Gaining momentum

More time has passed, too much time between posts.

I decided to take a look at my blog and see what was going on. Not much as usual lately to my regret. I started scrolling down the list of posts from the favorite blogs list and came across one titled "why do we blog?" I read through the responses and realized what I'd been missing. At the very least its would be for the joy of writing and self expression. And if I'm lucky, there will be more benefits, like better command of words, thoughts, etc., I might even make some friends and extra income. What's not to like?

My problem is that I'm easily distracted and discouraged. Afflicted with a degree of ADD. The discouragement part could be looking for a certain result and not getting it as soon as hoped and thinking it's not working and giving up. Or becoming overwhelmed by all the blogs and posts and information, and not having a method of handling it all. So it becomes on big mass of stuff and I get overwhelmed and discouraged.

Having realized this I want to try and manage it better. Try and keep better focus and follow a written list of priorities so I don't get so easily overwhelmed.

Does anyone else have issues with ADD? If so, how do you handle blogging or trying to blog with all the information that can come at you? Thanks for your response.

FYI I'm not doing the vampire thing in SL anymore.
