Turns out blogging isn’t as simple as it looks. You actually have to have a little bit of focus & determination. You know, those things that are tough for us ADD/ADHD folks. I start to feel guilty about not doing any recent posts here. I’m pretty sure both my readers refresh their feeds daily, if not hourly, just hoping for a new post here. Sorry guys!
It should be easy – Think of a subject, or a link that amuses me, or a story that makes me think. Then, just write about it. So many times I think “Oh, that would be a fun post on hellziggy.com!” but then instead of just writing I decide to research just one tiny bit. That’s where the trouble starts – The Internets! You all know how that goes. Hit one page, find the info you’re looking for, see an interesting link and follow it. Next thing you know it’s been an hour, nothing is written, but hey, you’ve seen lots of funny cat pictures! Don’t pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about. After all, that’s probably how YOU ended up HERE!
But it’s a new year now, and the theory behind a new year is that you can make resolutions to change your life or things you do. Or, you know, be all sarcastic hipster and make a resolution not to make resolutions this year. I was doing that before it was cool. Seriously though, I’ve never been one to make resolutions, mainly because I suck at following through on them. So I’m still not making any, but I am going to try to get back in the rhythm of this writing thing. If I have an idea but can’t wright about it immediately I will make a note to myself rather than relying on my current method of going “yeah, I’ll remember that.” BECAUSE I NEVER DO! Hell, I’ve got so many electronic gadgets with me at all times that I don’t even need a pen and paper to make a note.
If there’s some subject or event that you wish I would address and ramble on about just drop me a comment and let me know. If I don’t actually know anything about the subject I can go with that time-honored tradition of just making shit up!
