Project 15 - Day 22
How My Mind Works
Blogging is a lot like Seinfeld. (I'll bet you never saw that coming.) Unless you have a specific focus and/or goal to educate the masses on a particular topic, a blog is quite simply writing about nothing. Writing about nothing and making it seem like something. Writing about nothing, making it seem like something and doing it well is difficult.
Imagine the look of confused indignation on the face of the creative writing professor when one of his students looks him in the eye and states that her main ambition in life is to become a blogger; writing about nothing in order to soothe her artistic soul. Writing about nothing to entertain a following of ten with all of the details of her banal existence. Do they offer college courses in blogging? If they don't I am most certain one will be forthcoming.
Writing about nothing is an art form. It takes talent to come up with ideas about nothing day in day and day out, or month in and month out depending on your level of creativity. Take for instance myself, I have successfully written three blog posts in one week about Project 15. You now know that I am not good at math, that I procrastinate and that I have a little problem with commitment. I mean seriously, who cares? And yet you keep coming back. Or maybe I'm kidding myself and there really aren't ten faithful followers out there. I'll have to ponder that one for awhile.
And that's how it goes I have now taken several minutes of your busy day writing about absolutely nothing and in the process I have found something new to write about. (Anybody out there?)
I'm really good at this, maybe I should give blogging a try.
