It is important to have something to say if you’re going to have a blog. “Wise men talk because they have something to say. Fools talk because they have to say something.” –Plato, 429-347 BC, if memory serves me right.
Right now…frankly…I feel a bit like a fool. I feel like I have to say something. Politics? I’m literally spent on that one right now. It is what it is and will take a several weeks to reveal what really is going on. Patience — something not demonstrated by too many American voters in this last election — remains important and especially relevant.
And political blogs are a dime a dozen out there. The train left the station long ago. What else is yet to come down the line? I cannot muster much enthusiasm for my much thought about political blog. I really am not all that keen about sharing news about flat sales and all of that drudgery. I haven’t even been in a good park recently.
I have written about meeting dogs on my boyhood newspaper route…
I’ll read about successful blogs and try to cheer up.
