Blogging For Dummies

I've had a few different people say it to me.  I don't get offended.  I just laugh.  They say thing like, "I read Rob's blog, and it's so…well…deep.  I read yours to get a laugh or to check in on your family."  Does this mean I am not deep?  Ha!  I don't know.  Sometimes I can be. 

But…if you come to my blog to get a laugh, I hope you are entertained.  However, I am real smart and educated.  :O)

I did remove all the books from my blog page a few days ago.  Those books are all good, but I got tired of looking at them.  Most of them are non-fiction, really smart people books.  I don't always learn the most from those.  The books I tend to learn the most from are biographies and stories of how people got to where they are today.  That doesn't mean I'm dumb.  If you are an avid fiction reader, I think you are just as smart as people who read books with titles I can't pronounce or spell.

My new book list includes the 10 fiction books that have shaped my thinking just as much as a non-fiction book would.  It's funny how God made us all different, isn't it?

What fiction book has shaped your thinking?  I'd love to hear about it.  Maybe I'll pick it up!

    Hi Michelle, I really like your Blog. I believe that you give a good balance of humor,family and some deeper topics.
    The ficton books that shaped my life was The Bobbsey Twins. I always thought that it would be cool to be a twin but Grandma & Grandpa would have nothing to do with it.
    I really think that they liked your Dad more.

    From what I can tell you are incredibly smart. You’ve hit a love of mine, or what was because I don’t do it much anymore – reading. Hence, why I majored in literature. No, I’m not going to be a teacher, especially with my name. But I digress – I think ‘On the Road’ by Jack Kerouac was incredibly influential for me. It fostered my belief in independent thinking and creating new systems.

    Your dad’s blog is hilarious. He’s a great writer. Profound. Quirky. Entertaining. Creative. But the post about little men that live in cans scared me. 🙂 If I ever meet your dad, I’m going to ask him to explain that one to me.

    I think a deep person is also a well balanced individual. You have a good balance of many topics. I read your blog because I never know if I will come away with a few laughs, a new idea or a few thoughts to go hmmm about it and think over for awhile.
    There are many great fiction books out there, at present I am reading “The Shack” and have had a few hmmm moments.

    I started my blog wanting it to be deep and thoughtful…er…well sometimes it is but I have to say I’ve had to accept that it will never be quite what I initially had in mind!
