How does this work exactly???

I'm still a bit confused by this whole blog thing.  I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be trying to lure strangers into reading my ramblings or if people are just supposed to stumble upon me by accident and be wowed by my fascinating (someone PLEASE shoot me in the face if one more freaking stranger tells me how "fascinating" my life is) life?  Am I supposed to come up with intriguing questions to pose?  Should I just post links to my e-books at Kindle and write about my struggles as a self-publishing (because I'm seriously too broke & too lazy to pursue traditional publication with the consistancy and heart that it demands)?  Is this the correct format for heralding my much laughed about fascination with Shemar Moore and Lindt milk chocolate?  Or my odd fascination with anything miniature, oversized, or my fetish for office supplies perhaps?

I have to admit it's nice to have this lovely diary like environment to express things and just throw out things in life that won't fit into the character restrictions of a facebook status, but is that really all a blog is supposed to be?  I know a lot of people who have multiple blogs... one for personal stuff, one for business, one for hobbies, etc., etc., etc., (shall we dance dom dom dom...) but I can't really come up with enough material that I find worthy of sharing for even one blog on a daily or even weekly basis.  Maybe if I had a better understanding of what my purpose was here I would be able to come up with more words to add.

So tell me friends and loved ones (all 3 or 4 of you who read this drivel) what exactly is a blog supposed to be?  What is it that you want to read about in these pages of wit, wisdom, and ridiculousness????  Give me purpose... direction... a row to hoe...

Happy 23rd Birthday today to my handsome, wonderful little boy :)  I love you Marques Alan!!

This weeks statistics:
* Work schedule still sucks, they're cutting hours like crazy!
* Wrestling is over and we have a much needed break before soccer and horse show season begins!
* I'm up to 15 copies of the 2 e-books I have available at and today ordered my proof copies for the print versions of both Saving Alexandria and Guardian of Dreams!  Now to decide if I want to try and do some sort of advertising and promotion for the books or if I'm satisfied with the fact that they're out there.


  1. I'm like you. Not really sure what a blog is all about, but I have one. I use it like a diary. Information I want to keep a record of. Stories I want to share.

    I can't blog everyday (and I won't - I just can't think of that much to write about) and I couldn't imagine owning more than one! But I have fun reading other people's blogs and comment occassionally.

    But my number one priority is writing my novel. It will always come first. Blogging is something I do when I need a little break!

  2. Thanks Stacy, that's pretty much how mine is going to stay I think. I just don't have the time, energy, or material for anything else.
