Yes, I admit it, I'm a Blogophobe. So what is blogophobia? Simply, it is the fear of Blogs, pretty obvious, huh. So why be scared of blogs? Well I'll start with the main reason - what to blog about. I could start off just talking about myself but that would get boring for both myself and the world at large, very quickly. Plus, I'm not an Opera Singer - MEMEME (requisite joke). I realize that I do have to divulge some information about me, my life, my craft but as to day today stuff well, that's just filler really isn't it?
Another reason for being a blogophobe is failure. There I said it, the big 'F'. No one wants to fail in life. Sure we can't all be Bill Gates and come up with some incredibly successful idea and most of us are comfortable with that. It would be nice though to be happy with our jobs, lives, relationships, at least happy enough to be able to say "yeah, this is good". So you start a blog with the best intentions and 2 people read it, not very encouraging. To be honest I'm still not sure exactly how this whole blog thing works so it will take time for me to get up to speed. I know that sportspeople and movie stars have them and I can see why people might be interested in reading those. Then you have your political or Current Events blogs which can also be interesting reading.
So how can I not be a blog failure? Well, I guess there are no guarantees in life so only time will tell. All I can do is blog about things I know and enjoy and hope you, the reader, find them enjoyable as well. Obviously the main subject would be my jewelry designs and then expand on that. Seeing as I have other interests too I may throw in the odd blog about music or sports.
I now have taken my first big step towards curing my blogophobia and if I can do it, anyone can. I just hope my fear doesn't go all the way to the other end of the spectrum and turn into obsession. Wait, that would actually be another reason for being a Blogophobe. What if I like it so much that I can longer function without my blog. I guess that is just the chance I will have to take.
