What is Natural Blogging?

I was thinking today.

People take their blogs very easily. It comes to them as a natural extension of their mind. Just like speech comes after thought, blog comes after idea. Like a robotic arm, an extension of the human maneuverability.

Unfortunately(or so I am thinking as of now) it is not the case with me. Writing doesn’t comes to me as a natural extension of my brain, my thoughts. It comes to me rather as a ‘weapon’, I can’t describe exactly what does this weapon does, but yeah, that’s the exact word. It comes to me as a weapon. It comes third in the connection, it’s not directly connected. Instead of thought-blog, there’s this double layer of thought, thought-thought-blog. And due to that it no longer remains an extension, something one manipulates using his reflexes. It becomes a weapon, something one manipulates using his mind, with a fixed purpose in mind.

I feel a pang of jealousy when I see blogs which seem effortlessly written. And this is not something related at all to literary merit. If a post is written effortlessly, in a stream-of-consciousness manner, it will show itself. On the other hand, I always intend to control that stream. I don’t know if it’s good or bad or just a matter of style. It does feels a little unpleasant at times. In fact, it’s in this post, that I have tried to remain casual and write in an offhand, stream-of-consciousness manner.

They must have had an easy time blogging away their thoughts. Well, I don’t.

    you know.. i have the same tendency. whenever i create something with my own hands, be it a painting, a sketch, poem, article, story or whatever, i just do it in one shot. even when am sketching i refrain from using an eraser because i’ll always find that it can be done better. but in the whole process of trying to make something better sometimes the original creation loses it’s freshness and appeal. it’s okay if it ain’t perfect. maybe you can do it better the next time you make something. there’s perfection even in the imperfections… trying doing it- IN ONE SHOT. space yourself out and just let it go without thinking twice about WHAT you are writing instead write what you WANT to write. it’s liberating!

      thanks for sharing prachieeee πŸ™‚
      yeah, that’s exactly how i want to do it at times like these- IN ONE SHOT. Looks like I’m a control freak 😦
      I agree with your point about perfections in imperfections, like in this single post where I’ve tried to let go, there are so many layers of afterthought coming in discussions. maybe it is for the better.
      Well, at least now I have a hindsight as to how and why to do it πŸ™‚

    And then they looked into the brightness that was shining in front of them, they couldn’t help but walk into it. It seemed as if they’d reached the point where they could finally touch the sky; like they were not of the world anymore… that is what the feeling is when you write spontaneously. You seems to be not in this world while writing it and then when it gets over, you return back.
