writing for an audience of oneDecember 8, 2008
Last time I was actively writing here was back in mid-October, maybe before that even. I go through spells where writing is not what I want to do, and trying to get something out is almost physically painful. This was one of those times, sure, and part of it had to do with me trying to write on four blogs at once, as well as running online forum games with my friends. Burn-out is my middle name.
Also, it came to my attention that I was probably not reaching many ears with my ramblings here. I know of three dedicated readers, occasionally four, and for some reason, I decided this wasn’t enough of a reason for me to write.
About a year ago (I think), Krista at The Silent K wrote about writing for writing’s sake, and that she was the only audience she really needed. That is the attitude I wish I could manage.
So here I am again, writing before work, trying to cram in a post. I don’t know what I’m gonna do with this blog, or if I’m gonna do anything. I was spurred on by an episode of Skepticality where two blogging skeptics told about their trip to the Discovery Institute. There was a small plug for activism through whatever means necessary. I figure it’s worth another shot.
On that note, I don’t want to go to work. I’d be perfectly content to sit here and research news sites for a couple different posts. But I don’t know of anyone who gets paid to do that.
