Twilight Zone Introduction
Have you ever felt that you were “Lost in the Abyss of the Internet?” I mean with over 100 million Blogs out there in the Internet’s abyss it makes me feel special every time someone visits my site. Then to have them leave a comment to let me know that they were here, and what kinds of thoughts were induced by whatever entry that they read, just makes me feel wonderful and happy: It makes my day!
I have a really tough time leaving comments on other people’s sites so I completely understand why most people don’t want to take the time to leave a comment. But if you really think about what drew you to their site in the first place, you have to admit that out of the millions of sites that they could have chosen, they came to yours. I find that fascinating and very unusual, and quite a boost to my ego when I see their hit on my statistics page.
Have you ever really thought about the odds of a person clicking on your website verses another’s website? The number has to be astronomical about the same as winning the lottery, wouldn’t you say? It makes me wonder, Why does anyone visit my website? I pretty much just write about whatever is on my mind every day, it is like my Journal.
The reason that I make my website public is because if I didn’t I wouldn’t write every day. It is my proof that I am accomplishing the challenge that I made to myself to write something every day. Yesterday, I couldn’t think of anything to say and I wrote: Question About Writing, “I know it doesn’t make any difference what I write about; I am just doing this for some writing practice.“
Keeping the idea alive as to the purpose of my writing to “Learn Something New” is always getting lost in the grandeur of writing. The thought being: It should be educational, it should be entertaining, it should be creative or whatever I think it should be gets lost in what it is, and that is very basic: Just to write and to express my thoughts into writing. I am the one that keeps making writing difficult for myself and I just can’t seem to get that through my head and make myself stop.
