It is time for a new sort of blogging. I haven't blogged much lately because I think I have to write something spectacular but it just isn't in me. Maybe I will "write" again and maybe even frequently but I feel I have been trying to force it which is exactly against my nature. If you try to force me to do something that I don't want to do, I am going to dig a hole, climb inside, and bury myself so you can't find me (shit - I won't even be able to find myself). This is EXACTLY what has been happening to me at work and home lately. I have found myself hiding instead of thriving.
Yes - I have been having great fun with the Snakespiration vlogs but those are literally 6-7 minutes of vlog, 5 minutes of processing, and then 30 minutes of YouTube uploading. Plus I WANT to do these - they are tons of fun. I just wish they were interactive with an audience - maybe it is time for a daily Hangout-on-air but those take a lot of time (planning and engagement with viewers).
So what is my solution - it is simple really. I am going to post a timestamped account of my day. I am going to log into blogger and write short snips of how I am feeling, what I am doing, what I am thinking, and what I want at that moment. What a great way of capturing my day! I am already doing this with short vlogs and instagram posts. I will just be adding words and timestamps. I think this is a brilliant way for blog, vlog, and just have a TON of fun instead of the stress of writing that amazing blog again.
Don't understand? Here is an example:
7:13am - Hanging out with the dogs on the couch by myself. I am beating myself up pretty badly right now for all the things I haven't done. It is an incredible day out and I should be blogging. What should I blog about? The dogs?
7:53am - the boys have joined me on the couch with the dogs. They are in a mood. a crazy mood and I need to feed them to end it. I need to finish this blog first. :)

You get the point from here....(I hope). I will still write the other blogs - I just need a way to focus my life and see where things aren't working (dig hole and bury myself).
