I'm a striving photographer and a wannabe blogger. I've had blogs before…..a few of them, actually. I like the idea of them and I fully intend on writing at least a few times a week, but fail. I really enjoy the creating of a website, the design, the backbone of a blog, but not the feeling of 'having to' write in a blog. I'm telling you now my blogging relationship with you is doomed. It is doomed!!!
Remember the childhood diary you vowed to write in every day even if it was just one sentence. Mine lasted maybe a week and was soon a dust covered forgotten book upon my bedside table that I looked upon while biting my bottom lip with the guilt of a broken goal.
This past Christmas my sister-in-law gave me a thoughtful gift of 3x5" cards for everyday of the year and are separated with vintage pictures for each month all in a cute box. The reasoning behind this: write one thing, just one thing about my day. ONE THING! January 1st - only card written upon. Just like the diary at my bedside table it sits on my office desk….mocking me. I still love it and hope to use it.
Even though our relationship is doomed if we all know there is no goal and no expectations; I will not suffer through any guilt ridden feelings. I'll come and go as I please without the nagging consequence of not writing in my blog. It will be sporadic or shall we say a spontanteous visit with an old friend.
Until then…..take care.
