Sometimes The Best Posts Ramble

  • I Am On Fire- Bruce Springsteen
  • My City of Ruin- Bruce Springsteen
  • Ain’t Got You- Bruce Springsteen
  • Crossroads- Cream
  • Summertime- Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong
  • A Little Less Conversation- Elvis Presley
  • Wonder of Wonders- Fiddler On The Roof Soundtrack

Sometimes the best posts are nothing more than an exercise in free writing where you let the words roll off your tongue and dribble down the page without any concern for whether people will read, comment or share them.

Those are the moments when you set yourself free and begin to understand the kind of depth and joy writing can bring when it is given freely and without regard for what comes after.

It is when you find out what lies under the surface of your mind and gain a degree of clarity you might not otherwise have.

There Are Too Many Rules

Blogging has too many rules, requirements and restrictions. If you try to follow them all you will suck the life out of you and kill the joy of just writing.

This should be fun. This should be a celebration and if it is not it should be because you have chosen to write about a serious topic because you wanted to. It shouldn’t be because you are trying to make sure you came up with the most incredible piece of content to be stuffed with keywords and matched with an exceptional headline that people can’t help but click on.

I Want My Words To Be Like A Song

I want my words to be like a song that people can’t help but sing. I want it to be catchy and clever and silly and whimsical.

I want it to be fun.

That is why I am here. That is why I do this.

It is fun.

It is cathartic.

It is mine.

    This makes a lot of sense to me.

    I hate that there are rules and restrictions. I want to break out of them. I’m not sure I stick to them in any case but the fact that they’re there irritates me!

    If it’s not fun, what’s the point in doing it?

    I don’t know if it’s fun for me. It’s more like childbirth for me. Once it’s out I can’t remember the labor pains and I go back for more. LOL! I know that it has to come out, but …well, just but….
