I like Monday. I think of it as a mini-new week, and I start fresh with resolutions.
Recently I blogged here about no longer reading books, or more accurately, ebooks on my phone at lunch. Instead, I have been reading Facebook and playing Jewel games. At that time, I thought about creative writing instead. Blogging from my phone while I eat alone. In the past, I have enjoyed writing thoughts and theories. I thought I might start it as a regular thing. Lunch blogging.
The problem with blogs is, writing them is not the same as a diary because nobody actually ever reads a diary or personal journal. To be fair, few will ever read most blogs either but they need to be written with the intention of actually being read. This creates a huge responsibility to generate content worthy of reading. At lunch, I don’t always have a good idea or topic on demand. My best blog ideas come to me randomly, as I see things that inspire me. Today I was just hungry.
This may be why twitter is popular. It lets us blog, but in only 140 characters, so even if it’s boring, at least we only waste a fraction of a second of the reader. A blog is longer, and to make it worthy of your time is effort. Some days I’m in the mood – some days I’m not, but a forced obligation of lunch blogging will make for poor blogs. My writing is inspired by the moment – something that hits me at the time. Well – we’ll see how it goes.
Edit : on my way out, after the meal was finished, I ventures into the men’s room and happened to notice a man standing at the urinal with both of his hands down at his sides. Now that is a blog topic, but I’m fine for today. Not every post is a winner.
