Blogging for me provides me a venue for sharing my creativeness in poetry, prose and fiction writing. However, some continue to harbor negative views about my work. I know that there are those that view blogging as too personal. The negative perceptions are understandable, but it is important that the readers do not take the content of the post personal. I have come to dislike the term blogging, post or entries. I look at my work as commentary and pieces of information, creative writing instead of blogging.
There are no writers that do not use parts of their lives, actions or personal thoughts into their creating of poetry, prose or fiction writing. We look at people we meet as potential characters in our stories. We look at life situations in the news around the world as possible material to use in our poetry.
It is unfortunate that there are those that believe the “blogger” has some deep dark desire to live what we create. It is simply not true. It is not necessarily true that we are depressed, thinking of suicide if we write of such subjects. If readers know me personally, they should not take that my creation is about them, take nothing personal about post.
I NEVER, LET ME REPEAT THAT, I NEVER…post anything that is created from personal relationships, relatives or even known, I would never create and post anything that is about anyone personal life accept my own.
When I receive advice on my need to see a Doctor due to my thoughts embedded within my writing, or that I have a lot to live for and should not be contemplating suicide. I appreciate you caring, it is just, fiction, creation.
Creativeness in blogging is an effective and resourceful way to add dynamic view to our work. Blogging is another way to attract and engage with people. Blogging enables the blogger to create, distribute “owned” content. The blogger then may decide to further “advertise” their work by sharing on Face book, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Twitter, etc, sharing is a digital tap on the shoulder for others to explore the “Blog”.
So, if you are reading the content of my blog be assured that I am not creating something directed at you personally. I am not in need of a psychiatrist (well maybe), and I am not creating dark works because I am suicidal. I love hearing from all of you, the comments are a source of joy for me. Please come back often, and I enjoy visiting my followers. My followers are special; they are “My People”.
Have a great week.
