plink Needs Water Wings

Good news: This blog is evolving.
Bad news: plink is not.

Your little friend is no better now than at the start of this effort and it's not just my writing. Trying to comment on other people's blogs feels like walking into a room full of adults. Here's why.

Despite having gathered up enough courage to comment on other blogs, a nagging problem still remains: I've not got that much to say. Things have gotten to the point where commenting has become a will-I-won't-I sort of exercise.

There's also the disappointment of reading other, better-written, comments. Where does the apparently effortless commentary come from? Half the time I feel that I have something worthwhile to say, someone else has said it in fewer words. There's also a humorous twist tossed in, like it's the most natural thing in the world.

While I curtsey/bow/kowtow to the experts, this does nothing to lessen my frustration. I think that's why they're called experts: they make this difficult sort of thing look easy.

None of this lessens the worry either. Do I self-censor so extensively that I cannot even feel my ideas? Do I really have no ideas or opinions at all? Am I so humourless that people would sooner chew their leg off than talk to me?

To use another metaphor, I feel as though I have jumped into the deep end of the blogosphere and am now coming up for the third (and last) time.

plink certainly needs water wings, but for how long? What form will these water wings take?

I don't think you are the first, nor will be the last person to have that "nagging" doubt about posting comments. I am a whirlwind at the moment, trolling the blogs :) and yes, I do run out of words sometimes, when faced with the truly wonderful comments by others. It gets depressing, right, when you start comparing ... so the key is, stop comparing! Everyone's unique and have their own strengths and weaknesses, knowledge in an area, and not in another. They might say it better, because they have more experience with the topic. Cheer up!

Thanx v-dot-much, I'll keep trying. Fingers crossed that I don't ac(c)identally troll and cause flamewars.
