During the day I’ll think countless times “I’ll write something about this on StateDOG.com,” but then I forget about it by the time I’m infront of a computer. So that’s why no real update yesterday. I guess I’m still trying to find my “blogging voice”, if you know what I mean. There are different types, you know. I know some that just put out links to other stories that the author finds interesting. Not much commentary, just “Hey, check this out” and a link. Others seem to focus on a particular theme or topic of the author’s life (politics, partying, preaching, pets, parenthood, pessimism, pretty girls, physical fitness, personal journals.) And there are some that are just a daily diary of what someone did that day (“I went to Wal-Mart and saw my cousin there. She’s gained weight. Then I went home and watched the Little House on the Prarie marathon for 6 hours…”)
So what will mine be? Who knows? I bet that it will grow and mature at a rate all its own and eventually find a voice that’s a combination of all of the above (minus the Little House on the Prarie.) But now the question is how personal can I get on here. Not deep dark secrets. But if I have a frustration with someone and write about it, what if they happen to read it? If if I have a gripe with my work place, what if a coworker or boss reads about it? What if a family member has really been getting on my nerves and they read about it? You see? Anyway, I’m still green at this…I’ll figure it out.
