Blogging is not easy
If you check in on this blog regularly or occasionally, you’ve noticed that recently all I’ve posted are Linkathons.
I’ve neglected my writing, certainly, and that’s mainly because I’ve gone through a season where I had nothing to say.
I’d like to pick it back up. However, I don’t want to write anything just for the heck of it, just so I can see my name and my “stuff” on the web.
Blogging is not easy in the sense that while anyone can start one, and anyone can write an article, not everyone can write articles that people will want to read and consider helpful, useful, encouraging, challenging and/or thoughtful.
I wish to be the latter, not the former.
Anyone can get a megaphone and yell out random nonsense for all the world to hear.
Not everyone can speak and be listened to.
Again, I wish to be the latter. And in order for that to be the case, I have to have something worth saying.
And if you don’t have anything substantial to say, it’s probably best to remain silent, and not spout off randomness, until you do have something substantial to say.
