As my life has gotten significantly more busy lately, I've begun to realize how much time I used to put into writing some of the blog posts that I am most proud of. An hour or more writing and rewriting my own thoughts until I feel like I've expressed myself the way I want to. Sometimes taking almost half the day (including life-related interruptions) to research an idea or get good link.
Several times in the past few weeks I've wanted to blog about things, but I didn't do it because I didn't want to write haphazardly about important topics, and I didn't have time to write about them really well. The result has been not writing anything.
I don't want my busyness to result in not blogging, because I really like blogging. So my plan is that for the present time I'll be writing about less important stuff. More kid blogging and garden blogging, less saving the world. I'm sure I'll get inspired to pontificate now and then, but not as often as before.
