OK, I finally got motivated to post... about why I'm not posting. Here's a very entertaining look at Blog Depression, a Public Service Pamphlet.
There is a growing epidemic in the cyberworld. a scourge which causes more suffering with each passing day. as blogging has exploded and, under the stewardship of the veterans, the form has matured more and more bloggers are finding themselves disillusioned, dissatisfied, taking long breaks, and in many cases simply closing up shop. this debilitating scourge ebbs and flows but there is hardly a blogger among us who has not felt it’s dark touch. we’re speaking, of course, about blog depression.
One of the symptoms I thought was pretty funny (and appropriate for me) is Content Anxiety.
If the simple act of reading a magazine fills you with a deep sense of disquiet, if you break out in hives, or if you find yourself inexplicably weeping, it may be Content Anxiety, in which you subliminally equate every piece of information as a potential piece of blog content.
Thank goodness, I'm not alone! And now that I've actually overcome my resistance to writing my first blog post in a month, I realize that it's not as bad as I'd expected. I may actually start blogging again; wonder of wonders.
