The Muse of Blogging
Migraina and Pathogena are the twin muses for blogging apparently. Lesser known than their nine sisters above, they visited me in my time of need, bestowing upon me the idea for 'True Confessions.' As they whispered in my ear and I struggled to discern their voices through the incessant thumping in my skull I wondered, 'be this the voice of a demon or of an angel?'
They were summoned by the sounds of rib-shattering coughs and unearthly wretching, and they appeared in a pulsing strobe of blinding lights that seared through my eyeballs. And yet, for all this pain, they granted such inspiration as to lead me to admit an early affinity for Barry Manilow. Thus, many of you, spoken to by the same muses, were inclined to admit similarly shocking predispositions, and not hesitantly, I hasten to add.
I saw comments from people I had no idea even read this blog. I was quite intrigued at how such a seemingly lame idea for a post brought such a hearty response. So I am curious to know.....
1. What posts of yours have you been shocked to get a really good response to?
2. What posts have you been shocked to get a poor response to?
3. What inspires you as you generate ideas for posts? Who is your blogging muse?
