Wow, there are so many things that I could talk about in this first week of weekly “Wednesday Blogs”. I had ideas lined up – should I talk about depression (maybe not “clinical depression”, but general feelings of being down)? Should I talk about the idea of doing weekly blogs and what that entails for my life? With a friend who’s just had a new baby, another friend in Germany who gave birth last month, and a friend about to give birth in September, should I talk about moms and new life? On the other hand, I’ve experienced my share of loss this year. Both of my grandmothers passed away this year, one in January and one just this past week. So I suppose I lost a grandmother this month but gained a “niece” (not a blood related niece but close enough). My grandmothers were both in their 90s – no surprise to see them go, but emotional none the less. I have learned so much from them.
I don’t think I want to get into detail about any of those things. First of all, they are all fairly personal. I don’t think any of my close friends (well, maybe one or two) read this blog. But most who read it, I have never met. Personal stuff can be embarrassing to share, and also boring to those who are not involved.
To be honest, I don’t know who reads this blog, anyway. I don’t know a whole lot about my “fans” in general. So that is what this post will be about. If you wish, I’d like if you left a comment with a fact about yourself. As much or as little as you’d want to share. Can be personal or not, I understand, this is the Internet and I don’t think there’s a way to make it private (tho if you want to share annonymous comment go ahead, it makes no difference to me, I’ll know you’re a reader!). By doing this you’ll help me better know who I’m “speaking” to when I make blogs/vlogs/gaming videos. I do know some of you and it’s amazing the sort of connection you can make just through knowing someone online. It’s pretty neat.
Since I”m doing weekly blog posts now, it’d be pretty cool to know a bit more about what you readers are like, and what you’re interested in! I don’t want this to be a place, like my personal journals, where I just come to rant about what is on my mind! I can write on nearly any topic, so go ahead and choose/suggest my topics for me! If I don’t know anything about it, but am curious, I will research it and report my findings here! OK?
Cool, ok, go!
