On the frustrations of blogging

I’ve been irritated with my blog. I’m not happy with the aesthetics and I’m frustrated with my lack of motivation. I think most of my frustration comes from the fact that I’ve allowed myself to think that I’m trying to write for other people instead of myself.

If I had a nickle for every time I started a blog post then deleted it, I’d have a lot of nickels. I start typing away and inevitably my brain starts to think “do any of my friends really want to hear what I have to say about public transit, Nashville, cycling, politics, religion or those duck dynasty assholes?”.

A friend once told me that I just have to write for myself. I knew that… that’s what I used to do but I just forgot so thanks for the reminder.
