I’m Back!

And so is Joan!

I have actually been back for a week and a few days already but have been milking my blogging break and thinking about how I’m going to continue with my blogging adventures. I suspect there is a blogging mentality that I have yet to fully embrace. A blogging voice, somewhere deep within me that I haven’t yet found. About five times a day I come across some snippet of information, or have a random semi-interesting thought, and think: I should blog about that. And yet, no posts. Clearly this isn’t how it is supposed to work. I mean, isn’t the whole point of a blog that you don’t self censor at all? Isn’t this the medium for randomness, half-formed-ness, and personal over shares?

I think I’m having a full-blown blogging identity crisis. Mama!

Stay tuned for the next thrilling installment, in which I just can’t decide what to have for breakfast. Hmmm. Maybe I can write a blog after all.

  1. I’ve been blogging for almost 8 years now and I still haven’t fully mastered the self-censor. Oh, I post plenty of trivia, but every so often I think of something and decide “nah, that probably wouldn’t make a good blog post.” Even though the blog is supposed to be primarily for me!

    Yes — thanks for your post, Jeff. The friggin’ self censor. My issue is about censoring, definitely, but also about lack of clarity to do with my voice and purpose. I started this blog as a bit of professional self development, but I keep wanting to post more personal stuff, and then stopping myself….and worrying that too much sarcasm won’t go over well with current and potential clients. What’s worse, though? A dead blog or an occasionally snarky blog? The former, I reckon, so I’m going to try and stop over thinking it and just post away.
