Ugh! I said I was going to finish a good blog post and then I didn't. I guess that means that until this blog climbs higher up my priority list, I will have to make it almost a speed typing exercise. It's really hard to get over that transition of posting to post into posting things that people should actually read.
When I was a teenager on Twitter, I was very conscious of what I was posting and the fact that it would be public and sit on the internet forever. I still tweeted sometimes, and I still think those are funny tweets. Well, at least good for memories. Idk. You be the judge. ... Actually, I think on that medium, I've probably let my quality standards drop, since it's really fun to chirp along with whatever hashtag games and conversations are popular. Live tweeting is really more fun to do than to see.
I know that micro-blogging is supposed to be easier and more carefree than regular blogging, but how does it seem so much easier? When I share tweets I usually wish that I had more space to fill out the joke and to clarify my feelings. Maybe I should start transitioning those to blogs? Or should that still be on a micro-blogging site? This isn't for tumblr... Is blogging complicated because I'm not old enough to have ever had a LiveJournal? Mysteries of the Universe, I guess...
This week I thought of at least three blog posts about my life and experiences and things that I want to share. I'm pretty content with the ideas, but I can't seem to find the moments in the week to fully develop a message that would present them. I understand that it doesn't pay off to worry and perfect every post, but the argument that blogging is a good way to just practice writing is hard for me to swallow. Mostly because I'm already pretty comfortable with keeping a journal and writing for myself. I don't have a problem finding times to practice writing, but there becomes a weird fog that falls over my thought process when what I'm writing is supposed to be for a public space. Yet, something makes me feel like I should still be blogging. I'm not sure for what or whom, but I have to keep trying and I'll figure it out on the way. My goal for next week is to finish one of those blogs before next Sunday. We'll see how I do.
