Fits & Spurts

For the last 6 months I find myself blogging in what I would call “fits & spurts.”  [Or would I would have called fits and spurts before I googled it and found out that another term for intermittent is actually “fits & starts.”  Really???]

Anyway, intermittent blogging.  It’s not really what I want to do.  I want to be recording my life as I hum along.  I want to be recording my thoughts (profound or random, either one) as I have them.

And yet it is SO HARD to accomplish that.  Hard because it’s not just a matter of finding some time in my day, but also a matter of finding the right kind of time.  You know, the non brain dead kind of time.  The kind where words will actually come out of my brain and onto my screen through my fingers.  Coherent, meaningful words.  And some days that kind of time is in very short supply…

I’ve been trying to do some “batch” blogging, taking advantage of the moments where I do have time and words and planning several posts at once.  I have to keep reminding myself that in the end, it is what it is.  And since it’s all just for me anyway, that will have to be ok.


  1. Amen and amen! I've been struggling with the same frustratios... Especially because I feel like blogging actually really helps me clarify my thoughts and be more of the person I want to be.

  2. 'it is what it is.' yep. I'm with you both here... I feel this unexplainable drive to record, record, record, AND I feel so much better and clearer when I do, but it really is impossible to keep up. I try to keep my focus being 'i'm so glad I recorded that,' instead of 'i wish I'd recorded those other ten things.' :)

  3. Lindsay that's exactly it--an unexplainable drive. And that's a good way to look at it--thanks!
