Between Trips

Start writing no matter what.  The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.

Louis L’Amour

Blogging is a public form of journaling with the key word being “public.”

The bloggers’ ideas are out there for all (which in my case is about 30 people) to see.

Decisions have to be made.

  • How personal do I want to get?
  • What do I want to focus my attention on?
  • Am I writing to build an audience or for myself?
  • How can I use my blog to better understand myself and the world around me?

The great thing about a travel blog is that there is something new and shiny to look at every day.  That’s the joy of travel.  It’s mind-expanding. Its fun to share ideas and experiences with friends, family and fellow bloggers with common interests.

Eventually, though, we go home, or if we are full-time RVers we settle into a routine.  There is laundry to be done, accounts to be balanced, and rest to be gotten.  We need to hang out, to talk to our family, mow the lawn and watch Netflix.  Most importantly, we need to get out of the truck and stay put.

All this leads to the most significant question of all.  What do I write about when life becomes smaller, more personal and less mobile?  This is the question I will be answering in the next few months.

  1. I do think there is much to write about concerning the routine or small details of life. You pose some good questions for us bloggers. There are times when I don’t get too personal as I know family members read my posts. And it’s just better if I don’t go there. While I want to have lots of readers, I don’t write for an audience. I write to express my thoughts, to be genuine. It’s my voice in the world. Otherwise, what’s the point? I look forward to reading your answers and your blog.
