To blog or not to blog that is the question. When I set up Just Add Attitude I didn’t have an iota of a notion whether I would simply write four or five posts and then stop, or if I would continue jogging along the blog route ad infinitum.
My motivation for starting the blog was multilayered and verily some of the reasons why I did are now lost in the misty cobweb-y recesses of my memory. In the here and now I post on JAA because: I like the writing process; I like that I have a record of where I go and what I do; and I like especially that you read it and thank you so much for doing so.
Occasionally I have fleetingly thoughts that I might stop, they usually float into my mind when I am totally stumped for something to write about or am feeling out of tune with the world, but I quickly dismiss them as the blog has become part of my life and I now cannot imagine not writing it, even though I don’t update it that frequently.
One of the things I struggle with is the question: how should I blog. I write about stuff I like and things that appeal to me and obviously I hope they will be of interest to you too. And I want the blog to be honest and true to who I am without it being hugely revelatory about my life.
A couple of people who I know, albeit not very well, and like said, à propos of what they had read on the blog, that I lead a glamorous life. Er, me, no, absolutely not. A squillion times no. My life is anything but glamorous, in fact it’s extremely humdrum and I am quite content to have it so.
The most interesting thing I have done in the last four days or so was to bring my car to the car wash. Weirdly I enjoyed it because it’s one of those car washes where you clean the car yourself with a powerful jet stream of water, which dissolves the dirt, and it was super satisfying to see my car transform from grime-laden to squeak-y clean. Still and all, it would be difficult to make a glamorous blog post out of the details!
