Fun Monday 08.27.07

Lisa's Chaos is hosting this weeks "Fun Monday."

"I’d like to know more about you, what makes you tick. I’d like to know how you started blogging. Did you keep a diary under lock and key safely hidden as a child? Do you still? Do you share the same things on your blog that you would have, or do, in your diary? Why did you start blogging and why do you continue? May as well throw in any roadblocks you have run into while blogging. If you still have your old diaries we’d love to see them."

I only have been blogging for a couple of months now, so my answer to this assignment will be shorter than others.

I did not wake up one day, and decide "Hey, I'm gonna start blogging." My web interactions were mainly with forums/bulletin boards. But everyone here knows how dangerous those places can be if you are not part of the "in crowd." My wife Debs has been a full blown crack, I mean, blogging addict for some time, and I guess I needed to do something potentially fun, as well as having something else in common with her. I soon discovered that the ability to rant about anything I want to, without any repercussions was a refreshing way to vent.

I have never kept a journal, and I cannot see a journal anytime in my future. If I did keep a journal, I am sure a large portion of what I blog would be included. The only road block I had when I started out was getting used to how this thing works, which I am learning slowly.

I continue blogging because of the diverse and interesting friends I am making while I am blogging. Interaction is just another way of upkeeping my humanity.

Unfortunately, since I have never kept a journal, I do not have any old journals to reveal to anyone.

Its nice that the two of you blog. Willi and I sure did enjoy it. I had some rough patches getting started. Once I started messing with the template and lost the whole darn thing. What a mess. It did get easier though - don't give up!

Debs said...

You can be my friend...if I can be your friend.

You too funny. I just wanted to say that I am not using crack, I have never used crack, and will never use crack. But blogging can be addicting like crack. :P

i like the "upkeeping my humanity" aspect of blogging too. :o)

thanks for stopping by!

I wonder how my life would be if my husband blogged? fortunately, he has no interest - or maybe he does - and is doing it on the sly. Wouldn't that be wild!

Meleny said...

Keep at it, eventually youll be too deep in to pull out Lol.

Robocop said...

Pull out? Hell no! I'll keep it in there until I get the job done, and I'll keep on blogging.

my hubby has a web site for his bicyle group... he puts a lot of work into it. built it himself.

I don't think a web site is as addicitive as crack/blogging ha ha ha.

Poor Deb... tell her to slap you up side the head

mjd said...

Oh, you are Deb's spouse. Maybe I wasn't paying attention to figure this out. I am glad that the two of you blog instead of doing crack. ;) My husband is a sometimes blogger and comments frequently.

Robocop said...

I do not need to tell Debs to slap me upside the head, she has an automatic mechanism for this.

Beccy said...

Just catching up with the Fun Monday posts...

My hubby is neither a blogger or a reader but he has got to enjoy some of the lovely things I've been sent by fellow bloggers.
