Blog Better Austin
Written by Austin
BLOG BETTER! I seemingly say this to myself everyday and yet my contribution and general progress when it comes to consistency and discipline to OUR blog has been quite underwhelming. Where has Austin been for real? Yes I know, this is not a JOB and it is NOT life and death here. We are talking about blogging for goodness sakes, not quitting smoking or paying your taxes on time. It is not an essential skill when it comes to my life and it is not something I am accountable to anybody for. And this is where I think the problem for me begins. Like many of us, if something is not required or someone is not dependent, then motivation often falls by the wayside. Now before anyone scoffs at the whole boo hoo song and dance here, stay with me. I do have a point. The irony of this whole thing and the point I am trying to make is that I really do like writing and I love story telling. Combine that with my passion for traveling, dabbling in the kitchen, and somewhat developing fashion sense (thanks to Abby of course), and you have a perfect collection of topics, ideas, and material for a quality and frequently updated blog. Or so you'd think?!
The limiting factor so often revolves around whether or not what we have to say matters or if anyone really cares. However, that is not the point of this blog. This is our voice and we are going to have fun with it. We must all let ourselves be seen. This is our pubic and personal journal. One we hope may give inspiration to some, but one we certainly look forward to sharing with our future children. Mom and Dad did do some pretty cool things back in the day, see it's all right here. So this is my own personal kick in the butt to go for it once again. I hope you enjoy the ride!
