origin_5084216310Todays Daily Prompt: When you started your blog, did you set any goals? Have you achieved them? Have they changed at all?

Nope, no goals.  I’ve said before that my blog is my friend.  I’m not all that sociable and people find me to be standoff-ish, snotty, full of myself…etc, which I am not really.   I am quiet, don’t talk much and think a lot, but as I said this is misread.

The wonder of blogging is that we can read the thoughts going on inside other people’s heads, without making judgements as one does before actually getting to know an individual.  In real life we are already making our decisions from what we see rather than what is inside.

I have no actual goals other than having people to interact with; even that does not always work out. 😦  I don’t care for becoming Freshly Pressed, it is not a desire, yet I can understand why people would want to be FP’d though, especially if they are writers or poets; I am neither.  I write the stuff I can’t make sense of, I write the stuff that makes me happy and sad, I also write about my nemesis – depression.

I like reading other blogs, especially those written from the heart… I love my bloggy friends; very much.

  1. I’m with you on the quiet side being misunderstood or mistaken for a purposeful aloof or cold aura, when in reality I’m usually just feeling out of place and looking for a way to run away from the crowd 🙂

  4. I am quite opposite in blogging and personality from your description of you. I am talkative and I have many blogging goals.
    I face the same judgement – snotty, show-off, full of herself. So I think people just tend to define everyone the way they want to.
    I have followed your blog since Dec 2012, you really treat it like a friend. I just can’t do it no matter how hard i try. I have this ‘Oh-my-god-this-is-a-public-platform’ feeling so I contain myself from treating it like a true friend.
    I love my bloggy friends too!
    Sorry for the looooooong comment

    • Don’t apologise for the long comment, I love it when people share more about themselves. Labelling just doesn’t make sense does it? As for the blogging, I reckon this is why blogs are so interesting, because we are all so different. Thanks for following, Ritu, I appreciate it 🙂

      • I think blogs are people virtually personified!
        My pleasure, I was not very active in the recent past but I love reading your blog *hugs*

  6. and we love you back… I have no goals but to enjoy what I’m doing and if that ever leaves me I’d stop… but people like you keep me coming back and enjoying the experience of blogging… thank you for being you…

  7. Well the fact of the matter is that there are those like me who like to have things defined. But from inside we always know there are no static goals as such. As good as not having any 🙂 Keep it up.

  10. I enjoyed this post. There was one thing with which I do take issue. You said you aren’t a writer. I respectfully disagree, and I offer as proof the nearly 50,000 (FIFTY THOUSAND!!!) hits your writing has inspired, the many followers (I don’t see a follower count but I’m a follower and I wouldn’t be surprised if there aren’t a LOT more), and 34 (and counting!) “Likes” so far of this post alone. You ARE a writer, my friend, and based on how many people take time out of their day to read what you write, you are an undeniably good one.

  14. It’s pretty well how I feel about blogging too…I just write what I want and feel and those that get me…get me! I find that I have more friends than ever because I too was (not so much anymore but still somewhat) quiet and seeming to be withdrawn and too serious for some.
    And I had the same nemesis as you also for many years off and on through my adult years.
    I didn’t even know what Freshly Pressed was for many months after starting… Sometimes I’ll take a look to see what kind of thing is chosen and some I don’t get….but c’est la vie…

  17. It’s so recognizable what you wrote about yourself. People always judge you from the outside. They thought I behaved high and mighty, instead I was shy and afraid, not a talker but a dreamer. Hard to handle for others, but enough for me. I like you the way you are. Keep on being yourself, that makes the different! 🙂

  18. I began my blog with the purpose of writing about epilepsy and autism, but I didn’t want it to become like one of those dry and dusty old tomes that sit on the proverbial bookshelf unloved for being too technical and dull. So I began to inject some humour into my various accidents and epilepsy-related mishaps.

    However, my blog had other ideas; it’s grown and mutated all by itself. It’s become a mix of medical stuff, humour and creative writing – and let’s not forget that Doctor Who wasn’t slow in creeping in to my writings!

    I enjoy the social angle just as much as I enjoy finding good writers to promote and learn from. I’m very glad that I met you, because you write from the heart and it shows x

  19. I do it for precisely the same reasons as you and it keeps me ALIVE! I also love my fellow Bloggers!
