Maybe this “blog every day in November” thing wasn’t such a good idea. Yesterday, things got in the way, then in the evening, when I had time to write a paragraph or two, my brain wouldn’t work and decided to pain me considerably when I tried to use it. (I suspect too much screen time yesterday is to blame). It is harder back here in the real world, when I don’t have obvious topics to talk about – the latest World Heritage Site, or visiting a new country. In many ways, travel blogging is easy blogging. Whilst I tried to avoid the “first I went here, then I went there, etc” type of post, the topics still presented themselves. Anything new, different, interesting, or beautiful was stored away as a potential blog post. It was a different way of remembering – physical and visual memories of being somewhere, seeing something. Whereas blogging at home is often mental – thinking of an idea, or wanting to talk about topics in the media. Trying (and failing) to remember what that brilliant blog topic was that I thought of as I was driving back from the supermarket. I’m sure I’ll get back in the swing of things. in the meantime I will persevere. In the hope of course that practice will make perfect.
