Between the needs of actual paying clients (editing two dozen articles for a professional journal and writing a series of press releases) and the requests of family and friends (reviewing a CV and statement of purpose and offering input on proposed submissions for a 7th grade poetry workshop), my mind has been filled to the brim with words and writing for weeks now. (When you dream about your red pen, you know you’ve just about had enough.)
What’s gone by the wayside is my blog. It’s not that I couldn’t have found the time to crank out a couple of paragraphs; it’s more that I just didn’t have the mental energy needed to come up with an interesting topic (or at least an interesting take on a mundane topic). So that leads me to today’s question: is it better to blog intermittently when you have something of interest and value to share, or is it better to simply blog consistently regardless of the depth of your comments?
I don’t know the answer, and I look forward to reading yours.
