‘Hmmm, So You’re Going to Write a Blog…’

“What’s a blog?”

That’s the usual response I get when I tell people I am starting a blog (or is it Blog?).

Actually the most common response is a blank stare followed by an awkward silence.

I tell them to Google it. 

Just like I did.

The people that do know what a blog/Blog is just give me a funny look and shake their head – like I’m kidding myself.

“Have you ever written anything before?” they ask. 


“Do you have anything interesting to say?”

Of course I do – I just don’t know what it is yet.

I guess the whole idea of blogging is to produce something of value to both myself and to you the reader.  Maybe I could draw on my expertise as a practising dentist, a loving husband and a father of four to compile an interesting and thoughtful read – more likely I’ll just make it up as I go along.

Although, I must admit, my main concern is to try to not embarrass myself.

Ah well I’ve taken the plunge and there’s no turning back now. 

Hmmm, I wonder how many blogs have only one post… 

Cue the Benny Hill music.

    — The Good Doctor Dentist is kinda boring. You ought to look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write article titles to grab people to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve written. Just
    my opinion, it would make your website a little livelier.
