I don’t like blogging

Therefore, I’m going to stop. I try it every once in a while to see if things have changed. Then I remember why I stopped. I simply don’t like this medium. I wish I did. I know the wonderful things it can do – create a platform, connect people, provide structure and discipline to writing, etc, etc. But I find it constraining, and I don’t like the writing I produce through it. It’s time to stop wishing I liked blogging. This is my final post. Hopefully I will remember all this before I begin and end another failed blog in the future.

However, I do like the photo I uploaded in the header, which I took on our recent trip to Maine. For that reason, and because this blog archives all my previous failed blog attempts, I’m going to keep it online rather than delete it altogether. Every once in a while, though I have no intention of writing, I visit the page just to look at the photo and how nicely it contrasts with the dark gray sidebars. Perhaps if blogging consisted only of uploading photos, it would hold more appeal. Hmm. That sounds a lot like flickr, a social networking medium that I genuinely enjoy.
