I saw a friend the other day. She asked me how I was. As a joke I said,
Haven’t you read my status update? Ba da bum.
We know we are lives our changing when every real conversation we have ends with I’ll send you a link.
Are bloggers the new journalists?
Now that I’m a blogger, I approach life a little bit differently. When I go out and about I notice more details. I talk to people and I’ve started listening more to them as well. Maybe I’m just scouting for stories so I don’t run out of things to write about.
Goodness knows it’s hard to get me to be quiet so I don’t know why I would run out of ideas. The point is it’s time for me to zip the gab smacker known as my mouth and start listening.
I’m learning this from a blogger friend of mine. The way it works is this. You offer your story and then you ask to hear their story. So, letting caution to the wind, I say, hey, why not? I’ll give it a shot. Is your blog bloggalicious? Is your life life-alicous? Is your booty bootilicous?
Do you start every real conversation lately with I read your blog post or I saw your video on line?
Here’s a good one. When someone says they read your blog, do you sort of smile inwardly and think yeah, but did you leave a comment?
What do you think? People are reacting to me as if I were a writer. Now because I’m publishing a blog all of the sudden I’m a writer?
I’ll whip out some stories in the garage that I’ve kept for the last twenty years if you want to know that every day I’m a writer. The difference is that I’m now ready to share.
Did she just write what I think she just wrote?
Where’d I put the darn answer?
I’m thinking Oscar buzz peeps.
I’m thinking Oprah’s on the phone spectacular.
I’m thinking out of control spectacular.
Did any of this make sense? Beuller? Beuller? Am I writing to myself again? Where’s my editor? Where’s my teacher? Anyone checking this for factual information?
If any of you are returning visitors here to my site I’ve been working hard updating it. If you are new here, well then *welcome*.
My friends have texted me that they find my blog and what I’m doing over here inspiring. If I had a dollar for every time.. ha ha ha. That’s a good one.
I keep thinking about my friend who told me in a comment she thinks I’m technically gifted. It just makes me laugh.
I’m super satisfied that I linked to five awesome charities in my right column. The one I hold dearest to me is for my high school friend Kelli, Living in Grace.
As always hope this post finds you lovely, lucky and in love.
