I need a style. Not in the fashion sense, I doubt I’ll ever really pull that off, but blog-style. There are many out there, but how do you choose one?
- Do I comment on current affairs?
- Do I write about the minutiae of my life?
- Should I post regular photos?
- Should I talk about friends or family?
- Should I post reviews?
Firstly, don’t worry, I won’t be doing the second one, it would bore the crap out of me too.
I don’t really keep up with current affairs so that one’s out as well. I do take a lot of photos, but too many to really blog about. My parents don’t really get the concept of blogging (macro- or micro-) so talking about them a lot probably wouldn’t go down well and the same may go for some friends.
I’d love to properly review books and films, in proper essay style, but I never have the patience to sit down and do it. I need to exercise my brain more in that respect. I haven’t written an academic essay in six years and that last one wasn’t great.
Where does that leave me? A bit of everything? I need to allot time to everything just to try and fit it all in. I have #abcdvd, downloads, books, TiVo and who knows what else to squeeze into a day (and for the next four weeks I’m supposed to be making a Sabretooth costume from scratch)
Actually, the costume is something I can blog. If the rest of the material turns up.
I managed 9 days of 365 photos before forgetting. Actually, I did remember, but then I forgot again. Same with the picture a day of myself, although I haven’t managed a flattering one yet. Sometimes I’m just a little too OCD about the neatness of these things. So what if it doesn’t start on January 1st?
