Blogging 101 has just started and I’m already behind. CRAP!! First we were supposed to write an intro about what and why we blog. I saw the homework and thought, easy, I’ve already sort of done this in my post Why Blog and What am I doing. I had a plan to paraphrase and expand. It was going to be Awesome! Then I procrastinated…then I got genuinely busy, and then I just forgot about it. Today we are supposed to be connecting with others in the Commons. But I had a really stressful day and I’m exhausted. Crap I think there is a third prompt as well, I’m so lost.
Ok, I’m not going to allow myself to freak out. This is for fun, there is no pressure. I will repeat this mantra until it sinks in.
So to summarize why I blog: I blog as a diary. My hope is that by sharing my personal experiences regarding depression, infertility, aging, aging parents and life in general I can not only release some stress, gain some personal insight, but perhaps help others along the way.
Since I started writing in October I’m discovering like-minded individuals that have amazing ideas, wonderful stories, and fascinating lives. I love coming across new bloggers and having them find me in this vast sea of writers and topics.
Now, despite myself and my desire to continue this procrastination trend I’m off to the Commons to finish up my homework.
