‘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.
