So I completely forgot to post last week — I was at a friend’s wedding, I hadn’t drafted a post, and there was no way in hell I could write on while at the wedding. Mea culpa. Trying to keep a regular posting schedule is tough, to be honest; juggling between posting regularly and getting actual work done means that I often have no idea what to write about until the last moment.
It’s a learning experience, to say the least. If anything, I’ll have to learn how to balance things out, and take every opportunity I can get to write out something, at least as a draft.
Which brings me to this post.
I re-read my last post, and boy do I have a bunch of problems post-facto: like, why is that post so boring? Is it a topic I should write about more, or avoid? Should I have spent more time editing it, fleshing out my points? Or should I have restructured it altogether? Am I trying too hard to sound like I know what I’m talking about?
In hindsight, that last post was terrible; there’s a bunch of things I could have done better. I always say hindsight is 20-20 though, so I’ll try not to be too harsh on myself.
Re-reading that post made me realize that I have no idea what my voice here is. Profanity, or no-profanity? What about writing style? Should I try to write more drily? Jokes, Y/N?
If you know me, and have talked to me in person, I do tend towards swearing, unless in the company of small children— and even then, I sometimes forget that I am and still end up saying some colorful things. So I might be a little more profane here, just because I think that reflects who I am more.
The other thing is writing style, which as I said before: I haven’t written in a while, so I’m still struggling a bit. I’m also struggling to find a bunch of good topics to write about on my blog: I have a few ideas and topics I want to write about, but I’m not sure if I can post them yet. And the code I’ve written recently is fairly boring stuff, nothing really particularly useful, although maybe there’s a bunch of things I might be able to write about if I think harder about it.
Maybe next week. We’ll see.
There’s a bunch of things that I’ve been busy with, in relation to certain Big Life Changes that I can’t talk about just yet. It’s been quite an exciting month or so, so maybe I’ll write about that? Who knows (I do).
All I can say is: Adulting is hard.
See you next week.
