I had an epiphany today about my blog. A blog-iphany. I realized something amazing.
My blog posts don’t need to be three pages long!!!!
Whoa. Really? You mean, I can haz short blog posts? Short and sweet? To the point? (yeah, right. Don’t hold your breath on that one.)
Oh My. Yes.
So along the lines of End Bloglessness a few weeks ago and End Joblessness tomorrow (you should go! GO!!! What are you waiting for? Go.), I hereby will End Wordiness. Or at least, excessive, unnecessarily long blog posts with numerous topics all jumbled together just for the sake of making my posts long. How dumb was that? Shyeah. Silly me. I really was relying on all y’all to, you know, “guide” me along my little blog journey, keep me from going astray. Frankly I think you guys let me down on this one, but no worries. No harm no foul. You had to read ’em, right? Right.
This doesn’t mean that I won’t be going all left field rants on you when the mood strikes. But the house cleaning posts, not necessary. Unless it’s about, well, house cleaning. Or if it’s just a whole bunch of little related stuff.
Anyway. Here’s a sample of what my shorter blog posts might look like, in the future:
So there’s a charity wedding gown event at the hotel near where I work, in case anyone is interested. And you can Skype your matrimonial finds to your friends and family, because you know any person buying a wedding gown clearly cannot make a decision on her (or his) own. Clearly. Anyone who doesn’t consult every last friend and relative is an alien, or a sociapath. So please, skype that sequined, brocaded, appliqued satin/chenille/tulle gown.
I dunno about wordiness… I mean… I’ve learned to edit my posts from what they used to be… and I’ve stopped writing about ALLL the little things that happened… well, mostly.
Still, sometimes, it’s just hard to trim it down. HOWEVER, I think once you’re aware of that, you make more of an effort to look at a post and say “what could I have done without/ what can I do without…”
Doesn’t always happen but you can TRY… and fuck what Yoda says about trying!
