I need a blog like I need a hole in the head.  As long as that hole is a mouth we will be ok.  Sure my blog may not be oxygen or food but it is still important to my well being and therefore important.

I want to write.  I need to write.  My whole website is taking far too much time… as a hobby, but just enough as a business.  And a business is what I am running.  This discipline of writing every day is starting to take hold and become a habit.  The online friends that I am making are resources that give me support and inspiration.  Most people here in Blogistan will give that support freely and quickly, as long as there is reciprocation somewhere along the line.

There is a list of people that I now think of as friends on this whole internet thing.  I like to read what they have to say, I like to interact with them and I hope they like to read what I have to say and not just think I am an annoying little insect that can just be brushed aside.  I will not be brushed aside!  I will come over to your house and….  wait that was a dream.

I am finally starting to figure out my life and my blog.  It is not finished, there are always little tweaks to the site or things to add or make more ascetically pleasing.  There are new and exciting things to read and get involved in.  There is lots of writing to be done.  There are stories to format and tweak into e-books that will start making me money.  There are newsletters to format even though there are no subscribers (sign up here or I will come over to your…:))

This post is short, there will be longer ones.  Most of them lately have been longer.  And longer fiction on Saturday.  And e-books that are not just reprints of blog posts but actually thought out, well formatted pieces that people will actually read and not stick in an obscure downloads folder on their computer.

I need a blog like I need a hole in the head.  A funny expression, but now it feels like I need my blog or there is a hole somewhere in the core of me.

Until Later Loyal Citizens of Blogistan,

Justin

  1. Dude, I wake up thinking about blogging. It’s instantaneous. I know what you mean…like a hole in the head.

    • some days it’s like hey we should *blog* go for a drive and *blog* then get some *blog* ice cream. The balance with the family is going to be hard when our blogs take off.

  2. Dude your site is coming along lovely 🙂

    I can’t wait for the day when I can work on my content all day every day – it’s going to be awesome.

  3. Content is great. But content alone doesn’t mean anything. You have to be noticed. That is turning out to be the harder task for me.

    • that is true also. you can have 10000 words of pulitzer prize winning articles and it is worth nothing if you cant get people to read it. getting people here is the harder part.
      good to see you again Ralph!

      • I agree that attracting people can be really rough. It’s difficult to write those 10,000 words of Pulitzer Prize winning articles if you aren’t seeing people reading it and responding to it!

        Keep up the good fight, you’re not alone. 🙂

  4. i agree- get that all the time

  5. The Court of Blogistan notes your sagacity.

    Carry on.
    .-= Dave Doolin´s last blog ..Consistency – A 7th Characteristic of Trust Building (Everyone can do this) =-.

  6. Justin, you’re right: the balance between blogging/family is hard to get right. My kids understand that mama is obsessed with “writing stories on the internet”, and yet they insist on being fed. Tyrants.

    • I hate it when I realize that lunch time was 2 hours ago and I have been wrapped up in something. My son says “it’s ok Daddy is trying to make money for us.” I love 6 year olds
