Accountability

“If a man does not make new acquaintance as he advances through life, he will soon find himself left alone. A man, Sir, should keep his friendship in constant repair.”
– Samuel Johnson (1709 – 1784) British lexiographer.

 

I was reading an article about accountability on Freshly Pressed (yes, that same Freshly Pressed that still eludes me :() this morning, and it struck me. I should be more accountable.

I have … give me a minute while I go check … ah yes, 81 followers friends (wait, is that right? Damn. That’s more than I expected). That’s 81 people who think that I have something worth reading. 81 people who expect a new post often (not everyday), but not once a month either :). 81 people who wish to be on the path to enlightenment (no, I’m joking, but I had to throw that one in :D)

So, it’s been decided. I will post something every Tuesday and Thursday. I’ve marked my digital calendar. To all my friends (I don’t fancy the term followers), I thank you for putting up with what appears to be a dormant blog!

Thank YOU! YOU get me out of bed in the mornings … well technically it’s that damn alarm … but after a cold shower, YOU are the ones that bring me … oh darn. I think I’m messing up what I thought would be a great speech.

The point is, I APPRECIATE YOU ALL πŸ™‚

Namaste (The light within me salutes the light within you) <–picked that up from Yoga πŸ˜€

Why Blog?

Blogging use to be my release (not sexual), but stress, but it is so much more now. It gives me a sense of purpose in this 7billion population world that we occupy, however small it may be. Whether it be, humor, inspirational, drama or educational.

I am especially interested in the people that I’m exposed to through blogging that I would have otherwise not have met. Some blogs take me to other parts of the world (e.g. London). Others have me laughing my ass off on the floor. Some offer a different but insightful perspective on a particular topic. Others have some really deep shit πŸ™‚

There are some really interesting people in this world and I think that’s the main reason why there are so many bloggers around. It’s all about the community and potential friends!

I recently met this crazy ass bipolar chick. Before I thought bipolar people were ones to be avoided because they are unpredictable! We’ve shared several comments and I’ve come to realize that she’s as normal as you and I πŸ™‚ That’s the thing about blogging – It enlightens πŸ™‚

Why do you blog?
