Truthful Tuesday 9-8-2020

Frank is our host and here’s his thought provoking question today:

Why did you start blogging, and is your reason for blogging still the same as when you started, or has it changed?

I started blogging for a few reasons. The first was because when my husband passed away I thought I would somehow have tons of extra time. Another reason is because I needed an outlet, and not just a friend to “bitch” to or talk to, just a way to express myself. I actually loved the idea of people commenting and all that, so I had other opinions, but without the stress or obligation, I guess you could say, to respond or give a reason for what I had written.

I am not sure I can say that my reasons have changed per say, but I do blog now for additional reasons. One of those is the connection I have with people who have similar interests and ideas and another is to improve my writing. I find all the challenges and input from bloggers has helped me develop a stronger voice.

  1. I started my first blog because I just wanted to get my thoughts out there and see how people reacted. A few people actually reacted.

    I started DLTDGB because I felt like I had a story to share. A lot of my attempts at writing fiction before have been based on my own experiences or my own past, so I decided to attempt just going all the way and fictionalizing my entire college experience into a serial, an episodic continuing story. And I have to admit that part of my inspiration was the TV show The Goldbergs… haha… if Adam F. Goldberg can create a fictional universe based on his childhood and family and friends, I can do something like that too. Adam and I are the same age in real life, but my best memories happened a little later, when I was already out of high school.

      1. It’s still on (although I don’t know COVID has affected production for the upcoming season 8). I always tell people it’s a show about growing up in the 80s with a crazy family and an overbearing mother… that was my life.
