A Month of Blogs
I think it's helped my writing skills. I think it's helped relieve some stress. I think it's inspired to write on a more frequent basis than I usually do (once a month if I'm lucky.) I do think, though, that I am at somewhat of a disadvantage in terms of subject material.
You, see. I'm a doctor. You would think I would have tons to write about given I work in the Emergency Department. But, like I said before, patient confidentiality aside, I live in a small town. In a smallish area. Where most everyone know everyone. I can be at some random medical society meeting and find that the neighbor who walks her St. Bernards around town is the mother of the dental hygenist who is sitting next to me. So, around here, it's difficult to talk about patients because most everyone will know who I am talking about.
I could talk about my new hobby farm. Twenty-five acres of pine trees and rolling hills that hasn't had any work done on it for the last 17 years and on which we're still uncovering hidden treasures from time to time. Not to mention the small flock of birds which I have added and will be adding to: my little bantams and guinea fowl. AND, the biggest part of all, renovating and remodeling the house which also has seen nothing done to it in 17 years.
But, seriously, are those things people would be interested in hearing about? Looking around at the more popular blogs on BlogHer which I've been cross-posting on this month, I'm not a single girl doing the dating scene in the big city. I'm not the country mom talking about raising my 5 kids while home-schooling and baking pies. I'm not the city girl living in a foreign country learning how to milk yaks and make my own cheese.
So how about I get some comments going on here.... how about you tell me what you like and don't like. Hello, hello...? Is this thing on...? Better tell me soon, or I will start posting a dream journal... like this afternoon, I was a spy, kinda like the guy on Burn Notice... and then...
