If you had to choose between being able to write a blog (but not read others’) and being able to read others’ blogs (but not write your own), which would you pick? Why?
Writing anything will always be more agonizing, frustrating, embarrassing and painful than reading. I heart reading. Give me more than three members of the English alphabet strung together, and I’m on it. Even when the material happens to be so bad that it’s “painful”, I choose to read any day.
Not being able to write a blog would not be the end of the world because there are so many other formats in which to write. Even if for some reason it becomes impossible to write anything at all, period, there are endless other ways of self expression. Mime, for one. It’s good to shut up and listen once in a while. As the saying goes, we have two ears and one tongue for a reason. Looking back over more than a few of my posts, it’s pretty clear that all I had going on at the time was two eyes and ten fingers.
