Blogging

I have always enjoyed writing...not that I am a great writer, but I like the process.  I like forming the words, experimenting with different pens and pencils, and checking out the various papers.  I love to go to Office Depot and just look around.  I am an office supply geek.  Robyn thinks I am nuts.  I get excited over different styles of pens, a new color of Sharpie, and fancy file systems.  

Blogging doesn't allow me to use those types of materials, but it has its own form of creativity that I enjoy just as much.  I love reading blogs.  I enjoy the way the owners use color, how they use the space on the "page" and how they tell so much about themselves when looking at the visual images shown.  The best part of a blog is what it says.  Blogging allows us to tell the world a little about ourselves in a manner that is curiously public and private at the same time.  What I say in a blog is out there for anyone to read, but it only a small part of the whole that is me.  It is that single point that makes blogging so fascinating.

There is something really fulfilling about blogging, isn't there? I never really thought I would enjoy it as much as I do.

There is something very fulfilling about blogging about office supplies if you ask me. :)
