My First Article

I never really know what I want to say until I sit down on my computer and get down to writing my thoughts down. Perhaps the muses come to me best in this manner. The first few lines are always the hardest-the Mt. Everest I need to climb to get my juices going. Since my siblings have gotten hooked on this habit of blogging, I have been arguing with myself whether I should get into myself or not. A fortnight ago, I just went ahead and did it without really thinking about it. Now I'm committed and there is no turning back. I wonder if all you bloggers out there experienced the same birthing pains I'm going through right now. I never imagined I'd have a hard time of it-me, who always has an opinion about most anything. There are so many things I can write about but, for some reason, I can't get them all sorted out just yet. Perhaps it's just as well. My second post can't be too heavy or I might lose my audience. But at this point, I am just groping. So to all you bloggers out there, please be patient with me. Hopefully, my next post will have a point. In the meantime, I'm just going to enjoy writing about my confusion.

Hello again!

I forgot to say: Welcome to Blogger!!! :).

I can't say that I had the birthing pain when I first started blogging....but I know what you are going through cause I have seen it on other fellow bloggers :). It happens.
What you need to do is relax and let the inspiration take over you :).

I have subscribed to your blog, and you are right: there is no turning back :D!

When I first started blogging a couple of years ago, it was literally an online diary. Everything that was happening to me at work. If I want to kick my boss, I wrote it down. If I want to tell my officemate off, I wrote it down. Hehe...

You'll get the hang of it din, tita (is it ok to call you that?) :)

Have a great week ahead!

I felt it too. I actually had a difficulty thinking of what to write on my first post. Sasha is right, you'll get the hang of it. Ikaw pa eh ang galing mong magsulat ;)

I didn't feel any birthing pain since I had had a blog first before, so I just "moved" it to blogger. It'll get easier and easier the more you write.

Sometimes ideas just come pouring out like flood in the middle of the night...or while I'm cooking...or walking downtown...and the more you read other people's blogs, the more ideas will come, since some posts are bound to make you wonder and think or remember about something in your past...and then your creative juices will be flowing in a more structured way. :-)))

No matter what, the most important thing is HAVE FUN!!! Don't make it an obligation. Just enjoy it! ;-D
