Meta

wide legs

I’ve been having such a hard time writing lately. I don’t know what my problem is. It’s like I think I have to be in some kind of magic creative mood to write and every time I sit down, I’m brain dead so it doesn’t happen. Of course when that magic moment does strike daily, after my morning coffee, I’m often off driving around town running errands or cleaning house or making breakfast or something so all kinds of posts get written in my head and nothing goes on here.

I’m thinking the best tactic to combat this is to just write anyway. I don’t have to write epic posts that end in sentimental twists. You guys are probably sick of that format anyway. It’s okay to just ramble off any old thing off the top of my head. I don’t know why I put so much pressure on myself.

Wait, yes I do. It’s because there are so many other great blogs out there! Back in the day when I started writing there weren’t very many blogs at all. I wasn’t all that concerned anyway because nobody even knew I existed. Now we’re in all these social communities and there are professional writers to compete with. I just can’t do it.

I think about giving up blogging all the time but that would be such a loss for me. How could I turn my back on such a easy job that has gained me meaningful relationships with friends and business contacts that are a dream to work with? Not to mention, the ads on this site pay just well enough that I would miss them if they stopped. So I guess I’ll plug on through.

And now I’m going to lop this off the top of my regular post and for once post the lopped off part instead of the real post. I do this all the time, did you know that? I start out my posts with long rambling apologies and then I just delete them because who really cares about the meta stuff? But today I’m going to just post the meta stuff because I have no time to get to the real post. But I should get to it soon. It’s about Sea World.
