Bloggers

Just stumbled onto yet another awesome blog, I wonder why I can't write like other people is it because my blogging is just too personal and too close to my heart? ParkLife Blog is about an ex Game Ranger who has moved to the city and his experiences living in Jo'burg and is so funny that I just want to keep reading, his experience of the Jo'burg police pulling over a taxi driver this morning and locking him up is well worth a read.

And another blog I love reading is a Canadian girl who is living in Dublin and studying at Trinity college, she writes about her life in Dublin, I just want to read more and check each day if there is update, again I wish I could write like this.

Today I was actually contemplating writing my own book, but I honestly don't know who would read it, I can hardly get anyone to read my blog, so who would read my book? I think these thoughts came from me getting an email from a publishing company in South Africa, a retired Brigadere General from the South African Air Force is writing a book about all his rescue missions, and of course one of them was the Oceanos.  Well they asked me to write a short description on the book for the cover, not sure if it will get onto the cover but there is nothing like hoping.

There's only one thing to do and that's keep at it. Writing is a thankless task.
