Lack of substance

I know I haven't really posted anything of substance for, well, awhile. It seems that everytime I start to post something, I second-guess myself. "Who's really going to care," I think, "that the headaches are coming back? Who will care that I had a job interview cancelled because the position was filled? Who cares that the apartment is still a sty, and the panic attacks are getting bad again?"

There are some fantastic people on my friends' list, people who have my journal on their lists. There are people who save lives, teach children, create art, and at the very least write much better than I do. I...well, I...ah, well, I...

Yeah. There isn't much that I do. I'm not a particularly good writer, and when it comes to myself, and my life? Well...even if I can think of anything to write, I have a hard time believing anyone will care.

So, I suppose that this is my apology for a lack of substance. If nothing else, I know that I'll be posting at least once a month to seattledining and most likely cross-posting to my Blogspot blog, Cooking, cross-stitch, and commuting. I'll still be reading my friends' list, though - it's nice to see how people with some kind of purpose do it.

I'm guessing that even people who save lives, teach children, create art, or write on a Pulitzer level don't do any of those things every single day of their lives. Breakthroughs, big events, are rare occurrences. Life is a conglomeration of the occasional big event, stitched together with a lot of "eh" kind of moments. But life is the important thing, particularly to one's friends, all of whom understand that there aren't going to be mad hijinks at all times, and still want to hear about the other stuff. I don't know about you, but part of my problem with blogging, which leads to stretches without posting, is that often times, what I most want to talk about with my friends is not something that I feel comfortable sharing with my family, or with some friends versus others. Since I have to assume that everyone is going to read my blog, I often end up not posting at all. ::shrug::
