Happy New Year everyone. Nope. No resolutions this time. If I look back to the list from last year, I didn't achieve much so I'm not even going to embarrass myself by thinking up some more "goals" to miss. It's like making a to-do list that you know is far too long to achieve in the allotted time. A recipe for self-loathing.
Except for this - which actually might not be a resolution so much as a philosophy.
Don't over-think blogging.
I have read many posts over the past year in which the author agonizes over his or her reasons for blogging. Who cares? For most of us, it's obviously because we love to communicate and/or just love to write. Do we need more reasons? Heck, sometimes I don't even know why I'm on this planet or why I go through the various motions of my life, so figuring out my blogging motives is far too much work. Besides, does anyone out there really care why I choose to blog? Thought not.
Anyhoo - I'm still in Colorado and starting to think about packing up to return to the treadmill of my "real life", so until then -
Here's to 2009.
