♫ ♫Oh wooooouldn’t it be bloggerly? ♫ ♫
Okay, so I pilfered repurposed that tune from one of my favorite movies of all time, my fair bloggers, but it was the only way I could get it out of my head. If you’ve never seen Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle, you are missing out on a classic performance. I love the scene at the race track when Eliza forgets for a moment that she is in the company of ladies and gentlemen and shouts out, “Come on Dover, come on Dover, move your bloomin’ ass!” That is totally something I would have done.
The public forum of blogging is civilized, for the most part; people are supportive and polite to one another. That has been my experience. I haven’t had to post the statement:
BE NICE OR LEAVE…yet.
Topics here vary widely depending on not much more than the barometric pressure and what strikes me as worth writing about. I know that not everything I write is everyone’s cup of tea. It’s interesting that just about the time I start thinking I have nothing more to say, inspirations taps me on the shoulder. This week it was a voice message from my dad saying that he was calling for no reason in particular, just wanted to say “Nice pictures, keep on blogging.” That my dad takes the time to read my blog is HUGE to me.
Questioning whether or not to keep blogging is something I do at least once a week from time to time. This usually happens on days when I’ve had to resist the temptation to repurpose something I wrote that NOBODY, not even my dad, read. Don’t worry; I will bore you with an inventory of my obsolete skills before I dredge up tales from the crypt.
As another week comes to a close and a new month is beginning, I think it’s time to give a shout out to some ladies and gentlemen who inspired me in February. It’s the bloggerly thing to do. Thanks to EVERYONE for reading, writing, sharing, and in one way or another unwittingly contributing to my effort to keep on blogging.
