A friend and regular reader of my sort-of blog sent me an email recently:
“Wasssup with the blog situation? Are you dis-blogged? or a-blogged? or de-blogged?”
A few minutes later I emailed her back
“I don’t know: I just do not seem to have to motivation to post on it any more. It is kind of going nowhere and I am thinking of several options for reworking it: politics only, pure diary format, on mental health issues, tech stuff. I don’t know really but none of these really grab my imagination. Many of the best blogs that I have read are on topics integrated into other aspects of author’s life, eg music, design, photography, health.
I just don’t seem to be able to go anywhere with it right now. “
She replied to this and told me she was surprised to read such a considered response:
“I guess I was just expecting a “I havent had time”.. “
I still cannot find sufficient motivation to post here recently. This has something to do with seeing how others have developed the art of and also pure laziness. A little bit of disillusionment has also set in, not entirely unrelated to long bouts of navel-gazing. I don’t want to be blog of the month and I really couldn’t care less what thechancer is posting anymore. Not even the recent JS Deceaux campaign got me going. I occasionally tune in to Conor’s excellent blog and Jazz Biscuit seems like good fun still.
