This is a new endeavour for me. I've been an avid reader/lurker of many-a-blog for some time now however writing things, feelings, experiences that others will read is new to me. It appeals to me for some unknown reason and yet being judged as a result of what or how I write is something that holds me back.
I guess that is one of my goals in writing this blog. I have this compulsion to express myself and discuss, and this seems to be a good outlet. Ha, who I am kidding....it's my only outlet!
I received a comment today on one of my posts and was rather shocked and humbled to see that it was one of my favourite bloggers, Neil, from Citizen of the Month. This man is truly entertaining and a superb writer, and I have to admit that I'm embarrassed for him to have read my amateur ramblings, but HOLY F#CK, how cool is that? I've been cracking up on his conversations with his penis for some time. He's like a celebrity in my eyes!
Blogging and reading blogs is a different world for some. It allows one to anonymously pry into the thoughts of a willing subject. It feeds that inquisitive need. My experience is that it can be therapeutic in knowing that you are not the only one with insecurities and flaws.
It gives me solace to know that there are real people out there trying to find themselves as well.
