It’s been almost a year since I’ve blogged on anything. How does someone with a blog go for such an extended period of time without blogging?
Is it a reflection of how (un)important the art of blogging is to that individual? I read dozens of blogs weekly on a variety of different topics (from software architecture and design to productivity tips). Trust me, I get the value of blogs to the general public.
Could it be that I’m so busy that I don’t have the time to blog? I always marvel at how people blog in the middle of the day. Don’t these folks have a day job like I do or are they all entrepreneurs of their own startups? (I started this point at 6am this morning and finished it at 9:40pm).
Maybe I really don’t have anything to share, no great stories to tell, no opinions on all the other opinions being expressed on all the blogs I read, nothing rad or original. Yeah right.
Do I simply not have enough commitment to the art of blogging?
Bingo. Jackpot. That has got to be it. I can’t explain why else I could go months without a single blog entry.
So how do I grow my passion for blogging or is something that people are just born with? Maybe someone can provide me with some tips on that. Share what practices they follow to keep their blog going. Who knows, maybe I’ll learn something. If you blog about it, I’ll definitely read it.
Then I’ll need to figure that Twitter thing out.
