Under the microscope

I just discovered today that I am being critiqued! Lauren, a Uni student from South Australia, has selected 2 blogs to critique for an assignment. She chose one, honest-to-goodness, interesting and captivating blog called American Soldier.... ....and then....mine. I am quite impressed that she picked mine. Not really sure why however, but it's very cool to be found and critically analysed. I don't think my blog is anything special at all. I haven't changed the design since it began. I write about stuff that interests me, but probably wouldn't interest everyone else. I hardly ever re-read what I've written and make changes. I just dump whatever is in my brain onto the screen and hit Publish (although sometimes I might spell blog like bolg, and come back to fix it so I don't look like a dullard) I try to post every day, more for the fact that I want to have a record of my thoughts, feeling and life for myself, then to try and appease any audience I may have. A bit selfish hey? I love the fact that people read it, but I don't expect them to REALLY read it. If they browse the headings, or flick through archives, or hit 'Back' straight away, I don't mind. But the fact that I get people 'window blog-reading' at all makes me happy. There are so many great blogs out there that I wouldn't expect people to waste time at mine. Most of the ones that I love are over in the Blogroll on the left, and some of those people really know how to write. I just wish I knew how to write to be able to captivate an audience like those people do. So anyway, thanks Lauren, for selecting mine out of the millions out there. I appreciate the words you've written and hope that your assignment gets the High Distinction that it deserves :)
