Blogging is my therapy.
I can vent, pontificate and share my adventures with the world (or at least those that are willing to read about it…). Heck, sometimes blogging even allows me to be insightful.
I’ve heard it said that it’s unhealthy to talk to yourself – especially if you talk back. I find quite the opposite is true. In fact, this is the most important thing I’ve learned in my short time as a Doggie Blogger. When I write a blog post, I have a conversation back and forth with myself, trying to figure out what I want to write, what my readers (all four of them 😉 ) want to read about and how I can write it a fun, engaging and witty way.
Neither my human Dad (Phil) nor myself has spent much time doing any creative writing. Blogging allows me to tap into a unique corner of my brain that I don’t always get to access. Once the creative juices get going, I’m able to think more clearly and accomplish other tasks more efficiently.
Even if I don’t have a lot of people following my adventures yet, I live for the euphoric feeling I get after writing a great post. Even if it doesn’t come off as super insightful, I know that I’ve accomplished something that I normally wouldn’t have done.
I was reviewing the schedule and I was very disappointed that I didn’t get in front of a computer in time to get a ticket. My parents don’t have a computer setup in my kennel, so by the time they got home from work that day and let me out of my kennel it was already too late.
I need to go to the MN Blogger Conference (sponsored by Top Rank Online Marketing) to help flesh out and hone these skills that I’m beginning to develop. However, as a puppy, I don’t think CoCo would let me in for the event, so I would like to be able to send my Dad, Phil Wocken (@pwocken), in my place. I know that he needs to hone his skills more than I need to, so he would also greatly benefit from the conference. Since I have aspirations to share my adventures with a greater audience, I would be very anxious to hear what he learned and how I can implement those topics into my own blog.
Thank you for considering me for the coveted conference ticket. I would be very grateful to have the opportunity to attend the event!
