When you blog, do you think in terms of public speaking? Picture yourself talking directly to your audience? I do. Sitting with people just chatting, perhaps sitting with an only friend sharing details and ideas I would normally keep to myself. Sometimes I picture an audience, when I talk about cooking. At times I have no specific image, just a sensation of a person. But it’s almost always to someone. Like a conversation, one sided, but happening none the less.
Some of the writing I read on WordPress are directly from the heart and soul. I like those the most. I enjoy Instragram and Snapchat, it’s nice to see people and their interests. They say a picture is worth 1000 words. So many blogs I read are worth millions. It’s a safe(ish) place to share what we normally might not.
So lately I have been trying to “live in the moment”. Neither obsessing over the past nor the future. It’s far more challenging to me than I thought it would be, but it’s working. I don’t get quite as spun up.
