Blog Virgin - Barry’s Foray into Blogging

Sunday, November 23rd, 2008

I’m about to lose my virginity–to blogging. It was a long time coming, so to speak. I held out and wouldn’t give myself over to the blogosphere. But why? Fear, I guess.  Fear of the sphere.

Why should I be afraid? Hundreds of thousands blog; many do so every day. And maybe that’s the problem: too much drivel on a daily basis.  Serious bloggers told me, “Just put something out there. Don’t worry about it.”

Are you kidding? Worrying is one of the things I do best, ala Woody Allen and Larry David, yet without their success. I can’t help myself. It’s just my nature and what a mother she is.  But here’s the deal: what I’m really trying to guard against is my blog becoming a…a…BLAH-g. You know the ones. People who blather on, detailing the minutiae of their everyday lives.

“I’m having a bowl of cereal now.” Blah! “I’m getting my haircut now.” Blah! “I’m taking Sally to piano lessons now.” Blah!

Blah, blah, blah-g.

Put it out there, they say. Don’t worry about it, they say. Just do it, Nike says. Hit the damn publish button already!

Alright, alright. Ready or not world, here comes Barry.
