The Blinking Cursor

By jer979!! | | 30 Sep 2022

The prompt for this blog is: “What’s on your mind?”

What’s on my mind is trying to figure out if I want to stay committed to the daily practice of blogging.

On the one hand, it’s a meditation of sorts and probably for that reason, it’s worth it.

On the other hand, sometimes it’s a grind and I can’t figure out what I want to write about and so I just stare at the blinking cursor for a bit.

That blinking cursor, when you have to write something, and, in particular, when you tell yourself “oh, this needs to be a major insight/brilliant,” can be intimidating.

Once upon a time, my blog was (or at least I thought it was), the primary marketing activity for my consulting business.

Today, it’s not that.

Heck, I’m pretty sure that almost no one reads it since I moved off of Word Press and on to Mirror.

And you know what?

The few hundred people who got my blog every day?

No one has said “oh, I miss reading your blog.”

Which tells me something.

And it tells me that, as I said once upon a time, the blog is my workshop.

No one needs to even see or care what happens in there.
