Today we were supposed to tweak our title and tagline. I have only been on WordPress for three or four weeks, and I tweaked quite a bit when setting my page up. I had a blog on a different hosting site, and I like WordPress much better for many reasons, not the least of which is I get a tagline! And Blogging 101. And peers to help each other. But, back to the main point, I like my title/tagline as is.
I am, as my title suggests, a runner who blogs.
I am a beginning runner, and so I consider this my journal as I explore the world of running, large and small. As everyone in the world does, I have distractions from this blog. Sometimes I can’t get out a post on schedule (yes, I do have one!) because the car has issues, or I am spending time with my husband. Telling him writing a blog is more important than being with him would so not go over well. I have not tried it.
Thus, my tagline: my journey into running amid other distractions. The tagline also keeps me on track. Why and what do I write? I write about my journey into the huge world of running, races and athletes, but also I can write about the distractions that keep me from that goal. Sometimes writing my blog can help me ignore those distractions–writing is much more fun than, say, class. Sometimes it helps me to focus on what is important, and what really is a distraction.
