As I’m sure you’ve noticed (and I know you have, based on the lack of people having anything to say regarding anything I post lately), my blogging motivation is MIA. I’m not quite sure where it went, but no matter how hard I search for it, I can’t seem to locate it. I come across things that I know that I have coherent thoughts about, yet can’t seem to find those thoughts when the time comes to attempt to write something about them. I see ads like this and can do nothing more but post them with one line of analysis beneath them. I see things like this and know that I should address it, especially regarding the discussion that took place in the comments of this post, yet I don’t even know where to begin.
And so I post short, benign excerpts from my dating life or my weekends. And as anyone that’s a regular reader of my blog knows, that’s not what I want this blog to be about. Mindless posts are fine and good every now and then, but I strive to produce writing with substance, and right now that substance eludes me. I’m not one of those people that can force myself to write and the thoughts slowly flow. I’m someone that immediately has a million thoughts about something and can’t get them from my head to the screen fast enough. I’m someone for whom motivation tends to come in spurts; there are times when I’m cranking out 5 posts a day, and there are times like now, when I can’t even manage one decent post per week.
I guess this post is an apology of sorts. Not that I owe anyone an apology about anything. Maybe this is more an apology to myself for failing to maintain the kind of blog that I strive to maintain. Here’s to hoping that the block clears and the fog lifts sometime soon. Until then, posting may be light and/or fluffy.
God, I hate fluff.
