Living My Childhood Dream

IMG_6682.JPG

As a child, I loved to read books and hang out at the library.  I dreamed of becoming a writer.  However, deep down I never believed it was possible.

I was in my 30’s when I started my first blog and later self-published my first book.

I may never be famous or end up on any best seller list.  That doesn’t matter to me.  I am a writer.  I fulfilled my childhood dream and that’s what really matters.

Rude Comments

I have a question for my blogger friends.  Have you ever gotten rude comments on one of  your blog posts?  If so, did you respond or just ignore it?

I’ve had a few on my blog.  For example, I have been called an idiot and I was told my blog is full of useless drivel.

I just ignore such comments.  If the person had some constructive criticism, then I would pay attention.  However, saying mean things to people while hiding behind a computer screen is something a coward would do and it has no effect on me.

Blogger Beware

As a blogger, I have managed to get myself into some interesting predicaments.  Some of these were done on purpose and some happened by accident.  The end result, I survived and I had interesting topics to write about.

The strangest things that happened to me in order to get a blog post:

  • Fell out of a moving vehicle
  • Covered in poison ivy
  • Swarmed by mosquitos (I do mean swarmed.  They looked like a thick black cloud surrounding me, my dog Blue, and Gwen.)
  • Cracked a couple of ribs
  • Ate fried frog legs (That may not seem like a big deal to some people, but I really struggled with it.)
  • Had a close encounter with a copperhead snake
  • Had a close encounter with an alligator
  • Touched a live shark
  • Accidentally trespassed into someone’s house (It was truly an accident and it was very embarrassing.)
  • Admitted my personal failures
  • Told embarrassing stories about myself
  • Ripped a hole in one of my tires and ended up stranded for an hour
  • My Jeep sank (like the titanic) into a mud hole, until the mud was even with the running boards
  • Ran into freezing water on the first day of the year (Poler Bear Plunge, it was a blast)

If you managed to get into weird predicaments as a blogger, share your experiences in the comment section.
