I have written a few how-to's, a couple "good ideas", and most of my public writing has been my thoughts on an idea, reflection, or trend I see. I don't write "top ten" or "lists", there are plenty of those, and at this point putting one more list out there seems a waste of time for me. Besides, my writing is totally selfish, if someone gets something from it, great, but the purpose is strictly for me. I share my blog to keep me honest in thoughts, but I only write when I feel a sense to write. I have no schedule, I get paid no more for doing it, it just feels right to me at the moment and I go with it. I am embarrassed by much I have written, not ashamed embarrassed, but more, "why would anyone care?" embarrassed. I have realized that is not up to me, that is up to the reader.
I also want to write a Philosophy on Dealing With Life for my kids to read when they are too old for it to help them in any way. These are all ongoing projects with the Philosophy hopefully to start soon. Five minutes here, ten minutes there, many times early in the morning.
The whole point being I write to move forward. I write to have it somewhere. I write a public blog because it organizes things for me really nicely in chapters of thoughts. Sometimes I write my frustrations, sometimes I write things that are dark, many times they attempt to be uplifting, and sometimes just thoughts. Many of these are never published. I write because it is my meditation, I disconnect, I put things in perspective, I move forward even if it is a reflection.
