Okay, so “blogspiration” probably won’t catch on, since I now realize it sounds more like “perspiration” than “inspiration” as I originally intended. Either way, what I was TRYING to say is that I have now inspired someone to start her very own blog.
My amazing, wonderful, thoughtful, passionate, patient, friend (and former college roommate) October has now started a blog. She admitted that after she started reading my blog, she became a little addicted – as we all do – to checking it out on a regular basis. She finally felt compelled to start her own blog where I (and whoever else happens by) can once again glean knowledge from one of the kindest, smartest people I know.
I, myself, was inspired to start a blog after our pastor started his blog and our church family created its own blog. I just couldn’t believe it was so easy. And fun. What I hadn’t expected was to run out of steam after a while. I wrote down all the things – my opinions and feelings on issues – that I had wanted people to KNOW. Things I had been saying for years. Now, I could let everyone know.
Now, of course, I find new topics, but I’m still amazed it only took me five months to say every thing I’ve been obsessed with for 28 years. Thankfully, well, hopefully, I’ve got many writing years in front of me.
I haven’t asked Tob for permission to give out her blog address, so I’ll wait on that, but I will say “congratulations” to her, and I can’t wait to read your thoughts. It’ll be just like college – without the Diet Cokes chilling on that frosty Chicago window sill, that is!
