Oiling Some Cogs

I feel rusty at writing at the moment. It’s only been three days since I last wrote here, but it feels too long. A post each day is what I’d like to have the time for, but work and other tasks interfere. I think I may need to find a way to hold my blogging mojo. While I usually do have something to write about and am passionate for writing, I find myself distracted by other concerns. I feel the need to commit to cutting out a lot of excess from my life and to catch up on important tasks I just haven’t found the time for yet. And in doing that I neglect writing. Potential posts pile up and before I know it I’m as behind in writing as I am on doing my taxes (that was planned for the first of this month), cleaning my apartment (that never ends, does it?) and finding time for those friends I don’t interact with as often as I should. What a mess this all becomes.

I wrote early this month about laying down patterns each month of this year. In January I began taking photos daily. This month I’ve been working on resistance training, which is coming along slowly. For March I’ve decided to make writing daily my focus. I’ll have to necessarily push to the side anything that is not vital to do it, but I’m sure it will be rewarding and helpful for a long term commitment to writing that I don’t imagine I’ll ever be able to dislodge from my heart, no matter how neglectful of that passion I may be.

Finding one’s place in the blogosphere can be challenging, especially if we want to have our content noticed by the world. Valleywag created a four sphere map of “Blogging Nirvana” from his understanding of audience reaction. Then various sites were placed onto the Venn diagram. Apple fell into lust and Digg under novelty. This left me wondering just where my site might fall. My best guess would be dancing around in novelty, stimulation and lust. What do you think?

  1. I'd say definitely stimulation, with a leaning to wards lust (also novelty, but primarily lust). Your posts tend to be extremely thoughtful and philosophical, but you also write a lot about things that you seem passionate about.

    Sarah has decided you are very philosophical and worries you will not want to play. She has also decided that we should trick you into taking ballroom dancing lessons by claiming it is a philosophy lecture…….
