Focus Me… Please

I have been looking back on my posts since the beginning of the year and realized that I have been complaining a lot of the time about how I haven't been posting enough. I think I may have isolated the reason:

I have been working on transitioning to a new system at work and that seems to occupy my normal brainstorming time that I normally use during my commute to work out posts. Yes… I know that we shouldn't take our work home with us— but in actuality I guess I don't switch gears as quickly as I would like and feel that I am scrambling to get a post out at the last minute.

I would much prefer to have quality over quantity and have posts that are well written. I want my readers to actually like reading my posts and not just gloss over them. So… I need your help faithful readers.

So often I have a lot of concepts that I would like to write into posts. Because I have so many, I tend to not concentrate on any of them. This adds to the anxiety of posting which should not be the case. I have written a lot of them down, but have not prioritized them. I need your help in focusing my attention on those concepts that sound interesting so that I can have quality posts. Here's what I have floating around in my head so far:

  • Ancient Spirit
  • Climatology and ranges of things
  • Comforting vs Arm Chair Advice
  • Conceptual Learning
  • Follow-up
  • Giving credit where credit is due
  • Initiative
  • Initiator vs wall-flower
  • Just Being
  • Motion and Position
  • Out of sight- out of mind
  • Relationships Relate
  • Social Evolution
  • Spiritual Callousness and Suppleness
  • Standards and Morals
  • State of Equilibrium
  • The ones we love and the ones who love us
  • The story's in the telling
  • Waves and synchronization
  • Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How we ARE

Please let me know what your top three most interesting concepts you want to hear about. If you need any clarification on these, let me know and I will be glad to clarify. If these concepts trigger other topics that are not listed that you want to hear, be sure to mention those as well.

You are WAY more organized than me. I just have to sit down and type quickly. Some days it comes MUCH easier than others, but usually I just have to type.

Since life itself tends to be full of the heavy topics, I'd always go for the lighter ones like the story's in the telling, comforting vs arm chair advice, and iniator vs wall flower. :)

They all sound like interesting ideas. They are all more complex than the title, because I'm not sure what you would write, exactly, about any of them.

So, my suggestion is this: Start at the top and make each one a blog. You have enough material right there in that list to last quite a whiel. While you're working on this list, when you think of another few ideas, which you will, add them to the list!

Me? All I can come up with is my feet. Sigh.

I think blogging should be about whatever's in your heart, or your head at the time! It should be for YOU, not us!

Just Being always intrigues me, because I have trouble getting out of my head. Major trouble.

I'm with Frogs in my Formula, I'm intrigued with "Just Being" and would love to see what you can do with it.

Wow ... what an amazing list of ideas! I tend to be a bit more spontaneous in my blogging ... letting whatever rises to the top take precedence in the moment. I admire your willingness to seek input from your readers, but experience teaches ME that outer expectations stifle me for the most part. Wish I could be of help.

Thanks for your visit to Sacred Ruminations earlier this week. I use Photoshop Elements when working with photos ... and know I can choose a size from there when I save the file. Guess I need to cultivate that habit ... but until then the Microsoft Resizing Power Tool is the next best thing ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

These are some really interesting categories..with a few guidelines could make each one an intersting monthly writing assignment similar to what I do with Living out Loud Project that I participate in (sorry I didn't link it but it is on my blog). It's project to help people step out of their comfot zone in writing. The responses are greatly varied and interesting to read. I like things like this.
