Number 57.... this is my 57th blog posting since I began last June. I really never dreamed that I would actually have anything to say... much less say in public via the internet. Thank you to those who have kept up and keep checking back. I've had over 7,200 hits since the beginning.... another unbelievable stat.
But lately, I've been struggling with whether I should continue. Honestly, I've not been very motivated to continue. After thinking about it and talking with a friend (I guess I was Thinking Out Loud), I've come to surmise that I've been very cautious in my writings. I usually write only about "surface" topics. Of course there are times when I write about some special events or subjects. But mostly I have refrained from giving my true opinions regarding "less-safe" topics.
This may be the reason I've lost a bit of motivation.... so, one solution is to stop blogging. Another option is to take the leap and begin to post my true opinions and reactions to topics that, up 'till now, I've purposely avoided. All risk aside, I would blog about topics such as current events, politics, the media, religion, relationships, industry, leadership, etc.
There are specific reasons why I have avoided these subjects, but I've determined that I have also shown a lack of courage in avoiding them. My opinion is just that... my opinion. You may or may not agree. But, for the most part, I really haven't voiced much of my opinion... at least not on subjects of depth. Is it worth the risk? Should I step out and reveal a side of me that has remained below the radar?
If you have a preference, let me know!
