Don’t you think it’s strange how sometimes things just seem to align themselves perfectly? I’m always in awe of that when it happens. I guess it’s true it is a choice we make to see (or not) miracles. I’m not saying I’ve witness a miracle, far from it, but the universe is giving me signs. At least, that is how I’m seeing it.
I love to write, but when I do so I tend to write simply. I’d love to do it more elaborately, but somehow it’s just not how I do it. I’ve been wondering where I’m going in regards to this blog. I love my blog and even more the people I’ve met (and still will) through it. It brought me pleasure in reading comments, and I think I’ve made friends along the way as well. I tried joining different sites to increase my traffic and lately I’ve been wondering if it was worth it. I’m not doing it for money, I don’t get paid per post; I do it because I enjoy putting my thoughts down on “screen”. When I read Kim’s post about what makes a good blog (according to him, of course) I thought interesting the timing of his post. Then I read Meg’s about being an impostor. I feel like that at times, since I write for my pleasure. I’m selfish. I assume it.
I think my blog is easily readable. I’m lazy (I also assume that) so when I see a very long post with no breaks (paragraphs) I tend to click away. I’ve stopped visiting some blogs because of that (I know, it’s bad). It was or at least looked like too much, for me at the time.
I think there’s a “story” to my posts. I might give too many details at times, granted. I share my views and I know I vent a little too much, but I’m not constantly moaning, right? Right!
Joking aside, I thought it was strange as I’m questioning myself about my writing ability or lack thereof, and two bloggers would post about what makes a good blog and not being a “real” writer/journalist.
In other news, I received a nice award from someone I do think is a great writer, the Flurrious one, herself. Can you believe she went through the trouble of creating personalized awards for those of us who did ask? I just love mine.
I cracked up when I saw it. I think it’s funny how her award follows my last posts about being bilingual since it is all because of this man that we are a bilingual country. 'Telling you, the stars were aligned!
