Making New Year’s Resolutions, Part 1, choosing not to.
This year I made no resolutions or Intentions or Goals about this blog and blogging. (I made other kinds of resolutions.) The blog format as far as I know is maybe the only format that, besides allowing for organized people and writers who publish to flourish, actually allows that for people who:
-Don’t have much regular organization motivations or abilities
-Can’t write a book that they want to write, so they blog
-Can’t write a book because of the middle and end follow through and making sense aspects required of even writing a chapter
-Get very enthusiastic at beginnings and have tons of ideas they don’t fully implement, so they start something and intend to post in a series and never make the effort to continue the series, so it’s not really a series of posts, (latest example: my post on Kwanza that seemed to intend to post each day on one of the principles…)
-write sentences that are too long and don’t edit them
-Don’t even blog in an organized way and finish posts abruptly
-Get bored quickly and move around from topic to topic with no apparent logic
That’s my interpretation of why I’m still blogging in 2016. The low expectations and acceptance of whatever you want to express in whatever way you want to express it makes blogging so great for us people who do the above-mentioned things.
Therefore, I won’t come up with some new idea about this blog and then give it up after an excited start.
