Hobson’s Choice Is No Choice At All (Daily Post Prompt Edition)

Today’s daily prompt is the following question:

If you had to choose between being able to write a blog (but not read others’) and being able to read others’ blogs (but not write your own), which would you pick? Why?

Write my own. Not a moment’s hesitation in those three words. I may not be the most prolific blogger and even without this blog, I would still write in old spiral notebooks and on those yellow legal pads. But blogging allows others to read my words and get a glimpse into my mind. It allows me, a quiet, shy person who can easily fade into the background a chance to let the me I know I can be out to play.

That’s not to say, I don’t enjoy reading other blogs because I do. I have read some amazing prose and poetry and glimpsed some incredible photographs. I have been moved to tears, laughed out loud and learned much from the various blogs I have visited. However, there are other things to read. Anyone remember books?


This is a response to the Daily Post Daily Prompt, though I am not a daily poster but I did post today.
