Gosh, why do I have so much anxiety about blogging? I think some of my angst is because I read so many great blogs and I am in awe of how some people can make the most common conversation interesting. Then there are those whose words offer great inspiration and you're just all sobby at the end of the read. Still others are just wonderful givers. They offer great links to great places on the web and you just feel like your learned your "one new thing" for the day after reading their entry. So refreshing when that happens! Then there is me, just me with my little dog Isabel. We don't have a glamorous life, we don't have some great inspirational story to offer, we just live in this little town in the mountains of western Maryland, but yet I had this feeling of needing to connect with others who love their dogs (or cats or whatever animal suits them) to a point that I create a blog for my beloved pet. So yeah, back to my point. I'm nervous about my new blog. And I'll even admit that I have visited my blog every day for the last three days without writing one new entry. Perhaps facing my fear by stating it to whoever stumbles here will help me move further from my anxiety closer to just writing about what is on my (or Isabel's) mind at the time and not worry that I might say something dumb out loud for everyone to read. Thanks for listening, I feel much better already!
