She asked why not – she wrote to her mum every day. Well I said – when ever I sit down to write to you – I can’t think of anything to say.
My mom said – that is why she wrote to her mom every day. Because then – even something as trvial as what you are having for dinner is important. If you only write once a week – so much passes by that nothing is important enough. So you dont write – and the next week it is even harder.
Write every day she said.
Of course, I still didn’t, I’m a guy – she was my mom – but the lesson remains baked in the brain.
And it occurred to me tonight about blogging. I am not a blogger. I write stuff that goes onto blogs. I have hundreds of ideas and thoughts that I want to write about. Half baked ideas, pulpit beating – you name it. But I don’t. Not enough time. But then this post took me about 5 minutes to write.
I think that is the point – it’s about how I should be thinking about all my blogs. Write – Publish. Every day – otherwise nothing will be important enough.
What do you think ?
