Chicken/egg

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

I used to be so compulsive about blogging every day. It’s a habit, more than anything. People ask how you come up with something on a daily basis and I don’t really have an answer to that. I think if you do it enough it just happens. Stuff comes to you. It becomes the way you structure the things you see. It’s like how when you have a camera everything becomes a shot, and hammers only see nails. As a blogger you begin to see posts everywhere. Once you get out of blogging daily it’s really hard to get back into it.

Switching over to this site was only supposed to take a day, maybe a week. Instead it’s been the better part of two motivationless months.

I needed the time off though. I needed to think some things out and I needed to put my old blog to rest. I’ve outgrown it, a surprising number of people I know were reading it and like everything else, it pretty much went to hell in a handcart in 2008, taking my readers with it. Everyone needs a change sometimes.

I’ve come to the realization that some of the motivation I need is readers, but that I won’t have readers unless I post something.

Chicken, egg. Chicken omelet.
