“I love to talk about nothing. It’s the only thing I know anything about.”
It’s true what they say – you can find anything on the web! I was trying to decide on a subject to blog about this week, but all I had circling in my brain was the echoing sound of bored crickets. Nary an idea surfaced. I blame it on the cold weather. It isn’t much fun sitting at a day job with a blanket across my knees because it is cold in the office. It tends to stifle creativity. Just sayin’.
So, I blew on my cold fingers to get them to do more than look like frozen claws and did a search to see what ideas I could find. Imagine my delight when pages of blog subjects were suddenly available and then imagine my consternation when I actually read some of those ideas! There was the usual stuff – you know, diets and exercise (yawn) But, there was also ghost-hunting and Hamburgers. Seriously! Ghost-hunting. Too bad I don’t know anything about it because it might be fun to write about. Hamburgers – not so much. Really, what is there to say about hamburger that hasn’t already been said?
Of course, if I really wanted to be creative I could tackle the subject of how to write a best seller. Trouble is, I don’t know the secret handshake yet. I am assuming there is one because otherwise writing a best seller is like hitting the winning lottery numbers, random and inexplicable.
If I was truly desperate I could write a letter to my sixteen year old self and give her some life altering advice. Nah, teenagers never listen, so why go to all that effort? Besides, if I altered my sixteen year old self with pithy advice then I wouldn’t be the same me here and now, right? It boggles my mind just to consider the ramifications.
After scanning long lists and being alternately amused and horrified I did hit upon the one subject I think I can manage really well. As a matter-of-fact after reading what I have written, I consider this blog post to be exactly right. What was the blog subject you ask… Brain dump. What’s on your mind right now.
Now aren’t you sorry you asked ? 🙂
