More Questions Than Answers

Well. I've thought of having a blog for a long time. I've been an avid journaler for a long time. I've wanted to write a book for even longer. A journal is private. A blog, not. The point of a book is to get the word out about whatever. When I think of a blog, I think, what does someone else care? When I think of a journal, I think, I'm proabably the only one who cares. When I think of a book, I think has my life had enough in it to keep the interest of a stranger, much less have them pay money for it. ??? I'm so stuck. Is it the Holy Spirit nudging me? If so, what's next? If it's just me, what do I do with all that's twirling around in my brain? Graham cooke calls it "Head noise. The soundtrack of our lives" How do you get that out there so others are interested?

what gets people interested is honesty. no polly anna crap. just real life every day.

I think that each of us think that several times. The daily entries are easier, the stories of the kids and such. The heart issues are different. I start them several times before I get them right. Remember, even though others read it, It is yours. your thoughts, your place to think, vent, get thoughts straight or whatever. if they don't like it, they can read somewhere else.
