In my quest for a meaningful life, I have embraced the mixed media artist persona. That being said, the groups I have joined are full of “members who blog.” (Is this the new “Ladies who lunch?”) Every few times I post a message to my group, I am asked “Do you have a blog?” That question has always made me wonder “Why do you ask?” Am I so interesting that you want to hear more from me? Or is it that you wish I would quit taking up space on a message board? The answer lies probably somewhere in between.
So I have toyed with the idea of starting a blog, weighing the pros and cons. Pro – It gives me a space to display my art. Con – I will need to post frequently to keep it relavant. Pro – Blogging may help me to immortilize my thoughts. Con – Do I really want to immortalize my thoughts? Pro – My brain is so full, I need a little space to organize my ideas. Con – My brain is so full, there is no telling what will come out. In the end, the need to create outweighs all. Therefore, I must blog.
