Blogging about Blogging

I haven't been blogging very long, only just a few months. In the months that I have been blogging I've made some observations.

I write my blog through This site offers a much better blog composing system than It is pretty easy for me to get my blog to do what I want it to do. I just have a few little problems.

First, will crash on occasion without notice. That is a problem for me. What if I am writing my life story and all of the sudden I can't save or publish my blog? That's when I have to copy and paste it into a word document. Ok, so it is not that big of a deal, easily worked around.

Secondly, not really a problem, more of a funny observation. I am addicted to spell check. I do it all the time. The spell checker on is great, it catches all kinds of stuff I don't know how to spell correctly. But, there is one word it keeps telling me that I am spelling wrong. Frankly, has no business telling me that the word "blog" is not a word.

"What 'blogging' isn't a word. Well fine, that must make blogger not a word. You stupid web site. I hate you. No wait, come back I didn't mean it."

Imaginary Audience

If you have read my blog at all you know that I write like I am talking to a large audience. It is not that I have a large group of people read my blog regularly, I just pretend that a lot of people like to read my blog. I imagine them being so disappointed on the days I don't update it. I mean they are so faithful, they write me imaginary e-mails saying "Hey, where is my daily dose of sarcasm and amazing humor."

Then I have to write them back saying "I'm sorry, I find it hard to sit down and write something new everyday, but check back tomorrow."

That's when I get e-mails from people saying "Who are you? I don't read your dumpy blog please stop send me messages like I do."

Yes, I enjoy having so many adoring imaginary readers.
