Just Hit Command‑N

Just hit Command‑N. Those are the words I just read in a post from Man­ton Reece, and so that’s what I’m doing. I may not be a developer or someone who’s had much of an audi­ence in my life on the Inter­net. How­ever, for the last few weeks I’ve wanted to start post­ing to my site again but for whatever reas­on I’ve nev­er known what to write. So here I am press­ing the plus but­ton in Ulysses on my iPad and writing.
I remem­ber when I first got in to the whole blog­ging way of things. I was­n’t really select­ive about what I wrote about, I would just write whatever came to me. Of course there was a set of themes that would be covered, but they wer­en’t chosen with inten­tion, there were just what my interests were. They were me. Since dis­cov­er­ing Man­ton’s blog towards the end of last year I’ve been reminded of my early blog and the early blogs of those who I still fol­low. They were genu­ine and full of inter­est­ing things because they wer­en’t overly focused, they were just per­son­al sites. Of course those sites, at least the ones that are still going, are still inter­est­ing but they’ve become more focused over time. Although that focus may have happened by a nat­ur­al evol­u­tion as people found what really makes them tick, those sites are inter­est­ing in a dif­fer­ent way now. Thank­fully what I’m start­ing to see, and what I hope I con­tin­ue to see, is more vari­ety and new sites that are per­son­al and reflect the whole of the per­son who writes them. That’s what drew me to this hobby we call blog­ging, and it’s what I hope will help me return.
So here’s to new begin­nings, to start­ing to write more and to being less bothered about what I should write about and instead just post­ing what feels right.
