I've found my voice again.
The last month or so, I've not had the time - or, if I'm honest, the inclination - to blog. I've never seen much point in saying something for the sake of it, to fill time and space. But I've felt sorry not to have posted. It has seemed at times like a failure for someone who communicates for a living.
But it has led me to question this whole blogging business. I started off as a sceptic. (What was the point of blogging?) Then I became an enthusiast. Now I'm somewhere in the middle.
Few of us are capable of spinning out words of wisdom day in, day out. Even natural, interesting writers have a life that leaves them silent. I still can't understand how people like Iain Dale find time to blog at length several times a day. People whose blogs I read regularly when I was starting out in the blogosphere such as Stuart Bruce seem now to be tailing off a tad now. (No doubt Stuart would say it's because he's running comms for Alan Johnson's bid to become Labour's deputy leader!)
Do you read blogs regularly? Is it something you do when you're bored at work or pretending to your partner that you're getting ready for a crucial meeting in the morning? Or are you really spending your time usefully?
Just a thought...
