blogging: is it all it's cracked up to be???

Having never "blogged" before, I'm not really sure how to go about it. Is it really how it's portrayed in "Julie & Julia" where if YOU have thoughts then SOMEONE out there is bored enough to care about them? Or is it just my generations form of keeping a journal... that lacks in privacy and personality. After all, you cannot glue ticket stubs or doodle scene by scene replays of events in a blog... all you have to carry you is your words and since its on the internet you'd better have something worthwhile to say! Otherwise, you'll always be remembered as the conformer who blundered the blogger bandwagon with nothing more than a day by day replay of everything from Juniors first bath to how much money you saved coupon clipping this week. It's time to ask ourselves "do people really care?" and if they don't... why should it matter? They do not have to read it. If it's important for YOU to remember and YOU are excited about the scrapbook paper you got on sale, then feel free, join the club. But knowing that on the internet you do not have your stylish clothes or fabulous baking skills to win your popularity, It's time to decide this. Am I interesting in what I say or am I portraying a personality dryer than aunt Shelley's Tofurkey on Thanksgiving day. The way I see it is no one wants to spend the time writing, if what people will be reading is bland. So here's my goal, I'll try to add a little Ms. Dash to this Tofurkey, if you are taking the time to read it. Deal? (and I'll try to save the complaints about too much homework and bad traffic for my real journal;) so hear goes nothing. We're on the air in 5...4...3...2...1...rolling!
