I haven’t blogged in a couple of years. When I initially started a blog, it was as a new experience, something to test my writing abilities, learn about ‘current media’… whatever. Over a very short space of time, it became so much more, and I credit the A-to-Z Challenge with that.
I had only written an entry or two before I decided to try the challenge, and at first, it was what I expected, what I planned. I didn’t have a theme (this was casual, after all), so I wrote about, well. everything!
I wrote general musings, trains of thought that just passed through the station of my mind. But as I went along, I found myself more involved, digging just a little deeper, and in the end, I felt like I had bared too much of myself. So I (like a coward) deleted my blog, hoping it would erase the embarrassment I felt at these transgressions of confidence.
I’ve realized though, that this is the wrong route to take. Enjoying the creativity of writing is a pleasure not to be discarded lightly. Sooooo…. here I am again. Wish me luck, as I do you, and tread gently. 😉
