Alone but not lonely, ‘cos I’m with myself,
Just as happy as when I meet up with someone else.
With paper and pen, and some words – not the best,
Words sometimes unclear or imperfect – the way I talk to my friends.
But blogging is different – I need to take care,
Take another look at what I’ve written, so I convey what was meant.
Blogging takes time – it’s write, then re-word.
And I need to be disciplined, and schedule my writing, so I get time for the rest of my world.
A blog post is words unaccompanied by voice and tone,
And bloggers need to be careful, as their words stand alone.
Alone, but not lonely as I have a pen and some paper.
I’ll write, then reword it. And post a little later.
