Truth in Blogging

I somehow found myself navigated over Penelope Trunk's blog. In this episode, she related her World Trade Center trauma, as well as some worse disturbia. I know I have read some of Penelope's writings before. And I liked them. Now I know why. She has been through a lot. And she writes about it.

Can those of us with more boring lives compete with such a blogger? I would hope so. We may just not be as exciting. This then is the challenge. Be a strong writer/blogger to make normal life sound enticing. Or we could go out there and live that exciting life to write about.

This post goes out to Penelope. Keep writing about those personal details. They are precious.
