Where to Start?

Welcome to CCC’s first true post. I am new to the “Cancer” club which I did not choose to join and have been rather forced to join. It is not a club one has any choice over doing.  This does not mean I have not been indirectly affected or effected by cancer, more on that later.

It has been very difficult for me to know what this blog should entail and what the format should be. Why was and is posting on this blog so hard for me? Why do I procrastinate on posting anything? Why am I making this so hard?

Well, I feel a big responsibility to the readers and myself so feel very unsure “Where to Start”.  Am I taking on to big of a venture? I really don’t know, I just feel the need to do so. Why then has it become so hard just to write, post, start? My main concern is being a supportive outlet for others who may be at times as confused as myself! So this post is a start at writing and posting to just see where it leads.

First, I am undecided what the format should be. Should it be about my own adventures with cancer? Should it be about what I learn through research? Should it be more structured or just whatever comes up as it comes up? I may be able to answer that last question, definitely not structured in any way. I am not very good with structure. While I am better at just going where the wind of thoughts take me. Should it be a big mixture of input, output?

So then how does this become a supportive blog which will give and offer support needed by all of us? Not just myself but the readers too.  Should I just start with sharing my thoughts and hopefully others will join in with their own feedback and suggestions? I feel I must just post what comes into my mind so the blogs will start. Rather it be good or bad and allow the site to dictate what myself and the readers need and want. It will evolve as it should in time, right?  The bottom line is I just need to start and keep it moving because if I wait till I have all or some of the answers to my questions then I will never post a thing.

Now with that said I will work on a new post based on what comes to mind.  Please, feel free to let me hear from you on your thoughts and what you need for support.

Thanks for being here and please, return often.
