I knew when I started a blog that I was unlikely to be a regular blogger anytime soon. There was just too much going on in my life, and, for at least a little longer, there still will be. The first year I thought that if I could get one blog a month out that would be great. The second year, I thought one blog per season would be great. The third year, it got to be December 28, and lots of blogs had been started, but none posted. This got me to thinking a little about what exactly a blog is.
Of course, it can be different things to different people. For me, in monologue form it is a frozen conversation. If we chatted about a given subject, what might it read like if the through line were removed and edited? I want to post that. What are the clear ninety seconds of thought on any given topic.
And I think that is what my incredibly sporadic blog has been. Ninety seconds here and there.
This is not a resolution. (Perhaps resolutions will be the topic of a future blog.) I find I cannot keep track of more than a few resolutions at a time, and the approaching New Year will no doubt cause me to renew my resolves regarding healthy lifestyle, savoring friends and family, and being kinder to the world. But I will try to remember more often to grab ninety seconds of conversation or monologue and throw it in the freezer.
And to thaw it out here, more often than I did in 2017.
