Visible Indication of Executive Dysfunction

Just a random observation.

I have five blogs in my favorite blog list. Of those five, three are maintained by autistic people, one by a psychopath, and one by a 'fat guy in a wheelchair' (as he describes himself). So, four out of the five blogs in my blog list, as well as my own blog, are maintained by people with executive dysfunction. Guess which ones are updated inconsistently?

It seems that executive dysfunction affects blogging as well.

I know mine does --- sometimes I can bang out two or three posts in a day (this happens very infrequently, but it can happen), sometimes I can go a week or two with new posts appearing every few days (this may be the rarest of all), but mostly I have long dry spells occasionally broken by posts. Sometimes this is because I'm doing other, non-Internet things, but sometimes it's because I just can't get a post I'm working on to gel. (It is quite common for me to take weeks, if not months, to write one measly post.)

Speaking as a person with executive dysfunction due to attention deficit disorder -- yah, somehow I am not surprised by this :-)

I don't hold anyone (including myself) to consistency in blogging, and I find irritating people who blog about blogging consistency, which at best is redundancy, and more often than not is a way of saying "I exhibit professionalism" (some even use that word). I treasure those who speak when they have something to say. I envy not those with jobs that require creative output on a day-in day-out basis (columnists, cartoonists, Jay Leno, etc.) So please, do make your blog a joy not a job. Unless of course you really need the job...

"So please, do make your blog a joy not a job."

That's what I do.

If I tried to make myself blog every day, I could do it for awhile. Then I would burn out and abandon the blog altogether. So instead I blog infrequently, when I have something to write about, and I've got a blog that lasts.
