Like Diamond said in her A Day in the Zone blog, I am addicted to blogging. Yeah I promoted her again. She pays well.
I originally started blogging because I have a desire to communicate. First, I wanted to be in radio. First as a disc jockey, then as a sportscaster, then back to being a disc jockey. Never happened. My fault.
I never met a microphone I didn't like. First when I worked at Broadview Developmental Center, in a variety of things. Then when I later worked at Wal-Mart, people loved my announcements over the public address. Since the 2000 football season, I've been announcing halftime shows.
I also enjoying answering the phone in professional situations.
"Thank you for calling your Fretter Superstore. This is Cliff speaking, how can I help you?"
When I was at Wal-Mart, when everybody else in the department would answer the phone, "Electronics" I would answer "Thak you for calling Wal-Mart Electronics. This is Cliff speaking, how can I help?"
Even nowadays, I answer my phone at work with more than twice as many words than anybody else.
Just seems that blogging would be another way of expressing myself. Mary Ann at work says that maybe blogging is what I was meant to do.
I like the promotion aspect of my blog too. When I can send some of my readers over to somebody elses blog, that gives me a good feeling. I feel that we all have a unique message to tell one another and I also feel that we can help one another with a question or struggle we might have.
I like the group that assembles here. I like the friends I can see and those I have never and may never meet in this lifetime. I can touch those, via the World Wide Web, that I could have never touch if I went into radio.
