My First Blog Post

It doesn't matter who you are or what business you are in, if you have started a blog, there had to be that dreaded "first blog post." According to my level of stress, my now elevated blood pressure, and the new wrinkle on my forehead, you would think I was writing a thesis or something!

What is it that makes the very first post so difficult? Is it because there can only be one "first blog post?" Once you click on the big button that says "publish" is that it? Are you somehow out there floating around in the world wide web's cyberspace waiting for everyone, anyone, to make a comment - or even notice? No more "first blog post" chances. Did you you make a good "first blog post" impression? Will the "second blog post" be so dramatic as to warrant nerve medication?

I can see the long list of "firsts," that are usually documented for all of prosperity to use as ammunition to tease and taunt at every family get-together, changing as I press each key. My first step, first bike ride without training wheels, first day of school, first date, first kiss, first love, first job..... now, first blog post.

How painful was your first blog post? No problem? Like having a tooth pulled? I would love to hear from you.
