Ideas Challenge

Image via Wikipedia

When i first woke up this morning I had about seven (7) ideas for a blog post today and not nearly enough time to write any of them.  Sadly, I didn’t jot them down either.  note to self: jot down ideas that occur, sometimes the mind goes blank later on.  You might actually use them.

I’m changing my routine.  More accurately said, I’m establishing a routine.  It’s been awhile since I’ve had one.  Didn’t think I needed one and hadn’t realized I missed having one.  Until I started doing more than ordinary tasks.

In getting excited about blogging ,so many things have changed in my private little world.  Initially it was all about just writing.  The nagging question in the back of my mind was: why are you doing this?  If all you want to do is write, then write.  But blogging is about someone else reading what I wrote, isn’t it?  The possibility that someone might?!  Admitting to myself that I even cared about whether or not people read it was something of a hurdle.  Being patient with myself and the learning process is a challenge.  I mean, really, who knew there was  So much to learn about blogging?

My fixed idea about blogging was sitting down and writing whatever and posting it somewhere. Didn’t really know what posting was by the way.   It could be just that.  It can be just that.  There are enough of us out here pouring out our hearts and souls, or jumbled thoughts, or observations and then clicking on the little icon that says Publish.  And that’s it.

It was for me, until I started reading other peoples blogs!  WOW! I’m following several and would dearly love to have some way to file them in order so I can read them in order.   Right now, it’s like going shopping when broke and finding so many things I like.  Or, going shopping at all, sometimes.   When I have too many choices all at once I have a tendency to lock down.  See, I might miss something, make the wrong choice, overlook something right in front of my nose.

Which is why I am establishing a routine.  My goal is to bring some order to the chaos all this input has brought.  To remain excited about learning new things and not be overwhelmed, some kind of plan or discipline is needed.  Day one went pretty well.  Onward and upward.

Good Night

    hello there and thank you for your info – I have certainly picked up something new from right here. I did however expertise a few technical issues using this site, as I experienced to reload the web site many times previous to I could get it to load properly. I had been wondering if your web hosting is OK? Not that I’m complaining, but slow loading instances times will sometimes affect your placement in google and could damage your quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords. Anyway I’m adding this RSS to my e-mail and could look out for a lot more of your respective fascinating content. Make sure you update this again very soon..

      I’m not sure what to tell you about the slow loading of the page. Might be more HTML than usual. Which browser do you use.? My Internet Explorer sometimes slows to a crawl. I’ve also been using Google Chrome and it seems to run more smoothly. Thank you for visiting, reading and commenting. I’m delighted to hear there is an RSS feed, didn’t know that. Thank you and stop by anytime.
