Am I A Blogger?

It was one year and nine days ago that I posted my first comment on a blog. It was a corporation's blog, so I didn't feel as cheesy.

My plan was to say (rant) what I had to say and then move on with my life. Well, that was the plan. The reality is that I got sucked in to the blog world.

So much so, that last March, I was flown to Prague by that corporation to be part of a panel discussion on blogging and how it affects the reputation of a company.

They actually thought I had something worth contributing to their sixty or so P.R. people from around the world.

Is that crazy, or what?


Anyway, that was over three months ago. And at that time, I made it clear that I had absolutely no desire to have my own blog, like some of the other panelists had. That I would stick to commenting on other people's blogs.

I mean, why? Why blog? What's the point?

How much (or how little) do I share of my life when I know the whole universe can access my little world here?

Bi-zarre if you ask me.

Well, let's see where this all takes me...

Hi Bridgett! Now I'm tempted again to see if there is still time to sign up for the blogging class from my local community education program. I never thought that you would take the leap. Congratulations on your new blog, and thank you for the invitation.

Welcome to the blogosphere "officially," Bridgett. Best advice I can give: if anybody commenter throws you a lemon, don't be afraid to thow 'em back once in a while. Now go get 'em :)

Why would expressing your First Amendment right make you feel "cheezy"? Many people have endured many hardships and died to protect that right.

Why wouldn't you think your input on blogging and how it affects the repuation of Amway be valued?

There are many reasons to blog. For me, it is to bring attention to the truth regarding the business model of the Amway business.

Welcome to the rocking world of blogdom Bridgett. Like all the other blogger panelists said, your "voice" is one that needs to be heard. I hope others come to hear what you've got to say! (I've favorited you!!)

Thanks for visiting. And thank you for your support through the transformation.

Congrats on your blog. No doubt about it. You are a blogger. I am certain of that.
