(to quote a modern day Shakespeare)…..
Words don’t come naturally to me to be honest – I’m a photographer – not a writer (but I guess Shakespeare wouldn’t have said that bit though eh?!).
So I’m sitting here ‘wondering’ why I feel I should blog…. This is the second post in a week – so I guess I didn’t ‘wonder’ about it too long, did I!
And I see I am not alone in my ‘wondering’ – there seem to be a few blogs out there from people asking the same questions….
“Am I doing it right?”, “Am I saying too much, or not enough?”, “Is it in the right tone?”, “Are my blogs interesting enough?”… and yay …the BIG question “Will anybody read my blog?”
…… Pretty much the same thoughts are running around in my head!
And then there’s even more ‘wondering’ …. even if anybody actually reads it – will they comment on it? Will I get any feedback? Or am I just talking to myself?
I talk to myself a lot actually – so no change there then I suspect!
So I’m going to bite the bullet – give it a go ….and see where it takes me – can’t do any harm…. (can it?)
But before I do …. can I just ask other bloggers out there in the blogosphere three things:-
• “How do you do it right, how much should I say, what sort of tone should I use?”
• “Has anybody read this blog? Do you know that I even exist?”
• “Who will be the first to comment on my blog?”
I’m feeling a bit like Ripley in Alien – you know, the scene at the end ….
Ripley: Final report of the commercial starship Nostromo, third officer reporting. The other members of the crew, Kane, Lambert, Parker, Brett, Ash and Captain Dallas, are dead. Cargo and ship destroyed. I should reach the frontier in about six weeks. With a little luck, the network will pick me up. This is Ripley, last survivor of the Nostromo, signing off.

Ripley: Come on, cat.
So ….I’m just asking “Is there anybody out there?”
This is Alison ….. blogging from Alison Spedding Photography …signing off.
