To Blog or Not to Blog

Well, as anyone reading this can tell, I'm not much of a blogger, yet. However, my dear Jennifer recently wrote me and basically ordered me to post a blog, so not to be one to go against my sweetheart, I'm blogging.

This is an odd thing for me. My life is an open book. If you meet me on the street, strike up a conversation and ask me the most intimate of questions, I'll answer truthfully. However, it's odd to be writing about myself and my thoughts on a computer screen that is posted to a web site that anyone could read. I ask myself; just what makes me think that I have anything to say that anyone would want to read? And then (when I have time to kill, which isn't often) I read some random blog and realize that there are a whole lot of people out there posting a lot of crap that a lot of other people read. To me that's totally amazing. That's not to say I haven't read brilliant blogs, I have. It still amazes me.

So, I guess, if I'm going to do this, I don't always have to be scintillating and fascinating and titillating and . . . (put in your other favorite –ating word here)

So, here's my pledge to Jennifer (and anyone else who cares) I promise to blog at least three times a week. That's all I can promise.

This post doesn't count. My week starts on Sunday.

For today, thaaaaaaaats all folks (in the words of my favorite pig...I'll tell you about my pig collection at another time)
