So I don’t blog much. I’m busy with a lot of stuff. That’s one reason. Another reason is that I’ve turned it–in my mind–into a performance. You know, an opportunity to impress someone. Read my blog, think it’s awesome, buy my book, repeat. Might be a great strategy for someone. I think that’s a bad strategy for me.
I think a better approach for me is: use the blog to post thoughts about what I’m reading, what I’m writing, what I’m thinking about. If someone finds it, reads it, and thinks it’s interesting, that’d be cool. Otherwise, it’s a good place for me to park my thoughts, to work through ideas. As I used to much more often in my journal. My “morning pages.” That was never a performance. No need for this to be. I’m just willing to share with anyone who’s interested, that’s all.
