All those bloggers out there who never seem to lack a topic, who always have something to say that's worth reading. All those bloggers out there who can make me laugh till I cry. They make it look so easy! But I know better!
My solution? I'll just blog as if I'm talking to myself! Sort of like that thing where you write down every thought as it enters your head without thinking about it or having any sort of goal. I tried that once but I couldn't write as fast as the thoughts were flowing, and even if I could, sometimes my thoughts change course in mid-sentence, so it would have looked like so much gibberish anyway. Maybe that's the purpose though. I've never been quite sure...
I've been out of work for a month now, so I've got lots of time on my hands. I found Squidoo a few days ago and am having a ball with that. It's fun being able to create a "lens" about anything I want and just post it to the internet! Of course, I'll probably be able to count on one hand the number of people who'll ever READ them (kind of like this blog). But I decided I needed a blog too since I'm set on foisting my rambling thoughts onto unsuspecting web surfers. With a Squidoo lens I have to actually have a TOPIC and a POINT. That site was made for someone like me. I'm one of those people who likes to research things and learn things just for the fun of it. If they ever have a question about something, they come to me even if they know I won't have the answer, because I'll always GET the answer. Now I have somewhere to put my skills to use. And you can supposedly actually earn money from your lenses from royalties and stuff. Let's see if I can get a whole dollar by the end of 2010! Then I could buy a pack of gum or something. Oooh, or go on a one-item shopping spree at the dollar store! I've got visions of grandeur now, baby!
