It’s wonderful that nowadays you have the cyber space to log in and share your views and opinions with the rest of the world. At the time, there was nothing of the sort. Yeah, I wish there was, maybe I wouldn’t have stopped writing in the first place, or maybe I would have, who knows…
But I really feel lucky that, at least I had a screen and a keyboard. In case technology had never been involved in my writing process, there would have never been a writing process in the first place.
What’s more important? (to bloggers in general I mean) Content? (words, pictures) Fresh, new, creative, original thoughts? Ideas? What about views? Traffic? Visitors? Comments? Likes? You are probably listing other names, right? Yeah, we could go on for hours.
We want to write awesome stuff, that’s our common goal. We read each other’s work, get amazed, inspired, captivated and all hooked up in our fellow bloggers’ posts, besides our own lives, friends and peers, families, memories, experience and background.
Sometimes I wonder: “Wow, this was so good, what a beautiful, bright mind!” “What a wonderful, brilliant mindset!” “What strength and determination!”
After some stressful days, I don’t feel like writing. I know, it’s a therapy and letting things out helps, and no, I don’t think it’s some kind of block I am having. I have plenty of ideas inside my creative factory, but I need to take my time with my thoughts and not forcing words and rushing posts. I don’t expect my posts to be perfect, they are not and it’s not my aim, but I want to feel… you know like: “I feel good about the work I just completed!”.
More perplexing is that I have the “READING NON STOP” urge. Plus, I am usually the type of “one book at a time” but I am reading more than one…
I consider it as an experiment, breaking my old habit. I thought that at least the book topics should be different, in order to avoid entanglement or confusion. Yeah, let’s see if I will really like it this way. Obviously I will let you know 🙂
Blogging is socializing (I should really stop stating the obvious I know), so besides the content we share, including words and graphic display, audio and video, what we try to do is build a bridge for communication. Possibly a High Speed Way Bridge! We can frame and shape reality, fiction or concepts as we see fit. In this cyber space we are free to write all sorts of things, then it’s the reader who will evaluate to like us or hate us, to come back or not, to be a regular reader, thus following and so on.
But blogging is not mere fresh material sharing (hahah probably lots of us wish it could be “easy” as that), blogging also requires a whole set of skills enveloped in one being:
I was so excited the first day, when my first post was published and I still am. Writing has been a “partner in crime” during all my life, not that I attempt to create a writing lab, but it has always soothed me, as bringing my thoughts to life, is like breaking my whole being into thousands fractions. It might look weird, but that’s my way of being complete, being a puzzle and switching my pieces from time to time. That’s a way that makes me feel alive, because it’s not easy, because it’s hard, thus I still keep learning.
