I was trying to decide whether ’tis better to blog about something just for the sake of blogging regularly, even when one has nothing of great interest about which to blog.
Then I skimmed through my archives for inspiration, and realised that’s what I’ve been doing most days anyway.
Anyway, the thing is, I’ve been very busy preparing things for my youth group, women’s group and various other things, not to mention job-hunting and, oh yes, actually going to work. Plus, somewhere in the middle of all that, I’ve had to find time to be with my friends, talk on the phone and by email to far-off friends, and also do things like eat, sleep and breathe. Blogging is a very enjoyable pastime, but one that quickly becomes incredibly frustrating when, for example, you find yourself with a spare half hour of a morning, and can’t think of a single witty, thought-provoking or otherwise entertaining thing to blog about.
So, here’s the deal. You’re going to inspire me. Yes, you, right there. When I get home from work today, I want the comments section of this post to be packed full of interesting suggestions for a blog topic. Is there a mystery you’ve been pondering, and you think I might have an opinion (e.g. the sock issue)? Is there a serious issue on your mind, one that I could attempt to analyse (and amusingly miss the point entirely)? Is there something you want to know about me, like my true feelings for Dirk? Or would you even care to pick a random word or phrase followed by the word ‘discuss’, in the style of school essays?
It’s up to you. The next blog post is all yours. I’m making myself very vulnerable with this request, because I risk coming home to an empty comments box and dealing with the crushing realisation that no one cares. I’m appealing to you, the public, for inspiration. Throw me a lifeline.
You know I’d do the same for you, if you lost your muse…
