Blog Debt

dump the debt
Originally uploaded by Daveybot.

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.

  1. Gavin, this is a great post. From both the heart and the mind.
    First, it shows the good nature of a good blogger, being compelled to share and reciprocate a good piece.
    Second, doesn’t a great post get better with time? While some may think immediacy is important (it probably is with news items), some ideas are best left to marinate in our mind.
    Get unbusy first. I look forward to hearing your taste when time allows.

  2. Hey Mike, thanks for your perspective. It is interesting how you can easily dig back into the blogosphere and find a wealth of good thinking. You are right, it is not how NEW the article is, but how relevant it is to you.

  3. Nice

  4. Debt settlement is a method of debt elimination for less than the amount actually payable to the creditors. In this process, you stop paying monthly installment to your creditors and instead save the money. When you have saved at least 50% of the total amount, you start negotiating with your creditors for a defrayal. This process is also known as Debt Arbitration or Debt Negotiation and it can be a good bankruptcy alternative.

  5. Your article is very informative. It covers everything about debt settlement and pros and cons of being into debt settlement business. Thank you for sharing it and looking forward for more articles involving this subject.
