As a novice blogger, I don’t know really how to begin….
Should I start off with a question? Should I assume that there is anyone out there in the world of unknown cyberspace? Should I have someone read my blog before, I dare say, post it? Ugh!
What about my paragraphs? Should I indent or should I leave a space between them? Should I follow the traditional rules of grammar or be a rebel and make sure I don’t care about nothing? Double ugh!
What about contractions? Does anyone care if I prefer isn’t over is not or it’s over it is? Who doesn’t contract nowadays anyways? In this world of high speed cyberspace and technology that gets outdated the next day, aren’t contractions fitting to reflect the brevity of time that we have each day? Triple ugh!
How about protecting my inner thoughts? Would an introvert who is trapped in the extrovert world be forced to reveal everything? Would I be stripped of all my privacy as I “blab” my beliefs in the cyber universe? Would people actually listen? Would I allow them to listen or will I hide all of my real thoughts? Quadruple ugh!
What about the beliefs of others on my page? Should I really take constructive criticism well or should I lash out with a witty remark? What if no one cares? What if no one wants to comment? Do I need to rethink my strategic approach to writing? Isn’t it a good thing if someone cares, even if one cares not to care? This is where my math stops ugh!
What if I end it abruptly? Is that really bad? Would it be a nightmare to leave a blog unfinished in the cyber world? Would it go to straight to the cyber black hole? No more ugh left!
