My name is Janis,
and I am a Blogger.
I thought about giving it up for lent. One year, my daughter gave up her MySpace for lent and although very proud of her, I did see her suffer. If I gave this up, I think I would go nuts.
It has become such a branch of me and a release of feelings. My followers/readers understand. I am up one day, down another. I write about funny stuff, then morose stuff. What ever is in my head. I try to stay positive, but sometimes the sad stuff holds me down & I just got to get it out.
I am addicted to reading and commenting too. I would rather read Blogs than a magazine or book (I know that is scary, I still love books, but a quick blog entry just takes a few minutes). I have found so many "friends" across the globe that are just like me! I am not crazy, just like so many others,although maybe we are all crazy. Regardless, seeing how others handle things and getting comments makes me feel validation. Makes me happy.
One more thing that I am getting addicted to with the blog~ gadgets. I keep adding stuff. The playlist, the photo album and my latest is the cool MapLoco at the bottom of my page. The map shows where people have come to visit my blog. But the really cool part is I can log in and actually see where people are from. I have had visits from Spain, Philippines, United Kingdom, Australia, Germany (Hi Michelle!), and all over the United States! I am amazed! Am I really that interesting? I have gotten on some of these folks blogs when they leave me a comment of follow me then I can visit them too. I am tickled to feel a friendship with some of you.
Give up my Blog for a month? Nah... Maybe I will stick with candy (also hard for me!).
