For some reason I'm suddenly finding this blogging thing hard. I still enjoy it and I intend to push on with it but I can't seem to put together a decent post. I'm feeling some real frustration, mostly with myself. I mean, come on! Pull it together girl!
Here are a few examples of some false-start-blog-posts I've had lately:
False start #1:
10 Things I Don't Understand
So can you help a blogger out? I need help with a few things:
1. Twitter. I don't get it. I'm on it. I still don't get it. What am I missing? I keep reading how people are addicted to it. I think it's kind of dull.
Are you on twitter? If you are, let me know and I'll add you to my follow list.
2. Why weekends are so stressful. I always feel pressured to live it up. Then I feel disappointed in myself when I don't.
3. Make-up. I don't think it makes people look better. I think it looks unnatural.
4. Quantum physics.
5. Why people keep staring at me. Is it just me or do people stare at you too? I wonder about the staring. I mean, is it for a good reason - like that I'm shiny or interesting... or is it for a bad reason - like I have something caught in my teeth or I have really weird fashion sense?
So, enlighten me with your sage advice, yo.
Edited now to add: As you can see I only made it to 5 things. There are tons of things I don't understand, but I try to keep the feeling at this blog fairly light and playful and talking about how I don't understand religious wars and bigotry is not light or playful, is it? Anyway. I also think I tend to talk about myself a bit too much.
False start #2:
Label This, Beyatch
Edited now to add: Right now this is just a list of labels. I was going to talk about the ease people have with slapping labels on other people... And, in the grand tradition of talking too much about myself, I was going to talk about how I don't know which label I fit into... And then I was going to talk about whether or not labels are important... And I was going to ask what label you felt you fit into because I'm also interested in you.
False Start #3:
The Matching Family
Canada Day - Red and White.
Edited now to add: That's all I had. Then I was going to talk about why we were so matchy (Canada Day) and then I was going to share pictures. I ended up using the pictures in another post.
So, yeah. I start and then I think BORING! and then I stop. This post too - Argh! Boring.
I've kind of lost my way here somewhere. I think it's all the change - moving, not taking courses anymore, the kids are home full-time now, etc... I've also lost a lot of my free time and my lifestyle is completely different. Don't get me wrong, though. It's not all bad. In fact, most of it is good. It's just different.
Feel free to comment on anything you've read above. Or whatever.... Just to say hi. Why not, right?
