Blogging?

I have a love/hate relationship with blogging. I've said it before, it is not my specialty. That being said, I am determined to keep getting back on the horse. I think part of the problem is that I get nervous about sharing too many opinions on the internet. People get too opinionated, and then they get attacked for sharing those opinions that are supposedly trying to present themselves as facts, or just that they have the "wrong" opinion in general.

So, I'll just say this right now: what I write here is usually going to be stream of consciousness OPINION and I will not try to pass that off as fact. If I talk about writing, I'll just state it how *I* see it, and I am fully aware that what I see and think and feel doesn't count for everyone.

And I'm okay with that, by the way. I'm okay if you don't hold the same thoughts as I do on the subject. There's one bit of blog going on about how writers shouldn't write so many books in a year because obviously that means they're not going to be very good. Opinion based on one writers experience. I'm not going to be writing things like that, or at least trying not to. Going on that same topic, though, I might say it's important to keep the quality up and that I've seen authors lose said quality by trying to put out books in a short turn-around period. Hey, I've done this myself and I am deeply ashamed of it. However, it is not my place to put a timeline on that for anyone.

See? Opinion, pure opinion. Pure stream of consciousness. Right now, those thoughts might be disjointed because I'm still recovering from a "traumatic" brain injury. Mild concussion thanks to a car accident, and just when I think I'm better, I wonder if I'm not. Having never had one of these before, I can't tell what is a result of the accident and what is just me being grumpy/tired/blech. Because I do get tired, grumpy, and especially hangry, often.

I had been a part of a blogging contest for a while, but I dropped out because I was feeling too disjointed and blech with my blogging abilities. However, the organizer of this contest did mention how continuing to exercise my brain in such a fashion might be beneficial to my recovery, so I don't want to give up blogging all together - and I did say I was going to try to be more connected with my audience. Still, part of why I dropped out is because it's hard for me to be able to think completely concretely and when it comes to things like contests I'm incredibly picky.

So this is me saying, yet again, that I am going to try to blog regularly. I'm not sure what about, and I'm not sure how this is going to go, or if I'll drop off the face of the planet - again. What I can say is that I'm going to try, and hopefully get back to thinking like a solid human being.

We'll see what happens, right? This is my first step into getting back to writing. It's been a lot harder to do than I originally anticipated.
