So I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about what I’m doing blogging.Â Over the last 7-8 months, it has become one of my top interests and yet the last few weeks I have been having a really hard time with it.
The problem, as usual, is me.Â I’ve been holding back, not really sure how to express my views or ideas.Â The problem stems from my discomfort of conflict I think.Â While I shy from it, I also don’t hold back once the ‘mud’ starts flinging.Â More often than not, I end up getting frustrated, mad and sorry that I was not able to communicate effectively.
But that discomfort has held me back, and I want to talk about more than I have in the past.Â I want to discuss things, be a real part of theÂ conversation rather than parroting others, which I feel like I’ve done.Â I want to posit my opinion and viewpoint on a topic rather than simply put a link to a cool post somewhere.
My limited exchange of posts and links with a number of bloggers has really whetted my appetite for real interactive communication.Â I’ve found a lot of great blogs, with a lot of great viewpoints.Â I’ve learned a lot in the last few months, most of it from blogs I’ve followed from the A-List to the Z-List (that’s me!), and everywhere in between.
All the concepts on blogging, the ideas for revenue generation, the fun stuff, the serious stuff – its really moved me down the road to a point where I thought I already was.Â For quite awhile I thought I was participating, but looking back I think that I’ve only been ‘lurking’, if you will.Â Kind of participating around the edges, though not enough to really provoke much response, or to start a thread.
This is where you’ll see a difference in what I write – this is where I’m going to let my passion for blogging, mobile communications (and more) explore to its fullest.
