I have hit a milestone! This is my 50th blog entry! Wow! I had no idea what I was getting into when I started doing this, I just wrote stuff down that I was thinking about and took it from there. But it has turned out to be a lot of fun for me, and a way to stay connected with a wide range of people that I know.
Pam wrote to me once and said that she wished everyone had a blog. I do too! It would be great to turn on my computer and just check what's going on in the brains of all the people I'd care to know that about. There is a short list of fellow bloggers that I know on the sidebar of my blog. I just wish it was longer. Which means that YOU should start one. It really is easy and only takes as much time as you want to put into it. Then I could read about you.
Aunt Chris said to me this weekend about my blogging: "If you ever go back to work now the people there will know how you really are." I don't know if that's true because I always have the choice to edit what I put here, I am in total control of the image I project. Although she has a point that I haven't been too careful about that. But then again, why shouldn't I want the people I interact with to know how I really am, isn't anything else misrepresentation? Maybe I'm still trying to figure it out anyways, whether I am Melinda or Mindy or Chloe's Piano Teacher's Wife of Tim and Jeff's Mommy or some combination of them all.
I have also been cautioned about security. "What if you get a stalker?" Well, I haven't gotten one yet, and how are they assigned anyways? I read on aol today that there are now over 70 million blogs out there with 120,000 added every day. So I figure that the chances of anyone taking that kind of interest in ME out of that is pretty slim.
So anyways I really do wish that I had more blogs to read, so you really should start one. Or if you already have then please let me know I will read it. Or if you know of any interesting blogs that you think I would like too, pass them on. And, of course, you are welcome to pass a link to my blog along to anyone that you know who might want to read it, unless of course they are stalkers.
