I am proud of the fact that I have never started off a post with any variant of the words;
I don’t really have much to say…
Whenever I am scrolling down the WordPress blog rolls of ‘humor, ‘writing’, or ‘art’, as I tend to do, just looking for something interesting, I always stumble on posts which begin with the author telling us that they have nothing interesting or important to say. I find this honesty touching.
Often these posts end up being charming, funny, or thought-provoking, despite beginning with what would seem a warning to the contrary.
When you first begin a blog here on WordPress, there is a little instructional paragraph. In it, they caution new bloggers to be sure that they are going to be able generate enough content. In other words; If you don’t have very much to say, maybe you don’t really need a blog. Maybe Twitter is more your style.
Or maybe I am looking at this the wrong way. It wouldn’t be the first time that has happened. Maybe some people start off by saying that they have nothing to say as a challenge to themselves. Maybe this is how some of you get those creative juices flowing.
As I read back over this post, just checking for poorly constructed sentences, it occurs to me that perhaps I didn’t really have that much to say in this particular case. Which strikes me as a rather amusing irony.
So, never mind. Just forget I didn’t say anything.
