VOF Week 3: (Fearless Blogging...)
My despair grew higher as I realized I did not have a clue about blogging. Gee, I must get into it! I should start building up a blog… Reach the blogosphere… HTML… interesting, challenging… completely out of my daily routine…
Nine out of ten times, I know what I am doing. I am known for being annoying sometimes and scaring people by the amount of pressure I put into them when I ask them to perform their tasks in this or that way. That is because I am used to being ‘the hole of the doughnut’, completely knowledgeable, intensely ‘into it’ (letting everyone know about it, too). Oh, yeah, I know it all… Do I really? I found out today that this is not the real case!
Sisters, I have got to cry out for help, as I am not the tough cookie anymore. Here is THE one topic I don’t know anything about: blogging…
Today I have browsed postings from my friends to see how they went about this assignment, and I got really inspired. I said to myself: ‘ wow, this is it, now I can start writing’… and when I sat down in my computer, words just would not come to me. I had to cope with this irrational feeling of despair, as I realized words weren’t coming not because I was a bad writer, but because for the first time in my life, I am not knowledgeable and dependable in the matter I have to write about, so to speak, I just am not a blogger.
Or so I thought until I read some more posts. Then I realized I had been blogging all this time by posting my entries here! And I got to know about my peers and their experiences, so I felt like a kid with a new toy. I laughed at myself outloud when I realized I was such a youngster in this arena, and that, due to my ignorance, I have been doing some fearless blogging, meaning that I have made a lot of mistakes.
But then again, what’s the regret? Since acting young and fearless in the blogosphere (wow, what a nice word), has given me the chance to meet so many new girlfriends, from all over the world, from such different backgrounds, and most importantly, to get to love them and understand their different points of view, I have nothing to worry about. I may well be the most ignorant blogger right now (Gosh, my coworkers are going to love to hear me admit I am ignorant about something, they will make fun of me for at least a month), but I am also the most eager to learn.
