No, your eyes are not deceiving you! This indeed my second blog post IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS.
What’s with the flurry of activity, you ask? Is MDIC experiencing a non-busy period of her life? Au contraire, my friends. Between work, ultimate frisbee and putting food on the table and my head on the pillow, I have nary a moment to blog.
Well, you wonder, does she have something incredibly important or timely to tell us? Nay, I tell you. Nothing more relevant than my already meaningless drivel I post on Facebook and Twitter.
So then, why, for the love of all things holy, is MDIC wasting her time updating her blog (she still has a blog?!)?
Because I am. Because it’s summer, and it’s my personal challenge again this summer to squeeze in a post or three a week — whether it’s over my lunch break or before bedtime, or heck, if by some miracle I wake up early enough for a leisurely post in the AM.
And why should you care about what I have to say? Well, you probably won’t, and that’s OK with me. Thing is, I spend every moment of my work life writing for someone else – a client, a target audience, a colleague. All that matters in this line of business is whether or not your message resonates with your audience. Which is great for marketing, but not for my personal creativity. What I want: a place where I can write what I want to write, without regard for my readers’ expectations. Selfish? Perhaps. But sometimes writing for yourself — because you need to, or just want to — is the only way to nourish that part of your writing ability that likes to have a little fun.
So follow along if you like — but I won’t be mad if you don’t. Lord knows there’s already enough useless I-ate-broccoli-for-dinner updates on these great webs of intertubes.
