Blogstipation

For much of the last two months, I’ve been so busy that blogging has been something that has been deferred or intermittent. This weekend that is not the case but I found that I had so much stuff I wanted to write and talk about and even discuss in podcasts that it kind of froze me. I ended up doing none of it.

The pattern I most like for myself is to post a few times a day, shorter bits and links to interesting things I’ve ran across on the web. A few times a week I like to write up a longer essay style post and maybe once a week or so I like to have a big long essay on some subject that is interesting me. I don’t believe that I’ve come anywhere close to that the entirety of this summer.

It’s certainly not for lack of subjects. My list of things I want to post about is getting ever longer, my starred items in Google Reader (which is how I signify I want to come back to it) has had 100 items added in the last month and must be over 500 total by now. If anything, that’s kind of the problem. I need to pick a thing or two and just go for it. This is the kind of stuff I preach, not getting bogged down by life, so I need to practice it myself.

  1. i feel this way sometimes too dave, about not blogging, twittering (for me microblogging) and actually keeping up w/ my feed reading – sometimes life just gets in the way, but then i remind myself about my priorities: family stuff, walks w/ dogs, exercising/health, the realities of life etc… they are all so much more important than any online geeky stuff will ever be (for me), and i get over it – life is to short: so i enjoy blogging etc.. when it happens and lose zero sleep when it doesn’t – but that’s just me 😉
