Insert pithy and perhaps humorous title here.

Wow, I seem to be quickly starting to run out of things to talk about. That’s weird. I think I’m going about writing a blog the wrong way.

Looking at my notes on Facebook, they were usually long, really in depth, and far between. I shortened up the length some here, but I think I’m still working at this too hard. I think I’m trying too hard to be profound, when profundity doesn’t have to be incredibly long. I also don’t have to be profound every time I write. I guess writing for me may be better served as a way to explore my own thoughts, and maybe not discover something brand new every time.

But I don’t want to NOT discover something brand new every time. I really dislike excessive redundancy and predictability. And I guess I feel like maybe revisiting topics will start to look like reruns do in the comics. Perhaps still entertaining to a point, but annoying nonetheless (hey, I take my comics seriously).

And then I ramble to a certain point in the post, and then suddenly have nothing else to say. Do I just leave it there? Do I wrap it up in a closing remark that pulls everything together? I’m not writing a five paragraph essay. Mrs. Toews (writing teacher in high school) would have had a cow if the papers I handed in to her were organized like my blog posts.

So do I play by my own rules and just hope that people reading what I write are still with me, or try to cater to something that people may not care about anyway?

Eh, I guess I’m overthinking things again. Oh, and look, I just wrote a rather lengthy post on this subject. This always happens. I start whining about how I can’t write and then I’m able to write extensively about how I can’t write, and my struggles with coming up with a topic. Heh. IRONY!!!!

Wait, did I also just pull that all together with a closing remark, too? Why does my brain DO this to me?!?

    I love irony… Irony is one of my favorite types of unintentional humor. A kind of humor that doesn’t necessarily make you laugh, but is captivating nonetheless.
