If Everyone Else Jumped Off a Bridge . . .

I don’t typically consider myself a “follower”, someone who needs to jump on the bandwagon and fit in with the crowd.  But one of the things I’ve found myself doing while I’ve been off work is browsing the web even more than usual, and that’s led me to reading blog posts from a whole lot of different people. 

Like the Internet itself, the blogs I’ve perused have covered diverse topics, and have run the gamut from exceptionally well presented to barely tolerable.  But, the thing that I keep noticing is how many of these bloggers are diligent about posting—many of them daily.  Considering how haphazardly I’ve always approached my own posting, this is impressive to me.  I mean, forget the time and energy required to put together a post every day, the real question is: how do they always have something to say?  I’m not sure about that part of it, but I’ve decided I’m going to at least give the logistical part a try.  See if I can make myself sit down every day and put some words on a screen—even if those words might not be all that important in the grand scheme of things. I mean, if all those other people can do it, surely I can, too.

But don’t worry; I’m not following anybody onto a bridge.
