First Day

Ahhhh, my day started by sleeping in, drinking some great coffee...going to lunch, a little shopping for some needed things and now blogging. Its been a great day to start off the new year.

I have really enjoyed reading some of the new blogs I have found. Some of them are funny, others are inspirational and other are full of beautiful photography. Its nice to sit down at the computer and read things from people of all different walks and views of life.

I have always loved writing. In high school, my english teacher used to encourage me to write, he said if I applied myself and continued to learn I could do it in a professional manner. I got away from it though, and now I read what others are writing and feel inspired to write.

I have several friends that have continually encouraged me to write about my life. I have written several blogs about my childhood and some of the events. I just sometimes want a break from that because it is a darker side of my life, though I know that writing about my life is theraputic. Through this year I want to write some more about my life experiences and also to get back to some of the writing I used to do.

Blogging is great therapy. Blog for yourself and write what you feel. It is so rewarding for you and those that read your blog too.

Yeah I also flunked high school (and college) English. Just not my cup of tea.

Maybe it should be tea.

oh yeah and ditto what whimsicalnbrainpan said. That's the same reason I blog. But you already knew that ;)
