This is it! DAY 200. I have completed 200 posts of complete and utter drivel. Talked about the mundane and the completely mundane. Do I have something to celebrate? Should this be seen as some sort of wonderful feat?…hell yes and hell no. There is a lot to be said to be taking on ‘a practice’, ‘a discipline’ but I am sure that writing banal posts about sensible shoes and where I had my lunch yesterday is going to change, save or even lightly tickle the world.
I started off doing my posts so I was doing something other than running singing groups, as my life was getting very one directional. Just for me,… so why publish? another fine question. Is there not enough drivel on the net without me contributing more?
We are in a place with the internet where we are still trying it out for size. I think only bloggers understand bloggin…its a bit like train spotting for the 21st century. I know loads of people just don’t bother reading my blog as it pops up everyday on my facebook page, and why should they? Life’s too short, some people fill up facebook with event after event after exciting things they are doing…. I used to think people who had blogs were just completely self obsessed. It is not really self obsession that which keeps me blogging. I am hoping at the end of the year, a snapshot of my life will have emerged which might be a bit fun, a bit interesting, a little bit humorous……and with any luck, something far more useful or creative will come out of having this discipline everyday. Maybe I shall write a song a day, a poem a day, clean a cupboard a day….what a world of possibilities there are! If you happen to be here with me thats lovely, and a comment is even better. later x x x
