Two months have passed since my last post.
My experiment to see the importance I played to the success or failure of the Internet has come to a close, and I must say the findings are disturbing at best.
After two months of nothingness from ToddBlog.net (the very blog you’re reading now), the Internet still functions as it always has. For two months, a corner of the interwebs that formerly contributed humor, relevance and thought-provoking posts was silent, and still Facebook, Google and CNN.com stand, as if nothing had changed.
I’m exaggerating, but it is amazing the crippling pressure that one can put on oneself to crank out posts in between actually cranking out posts. You get this idea in your head that all your previous posts are well-written, logical, enjoyable pieces that people actually want to read. You then keep yourself from writing anything because you don’t feel like you have anything to say.
I’m always telling people not to over-think what they’re about to write, or they’ll never actually click publish on a post. I’ve lost sight of that advice and I’ve allowed my blog to go without an update for too long.
I can’t pretend that I’m going to post daily, but I can do better than once every two months.
So stick around. I’ll be back shortly.
