101’ing Away From Home

Yo blogger: introduce yourself,
Explain why you are here —
Tell why you don’t write privately,
But on the blogsophere.

Relate to us the people who
You hope this blog will reach:
What kind of questions you will ask,
The things you have to teach —

And let us know the dreams you have
For what your blog will do.
Then, soon you’ll be in readiness
For “Blogging 102”.

I read these few instructions
And I felt my spirits fall;
I hadn’t any reasons,
Not a single one at all —

Just why I started doing this
Or who I hoped would read.
I have done this obsessively
And at a breakneck speed —

I love to write and need to write
It’s healing and it’s fun —
That’s all that I could think to say
When asked to “101”
