New Era

“Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.” -Cyril Connolly

If you’ve been following this blog for any length of time you’d know that I try to update at least once a month. It started out as a once a week ordeal and then quickly turned into a once a month blog. Often these blog post would be dated in the last few days of the month just to barely get posted before the month was up. Well you may have noticed there is no post for July 2010. So what happened, well I failed.

Failed, what do I mean I’ve failed? I think sometimes it’s easy to forget the driving force that causes our actions. If you go back to my first blog post you’ll see that I started this blog to be a personal diary, a place to share thoughts. Alas, here we are four years later this blog seems to have become a place where I try force my thought out of my head and on the page.

The problem is not that I have nothing to say or don’t know how to say it. It’s this lack of motivation that prevents it from being said. I don’t know what the future holds for this blog but I fully intend to continue to write from my heart. I still hope to write once a month, if not more, but the days of force blogging are over.

The new era has begun.

  1. When I started my new blog, I made this same agreement with myself. I would update when it felt right, and never force myself to stick to a schedule. This usually meant I would update a little more often because I had taken the pressure off. It also means I can not update for over a month when life gets in the way–like right now: we are moving–and I don’t feel like I’ve failed.

    Good luck with the new approach. I’ll be watching for updates when you do post.

  2. I’m in the same boat. I’d like to update more often, but I get so busy and then I don’t feel like/don’t have time to sit down on the computer and do it. Hope you can!
