    Quantity over quality

    It's not exactly a resolution, because we know how well I fare with those (if you're new here, spoiler: not very), but I promised myself that I would try to do two things about blogging this year. The first was blog more, because posting twice a month is a scant step up from not posting at all. The other was to take myself less seriously.

    I can hear you laughing from here - because obviously I don't take myself seriously at ALL. What I mean is, I will stress less about whether the post is actually GOOD. I mean, I will try to make it good. For you guys. But sometimes, well, it's just going to be what's going on in my brain. Except in post form.

    So regarding the first pledge, I bought a little keyboard dock for my tablet and told myself I'd go off on Sunday afternoons and sit in a coffee shop somewhere and blog. That hasn't happened yet. I mean, it's Sunday afternoon, and I'm sitting in front of my teeny keyboard attempting to blog, but I'm in my kitchen. It's cold out there and I don't feel like buying a $5 coffee shop calorie-fest.

    Seriously, this keyboard is REALLY fucking small and annoying to type on. Seems like I'm doing okay with the "mental vomit" part of my resolution. So that's the deal. You may see more of me, it may not be that good. Or maybe you won't, and it will. Or! Maybe you won't, and it STILL won't be that good.

    Actually, that seems likely.

    Aren't you glad I share these things with you?

    'Yes!' I can say without hesitation. I am glad. I am spending my Sunday writing content for an optometrist's website and I was so happy to see your post in my reader. I needed a laugh, let me tell you.

    I have long since given up on trying to figure out what readers like and what they don't like. Shit that I think is really good, that shares a vulnerable part of myself, no one seems to like. I shit out a post about my cat and everyone goes bonkers. I really don't get it. So instead, I just kinda throw spaghetti at the wall. I write about whatever the fuck I like and see what happens. It's a lot less stressful than trying to figure out what people actually want to read about. As long as it curses at least once and doesn't include a picture of my twat it can't be that bad, right?

    I guess what I'm trying to say is I feel you.

    Yeah. Notsomuch with the resolutions here either... but if I DID make any, blogging more would be on the list... I'm gonna shoot for once a week.

    I should also start READING blogs again... once a week for that too....

    I aim for 2 posts a week. Any more, people get sick of me. Any less, people think I'm dead. As for content, I don't aim for anything. That way the bar is so low, I'll hit it, even if it's only to trip over it. :)

    Well I, for one, am never disappointed. By the way, ever tried typing a blog post on a Blackberry keyboard? Talk about annoying!

    P.S. If you do figure out what readers consider "good" writing, share the secret won't ya? I could use the help.

    I don't post often, but I have to say, your posts are always funny and enjoyable to read!

    I've been blogging less and less and crappier and crappier. It's nice to know I can depend on you to do the same. Makes me feel less like a loser and more like a cool kid.
