Time for a Reboot

For the 3 people that happen to read my blog occasionally, and my ramblings, you’ll notice that this past week it underwent a major overhaul, a reboot you might call it.

2020 has been a year of learning for me, and one of the things I learned, is that improvement takes effort and time, and motivation.

One of the things I wanted to change, is my outlet for writing. Writing helps me get better at organizing my thoughts, and the more I do, the easier it becomes, so when it comes time to write proposals, documentation, even simple emails, getting my message through in an organized and understandable way, becomes less of a task, and more routine.

Oddly enough, I’ve never really had an issue when speaking, I can explain a dozen ways from Sunday, but when it comes to writing, I suffer from writer’s block. If it isn’t in putting words to proverbial paper, it’s about putting the words in a way that they flow, a way that makes sense, a way that is easy to understand.

To quote one of my favourite movies, the writing feels “constipated”, as in it never comes to the point. We have expressions for this, “beating around the bush”, “taking the scenic route”, but in the movie “Finding Forrester”, the critique of one of the writing pieces is described as “Constipated sentences”, sentences that have too many words for what is required. (See I’m doing it again).

So I took a couple of hours this past week and updated the theme of my blog, updated some of the categories, updated some of the aged plugins(and fixed the broken pieces that came with that). My hopes are to publish once a month, though over the holidays I’ll hopefully get a few ideas written out so that I can schedule the next ones.

I hope my 3 readers come back, if not, at least I can continue to use the blog for what it was intended, for me to simply write, and be held accountable to quality, that should someone read these words, they should be able to understand, and potentially want to come back.
