Friday bits and pieces

25 08 2006

Tried to post this yesterday (hence the title) but blogger was throwing a hissy fit or something!

Since I wrote the post earlier in the week about me not really enjoying the blogging thing at the moment and introducing some rules for me all of a sudden I am brimming over with ideas and things to post about.

I said that I was not going to post any more memes for a while. Then I was reading Running42k’s blog and a meme post that he had written. He mentions me and my decision at the beginning and makes a very pertinent point. That a meme is fun to do but in essence it is for the reader to learn something about the author.

As soon as I read this I understood why I didn’t seem to be enjoying the blog as much anymore. Most of my time was taken up with answering questions and memes and although I was enjoying it the focus of the posts were you, dear reader, learning more about little old me. The writing I was doing wasn’t really coming from the heart – it wasn’t really about me in there here and now it was too abstract for me to enjoy and the set format was stilting my writing in a way, not letting my full personality shine.

So now I feel that I have made a breakthrough I do not feel the need to stick to my rules in the same way as before. I do however have a couple that I will try and stick to. Try and write about me or something I am thinking or feeling.

I already feel that I am enjoying it much more again.

Right, dinner to make and a wedding reception to attend so I had better go. Hope you are all having a nice weekend.
