A Word to the Wise

Why Blog?

All it takes to write in a Blog

Is a Writer who is a Blogger

and a Reader who reads Blogs.

If someone is reading that Blog

–even if the blog is about nothing

then all the components are there:

the Blogger blogs,

and the Reader reads.

And IF he is reading, and she is blogging

then there is a connection

a piece of her mind

for good or for bad

is read and ingested

and taken to heart.

So what if the Post is about Nothing?

If its being read someone is interested

this is obvious right from the start.

The Key to blogging may be

not so much clever phrases

or figures of speech

as simply a communication.

So, if a blog is about Something

then it can’t be about Nothing.

What does that all mean?

If one is blogging…

well, they are blogging.

and if Reading?

Thank you for reading along!

    Good….Very Good….If I dare say so….one of the best I’ve read of yours…;)

      thank you…you are so sweet to say that. I seem to do better with stuff I write off the top of my head then some long thought out pieces.
      I have made writing my top priority…it is the thing that must be done before anything else. For too many years it was more of a reward that never really came true.

        Remember this does not always work…… 😉

        what…relying on stuff from my brain?

      3. Bushka Avatar

        You’d be surprised at how much goes on in the brain about which we know very little. 😉

        they say we only use ten percent of our brain capacity normally

        True of most people, I should think; though, all of us would have difficulty accessing the ‘Unconscious parts’…. 😉

        some memories are sharp as new, others rather stylized 🙂 It is interesting what information will come flooding to the front page though.

    Thank you for twisting my mind along the way 😄

      I borrowed that phrase, or word at least, from you. I didn’t realize it at first, now I see it. just sort of insinuated it into my subconscious I think.

        You did a great job. We glean off knowledge from so many places 🙂

      2. Gradmama2011 Avatar

        thanks…I apologize…its just that the phrase stuck in my subconscious I think. I didn’t do it on purpose. 🙂

        in my original scribble of the “curls your toes” poem I had the words “twisted tongue”…and everytime I looked at it it made me uneasy, and I rewrote the line to “chills the heat of the… ?” I need to check, as I re-did the wording twice before publishing it. “twisted” is a good word I guess…LOL

      4. jacquelineobyikocha Avatar

        🙂 it is hopefully. That twisted is in my blogs name 😉

        I know…that’s what I’m saying, apparently I was so impressed with your title that it stuck in my mind. I do like your theme, Matala I think.

      6. jacquelineobyikocha Avatar

        Yes it’s Matala. I checked the poem link and remember that I read it. It was quite amusing. Indeed he has a loud trumpet and stomping all over the place 😉

        thanks. I’m having internet problems this morning, even slower than usual.

      8. jacquelineobyikocha Avatar

        Mine drove me crazy two days ago :/

        I think part of the problem is too many pictures. I was thinking last night that I need to back-up my blog…and print some of it out on paper. I’m a great paper person.

      10. jacquelineobyikocha Avatar

        I think that’s a great idea really. I will do same too. Thank you for drawing my mind to this.

        my problem was when I had windows8.1 it was so bad that I sort of lost my confidence … it was next to impossible for me to get photos onto the site or onto ebay for that mattr. They fixed that, so now its easier. I’m still trying to do it the hard way of course.

    Interesting reflection – you are quite right! Love the look of this page, and that header photo is gorgeous and reminds me of a French Impressionist painting.

      thank you! I love it when someone actually gets my intention. The original of that photo is pretty mundane, but I too love the way it turned out.
