Lazy Writing Syndrome Thing

   What is it every blogger/writer wants anyway? What is it I want, as in a place to write? At one time, I was thinking about writing at RedGage for my journalistic writings. When I have an idea for a "real" post, then I have places for those, but what about when I just want to write? It used to be, people wrote in a journal that never seen the light of day. Now, we write our thoughts to the world at large, or at least those who listen. 

  Yes, it's likely part of the conditioning process for us to loose our sense of privacy and let the powers to be know everything they can get out of us as we give it away openly. Yet, those that are aware, know this and intrinsically are safeguarding some sort of privacy. Still, this is me sincerely talking to you about our meaning as bloggers. 

   There are many who have a certain clout, they have become successful or some sort of pompous thing. After years of hard work on-line, they are now refined and ready to look down on you. No, I have to give some more credit than that. There are many good humble people in this virtual land who have a heart to help. 

   Half of the battle is having a battle plan, then carrying it out. We also must be flexible in changing our strategy to adapt to what comes. 

    There is this lazy writing syndrome thing. That is where I come to and have problems. Writing is work, and this is part of the problem for me. I want to write simply what's on my mind, and truthfully what's on my mind isn't always that interesting. Only celebrities can really snag a large audience with such. 

    Some people are all business and have no thoughts at all that they want to share. They also may be so focused on making money and "succeeding" they forget about the deeper things of life. 

    If a person wanted to start a blog and write on the current events in the popular culture of the mainstream culture, then they would likely do very well. For me, this blog has no such focus. This is one of those blogs you wonder why you are even reading it, wondering how exactly can this be considered constructive to read this?

    Maybe it's just encouragement? Maybe it's just inspiration to be different and seek something greater than simply making money. It's not that I don't know what it takes to make money, it's that I'm not willing to do it that way. Of course, I need money to survive, but not at the expense of my dignity and morality. Not at the expense of my God, Jesus Christ, Hey, we can't serve God and money both. 

   Just a little tid bit to chew on. 

   Glad I'm a blogger, cause where else could I justify writing this post?
