Well, it’s Sunday night and I’d been thinking over the last week about the fact that I’ve neglected posting to the blog – once again! There are so many things I want to write about – family events, work stories, musings that are bouncing around in my head. However, I’m never really sure what to write about.
Most of what we do as a family is the same stuff that every other family does; it seems to me that it’d be quite boring to read about these mundane things. However, maybe I should write about it just to document the happenings of our family. Documenting these things may be something worth reading years from now. But now?
I often wish I could write about things that happen at work. As an emergency physician, I meet a lot of really neat people with a lot of interesting stories. I have really cool patients; and I have patients that aren’t so cool. Unfortunately for you (and fortunately for me), I’ve decided not to write about work; it protects my patients, my employer, and ultimately me!
Like most of you, I’m regularly thinking about a lot of things (religion, politics, family, work, friends, hobbies). However, I usually figure you wouldn’t want to read about whatever I’m thinking. Maybe you do, but I usually talk myself out of putting down in writing. So, I’m often at a standstill when it comes to creating a blog post.
I like to take pictures and I share them. In fact, I often posted blog entries around a photo. However, I recently upgraded the WordPress software which was supposed to make for easier photo uploads. Unfortunately, I can’t get it to work at all since the upgrade. I’ve had to load photos to Flickr and then link to those photos. Despite being a little more work, it works. Nonetheless, if I ever delete a photo from Flickr, the photo will disappear from the blog post. It’d be better if I could just load the photo directly into the post (as I used to do). Persistent research as to why it won’t work for me has not resulted in any solutions. . But, the blog hasn’t been a very friendly way for me to do it lately.
Speaking of pictures, let me tell you that I’ve recently fallen in love with Instagram and am posting many of my pictures via that app. If you’re an Instagram user, you can find me as “erdoc”. Instagram is a photo sharing social network, kind of like Facebook or Twitter but with photos. Most importantly, I love how the photos are published in a square format and the photo-editing options are very cool, resulting in a very awesome final product. You can see examples of my Instagram photos here at my Flickr page.
Anyways, I just wanted to check in and let you know that I’ve not forgotten about the blog. I think about it daily. Now – just to think a little harder about what to post.
