A few thoughts from the worst blogger on the planet……….

For several months my intentions have been good but my execution has been nonexistent. I am referring to my blogging commitment and production and have been spending some time thinking about a reason and solution for this problem.

Actually, there are several reasons…… not making any excuses here…it is all on me but there are reasons that I am like I am. Being ADD, with a little OCD thrown in, is a big reason that my follow through is lacking….sometimes I have the best of intentions but then bright shiny objects appear, metaphorically of course, and distractions throw me off course. Every day I have the same routine….drink morning tea while checking email, reading all the overnight twitter posts and catching up on all the latest poker news, gossip, tournaments, etc.

All of this gets me ready for the day and each day blog posts write themselves in my head…. problem is there are so many that they become paralyzing and never reach the page…. Occasionally an idea becomes predominate and am able to hyper-focus long enough to get the idea into tangible form….not nearly often enough.
My biggest impediment seems to be that I am just too much of a poker fan…….there are so many great posts, blogs, and news outlets covering the poker world that by the time I get through all of it, my meager thoughts and reflections seem lame and irrelevant. Actually I do read some posts/blogs/forum threads that seem more trivial than mine may be so I have a self-edit button in my head that prevents me from adding to the ground clutter. These are some of my reasons for being such an ineffective blogger…… guess they are my excuses also.

In my real life, I am an artist who has been at it for over three decades……and have achieved a degree of success in my medium which fills any need my ego may have for recognition. Am also at an age that I know what that is worth in the grand scheme of things and hold dear the true friendships and family. I also work at maintaining a mental and physical health.
It is because of my deep and abiding love of poker that I keep holding onto the constant connection every day…. since Black Friday in April, the landscape has changed so much. While I spent far more than a “healthy” amount of time playing online, my interest has not waned. While being depressed to have this taken away I have been able to reevaluate other parts of my life and have struck a balance that was in jeopardy.

Now to renew my commitment to myself to be a giver as well as a taker in the poker community….now by that I do not mean at the poker table if I can help it…….. but to express a point of view and when possible to present pertinent information regarding our progress in Texas and the rest of the country to legalize poker online and bring casinos to the great State….

We’ll see how it goes……
