To blog or not to blog?....that was the question

Ah, my very first blog of the year, of my life in fact. I like to think it momentous, though amongst the trillions held captive in cyber space right now, relatively speaking I suspect it's not. I guess for me, blogging is something I've wanted to delve into for a while now but for two very different reasons I've been putting it off. The first was this; does blogging suppose you have something to say that anyone would care to read and if so is there an arrogance in that? The very fact there is SO much that can be read, it seems bizzare to consider that people would give their time to reading that which I might spout, any of us little people might spout for that matter. But then I changed my mind, after all, those who know me well already suffer at the many ideas per minute I spout from my lips and maybe now before I get overly animated about them I shall say coldly with an air of superiority "regarding this matter, I'd like to refer you to my blog" ;)

Most of my thoughts, twiddles and musings to date have lived out their existence only in journals, the over used part of my brain and perhaps less so, the underused part of my good friend's brains. I would defo consider myself the great thinker amongst us (note: by this I mean over thinker. Compadres; your thoughts I am sure are of the highest callibre and are far more efficient than mine. Sharon, regretfully sister I don't count you among them ;)) So I figure if I start blogging I shall free up a little right brain space that I might not become a damn of wonderment, or indeed nonsense. And if my blogs are never read by a single soul, it will do my heart good to know that some of it got to seep out cyberward. Weirdly though, if noone ever does read this I am now writing to myself...but self know this "you are normal!"

The second reason for my dawdling, and might I say the more superficial one, was that I wanted to come up with a half memorable blogspot address. As it happened I chose 'This day we write' 'coz it just popped into my head moments before embarkation into the set up process. It's funny how stuff just comes up when you aren't thinking too hard aye. And yet I totally got where this train of thought came see my heart knows that 'the pen is mightier than the sword' and perhaps if more of us drew out our pens, we could kick some collective literary butt!! So this day I write, and maybe the next and the next and somewhere along the way maybe I'll 'cut you deep brother'.

So do read on and do be kind but remember also, regarding a good debate.....I'll take you all on!!


  1. Well well well, this is how you roll is it? get one follower and the power goes to your head. Let's see how you like this eh, I've read your insults and thats it....I'm off to join Danny's cult not yours....he's NICE. I'm sure he'll appreciate my many efficient thoughts. MANY efficient thoughts. Yeah he will!

  2. I'll give you insults! Finally I reached the end! But that is NOT a comment on the entertainment factor of your blogging skills or not thereof, merely a statement on my poor reading skills. Yes, I have indeed somehow braved my reading phobia AND the small hours of the morning just to get to the end of this little musing...despite being earlier informed of the horror of my scary face on facebook! How does she manage to achieve such a following despite such bruising insults to her faithful? We'll never know...
