Blogging etc.

I like blogging.  I like writing something, publishing it and knowing that it might possibly be read by someone else.  I find it enjoyable to proof read my posts to hopefully eliminate grammatical errors, and I like to try to make my writing humorous and include interesting photographs.  However, I don’t particularly like blogging about how I feel.  
I don’t like putting pen to paper (or rather, fingers to keyboard) and writing down emotions.  It feels like an intrusion of personal space, and I am in awe of those who have the courage to spill out what’s going on inside for public criticism.  I would never criticise, you might say - but in reality I think everyone does, at least to some extent.  
I enjoy reading other people’s blogs, and reading those that do delve into their inner feelings.  I like to see that I am not the only person who feels a particular way, or even that other people think entirely differently to myself.  I would, however, hesitate before doing so myself.  In the same way, I find it very hard to talk to other people about how I feel about something.  It’s difficult to confront people, and much easier just to go along with the flow.  Indeed, it’s much easier to have a conversation with someone via text rather than verbally, and verbally is much easier than face to face.  
You will be happy to know that it will be a long time before I consider writing anything personal on this blog - if ever !  For now, it is back to the mundane.
This afternoon we’re going shopping.  Like, proper shopping.  Like, proper shopping for whatever takes my fancy.  So excited - it’s been waaay too long !  So now I must go and get myself ready - riot shield, helmet, taser... I think this blog has been way too serious so far today, so I must make an end to such things.  Did I mention that someone stole my cat?  The rudeness of people nowadays daring to steal things from my possession.  Do they not realise that possession is 9/10ths of the law?
Also, did I mention how much I like bats?


  1. Not criticising, you understand, but just for your next grammatical error-check, note that it should be 'differently from me' as opposed to 'differently to me'! I do agree about how hard it is to put feelings on paper, though! And I do appreciate your blogging!

  2. How can you hope to entirely hide your feelings?
