What Gets You Worked Up Enough To Blog About It?
Writing this weekly column for the Blog Herald has been a new challenge for me â€” Iâ€™m not used to blogging â€œon demand.â€ On my own blog, Publishing 2.0, I just waiting until something gets me sufficiently worked up that the blog post practically writes itself. Because of that dynamic, I also have a pile of unfinished posts that just petered out â€” if the momentum runs out, I typically find the post wasnâ€™t worthwhile anyway. Iâ€™ve also gone days without posting because nothing got me sufficiently worked up (in the old days they used to call it writers block).
(P.S. Sorry for the recent blogging silence, it’s not for lack of getting worked up — I’ve been laid low by a virus that has been the pathological equivalent of the nine circles of hell.)
