No One Has Passion Every Day
Maybe it was that party last night. Maybe it’s I’m getting old and cranky. Maybe I’m catching a cold, getting the flu, or maybe folks just irritate me.

It doesn’t matter, if I’m feeling mean and puny. Blog posts are waiting to appear on that blank screen. Why do we do that? It’s hard and it takes so much investment. Then if we’re lucky folks read it and comment, and the comments, well the comments, . . . and if we’re lucky folks write helpful comments that make us think.
- There’s one reason to write — the comments we receive can make us see our ideas. Sometimes folks interpret what we write in ways we never expected.
- Speaking of which, writing is a chance to say something uninterrupted. If we take the time to think through a thought we can present it fully, completely, and entirely.
- Writing gives our tiny voice reach around the world. No one I know can scream that far, even though my older brother said I could.
- Writing tends to keep our feet our of our mouth. Those things we say that embarrass us — the proverbial foot in our mouth — doesn’t happen much when we’re typing out the next thought we usually think about it.
- Talk floats away, but our writing stays for tomorrow. In the case of the Internet it stays longer than we will. That’s a legacy, boys and girls, Folks will know us long after we can say anything about it.
- Every – single – word – of – quality – content – we – write – is – promotion. Relevant content converts to audience attention which makes it more relevant which means that search engines value it more and more so that it becomes even more relevant.
- Look at how each post makes us more visible.
- Writing is a great way for people to get to know our goals, our skills, our aspirations.
- Writing makes us think through and organize our thinking. By articulating our ideas in writing, we force ourselvess to pinpoint our meaning. A goal that isn’t written is a speeding train soon to run over us and the goal we have been planning.
- Here’s our chance to tell our story loudly and clearly so that folks can hear it.
- Don’t forget what we write brings people who comment back. Some of those people are destined to be with us in the summers and all of the seasons.
Whew! I’m feeling less cranky, less mean and puny. I’m feeling more like writing those blog posts now. I’ve got those 11 good reasons. Of course, I have a whole lot more reasons. They are the folks who read what I write. You know them . . . some of them write spy novels — or, like me, that’s what they say they do.
