Finally Understand.....I Think!!

Blogging!! This has really been confusing to me for ages. Everyday I've asked myself....just how do I blog.....what about...and why? No answers come to me out of the thin air that surrounds me. I just sit there facing the pc screen and wonder, wonder, wonder!
So today I thought I'd talk about what I'm doing for interest and fun. I make comments on authors giveaways in hopes of winning the featured book. I've been pretty lucky in that I've won about 8 books so far. I love it!!!
I've had this yen to write for a long time. I'd like to write about the traumatic and dramatic circumstances I've lived through the past almost 72 years. Do I know how to write? I'm a great speller and understand vocabulary pretty well, but could I put words together to make enough sense and interest another person to read my writings? Guess I'll never know unless I give it a try!
This is actually my first blog. I'm wondering if it serves as a blog. Will anyone read it? Do I want anyone to read it? Hey!! You!!! You out there in the pc world......if anyone reads this, will you please let me know you have....please. I still don't know how to blog. Where do I find simple...I said "simple" instructions? I'm not a good reader of directions....I'm a hand's on try the experience person and then write it down in my own words so I will understand the directions. Is there a book out there written for Dummies? Blogging for Dummies! Good title.
Anybody there?

  2. Hi Barb,
    Just wanted to let you know I did read your post. It can be a little overwhelming when you first start a blog, but it will become familiar after a while.
    Thank you for visiting my blog at and leaving a comment. Comments do make you feel like someone is reading! LOL

  3. Hi Barb!

    I'm here! (Joy waves) I read this post! Thank you for visiting my blog yesterday. The one secret to blogging is the more you read and comment on other's posts, the more they follow you back to your own blog to read what you have to say.

    I haven't read any books on blogging. But I ask all the questions I have at my favorite discussion forum, There's a wealth of knowledge over there. May the Lord bless you on your writing journey.

    My goodness, I wasn't aware until this evening when I came to my blog to post a comment that you kind ladies had left very encouraging words for me about my doubts regarding blogging. You are both right about making comments on other's sites that are inviting to visit my blog site. The more I comment, the better I get at feeling more comfortable about blogging and writing in general. I'm finally getting a little brave and actually putting some words on private papers to begin telling a story.'s a start!! Thank you so much for your sharing. It means so much to me.

    Sharing Christ's Love,
