Posting here had been delayed, but I'm back

I have not posted a blog in too long a period of time. There are a few reasons for this. Most of them revolve around reluctance to write drivel. There seems to be so much drivel written these days and I have not wanted to add to it.

One solution that may work for me involves choosing a specific person, in my head, and write what may make sense to that one person. If others “listen in” it is acceptable to me, at least now. It’s not so much that I have nothing to say. I keep thinking and continue to have a dialog, at least in my head. It is more difficult, I think, for introverts, and especially male introverts, to write their thoughts to groups of others.

One way I can get past the tendency to keep my thoughts to myself is to begin writing to so-and-so. Perhaps that is you today. What do you think about that?

Whatever the reason, I am now back in a different frame of mind and intend to keep posting to this blog.

By all means write as if to me.

I first became aware of blogs when a friend of mine created one as a means of keeping in touch after both she and I moved away from Vancouver. I started my own blog in response to hers, but in the beginning the lag time between posts was extrem. It wasn't until I wrote a post directed to her, that I found my blogging voice (she even commented, this sounds like one of your email updates I get ever so often). I now only rarely blog directly to my long distant friend, but it took time to bind my blogging voice.

So your method my friend is quite sound.

Good luck
I'll be listening,
