I'm still a bit new to blogging and have struggled to decide and find out how best to make this blog thing work with me. I don't want to spend my days worrying about what to write about or how many comments I get back or how many followers. Then the few sites I looked at on 'how to blog' all suggested that it should have a central theme and you only talk about that one thing, this seemed very stiffling to me. I also worried about making them too long, there were times when I would read others blogs and then think to myself that I didn't have the time to 'follow' them back all the time. Which leads me to the last issue which was time, I don't want to spend too much time writing these things either, I have much better 'writing' to do and no offense, but better company in my household than this computer (but I still love all my internet friends too)

So where did all of that leave me...

With this little blog, where I will post when I can,as often or not as I want. It may not be regularly but I will try to make the posts interesting and short, less then 500 words, to save on my time and yours. If you decide to read and follow me, that's wonderful and I will try as often as I can to stop by and read your blogs too and leave a comment, even if all I have time to say is 'great post' at least you'll know I was there, right!

I hope you'll enjoy my little posts and that I'll enjoy them too.

Thanks for checking me out and I hope you stop by again to see just what kind of things I'll talk about but trust me, there is no theme, no great purpose, just me blogging about whatever is going on in this crazy head of mine.


  1. Hi Heidi,
    An open, honest and great first post. Look forward to the posts and your observations and keep those keys clacking.


  2. Short is good! - I struggle with that myself. But it's important to keep the reader interested...after a couple of paragraphs I know I've usually lost my audience! Great post! Really enjoyed it!

  3. As has already been mentioned, a nice honest and open approach, which is good as readers like that ...

    I wouldn't allow blogging to stifle you... treat it like a diary, or an experimental writing forum where you can try things out and get feedback. I've read several like that and they make engaging reading. It took me quite a while to get around to blogging after I started writing, and now I value feedback on shorter works that wouldn't go public in any other way.

    I hope you find something that works for you...
