Diaries and journals don’t seem to work for me. Chances are, if something has to be done everyday, I’ll lose interest rapidly. So what made me think I could support a blog? Somehow for the past few days I have been able to scrounge up content. Will I be able to keep it up?
Perhaps the exhibitionist in me will urge me along. A journal is private. Nobody sees it (much like my blog at this point). But blogging has the potential to reach many, near and far. Maybe the the thought that someone out there might actually take the time to read this will keep me coming back for more.
So many thoughts in my head, so many topics to sort out, but how do I convert the spasms of a few neurons into scintillating text? Ideas swirl in an attractive yet illusive cloud. “Oh yes, that’s interesting, but how does it work as a topic?” Like fog, a seemingly great outline evaporates into thin air.
Should I ponder the meaning life? Do I write “how to” and self- help guides? Should I chronicle the latest developments in science, pop culture, or engineering ? Okay, the engineering thing might prove to be a little difficult.
How about… life experiences? That’s it. Humble though they be, they provide the best insight – a picture of me.
Excuse me while I go experience life…I’ll write about it tomorrow.
