It’s officially spring here in New York. Actually the past few days have felt more like summer since we’ve been graced with 90 degree temperatures, but it’s spring. And you know what that means?
It’s time for spring cleaning.
I’m not talking about the “mop your floors and clean out your closet” type of spring cleaning. I’m referring to the blogging spring cleaning.
You know, I’ve really missed blogging lately. I’ll sit in my room or here at my desk at work and think about blogging. I imagine posts I could write or even new blogs that I might discover and read. I miss it. But then when I sit down to actually write something, I’m empty. There is nothing to share, nothing to write. And when I open my google reader, it’s the same thing. I have little desire to read the new posts so I end up marking all as read. And then I feel guilty, like I am doing my blog friends a dis-service. I hate it.
So I’m thinking maybe it’s time for a little readjustment. Maybe I need to clean out my google reader for real. Every so often I go through it and delete the blogs that aren’t updated or the ones I’ve added to my “New Blogs” folder that I don’t enjoy reading. But I’m thinking I really need a full out spring cleaning. I need to go through and delete. I need to size-down. I need to minimize.
That’s my plan for today. I’m going to do some blogging spring cleaning. I’m hoping this will re-energize me and make me excited about blogging again. I love it and I don’t plan on leaving this blog world anytime soon…
I just need to find my passion again.
