>After an interestingly short conversation with her about why I am not currently engaged to be married, one of my coworkers told me that I should start a blog.
“You’re so smart and creative! I’ll bet it would be great. All those single women out there would get a good laugh at your thoughts and adventures.”
OK, maybe she didn’t exactly say that, but it was close and a little weird since I’m pretty sure she doesn’t know about this blog. I wanted to tell her, but thought better of it. Seriously, how would I explain it to her? “Well, I have been blogging for years and there is really no point to it except self-indulgence.”
It also made me wonder if I have been short changing myself. Like most people, I am my own worst enemy and sometimes can’t see the forest for the trees, so to speak. Maybe I should start reading more successful blogs and figure out what it takes to do something similar. It probably helps to have a more cohesive theme than just my random ramblings.
I also considered starting a blog using my real name, but I’m still trying to figure out if that is a good idea. I don’t want to jeopardize my job. I really like it and finding something new right now is challenging to say the least.
A little nudge for the ego like that from a random person is always nice.
