Finding something to say can be difficult.
I suppose I’ve always been a man who will only speak when he means to. Never a word when not necessary. In a sense. When asking a question, it will always be “the” question, I’m not a person who will ask a vague question, as vague questions get vague answers. It’s an important skill knowing what you don’t know! I often forget words, because I usually have a word that has the perfect meaning for the situation, and it has escaped my mind. All that comes to mind are synonyms and words that sound very similar. That’s very annoying, when I’m talking to someone and I’m floundering because I was looking for the word “composition” or “extrapolate”.
But what I’m saying with this is that it’s why I find blogs very difficult to keep up on a regular basis. If I don’t have something in mind to talk about, how can I talk? I end up just digressing and talking about every little thing, culminating in a mass of small anecdotes and little thoughts that haven’t budded into fully-thought ideas or theories or viewpoints. Like how my clothes horse never gets put away. And how Rich Tea are fine biscuits.
I guess there is a skill to search for topics, and perhaps formulate a blog post during the week. That’s what I expect professional and full-time bloggers or journalists do – they search for stories or ideas. That’s all well and good, but trying to do something as a hobby does not burden the same motivation that a paying job does. I’ll spend a whole day typing words into cells in Excel if it’s my job, but give it to me to do when I feel like it and it’ll never get done…
I don’t know what kind of situation that would be; maybe something to do with creating functioning SQL on a website.
My last blog was mainly made up of small digressions every which way so I’m going to try and avoid that. I have no advise, I’m afraid, so you’ll have to stick with me and perhaps I’ll reveal some great secret to
Not burden. Not bear or grow. Almost like nurture.
BURGEON! Burgeon posts when I feel like it and at a regular pace.
PS Honestly, Rich Tea biscuits are fucking brilliant! They’re cheap and go great with cups of tea. Two pounds for a meal a day!
