I’m starting a blog! Why? Because my Employment law professor Ron Shingler asked all of his students if they had a blog, and everyone said “Nope.” Well, I was both angry and inspired all at the same time! (For some reason, those two emotions always seem to coexist for me.) I was in a class of 20 perspective paralegals, and not one of us felt that our thoughts were worthy of publication! What absurdity! And since I’m always the loud mouth of the class, I figured if anyone was going to start blogging it should be me. So I would like to take a moment to say “Thanks for the inspiration, Professor.”
I guess I understand why people don’t blog. Writing is hard. But if you don’t grow, you die inside. Personally, I think writing is a lot like dancing. You have to be confident enough in yourself to just let go and let it happen. People might laugh at you or think you are a fool, but at least you had the courage to do it. So, the music has started. Time to dance!
