BLOGGING ABOUT BLOGGING
I did a post awhile back about when the relationship is about the relationship – that stage after two people have become involved when the majority of all conversations revolve around the state of the relationship. It is during this period that one finds out if the actual relationship has what it takes to get to the next step, as inevitably one of of the two, (usually the man in hetrosexual unions) figures out if he in fact cares enough to keep it going as men don’t love to talk about the state of a relationship.
Well, what happens when the blogger starts talking about the blog? I fear the same thing. People decide if they can still bare to hang in there with blogger while they ramble on about their relationship to the blog. The blog becomes about the blog. Yawn.
But this week I have a predicament as I must turn in the edit on my manuscript to my book by Thursday. Therefore any time spent punching keys that turn into words and hopefully a version of prose must be for that purpose. I also have several people at my publishers who read this blog and they will be wondering how can she be churning out a thousand words on “This Weekend in Sag Harbor” when she should be finishing her book. And you can’t blame them -so those of you from Harper Collins I’m winding this down here.
The problem is I’ve become a blogging fool, a blogaholic, a blogaddict. And when I miss more than a day there are people who email me wondering if I’m alright, where I am?
So to keep the blogdorphins pumping through my veins and so I don’t drop the ball on this site completely until Friday I will be video and photo blogging until then.
Today’s video is a minute and half and was done last week in LA by my friend Deb Eckerling. She has a great site Writeonoline.com.
She got me talking about my feelings about writing and blogging. That was hard for her to do! I was talking about my relationship with my blog.
I suppose at this point many people will decide if we all still have a relationship or a blog or a relationship with the blog. Well, that gave me enough of a fix until tomorrow. Thanks for listening. And when you said ” Was I OK?” was that because you cared or you were feeling guilty about something? If you read this only one day a week do you really like the blog or doing it out of loyalty and while we’re on the topic of loyalty, how many blogs do you actually read? Does that mean we’re not exclusive here? Do you want to read other blogs but don’t want to hurt my feelings and admit it? Do you care more about them than me? I know it’s a little early to ask but how do you feel about baby blogs?
