I really do want to journal once a week, but some weeks I have nothing to say. It’s weird because I always have things on my mind, but they don’t always come together in a coherent way. I seem to hit these dry spells periodically. Blog, blog, blog, then . . . nothing. I kind of feel like this is a symptom of my introversion because in real life there are days when I have lots to say and other days when I don’t. I’m fine with that in terms of my blogging because I’m not actively trying to build a following.
This change in blogging attitude is probably another reason weeks can go by without me having anything to say. I used to be focused on pop culture topics and for a while, I was on a pretty good system of two topics a week. But that’s not where my head is anymore. There’s so many people talking pop culture that I’d be better off getting a job with one of them if that’s what I really wanted to write about. Now I prefer talking about me and what’s on my mind.
According to my stats, this blog isn’t found much by new people. On top of that, email subscribers can read a full post without clicking to the site. So I have no clue who reads this blog, who likes it, who doesn’t. It’s like shouting into a void of nothing. I like that. I like that someone might read a post, enjoy it, and move on without me knowing. Maybe that person comes back or maybe the one post was all he needed. Maybe he’s a big fan, but isn’t the type to comment. I can relate. I read plenty of articles without commenting because I’ve got nothing to add. But the idea that people are passing through the Internet and might be affected by something I wrote is pretty cool.
