Stumbling towards a blogging mojo.
My apologies for the lack of posts lately. I've been really busy with worky projects. I mention this not as an excuse, but as bit of background to a little problem, a not so little insight and a slight change of direction here on Life 2.0.
Up to just Life 2.0 has been a sort of hobby of mine (which I really enjoy) and an outlet for my 'philosophical' musings. The problem is, when I get really busy the time I have for musing (by this I mean the times when I just goof off and reflect on things like why men have nipples, and occasionally deeper stuff) tends towards zero. I'm not complaining in the least because life, though much busier, seems to be moving towards one big serendipitous soup... no real place to get a firm foothold, but far less need to do so -- a slightly scary but an absolutely awesome ride where your feet no longer touch the floor.
But, and here's the thing, I don't really have different parts of my life anymore -- I love the work I do and it embodies much of what I believe; I get a huge kick out of building businesses as it's my personal sandpit for trying out my ideas in the real world... and some of the day to day stuff is, at least to me, far more interesting than anything I read in any philosophy book.
So I've decided to stop trying to make this blog fit an aspect of my life that doesn't really exist independently anymore. From now on I'd like to share more of my experiences, the things I'm learning and working on, stuff I come across you may find interesting... More off-the-cuff material and not so much editing.
I suppose this is more 'thinking in words' than writing in the traditional sense, but this should be easier and more fun for me. I enjoy sharing ideas, I love hearing what you think and I get a buzz from the general socialness (is that a word?) of it all. Hopefully I'll get to write more too... and again, that's good for me, because it helps sort the wheat from the chaff in my mind and clarify my ideas. Besides which, I definitely need more writing practice ;-)
As I type this I can hear Paul Simon singing in my mind, "But all my words come back to me in shades of mediocrity". I must have a subliminal fear that if I write stuff that's too unconsidered those words will come back to haunt me. My kids used to take the Mickey out of me for my two little foibles -- refusing to go anywhere if I haven't had a shave or got clean shoes. I guess it all amounts to the same thing. Old habits eh! But what the hell, I'm going to do it anyway.
So there you have it... I hope you enjoy the new format and thank you for being so patient with me. :-)
BTW, I'd love to hear about your own journey to finding your blogging flow.
