The Big Black Hole

Every day I pull up my Social Media Accounts and look over the blogs written – and my subscribed blogs too. Then I sit and stare out the window trying to think about something to write and after a while of blank staring I just leave it at that and go to work.

This blogging thing sure is challenging. I’ve probably written a hundred things I’ve never posted. For information, I’ve looked up blogs that talk about blogs, I’ve read blogs that give ideas about what to blog about and even looked up more things than I am listing here…. so why then is it still so hard to find something enjoyable and interesting to write about?

For me it’s like lightening. It doesn’t come all that consistently, sometimes I force it but once in a while something clicks. Sometimes when it does I get a few comments, and sometimes not.

A couple of times I’ve just thrown something out there and I’ve gotten a boatload of comments – and it wasn’t anything really incredible or that I put much time into, maybe it was just more interesting, or maybe it was a headline that provoked comments, I’m not really sure.

I do know that writing things down, such as thoughts, stories, technical manuals (not really), or whatever, is good for the mind. I think it’s like exercise only for the mind.

Sometimes all it takes is to get started and just like my morning run, after I get into it I get a second wind and really start to enjoy it. That’s how I think about writing, even though when I’m done, perhaps it goes into that big black hole, I’m still better off than before. And I’m good with that.

Here’s to the big black hole!
