Is Blogging every day even possible?

I have friends who are prolific bloggers. They write daily, vividly, hysterically, pithy missives that go out into the world and change how I personally view everything. They are the people who talk and write with singular voices that you just want to invite to lunch and have them chat with you into the evening.

When the movie Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang came out, the outtakes made me crave this with Robert Downey, Jr and Val Kilmer. Smart, witty, self deprecating charmers who pulled no punches and made you laugh and think.

There are writers who I adore, Jenny Lawson, Mary Roach, Katherine Dunn, Truman Capote, Ann Patchett, Bill Bryson, Groucho Marx, Isabel Allende, Haven Kimmel…

Strong unapologetic voices that bring you into their story and show you a world or even just the inside of a small, yet unknown by me, taste of it. I just re-read “To Kill a Mockingbird” and was left utterly drenched in the southern heat and the smell of a summer night soaked in emotion, sound, humidity, and awakenings. I am presently halfway through “Wolf Hollow” by Lauren Wolk. I would happily place this book on parr with Harper Lee for her lyrical simplicity and vivid prose.

I look to my own Blog, my attempt to bring a bit of myself to the Thunderdome of social medial, to be one more voice in the din and all I want to do is just crawl back in bed and read someone else, someone who was brave enough to step out into the world and capture it, if only for the few minutes it takes to read the paragraphs.

 

READING LIST: The Blogess, The Oatmeal, Hyperbole and a Half, Post Apocalyptic Bohemia, Pile of Babies, MuseFondue to name a few.

  1. Damn, two months later and I’m just reading this post. Thanks for the mention!!!

    I need to bookmark your blog, now that you’re here more than twice a year. I’m catching up on everything I’ve missed, although since you exist on Facebook (and you do exist in real life, too, in spite of your ponderings in your ‘Social Media’ post) I actually know what you’re doing. So, ramble ramble ramble, I do this with crafts – I look at other craftists and see what fantastic things everybody else is making, and I feel I have nothing new to offer. So, let’s both just be creative and not worry what anyone thinks, ‘kay?
