I’ve been blogging for around 2.5 years, and have reached the stage where I start composing posts without even realising. Whenever anything even slightly interesting happens (I think it’s interesting, anyway) I’ll find that sentences are popping into my head before it’s even over. I quite like this. The disadvantage to this habit are that some things are unbloggable. There’s very little I’m unwilling to share – I realised a while back that being completely open is the only way that works for me – but there’s the occasional thing1 that I’m not quite ready to talk about, and thoughts or events regarding other people can also be problematic. The part of my brain that is always thinking of the next post, however, doesn’t talk to the part of my brain that makes judgement calls, so I can sometimes end up with fully-formed posts floating about my head, never to be released. This is surprisingly frustrating 🙂 Do any other bloggers get this?
