To blog or not to blog… Is that the question!

Sunday, October 10th, 2010


Turn around these days and you’re bound to run into probably around a dozen blogs (at least!).  Seems that everyone these days has some kind of blog.  I even encouraged a friend of mine (who… err ahhem… shall remain nameless) to set up his own.  It’s easy, a piece of cake, just write about anything and everything that comes across your mind.  It sounds good in theory, but in practise a familiar nemesis rears its head from the shadows…  Writers block!

Who would think that having an unlimited source of topics to choose from for writing about, causes paralysis of the mind!

I’m not exactly an expert in writing by any stretch of the imagination, and I can’t remember the last time I’ve had to do any kind of ‘formal’ writing, but it’s incredible the amount of effort a simple little blog (or even an entry in a blog!) can take.  You have to take your hat off to writers who write on a regular basis.  I’m envious of those that can sit down, and in what seems only a few minutes later, almost an entire thesis is written!

So to those regular bloggers out there, a new found respect has been forged from the depths of mental anguish in attempting to string together a few simple words.  One can only hope that the years of cerebral atrophy can be reversed somehow in some way…
