Return to blogging.
Y’know, I love writing and I love my blog. I really do, I find blogging to be cathartic and it allows me to indulge in one of the more intellectual pleasures in my life…but dammit if life doesn’t have a way of forcefully interjecting itself between you and your best intentions of keeping it updated!
Thankfully though, the interjection of life in this instance, has been a positive occurrence full of learning, love, growing and a cementing of prior experiences and ways of thinking…which means a great deal of writing fodder.
Blogging is like anything that requires dedication and habit, once you break the chain, it is easy to careen seriously off course into a ditch until you make a concerted effort to pull yourself out and get back on track.
Well, I guess this little post is that concerted effort, not much to look at, but I suppose it is a tangible action to pierce the puss filled skin sack that has grown over my keyboard preventing me from bashing out lines of nonsensical jibberish and sentences masquerading as intellectual teeter-tottering.
A thought just entered my head — I think one of the big traps to blogging…or indeed going back to anything that you previously spent a lot of time engaged in, is to come back in a huge way, go back to the gym and hit the weights TWICE as hard, swim THRICE as far or come back to blogging and post TETRICE (…is that even right?!) as much!
In other words, make a grand re-entrance into the foray, which in itself can seem like a huge barrier to coming back to it.
Ah, I say screw it, just get the first one outta the way in whatever haphazard way you can and take it from there.
I hope you out there in Internet land have been kicking ass and taking names. And thanks to all the people who have asked when I’ll be back on the blog, I guess now I can say I am
Sharing is caring.
