Making myself write

I have always been enamored with the idea of keeping a journal. I have notebooks that from 20+ years ago that have musings and observations on my life that I dust off every now and then. The problem for me has always been consistency. At the best of times, I've only ever managed to maintain writing for a few weeks before I just stopped. And then several months to years would pass before I would start up again.Same thing with blogging. I started a myspace account a few years ago and maintained posting a couple of times a week for a few months but then just stopped. I opened this account on blogger some months ago (Thanks technogreek!) with the intention of doing a weekly posting but never even got one single post off.

All of which brings us to now.

I figure that part of my problem in the past has been trying to write about all the minutia of my life. Really, who cares? Based on the responses to postings I've done in the past, nobody. That is to say, nobody responded. However, when I would make postings on things that I had interest in, (films, comics, art, music, porn. You know, your basic "classic" topics.), it would generate some kind of response. Not always positive but a response none the less.

With that in mind, I'm going to try and maintain a weekly posting about the things in my life that have been of interest to me. Maybe it will be a card game that caught my attention or a dvd that I bought that was particularly good or excruciatingly bad. Perhaps I'll write a listing of the best comics to come out in the week or maybe it won't be anything more than a lazy top ten list. In any case, I am determined to write at least once a week.
If your reading this, I hope you'll come back and join me. But remember, as my quote says, I'm just another guy on the web who thinks he has something to share with the world. I hope you'll find it of interest.
