One month down, 11 more to go
January has flown by and given me an “interesting” month. At least February is a short month. It will help having that extra day in there this year so I can meet my goal as well as wish friends I have who were born on February 29th a truly “Happy Birthday.”
It’s been fun this month posting every day. People have loved some of my posts. People have hated some of my posts. Sometimes they were the same posts. And many of them have been largely ignored. It doesn’t bother me either way how people feel about them or whether or not they’re read. I’m doing this for myself and so far I’m liking it pretty well.
The hardest thing is coming up with a good topic each day. Often something will happen and it gets my dander up enough to write about it. Other times I’m reminded of something I’ve heard/read/watched and want to share it with those of you who read this. The majority of the time, however, I’m sitting and staring at the computer trying to think of a topic that won’t bore you to death or be so incredibly dull that it becomes the most-read item on the blog and then I’m known not for my humor or intelligence or opinion but only for the most incredibly successful cure for insomnia published on the Internet.
I can only write about the dogs so many times and I’ve still got a LOT of the year left to go. I’d write more about my family but I’m just not there yet and not everyone wants to hear every little thing happening. And though my most popular articles so far have been about television shows, I don’t sit and watch television all day enough where I’d be able to comment on a really wide variety of awful shows. And they’d have to be awful because all of the great shows have people writing and tweeting and blogging about them already.
So, thanks to those who have stuck with me since day-one. And thanks to all who have shared my articles with their friends and brought new readers to my little corner of the interwebs.
Oh, and don’t worry….the “voices” are still there and still driving me insane and still keeping me up at night. Fortunately they’re starting to try to schedule dates for certain subjects, so maybe the blog will be a little more organized. But I wouldn’t count on it.
