Good Intentions

I’ve just been reading a friend’s blog about slipping onto bad habits mid-week. Like him, I’m guilty of staying up too late watching rubbish on TV, instead of getting a good night’s sleep. My excuse is that I need to unwind after a busy day, but then I wonder why I can’t do all the things I planned to do the next day.

Blogging regularly was one of my other good intentions, and that too has proved to be hard to keep.

So I’m newly resolved, plenty of sleep and plenty of blogging. Hopefully the blogs will be interesting and thought provoking, or sometimes simply mildly amusing. At least that’s the intention…

  1. Thanks for your comment. I think your rule is very good, and I guess that’s what I’m trying to do too. I’ve had some good responses to my writing, which I really appreciate, but I’m not sure how much value I’m adding with my thoughts. However I think it will take time to find my blogging voice, so I hope people will stick with me. Sometimes I might just strike a chord, and I think it’s all about having a convsation, and exchanging ideas..

    It is late, however, so my intentions are failing. Time for bed, #yeoldetwitterpub will have to do without me tonight.

  2. Well, today’s post wasn’t exactly War and Peace (sorry for the cliche), but it did highlight an interesting issue. Early to bed in order to be more productive during the day isn’t a revolutionary concept. But I am intrigued by the mission (cliche #2) of the ‘useful’ blog mentioned in your last sentence. I tried some time ago to adopt a rule for my tweets. They should either amuse, inform, provoke or otherwise stimulate the reader. Otherwise, they are by my definition useless (and probably boring). Do you see the ‘usefulness’ of your blog in the same terms?
