Learning to Blog: Blame it on Cheryl Strayed

According to a recent Facebook post (so you know it has to be true),  Wild author Cheryl Strayed  said that “it’s better to write a book that kind of sucks than to write no book at all, as you wait around to magically become Faulkner.  No one is going to write your book for you..”

I believe the same can be said for a blog.  This blog is my “book,”  my journey, my stories about my travels, with some tips for others who may be interested in exploring more of the world.

In the beginning, I’m guessing it will kind of suck.  It’s just the way things are when you are off on a new adventure that’s a bit out of your comfort zone.  It will never be Faulkner – that’s not my goal, and he never blogged anyway.   But if I can sometimes bring a smile, then it’s not a waste of time.   And if it’s crappy – then blame Cheryl Strayed, because she’s the one that said to go ahead and embrace the mediocrity.
