistant blogger.
I remember when I first heard about blogs. I wondered what I could ever write about that was so important that people would want to read my online journal.
Dribble, I thought. I certainly don’t want to read other people’s journals. But of course blogs took on greater diversity and became more than an online fad about one’s personal life.
I accepted blogs.
I still didn’t want to have one.
I had too many other things I preferred to work on: books, poetry, classes, articles, monologues, plays and songs.
Blogs would take time away from all that.
And I don’t write fast.
Okay, I write very fast.
But I’m a rewriter.
I can easily rewrite one small piece forty times or more.
But finally, I thought, okay, maybe I have something to say.
Maybe I can blog.
Then I had to get past the word.
Blog – An ugly word.
I like frog better.
And I could assign acronyms.
FROG: Freeing or Feeling Really Outrageous & Giddy.
Or how about SWIM.
SWIM: Spiritual Writings Inspiration & Meditations.
WOG: Women of Genius or Wonders of Greatness
(And that’s all of us!)
Or WOG: Witty words of Gold
Okay, you get the picture.
I wanted to call my blog something else.
Finally, it was to be simply called “Journal.”
Friends urged me – Use Blog.
So, here we are.
I recently updated my website – welcome – and there are things I would love to share with you.
Creativity & Journaling Tidbits
Health & Well-Being Treats
Morsels of The Outrageous: Stories, Humor, Poetry & Song
World & Social Commentary Sound bites
