I was thinking today. I do sometimes. I was thinking along the lines of, what is this blog about? What is it's reason for being. I know I am doing it because I enjoy it, but it doesn't seem to have a central theme. I am feeling that it should have something to make it stand out, but I'm blowed if I know what.
The problem I have is I am too scatterbrained to stick with anything for any length of time. I come and go like a yoyo on a string. So a themed blog probably wouldn't last long. Easily bored is the best way of putting it.
Mind you this need for constant new outlets, this fear of boredom, does tend to make me get on with things fast. I never spend too long on a painting for instance, and I think I wrote my book in quick time. Simply because if I spend too long on something there is a good chance it may not get finished.
Do you remember those stick chairs I was making last year? I could have had a nice little part time earner there. The year before it was bird tables out of reclaimed timber. They were so popular, but in the end I gave up because I got bored with making them. Even though they were all different. And the quick portraits, I have had enough of them for the moment, and yet they are a good source of cash. I am a hopeless case.
This blog of mine. Although I have applied myself to it quite diligently these last couple of years, it doesn't seem to attract many new readers lately. I suppose that is what I want. More readers. I suppose that is what all writers want.
Oh well. I am happy enough in my own little corner of Blogland. Even if it is undefined. As long as I know that you are out there, and you of course and absolutely you too. Especially you. I shall carry on doing my best to entertain you.
|I was hoping for a read of that newspaper Bonnie, but I won't disturb you.|
I have just indented the beginning of each paragraph. I wonder if that will add anything special to my words. I don't normally indent them, but tonight I just felt like taking a risk, and living dangerously. I need to be more cutting edge.
|I know you are not really asleep Sadie, I can see you looking.|
By the way do you remember the Ramshackle Gallery I am making? Well the good news is, I hope to have it open for business on Saturday. I wonder how long before the novelty wears off?
The time is half past midnight. Sadie the German Shepherd and Bonnie the ginger cat are asleep. They feel safe in the knowledge that Mac the pup will not disturb them. Especially Bonnie, she really did not appreciate our little visitor. She is happy now.
I think it is time for me to visit the land of nod also. Good night, God bless.
