What's In a Blog?

I've been blogging and blogging and blogging and I am getting blogged down lately.
What's in a blog? Mine is about depression and elation. Big topic! I could go on and on and blog and blog and blog. But...what is the purpose of the blog?

Originally to focus on this multi-discipline piece and keep the focus as my friend Melissa has coached me. Well...then it is interactive so....the people who comment and suggest help to form its format too.

Also, I have been reading and reading and reading blogs and blogs and blogs. I am a blog junkie. There are so many with so many and then there are websites that a blog may turn into. It may become a business and not just a means of sharing with friends and new acquaintances who may become friends.

Then there is the important aspect of this space where I share my experiences, my gut, my poetry, my connection to writing-slideshows-music. I am also blogging selfishly for me. A good selfish? Yes. A good one. This is my open diary to the world. I have come out of the closet as one who has suffered many debilitating depressions and to yell quietly in words that I am still here and worthy. Worthy of what? Worthy to be an artist who has a message or messages and who is talented and has a an actress, mime, writer. Who do I think I am? I think I am someone who must express her truth.
