I have been asked the Why Do You Blog Q by many,
There are a number of reasons, the most truthful being,
I like to, particularly in this forum, in many ways it is like an online journal...
When I started writing, I didn't want to blog, not in the way that many did,
My son actually set up my Myspace account,
And while I enjoyed stopping by and commenting on blogs,
It just never quite worked for me, too much something...
I guess because it was work, any many ways it felt like another job...
About a year and half ago, though I wrote a local article, entitled, 'What Makes You Jealous',
And it inspired much conversation,
I was amazed at how that word caused so many to react,
As a result of that I had a stream of emails from people who wanted to explain to me why they weren't ever jealous,
Or confess that they were but they didn't want to call it that...
This went on for days,
Finally one woman suggested I start a blog,
Hmmm, still I wasn't sure,
But one day I sat down and researched it and a blog was born,
I knew I simply wanted to Ramble, so that's what I called it,
And I love it because I can 'talk' about anything,
And anyone who chooses to come by can and either join in,
Or they can glide by saying nothing,
I get emails from folks about my blogs moreso than anything,
Because I have learned that to many a blog is a lot like an answering machine,
Many just don't want to leave their voice print,
Other times I am sitting somewhere and someone will say,
"Girl I read your blog today, so and so told me about it and I just want to say, it is just what I needed today...'
That is the same way I post on blogs,
I have those I check and post on as often as they post,
The ones that inspire me, entertain me, enlighten me, or simply brighten my day,
Others I read and glide on by,
I understand the simple rules, everything is not for everyone,
And somedays you are going to hit your blog marks,
And other days....well you feel me...
Someone asked me how do I get people to participate...
I told them that I send out new blog post info to those who post regularly,
The others come and go...
I also told her that I only send it out once,
Folks know if they want to come by or not...
So I blog because I like to, sometimes it's just fun, other times it's like therapy,
Many times it's just a way to RAMBLE...
