7a1I did it. Now finally over to my new blog. On this blog I posted one blogpost every day for a whole month. I can hardly believe it myself but it is true. I started on July 20 and today is August 20. Maybe it is even one day to much, but he, I am getting used to it, so it is by far not as difficult as it used to be.

I was thinking what I would have posted if not for this challenge. I am not sure how much it would have been but I AM sure what I would NOT have posted. At least 75%.

I am rather certain that 75% of what I posted would never have seen daylight. Maybe I would have written some of them (although not many I am sure) but then instead of hitting the publish button I would have pushed the button ‘save draft’. And would have never published it.

Many times it felt like rambling. And most of the time I did not do the post I had planned to do. Because of time pressure and not being satisfied with what I wrote about the subject I wanted to write about, I often had to write whatever came to mind at first.

And strangely enough it often went by itself. I just started to type and 10 minutes later I had a blogpost. Searching for a suiteble picture, that kind of expressed my blogpost, took often more time than the writing itself.

And thinking about that subject was also no problem, because I did not really think about it. I just started. And really loved it most of the time.

Except for some moments, that I had enough of the pressure of posting every day. And thought of quiting, because so what! No need to do it anyway. But I am very happy I went on with it.

But even more happy that it is over now. From now on I can again post when I want and if I do not feel like it, well then not.

And I can now go on with my new selfhosted blog, MindStructures, really look foreward to do that. And again spent more time on making graphics, construction and navigation part than on the writing.

But I am really so very glad the writing did go so much easier this month. Because no matter what, it is the only way to get my thinking clear.


Screenshots and Comments

mindstructures2I am totally exited, this was a great day. Well, bloggingwise that is. Not so much for anything else, as I have been on the computer non stop from early this morning and got nothing else done.

But it was worth it, because I can now make screenshots, opened another account and weblog and found a way to easy comment on other blogs. So many great advantages because of one clear moment. Read the rest of this entry »

No idea where I am going

August 15, 2009

labyrintI wish the month was over. So I said it. As much as I love blogging, it is getting far and far to much to do a blogpost every day.

I have no time to think anymore, to get it all in line with what I wanted to do anyway with this blog.

I feel all I do is just rambling. There is no structure, no coherence, it all is nothing but loose pieces put together. And I am really wondering why I continue then. And not just stop. Read the rest of this entry »

Writing with flow

August 13, 2009

P6030515You just got to love Twitter. Today was such a day that I found one weblog after another where they talked about blogging. Well, not just about blogging, but about how to write on your blog. And if there is anything in the world that I need to learn, it is just that, writing.

I just can not seem to find the right way to do that. Writing purely from myself seems a lot like rambling. And integrating thoughts of others make me stumble and struggle. So the blogpost I found today about How to write with flow, was exactly what I needed. Read the rest of this entry »
