>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.
>Your blog is definitely funny. But trust me, stay anonymous. It's gets old having to go into hiding and change your address when you suspect people you don't want to know about it start catching on. I've been doing it since 2003. I've lost count of how many blogs I've started. Thank God I wasn't identified during the "party blog," "dating blog" or the "pharmacy blog" where I talked about shenanigans, horror dates and crazy things patients do. Stay private, my friend.
But on the other hand, we really do need to hang out sometime. I've know you in the blogosphere for years now and you're a cool chica!
>Thanks for the advice!
