Not Taking Myself So Seriously
I haven’t written a blog post in a little over a month now. You probably already know this because of the mass chaos breaking out all across the world and general downcast mood permeating the social atmosphere everywhere. I figure that if I don’t start posting again soon, the world is likely to come to an untimely end any day now. (you already know how I feel about zombies…)
Truthfully, and with a somewhat deflated ego, I’ll admit that none of those things are true – at least not because of anything I have or haven’t contributed my 3 per week blog posts. It’s somewhat of a bummer because I think that some of my ideas are pretty spectacular, but to my astonishment, the world isn’t short on great ideas, information, and more free advice.
I’d also like to start not taking myself so seriously. Maybe I don’t want to create a custom graphic for every blog post that goes out. Maybe I want to use an iPhone picture taken in my messy office with my town house crackers in the background. Maybe I don’t want to even care if my hair is fixed.
I have to remember that my reason for blogging doesn’t have to be about changing the world, creating an enormous following, or attempting to mass distribute my opinion of how the world should be. Scratch the last part, I’ll still be sharing my opinion like a kindergartener shares head lice at nap time.
One of the big reasons I blog is just because I like talking to people. Hopefully some more of the people who read my posts will take the time to talk back. Agree with me, disagree with me, or just hang out online with me… but not in a creepy stalker way.
Blogging is a compulsion for me. I pretty much have to do it, and if marriage has taught me anything, it’s always better when you’re not doing it alone. :)
