It has been over a week since my last blog post. This has been down to a number of factors, but mainly being busy and not having the time to spend thinking about blogging and writing a post.
Actually, reading that first paragraph out loud, that sounds like an excuse. There are 24 hours in a day and, once you allow for work and sleep, you are left with a fair chunk of time, certainly enough to write a blog post.
The real reason I have not posted (I think) is, due to how busy I have been, I have not allowed myself to be inspired, and when I am inspired is when I feel like I have something worthwhile to write.
I have come up with a theory I am going to try over the next few weeks. I am going to have a list of topics to blog about. This list will start with maybe 15 topics. When I feel inspired I will pick a topic and write about it. When I am busy, or not feeling like blogging, I will just add a couple of topics to the list.
For me a lot of the mental energy is expended in the process of thinking about what to blog about. If I am not in the mood then I find it difficult to think of a subject. I am hoping this ongoing list will enable me to choose a topic to write about more easily. This will allow me to take advantage of those times when I am feeling inspired but only have a limited time to write, as the subject is already taken care of.
Of course, like every theory, the proof is in the pudding. I am going to run with this one for a few weeks and see how it goes.
