Into the Unknown

How does one start writing their first post? You know the one...the one that set forth into motion the unheralded greatness. The obvious answer is by opening your blog account, create new post and type away. Well, that's easier said than done for me. I'm sitting here desperately trying to post the most awesome, awe inspiring, press stopping blog post of all times. But then I thought to myself, 'Self, who the hell is gonna care anyways?'.

I mean really...who ever reads someones first post and thinks OMG? Your favorite author had to start somewhere right? He or she just didn't have their first attempt at literary greatness automatically become a bestseller. They had to start from the basics and evolve into a novelist worthy of nobility.

Anticipation of a daily bloggers following (hmm), failure, mediocrity, grammar/spelling errors (Ha, that's a given with me), self-satisfaction, finding time, finding stories to blog, etc... So much anticipation will cause my blood pressure to rise. All the stress associated with blogging is unbelievable. But then again, its all undue stress caused by venturing into the unknown.
