What to Blog When You Are Blogging

The blogging guide that reassuringly answers the concerns of bloggers to be from the planning stage through postblogging, in a clear, comprehensive format.

Chapter 1: Are you a blogger?
You can have all the signs and symptoms of being blogged but still not be a blogger. One of the classic symptoms of this condition is visiting all your friends and family's blogspots but still not have one of your own.
What you may be feeling during this stage: The pressure from the afore mentioned friends and family to "get your own blog". It's cool and fun they say. Do not be concerned. You will have a blog in your own time and place. You will know when that quiet moment comes as you sit down at the computer after calling in sick to work and you realize all of your favorite websites are getting old and you conquered Civ III more times than you can count and you ask yourself, "What ELSE can I do on the computer?" When that moment arrives you will know. "I will start a blog!"

Chapter 2: What you may be concerned about.
You may be concerned about what other people will think of your brand new blog spot. Since this is a highly personal and individualized extension of your own inner most self, what others opinions are of it may cause you to be concerned. Since the only people who are looking at your Blog are people who already love and admire your inner most self, they will love and admire your Blog. So do not be concerned. They already know all your faults and bad habits so a Blog will not surprise them. And if it does, they will love you all the more and keep coming back for more surprises.
