More than one person has said to me something like “I don’t want to start a blog because I don’t want to compete with you.”  That’s really sweet that that’s even a thought but it shouldn’t be.  As far as I’m concerned, competition with this blog does not exist.  You can’t compete with me.  No, I’m kidding.  The reason that I don’t feel like I have any competition is because there is nothing monetary about this blog.  This isn’t my job, I didn’t write a book, I’m not trying to promote a business.  I started a blog and continue to write it because I’m bored and have nothing better to do.  I do this for the sake of doing it.  Maybe someday this blog will turn into a job for me and then I will make you all sign a non-compete clause but not right now.

Also, Allie Brosh, will you be my friend?

  1. Blogging is an expression of self. While toi people may write about the same thing, the realities and takes are different. Therefore, there is no competition. Besides there are more than enough readers to go around.

    Blogging between friends is the best blogs. Everyone else tagging along is gravy.

  2. If we could manage to get all 10 million survivors a year to blog we would overwhelm the blogosphere. And that would be a good thing. And that might be the only way we could get the normals to listen to us. There are never enough stroke bloggers.

  3. Writing a blog about recovery? Recovery is so slow that it seems irrelevant to write . So much is lost in a fraction of second and it seems impossible to regain and so difficult to compare or exchange notes from fellow survivor . E. g. Movement of wrist and hand, I believe no one has a story to recover those movements and if anyone has than it is not comparable to you. There are so many books out there but no one story is comparable / relevant to your injury.

  4. Thanks 🙂 Blogging is good, fun ad interesting, plus others get a different viewpoint. my Blog it’s not as well set up as this one! hope it’s alright

  5. each blog is as different as each stroke and each survivor. It forms a community, though, which we all need to help our healing.

  6. Blogging IS addictive, but at the same time, it’s cathartic as well as demonstrating to people that they’re not one of a kind.

  7. If I couldn’t blog everyday, I’ll find out when I’m in Italy if my brain explodes from withdrawal. I need my hit of abuse from you damned bloggers. I’m loving it.
