Resolution

I keep starting posts. Some of them are ambitious. Some of them are dramatic. Some of them really want to be funny at a time when I'm not feeling especially funny. Some of them require thinking about things I don't want to think about. Some of them require admitting things I don't want to admit.

None of them get finished.

And each day that goes by where they're not finished? Is a day where no post appears here. And then it feels as if the post I do eventually put up...well, it'd better be worth the wait, no?

It's never worth the wait. There's no way it could be worth the wait.

I've been trying to find my way to the 'next level,' whatever that is, with this blog. Instead, I'm putting too much weight onto what I do and don't say here. I'm making it impossible for me to meet my own standards. Worst of all, I'm pissing off my friends, who want to know what's going on in my life. And if there's anything worse than my friends, pissed off, I don't want to know what it is.

Thus, I have made a resolution: To hell with my standards. It's time to pump up the volume. I'm going to pelt you all with posts. I'm going to inundate you with minutiae. They may be Twitter-short, they may be all over the place, they may be flat-out boring. But they will BE.

I blog, therefore I am.

YA! Peer pressure, love it!

This made me laugh...and nod my head a lot in self-recognition! I may have to join you in your resolution. Hmmm...

Wow, if peer pressure works that well I would also point out that Ambre is nearing the one year anniversary of her last post ... ;-)

Awesome. Did you see BetheBoy's summer blogging series? All summer all his blog posts were really short, and he "blamed" it on the economy. They were his best stuff.

Great! I've made the same resolution myself a few times...just get it up there! ;-)

Hah, I have also been in "not blogging frequently, therefore posts must be MOMENTOUS!" mode :p. It's not the first time (not nearly).

Years ago, I had a post entitled, "As God is My Witness, I WILL Blog Again!" Not that I'm religious or anything, but I just liked channeling Scarlet O'Hara.
