Now that I’m more actively trying to maintain a blog I’m finding myself completely overwhelmed with the material out there that’s blogable. When I first set out I was afraid I wouldn’t have enough to say so I made a list of things I could write about when the goin’ got tough. But man, there aren’t enough hours in the day for all the things I want to write about now.
This “problem” is mainly due to the fact that I’ve now found myself totally inundated with news left and right. I finally signed up to Twitter and became a fan of (or now “like”) way more stuff on Facebook. So all the cool articles and bits of news I want to write/muse about are just flying at me from all directions. I have no idea how to to sift through it all. So what ends up happening is a load of half written blogs just pile up in my draft folder. The only way I can find out of this is either become way better at reading and writing faster and/or get a smart phone so I can blog on the go. So while the first part is somewhat manageable (I’ve been an excruciatingly slow reader all my life) the second part may cost more than I want to pay right now. However, that new iPhone is coming out soon…

I have been quite negligent in contributing any sort of pointful* content while consuming from your vast cornucopia of goods. I promise, henceforth, to change my ways.
I’ve now been back for a month. I’m finding ways to occupy my time: applying to jobs, catching up with friends, sleeping, procrastinating on uploading my photos and catching up on all the TV I missed in the last 4 months. But I still find that I have a lot of alone time. And alone times usually equals “in my head time.” Which results in having all sorts of ideas bouncing around. And as much as I love my friends, I don’t think I need to subject them to everything that goes on up there.
Enter my blog that I haven’t touched in almost two years. I always go through the same cycle. I get really excited about it, post a few things, totally forget about it, then remember and post a few more things. Rinse and repeat. But this time I’m actually going to make an effort to keep this thing going. I have a feeling that job hunting may take some time and I will need to fill the empty spaces with something other than soul sucking TV shows.
Before making any sort of to do about it, I’ll see how I do for the next month. If I successful don’t forget about it I may even link it to my Facebook, to share with my 500 closest friends. I love you Web 2.0.
So now the real test begins. Post one down, post two…?
*Pointful, adj – full of sense, meaning or purpose. Yet to be added to the dictionary but I am slowly trying to add it to the English lexicon. If d’oh is in the dictionary why not this?
