I've hit that point in my blogging, or more accurately, my lack of blogging, where I write a blog about my lack of blogging. Very, very sad.
But seriously, how do they do it? I see people that keep a blog and they write something every day. Every…damn…day. I keep a reasonably busy schedule, but I can't claim to have no or even very little downtime. Theoretically, I should be able to find something to talk about on a daily basis. Hell, anyone that knows me knows that I talk to myself constantly and yes, I am one of those really creepy guys that can walk down the street, muttering to himself…and make himself laugh. So, why can't I just write it down (type it, whatever). I've run into the same problem at various points in my life when I've tried to keep a journal. I start it out with the best of intentions and make entries every day or so for maybe 2 weeks, and then 6 months or a year goes by before I even remember that I was doing it.
Is it a motivational thing? Is it tied to some sort of security/insecurity issue. And if so, which way does it go? Is it that frequent bloggers are insecure and need an audience, or is it that infrequent bloggers are insecure and don't think anyone cares what they have to say? Is it both? What makes on person eager to share their thoughts and put them down in words, and another guy instinctively keep them mostly to himself? On a daily basis, I don't even think about blogging. I mean it does not even occur to me to write anything down. I don't have a thought or a revelation and then think to myself "I need to blog this!" In fact, I most often forgot my blog exists except on days when I just happen to look at my web site to update my portfolio or something.
Whatever the cause, I am trying once again to take up the gauntlet and write more frequently. But if I am honest with myself, I have to admit it probably won't work.
But at least I blogged today, right? *sigh*
