I find writing my blog a great way to clarify my thoughts on a range of issues but often I think of something I really want to write a post about but I’m out at the park, or swimming, or school run etc and not near a computer and find that *whispers* sometimes I wander around talking to myself.
The worst time is when I’m running, I realise that I am almost talking out loud whilst debating the joys of universal childcare, how it could work, whether a fascination with baking is progressive or regressive for women or the problems with Cameron’s Big Society (not least on a superficial level that with war on obesity being declared the ‘big’ in ‘big society’ could be so easily sent up).
I chuckle to myself and everything, and worry that people think I’m a little bit,well out there.
This post is called a blog explosion because that’s often how it feels inside my head. That there are a million different ideas, schemes and plans vying for attention and if I don’t let them out I will just explode. The frustrating thing, however, is finding the time to sit and properly dedicate myself to really working out the arguments, crafting my ideas into words that people can agree or disagree with and ultimately progress in some way.
I don’t think this is new for me, it probably is my biggest weakness that I am interested and inspired in lots of things, a jack of all trades and master in none. It’s definitely time for me to try, if I can, to change the habits of a life time. I usually set a ‘new year’ resolution on every birthday well my birthday is next week and this is what it’s going to be to try to become a master of something, even if it is only to be in control of my thoughts.
The talking to myself thing? Well, not sure that’s ever going to change!
