Confession Time

Okay, I admit it. I don't know what I am doing.  This is not something that will come as a surprise to some of the people that know me, as it seems to be a perspective shared by many on me.  But in the sense of blogging, I confess I don't know what I am doing.  I had this problem the last time I started a blog some five or so years ago.  Surfing around other blogs with their extremes of expression guided by the Muses Polemic and Minutae, I struggle to find a niche and wonder what it is that I offer and can say.  Nothing new there, either, but perhaps it's important to really have an idea of what your blog is about?  Perhaps?

It's not that I don't have things to say on various topics and don't think I can't be even a little bit entertaining at times.  It's just that the vast morasses and masses of the blogging community just about have it all covered, veneered and varnished.  My rational side counters with "Ah yes, but they are not you and your prespectives are unique because they are yours", to which my cynical, self-critical side retorts, "Yes, and you think that makes it worthwhile?". 

But then I realised that probably someone else out there in BlogVille, BlogLand has undoubtedly had the same conversation above, posted about it on their blog, and now I am no longer worried or burdened by it because let's face it, it's not worth it.  [what a waste of two paras]. .

On a lighter nots, a comedic situation in Wilkinson's today.  Vic and I both needed to buy glue (me for my aforementioned lost sole - Joy Division anyone? - he for a broken somethingorother) which resulted in a conversation about how it looked quite bad that we were both buying super glue at the same time and that it might raise some eyebrows.  My punchline?  Well, of course it had to be..."But Vic, surely they know that friends stick together".

Anyway, more later perhaps after a quick sojourn to the pub...
