If I know how to blog, why don't I do it?

I have had a weblog for a long long time--well, only for a little more than a year now. I only wrote about fifty entries. I feel that I should have way more than that. What can I say, I am a traditional girl. What I see in print is what I like. Reading the newspaper is comforting to me, reading a blog seems like work to me. I have to admit that I enjoy writing in my blog though. I have always enjoyed writing, and it is interesting to see it on a webpage. I also want to admit that reading Julie Young's entry on tips and Amanda's update was not of help to me, but could be of help to a newbie.

I already knew the basics of blogging. I, for one, do not write swear words in my blog. When I am furious, I will still try to be a nice girl. I never once used the word homework--for my first entry I may have, so don't quote me on this (I was just learning at that time)--even though I use my weblog for mainly academics. I try not to be boring, but what can I say, I live a pretty boring life. If it's not boring, then I'm just too busy to write about my excitement (I do find myself in the Setonian office for many (many, many) hours during production week).

I wish I could keep up-to-date with my blog, but I tend to get sidetracked. I used to keep journals when I was younger, but after about a week or so, I started to skip some days, then skip more days, and more days, etc. until I comepletely stopped. I tried to do it again, but my journal just seems to turn into a poem handbook or something. I can't seem to write about my life. If I do, it turns into a poem. I guess a poem is better than nothing.

Maybe I will start keeping up-to-date with this blog, but I don't want to promise anything. I want to say congratulations to all of those who do keep it up to date, especially Amanda (the blog feen). It is very hard work (or so I feel) to keep this alive, and all of you are doing a great job at it.

That would be cool to have a poetic life. Mine ends up sounding like some comedy show script.
