Sometimes you wonder, why bother?

I've been told for such a long time that I really should start a blog. I kept putting it off because the thought of people reading something written about me, written about my life, something so personal wasn't an idea that filled me with joy. Sharing my stories with the world felt strange. Don't get me wrong - I love writing. Just not about me. I'm all about fiction, fantasy and other people's lives.

It didn't dawn on me that for as many people that kept telling me it was time to step outside of my comfort zone and just do it there were just as many people who really could not have cared less about what I was writing. I mean, when you really think about it, who the hell was I to actually think that there were people who were genuinely interested in what I had to say? Sure, I posted a link on Facebook alerting my friends that I was finally going live with that blog. I thought that would create a buzz. I think it created a fizzle. Even my own mother hasn't read this yet. Yes, I've had to send some reminders but come on, do I have to get all old school on you now? Start advertising on the bathroom wall now? Well, actually, come to think of it, that might not be a bad idea. You get some really good reading done in those stalls. For a good time, call....
