My Sister Said It Was Time
Okay, figured out this blog thing two times in a row....Clearly on a roll. So I was chatting with my sister tonight and she said that I got brownie points for actually getting the first blog written but because she is the only person that I actually told, she is probably also the only one who read it. She seems to think that defeats the purpose. She said it was time to "blog" again and then share. And I realized that I am still in conflict with this entire concept of talking about the things that dance around in my head and then sharing them. The thought that anyone would really be interested, or should be interested seems unlikely but the question I actually have is do I have any DESIRE. The sis is a very accomplished speaker and coach, (check her out, karenmcnenny.com) and she is in the process of fully immersing her self in the on line world. She knows that building her business is dependent on mastering and harnessing the WEB. She knows why she is doing it, for whom she is doing it, and she has a strategic plan to accomplish her goals, I on the other hand am clueless. I am curious I confess to being somewhat amused and baffled by what makes someone stop and click on something or give it the all important like, but I don't know as though I have the "desire" to pursue the click. Hence right now this blog exists only in this little corner of my web site where some stranger may stumble upon it but I don't have much desire to make the leap to "sharing" . I hate that word almost as much as the word blog. I mean doesn't the word blog sound like you just barfed. I blogged...yep that about sums it up for me. So this is my little experiment to see if I can generate desire. To see if there is a way of engaging other like minded folk in a way that I might find surprising and interesting. And most importantly this is my little peep sound to see if there is anything dancing in my head that actually wants to be shared. I am looking for the art of the blog. Is this a medium that has an art? Is it useful? Or is it just throwing up the weird ideas dancing in our heads? So Sister here is your second blog, we all need to surround ourselves with those that can push us out of our comfort zone just because we might like it, so thanks for being my pusher. But the jury is still out on this barfing....I mean blogging thing.
