On Writing Blogs July 23, 2007Posted by Joe in blogs, internet, life.
My blog writing has slowed considerably. Which is sad because I was never very prolific to begin with.
There are many things that I find interesting and sometimes get the hankering to write something about, but then when I sit down to actually do it I find I have very little to say that hasn’t already been said better than I could write it.
I mentioned in passing in my first post here the inherent conceit of writing a blog. The strange idea one must have that they have something to say that other people would want to read. Now I should clarify that I read a lot of blogs that I find very interesting. They make great insights and good explanations. (Or so they seem to me.) But I honestly don’t know if I believe it 100% when someone says they find my blog interesting.
But I do think it is a good idea for me to keep writing stuff here, but it will definitely be in fits and starts. I will post multiple times in a single day and then go a week with nothing to post. I spend a lot of time commenting on the blogs of others though. I should reply by way of my blog more often than I do. Maybe trying that will give me more to post about.
Thanks to all those who have bothered reading and especially to those who have left comments.
I’ll see if I can’t find something interesting to write today.
