Things have been up and down with me the past few weeks. I’ve had some post op situations I’ve had to take care of. I’ve had quite a few bouts of fibro attacks to deal with. I also have had to try to get as much gardening done as possible. Not to mention taking care of my kids while all this is going on!!! Boy was I running on empty for a while.
Sorry I have been so neglectful here at JustOrdinary. Hopefully that will change soon.
I have however started writing part five of The Seed Of Infidelity. It should be finished soon for those of you following that story. It has been an interesting story for me to write….hard at times of course…but also nice to have something flowing out of me.
I just wanted to update you all on what is going on in my hectic life and what will be coming to JustOrdinary soon! I know some people are just waiting for the next piece. Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to that story. When life takes over what can you do? You know.
Well, hope all is well with my readers. I’ll be posting for you again soon!
I was asked why do I BLOG? What do you get out of it I was asked? So I will address it now for the cyber world to see.
I started blogging so that I could put my poetry up for critique. I’ve been writing for over 15 years in all forms and I thought why not take it to the next level, that being the cyber world. Eventually blogging lead to many other things. It led to a journal where I could put my thoughts out and it has helped a great deal so that kept me blogging.
When I had problems with medical stuff it was a place to vent about the hurdles I was climbing. It was a place to ask for advice. It was a place to find others who were the same as I. When I got a diagnosis blogging became a way to put out information about Fibromyalgia and to help be an advocate in getting people aware of its existence.
Eventually I decided to post up my fiction writings for the cyber world to critique as well. I enjoy that a lot too.
What do I get out of blogging? Well, I get tons of support first off. Second, I get a sense of release I can’t get anywhere else. Here I am camouflaged to most who read it. Some know my true identity, but most don’t and that gives me some peace.
It is nice to have others read what I write and know that I’ve touched their lives in some way when they leave a comment like that. It is nice to know that something I write has changed someone in the world in a good way when they comment in that way.
Also it gives me something to do that doesn’t take much from me. It is something I love to do- write. It is easier for me to with my medical problems. I absolutely love blogging and I encourage others to jump on the bandwagon if they haven’t already. Come on! You can do it! Just create a page and start writing your thoughts out. People enjoy reading it.
So that covers why I BLOG and what I get out of doing it to all that wonder. You should try it yourself if you haven’t!
