To Blog or Not To Blog

Atlantic City, NJ: July, 2009

Don't think, do

I am more than aware that I am never any good with keeping up a blog.  Even a photoblog. I’m  just not.  Maybe it’s because I like to be the observer.  I like to be the person getting lost in the other person’s life. I like to tell the story, not be it.

I don’t even post photos on facebook.

However,  I also know that’s hypocritical.  Because to tell a story, you are immediately placed into it… and by sharing a story, its often your own voice which can be heard the loudest.

So maybe I am simply bad at blogs because it means putting myself out there and allowing for the judgement of others, or maybe I am bad at blogs because I don’t think in written English, but rather in a tangled web of ellipses, misspelled words, and tangents……or  more likely than not…maybe I am bad at blogs because I often procrastinate and am better at doing nothing when there is something I should be doing.

Thus, no promises. And most likely few complete sentences.

After all:
