I still never seem to find the time to get this blog off the ground. I keep asking myself, “what can you say that others might find interesting?” I finally concluded this is simply an excuse. However, this idea did lead me to understand better what I’m trying to accomplish here. After all, blogging is not like your typical marketing strategy where you can narrow in on a way to use a tool because you can identify a collection of people with common likes and interests, then play to that. Anyone can wander by.
Instead I’ve decided this blog is less about you and more about me. Why not? It’s a great way to get to know someone…if you so desire. (If not, my posts won’t be long enough to waste your time.) Besides, my limited market research shows this is what most people are doing anyway – using their blogs to share themselves and their opinions. It’s a nice way to get to know what makes people tick, so now I’ll share some of my interests.
Now I decided to actually post a blog, I’m discovering that it’s a great place for me to put my thoughts together. Like slo-mo. I don’t know about you, but I rarely get to think through concepts like I used to. Everything I do today is quite reactive. I live for the “here and now” these days. You know the feeling. You struggle and struggle with an issue. But as soon as you walk away from it for 10 minutes – poof, a different solution (often better) appears like magic. That’s what this blog is about. Slowing down my thinking long enough to know what I’m actually thinking instead of how I’m reacting.
The only dilemma left is a tough one. How am I going to take care of this and keep it going? I’m hoping that might be easier now it’s all about me. But you just never know, do ya?
