Value in Blogging

I take too much time away. It’s been… well, about months since I’ve posted anything, which simply lines up perfectly with my state of underachieving. Recently, I read a quote that went something like this:

Accept who you are… if you’re a jerk, accept that you’re a jerk. Then let it go, and move on. 

So, I’m accepting my under-achieverness, and moving on. Hopefully into a more achiever type of place. Keep getting back on the horse is a cliche that’s relevant here, I think…

It’s funny- in that it’s not really funny but funny seems to be the only appropriate adjective to use kind of way- that I’m not really an under-achiever in much of the rest of my life. At least when compared to the circle of people I hang around with (this is a different conversation that we’ll try and stay away from here). My health and fitness levels/trends far exceed those of most people I know, often making me the one to be asked for advice in these areas. I have been certified as a personal trainer, so I do know some things, and my boyfriend is usually the one to remind me that I’m not as much of a lazy non-doer as my own overblown inner critic seems to think…

…except when it comes to writing. Writing is truly what I love to do. I’m a fantasy writer by nature, still in the amateur levels of pre-pre-pre-publication. These blogs are like practice pages for alternate styles, and the attempt to bring other loves of my life to light to see if there’s value in anything else that happens in my brain. But, after a few posts, that demon called DOUBT, that lives in my sub-conscious, calls out loudly, and I forget why I decided these thoughts needed to public. Word Vomit For Calm is more a personal therapy site than anything, so why does it need to be public? Then I remember all the blogs I read, and the perspectives that help me grow, and I remember there may actually be value in it. 

So, let’s see how long I can remember this, and keep a more consistent thread of thought…

  • What do you find is the biggest value to your blog?
  • What do you enjoy most about reading others’ blogs?
