If you keep getting the same message over and over, delivered in different ways, do you ignore it or do you pay attention? Normally I wait for it to jump out in front of me, hand raised like Diana Ross and The Supremes doing their best in silver sequins as they belt out “Stop!” Other times I try to take the hint a little earlier, this is one of those times.
I wouldn’t consider myself a blog type person, but the past week has had four different people say to me “What’s your blog address? I want to read more.” When I’ve said I don’t have one they’ve actually looked disappointed – go figure! – and insisted that I should write a blog, I could write a blog, I must write a blog. I hate disappointing people so figured what the hell, I’ll give it a go.
There was only one stumbling block, and it’s not the thought of writing. I quite like writing… I do some social media for my husband (more on that later), I’ve written an article or two previously and I write fabulous letters of compliment or complaint to various businesses. I also write the kind of Facebook statuses that usually have that little blue “See more” bit because I’ve got a bit carried away… which explains why I’m shocking at Twitter, I can’t limit my use of characters. I’m also rather prone to ellipses… oops!
Anyway, the stumbling block – a blog name. Yep, that’s what was holding me up. I couldn’t for the life of me think of one so I did the only sane and reasonable thing I could think of, I asked my best friend to come up with one. If you don’t like it, blame her. If you do like it then I guess we’d better give her credit.
So, now I have the blog name I guess I have to blog. *Iol*
