I’ve probably started 10+ blogs over my almost 33 years of life but none of them have lasted, for numerous reasons, the most common being – I got lazy. I’m telling myself I’m not going to get lazy this time because there’s money involved. I’m actively trying to over-ride my ability to talk myself down and out of things. Other reasons they failed or just fizzled into non-updated existence, hidden with all the other failed blogs is because I would be about a very specific thing – baby animals, Christmas, coffee, failed interactions with people, etc. I couldn’t force myself to write something about these topics if nothing was happening in my life related to these topics, and we all know Christmas only comes around once a year, from mid-September to late December. What was I supposed to do except quit posting and return back to talking about ‘one day maybe writing on a regular basis in an attempt to make it a career or at least semi-fulfilling hobby’?
I’m tired of hearing myself say I am going to write. I am tired of only scrawling in notebooks half-filled that I won’t let anyone read because the contents are “not important”, “not interesting”, “not funny”, “not of any use to anyone”. I don’t care anymore. At least I’m telling myself I don’t and trying very hard to believe it. The internet is full of writings that are not important or interesting or funny and of no use to no one, so why can’t it be filled with my writings meeting the same guidelines? It’s time for me to contribute to the wasteland of meaningless blog-posts. So let’s get started.
