I have to admit – by nature I’m not a blogger. My writing, while always at the forefront of my mind, is often too jumbled to share with others.
I am fascinated by good stories, regardless of where they come from. Books, magazines, movies, television – if it’s a good story, I want to know how it got to be that way and I want to study it. If it’s not, I want to know its source as well.
Enter blogs. Quite often blogs stem from places where space for creativity is replaced by the desire to constantly produce content.
Blogs can only be effective if people who write them do so in a way that represents another piece not being done two hours from now. If each piece matters. When ideas are thin, meanness is often thick (e.g. columnists). It is a true talent to produce constant content that is informative, fun, and poignant.
So when you come across the Nebraskaland blog and see that my content isn’t bombarding you every 15 minutes, keep in mind that I always remember my mother’s childhood advice: if you have nothing good to say, say nothing at all.
Therefore, I’ll continue to search for good stories. When I find them, you’ll be the first to know.
