As you are guessing, I am not so good with conformity. Posting to a ‘set’ structure really isn’t me and frankly, a tad constraining. Blogging structure like, on Tuesdays we post about travel. Wednesday, well Wednesdays are wordless; but you can throwback your Thursday’s ARHHHHHHH. Yes YES, I know I can set my blog up how ever I wish too – there are no true set in stone rules or guidelines. But after some time of blogging, certain styles and structure form; especially with certain types of blogs. Sadly, the longer you blog; these structure become very clear and very standardised – and very done. Even the themes and hashtags that we all use – they are, in a way – restricting our creativity.
But it seems the more I try to conform, the less I post. And to be honest what is the point of towing the line when I am not enjoying it. Especially when it seems that when I am free writing I seem to post frequently and most importantly – I feel I enjoy my blog as much as I hope the people that drop by do. After a bit of time away and reflecting a few thoughts on exactly WHY I blog – I have decided to throw out all forms of conformity – and just get back to why I started in the first place. From today I am going to blog whatever drops into my crazy uncomforted mind. No longer will I constrict myself, my creatively nor my blog to travelling Tuesdays and wordless Wednesday’s. HECK, I might throw caution into the wind and do a WEEK of wordlessness – why should Wednesday be so lucky and wordless? :O.
Just think of the scandal – no words for a week! Then totally confuse everyone and write poems or recipes for the following week. What is better? Blogging to a set structure – where posts are forced and infrequent. Or blogging for pleasure, sharing my adventures and creative self. Getting back to the grass roots of just what WordPress was all about – back when people blogged from the pleasure of sharing and not the dream of recognition from the masses – which it seems like some blogs are trying to achieve.
So from today who knows where/what I will post. Because, truthfully, its about the journey that we all take; and not the end destination.
