Do I look bad in this?

I’ve been reading that your website (as an author) should be geared toward your reader.  I don’t have readers, I am unpublished.  When (if) I do, believe me, there will be a front page with a ginormous pic of my cover.  But, getting far ahead of myself, I have nothing to offer a reader.  I’m figuring it out as I go, but I can’t imagine a way to make this site for readers.

I had two reasons for creating this site.  One was to document my journey in becoming a writer.  It’s my passion, writing, and I love talking (or writing) about it.  I realize there’s a lot of whiny posts on this site, particularly early on, but I sort of had to slip into writing about writing, like getting into a pool that’s not quite warm enough.

The second reason was that… it’s writing.  It’s not fiction, but writing is writing.  I mean, if you want to be an Olympic swimmer, sure you need to go to the pool every day, but taking a dip in the pond by your house can’t be a bad thing, right?  It’s practice, it’s developing my voice, it’s developing my ability to structure my ideas and present them.  It’s directed journaling online.

So, I guess what I’m wondering is if I ever finish that synopsis and send it out, and an agent sees my website on my query letter, and takes a peek… does this blog make me look bad?

No answers on this front.  But I’ve probably got time to figure it out.
