Whooshing by

Updated: Aug 13, 2021

The really great thing about starting a blog that very few people read is that you can say whatever you want, whenever you want.

The really terrible thing about starting a blog that very few people read is that NOBODY is clamouring for your next post.

So you can easily end up saying nothing whatsoever for many months on end.

This is what has happened to me (and, I suspect, to about 17 gazillion other would-be bloggers).

There are a lot of reasons for this and many of them start with P:

  • Preferring to read other people's stuff than write my own.

  • Procrastination.

  • Podcasts (so MANY to listen to!!).

  • Perfectionism.

  • Politics (I've tried to cut back on consuming too much, but it's hard to look away).

  • Pessimism (see above).

  • People-pleasing (I meet other people's deadlines no problem, it's just my self-imposed ones that whoosh by).

  • Perfect summer days.

  • Plain-old-laziness.

However, the whoosh stops here. I'm back on track. Apologies to everyone who was (I mean, both of you who were) really missing my posts.

I even made that little quote-image-thing in only a few minutes, rather than stealing one from the internet. That was fun. Maybe instead of getting rich blogging, I'll become one of those people who gets rich making those little quote-image-things.

I'm trying to find the perfect way to end this post, but I think I'll just leave it at: Stay tuned. More to come. I'm back. (Question: If I never really started, can I actually make a comeback? I'm going to try!)

Bye for now.
