As I am trying to follow each step of this #blobbing101 adventure, today is about creating a Title and tagline. Since I have the title of my blog I like my first thoughts were to SKIP today’s assignment. But if I recall correctly part of this little process is to WRITE, not necessarily with the intent of producing something AWESOME and interesting. So I scrolled down the page and found another topic option to be to EXPLAIN why I like my title and tagline. Well that sounds right up my alley, I LOVE to explain things; I mean it is kind of my job in real life.
A few moments ago, say 3 years, I was in the throws of life when I found people commenting that I should write a book. Whether it was about all my stories, that I tell on a regular basis, or about how to learn how to learn, or the weight loss journey I was in the middle, it really didn’t matter because the theme was WRITE. The more I contemplated and thought and talked about these mentionings I do believe someone who blogs on a regular basis, mentioned, “You should start a blog.” UH that would be a NO. And then fast forward to various moments of thinking and wondering. So there I was dialing the phone and blurted out, “So how do I start This Silly Blog Thing?” And after scheduling a time to discuss how all the details around here work, he mentioned that I needed to pick a title. I felt a certain amount of pride in my clever little witty blurt, so it became my title.
The tagline seemed to take some development. Trying to find, in a way, a mission statement of sorts. Wanting to be as honest and forthright to any potential readers that would wander by; I tried to provide an overview of sorts. So much of the things that seem to occupy my brain revolve around: the emotions I am feeling or trying not to feel; my life long war with food, exercise, and this silly thing called physical health; and the thing I desire the most in life: a real relationship with God, my friends, and (one day) a significant other (preferably real man).
So as I try to live life out in the real world, I will be attempting to catalog it here in whatever method and fashion it falls onto the page. No matter what the topic of the hour or day, (especially those days I feel SILLY, dorky, boring, random, confused, or unimportant) I will be faithful to post something. Even if it is from the archives of life because Heaven knows I can Tell a few stories.
PS. I do believe the last few times I began blogging I was trying too hard to make it into something. I was constantly caught up in the aspect of WHAT IS THE POINT? WHO IS MY AUDIENCE? HOW WILL THIS WORK TOGETHER TOWARDS MY GOALS? (What goals?) So this time I am just writing. I guess those therapy sessions to work on my perfectionistic personality disorder are really paying off.
