Yes, I think what I’m after is short-form blogging. (Okay, I know, I wrote the last post was ridiculously long, but it was different: marking the end of a two-month process and in some ways the end of a chapter much longer than that). But the time comes for writers when they need a change, a poet can cover the centuries in two sentences then a short-form blogging could cover much more than expected.
The long post was actually because I’ve swallowed way too much blogging advice, and my rebellious inner writer is demanding permission not to craft eye-catching headlines, work in keywords, link in the right places, hunt down images to rest your weary eyes, paraphrase the words that are not right fit and all the other paraphernalia of blogging which gets way too far in the way of simply: thinking out loud and sharing our words.
It might be because I know I want, need, to develop this site into something different now I’ve developed a home that feels right, really right, for my more philosophical, poetical, and soulful creative output; and now that I’ve done the hard work of slicing the longer articles here into something (hopefully) useful for readers new and old.
I think what I’m looking for is a space
To share some thoughts on the process
To keep working through the snares and tangles of perfectionism
To sift and organize my thoughts
To stay connected with all of you and also, perhaps to enjoy the pleasure of writing in short form, unencumbered by writing “should”s and “have to”s.
Yes, I think I’m going to play with short form, and see where it takes me. I’m just going to play with the short form. But you could do the same as well, especially if you are new to blogging, start with shorter form, short blogs will help you organize yourself quickly, but do not always stick to the short-form as it will make you habitual and you might feel difficulties changing over time.
