A Storytellers Blog
So, I've had my website for about a year now and on it is this word, or space called BLOG! It's a strange word and I don't know where it comes from but I do know that BLOG has been staring at me with a glint in its eye saying "Come on Douglas! You've paid for me, you've got me, now why don't you use me?" Well there's an offer you don't get every day.
But what to talk about? I have never been one to be stuck for words, in fact quite the opposite, knowing when to shut up has, for me, been a hard learnt lesson at times. But I am a Storyteller not a writer and composing thoughts that you might find interesting is a whole different skill. So how about I start with this.
I am going to make a point of BLOGGING once a week, I could say I would do it more often, and I might, but once a week feels manageable. I am going to try to stay, as they say in education, on task, this isn't a space for me to spill the inner workings of my personal life, if you want to know those things then buy me a drink and call me your friend. No, i would like to try to give you an insight into the working life of a Storyteller, it's an amazing privilege to be able to do the work that I do and I don't take that privilege lightly! It takes time and hard work to become good at anything in life and I am striving to be the best that I can be but I am by no means there yet, so it would be great to share that journey with you.
And finally, I will try to keep you entertained, it would be great to think that you might come back as often as you can to see how things are going. Maybe you might want to drop me a response and we can get to know each other better. Perhaps we might even have met somewhere on the road and you want to share a moment with me, whatever the reason for you reading these BLOGS if there not very interesting then I'm going to lose your ear.
So that's it, my first BLOG, in the bag and no harm done, I will hopefully see you back here next week for the next instalment but until then enjoy and be careful out there.
