I don’t know if any other bloggers have found this, but there is a hidden bonus in blogging … the disciplined generation of ideas. It is like there is a whole lot of work being done by the creative side of my brain allowing ideas to pop, ready-made, into my conscious mind.
The unfortunate side effect of this is that you also generate a need to write … and in the days when life (kids, family, work, illness, kite flying etc) gets in the way you end up with a BLOG DEBT.
Over the last few days I have been reading a lot of other people’s posts and feeling rather inspired to comment or analyse … but really have not had the time. So, as part of my blog debt, I am aiming to return to some of these posts, allow the ideas to seep into my brain a little longer, and write it up when I am ready to start paying back my blog debt. Articles for blog debt payback include:
- Russell Davies — I love the way that Russell uses observation from real life to force us to actually look and feel and PERCEIVE and UNDERSTAND the world around us. This post on IP piracy is a great example that goes on to show how even the most mundane works can have beauty and value.
- Johnnie Moore always has a unusual insight … and this post is no different. He seems particularly reflective at present, and it is nice to be able to observe some "slow thinking" in a busy world
- Some great rants are available here. A lot of fun, energy and enough vitriol to keep us on the edge of our keyboards.
- And the prolific Mr Armano is now blogcasting and giving us deeper and more personal insights into his most popular articles.
