I’m a million miles away from my blog at the moment and can’t seem to get a ticket on the next caravan back. I have started a half a dozen different topics and trashed each one. On the other hand, I feel all wound up, heart is pounding, and anxious. I need to write.
Nothing seems to be inspiring me today. There have been a million posts about 9/11 and I don’t think mine would be any different than half of those. Sure, I could write about how the world, not just America, changed on that day, but that’s like beating a dead horse. I could say what I feel about the dark era we were thrust into that day, but hell with that, we have enough finger pointers on both sides of THAT fence.
I almost wrote about how I nearly flushed this blog down the drain while trying something radically new to me. Watching the blog not reload after trying to to re-install the back up was frustrating to say the least. In the end, it all came back up and was really nothing to get excited about.
The dogs probably could have gotten some blog time if I felt motivated enough to give them the time. I mean, the little Amstaff, all thirty pounds of her, is baiting the ninety lb. Lab mix into a game of tag. Chloe, the Amstaff, runs up and jumps to nip at Pooh’s jaw, only to land in a ready to run position. Then Pooh lunges as Chloe steps just out of reach. All this on a hardwood floor, so there is a lot of action, but no progress.
I know if I went into Squidoo I could find a lens or two to write about, or maybe I could blog on about Factor Y, but nah.
There is one topic that touched me today, an ongoing one, and that is one that my dear friend JaguarJulie has been blogging about at her Topicality blog. Julie has be covering the topic of etiquette. In particular, online etiquette, and I think she is dead on when she states that we should behave the same way do online that we do off.
The problem I see is that some of us already do, always have, and always will. But, that doesn’t mean we can’t politely point out the fault in that behavior. We ALL have to share the same space, cyber or otherwise, so why don’t some of you grow up or get out.
So, I guess I need to find my creative genius to find something of value to blog about.
