One thing I avoid when blogging is the vain, drastically desperate plea for attention begged for by posting a breasty female photo. In this instance I posted one of myself. I really hope you like it. Is it okay? OMG, I hope you like it a lot!
As this is my first blog in well over a year I was warned to skip the pratfall of discussing the writing process. Even though pratfalls are revered in other ways, for instance there’s Jerry Lewis from numerous comedy classics or even that guy who said, “Don’t tase me bro!” Whatever the case may be, I’ve decided to forget the rules and write this blog about how I’m writing this blog.
Hence the title:
Tina discusses writing a blog, this blog, that she is writing.
I’ve turned it into an acronym to help you all remember it better.
This choice of subject matter frees me from fretting over entertainment value. I’ve heard that the trouble with many blogs is writers hope to engage the readers with something interesting. That is not my plan. Therefore I have little chance of failing. Failure is what leads a large percentage of bloggers to fail.
Furthermore, I’m the type who dislikes typecasting, trying painstakingly to avoid it… Let’s discuss… Studies show certain types of people enjoy personal stories that relate to their own lives. No matter how boring their lives might be, people can always strain to find relevance. Which is why it’s also advised you add questions at the end, so readers can engage by answering these questions. I’ve also read that good writing is all about the details.
Personal Story Circa May 2009 (a Tuesday).
The sun was a hot yellow color located distinctly in the sky, up above where planes and species of birds often fly. Coincidentally, last year while on vacation, I met a married couple. The husband was between 20 and 40. The wife was of indeterminate age ranging between 20-40. She had brown hair. They appeared in love. It was cool because I enjoy love.
Have these things ever happened to you? Or has anything other than this happened to you? When was it, where and why? Feel free to flood the comment section and share with me as I have done so freely and openly with you.
