Damn. Now I think it IS. The shame...
Oooooh, I received a worrying e-mail this morning. The title was '4 REASONS WHY YOUR BLOG SUCKS' from the brilliant Men With Pens website. Do you remember? The one written by a woman who calls herself James Chartrand because she received more credibility as a man. (Ssssssssssssss!)
When I saw it, my heart sank. Do I REALLY need to be made despondent on a Monday morning when I've got a lot of work to do? Do I really need my confidence shot to pieces AGAIN?
I steeled myself and read it. It's the masochist in me.

- A lack of authenticity
- Share a story not advice
- Write for yourself, not others
- It's time to change the world
I write blogposts AND I strive to change the world. Oh dear, I don't mean to sound worthy and grand, but bringing a bit of humour and lightness into people's day and saying things that other people (writers and horse-riders mainly) can relate to so they don't feel as though they're the only one with that particular gripe or challenge or problem...that's what I do. My little drop in the ocean.
Drops cause ripples, don't they?
And my blog still no doubt sucks but I don't really care.
