Postable Post

I have had this blog up and running for two days.  Only, no posts.  I do not know what it is about having a “blog” that scares me.  Well, I do know, it is the idea of my words typed and then shot out into the universe for anyone to read.  I am a journal keeper, so you would think that I would feel comfortable with a virtual journal, but so far I am not.  Therefore, I am just sticking this post out there, hoping that it will inspire me to blog more about my life.  I think this is a good month to start a blog, as it is Down syndrome Awareness month, and I would love for people to become a little more tolerant, a little more aware of others that are different than themselves, maybe even through my musings here.

    Thanks, Jennifer! I can’t believe you found me…I didn’t really put the word out yet. Is it OK that I linked to your blog? I’ll write soon.

    I’m so glad you have a blog! I was just thinking about you yesterday and thought “I bet Gillian would have a great blog.” Yay!

    Now I have to start putting more in my blog, I have the same fear of putting my words out there for all to see, sometimes my thoughts get scary and sometimes they get aggressive, and they are always a bit confused, so I worry about what I would put out there, but in the end, It’s worth it when I just get it out. So, yeah blogging is scary for others too, even people like me who love to hear themselves speak! You’re not alone!

    Wow, Gill I loved reading this. I am truly jealous of the way you express yourself and I guess we can attribute that to your years of journaling. Which I always thought was dumb. (until now) As my kids get older I can look back and really see that balloon and where it takes its child as it gets older. Thanks!

    Good to see you here, Jerry. Thanks for checking my new blog out! See you tonight!

    Amy, your comment made me laugh! I can always count on you for that! Thanks for reading.
