Blogging Identity

One of the things I’ve learned when it comes to defining my own “writing identity” is that I am not the best judge. But I can always try and explain it.

Looking over my posts (few as they may be) I think my identity for this blog is a journal of sorts. Kind of a place where I can ramble on without having to see how much I’m annoying people. I don’t talk all that much to people I don’t know, and when I do talk, I tend to go on and on (maybe it’s a defense mechanism – I talk a lot so people won’t talk to me).

I also have a really bad habit to try and get ALL of the facts whenever I tell a story, which leads to me talking longer than I should and people losing interest very quickly. If people get bored on my blog, they can just close out of the post and I don’t have to deal with the gut sinking feeling of being ignored!  \(^.^)/

To wrap everything up, I think my blog qualifies as a journal more than anything else – somewhere to get my ideas out and talk about things in a way where I don’t have to physically talk about them. It might develop into a place where I publish prompts I’ve picked up from the internet or some work from other classes that I’d want to share.

We’ll see.
