Happy one month of blogging to me!

In celebration. I wrote two new posts.  This one makes three.  But, as usual, I did not publish either of the other two.  They're still in the manufacturing process.  Chances are good that, at publication, they will not even closely resemble the posts they are now.

That's an interesting thing about blogging.  It refines my writing style, and by extension my thinking style.  I mentioned before that I use a thesaurus fairly frequently.  I also have to write out all of my thoughts, then sift through them for irrelevancies.  I then boil them down to the basics because I tend to go on a little (or a lot) too long.  Once I even ended up with two posts instead of one.

After only a month, however, I find myself resorting to the thesaurus less frequently.  It's also easier to spot a bunny trail before I've typed the entire thing out.

Hopefully this will translate itself into my day-to-day living.  I've found that my online forum life has changed my real-life conversation and comportment for the better, making me more expressive and compassionate.  It would be nice to be articulate and relevant in person, as well!


  1. Sounds like you've had some positive outcomes so far! Good for you! My blog IS a bunny trail. A twisted trail.

  2. Susan, your blog is wonderful! I love it when it's funny, and I love it when it's reflective. I hope one day you'll write a book. :)

  3. What's wrong with a bunny trail? :p

  4. Hi Elizabeth! I love a good bunny trail, but mine are rarely good. :)
