A few weeks back, I experience an EPIPHANY. I have been on WordPress for years now, and have only posted 3 times up until now. Actually each of those posts was more of what I felt was an obligation to post something because I have a blog.
Well anyway, i was searching the other day for people I hadn’t heard about for a while, and wanted to see it they were leaving any footprints on the web. So I checked one individual out, and what did I find? He has a blog. And not just any kind of blog. A totally self-serving blog. And that does not surprise me, because that goes right along with the type of person he is.
I spent about a half an hour looking through his blog, which is about 29 minutes more than I should have. But here is where the EPIPHANY occurred.
One of the reasons I have not posted, is that I want to write a great, accurate, informative, and entertaining post. Well, I observed that, the opposite of that was occurring here. This person not only presents opinions of news items as fact, but also tells his audience that he doesn’t have time for an article, and why. (There is something inherently wrong with this concept, why not just ignore it)..
I guess he likes to type. He did have some comments, but not as many as I would have expected, as his name came up enough time on Google, that he could hardly be missed.
So, I am now going to blog. I have opinions, and most of what I will blog will be opinions. Lately, if I develop an opinion, someone will post, or editorialize, something supporting my opinion. So why not post my opinions first? I also know quite a bit of stuff. But I don’t really thing I know things that other people don’t know. Anyway, if I publish a fact, I will, hopefully, identify it as such.
Anyway, I will endeavor to blog, at least weekly. Maybe more frequently. Because I believe that what I have to say is at least as important as ‘What’s his name”.
