Either I think too much or expect too much to post blogs these days. I want to say profound things. To post meaningful content. Or maybe I’m without keywords to focus on. That’s the fault of doing work that’s search engine optimized (SEO). When I write for those, I keep a tally of the number of times I use the keyword, using it enough, but not so much that it’s flagged as spam, among other rules.
I’ve forgotten how to blog for enjoyment.
Also, my life feels rote. I feed my family, take kids to school, go to the gym, have some set hours for work, and take kids to a few activities like piano and dance. Who wants to hear about that?
These are some of my enjoyments these last few weeks:
- Creating database tables in Airtable for Opus 26
- Putting together process improvement tools for Flagship Publishing
- Interviewing a master chef at UVU
- Watching my son do gymnastics
- Listening to him learn to read music
- Watching my daughter at her swimming lessons
- Late night conversations about the intricacies of our lives with my husband
- Game night with friends
- The soothing balm that is my writers’ group
- The connections of family
- Listing good things
Random lists are good enough.
And now I’ve blogged.
