You Can Do It!!!

So I've tried this whole blogging thing before and I've been an utter failure at it. I guess there are a few reasons for this:

1. I lack the passion to be a successful blogger
One of the reasons I decided to try this again is because I spent the last few minutes reading some other people's blogs. Obviously I think, "if people like me will read their crap, then there has to be people interested in reading my crap." I mean, I believe I have an interesting life and people could actually be interested in what I think. But honestly, I'm pretty freaking lazy.

2. I don't type well
I never took it in school so I practice this morphed form of hunt and peck. For me to get my thoughts out takes more time than it does for others. By the way, if anyone knows of a good community education program that teaches typing, sign me up.

3. I obsess over the words I use when I write
Being married to an editor, I'm always trying to impress her with my mastery of the English language. I'll write and rewrite meaningless sentences just so I can sound better.

4. My job constrains what I can say
I'm a minister at a pretty conservative church. A lot of blogs I read have controversial thoughts and an occasional curse word- and I doubt you'll ever see either here. It's a dangerous tight-rope to walk trying to be edgy and authentic while at the same time respectful. And I sometimes have ear problems, so my balance isn't the best.

Nevertheless, I'm going to give it one more shot. You'll have to be a little patient with me as a maneuver around, but I'll try to make it worth it.
