Im a crappy blogger...

I really try to maintain a blog, I really do. I read a lot of different blogs and I really applaud everyone for their efforts in coming up with material for others to digest on a daily or weekly basis. Actually, I find that a lot of the time I dont make my own posts because Ive already contributed a lengthy post of my own in the comment section on another blog haha. I also applaud those who have an actual theme and stick to it because clearly I am incapable of doing the same. After reading a recent post by Rick over at SFDB about why people like blogging, I came to terms with the fact that Im not a blogger but more of a journal-er or maybe a combo of the two. A journablogger.

My blog really has no rhyme or reason to it, it just merely exists. Even the name of this blog makes no sense. I just had it as my username (which came about from a line in a Blind Melon song and my occasional lack of a "brain editing room") so thats what I thought to name it because in the beginning I had no idea really what blogging was or what I was gonna do. I guess I just wanted an outlet for creativity. This is a place where I can bitch about stuff that annoys me, where I can clear my head when it is overflowing with thought, where I can post about things that I find to be pretty cool with the hopes that others enjoy as well, where I can write about a recent meal with the hopes that it helps a business owner capture more customers.

That pretty much defines the person I am, with that definition being that I have no definition. I am not a straight line. I absorb an inordinate amount of useless knowledge. Well, I wouldnt call it "useless" but rather obscure. Much like Seinfeld, my life is a show about nothing. Yet all of these little bits of info that I learn, I enjoy. They amuse me and because of that I like to share them with others with the hopes that they benefit in some way, be it a laugh, a good meal, or a fast track thru the security line at an airport. My friends all know that Im quite a clown and love to make people laugh, mostly at my own expense. Im always looking for a way to help people too. Its just how I am. Unfortunately, while I may have a lot of initial inspiration for a blog post, it fades rather quickly and I dont end up putting forth the final effort to post it. Im trying though.

I guess the point of this post is much like the point of this blog and that is that there is none. Or maybe its that Im not a real blogger? I really dont know. What I do know is that I enjoy writing and I enjoy reading others' blogs and Im thankful for the people who take the time to not only post but to also read my babbling.

Blog on witcha bad selfs!

I'm right here with you but I have to take it a step further and apply this post to my life. I'm all over the place when it comes to skills and experience. I don't have a schtick just like I don't have a theme to my blog. It's about anything I find interesting.

Unless I make that my theme, it's open.

It's good that your blog is about nothing because you can write about anything. Sometimes it's harder (I think) when you're confined to one theme. I have a similar experience as you with blog post ideas. Either they fade quickly or I talk myself out of them thinking that they're really not that interesting. And like that I've lost a lot of blog posts.

But that's the beauty of a blog - it is whatever its owner makes it.

Then again, I think we all stress about this a bit at some point or another...

Thanks for the comments ya'll. Its nice to know someone is reading haha. I thought about giving up blogging a little while ago but wanted to keep going just for the creative outlet. I have a few other ideas for other blogs but I always end up journaling rather than blogging and I lose focus pretty quick. I guess this blog is the way for me to go after all haha.

What about calling yourself a writer who has a blog?

BTW, I've really enjoyed your blogging, these last few months.

I'm going to add you to our blogroll, today.

Keep up the good work!

I find that sometimes I'd be easier if I had an open ended blog where I could write about any topic. I think you have that advantage, which is great. It's even cooler to know you got the name from a Blind Melon song. I find that when I have an initial great idea and it loses steam, I save it and finish it when the time is right. I also listen to music while writing to keep me motivated. You may want to try that. Keep blogging, you're good at it.
