My blog is back. Maybe.
I’ve had the domain name JasonNorris.com for a decade and a half.
Over the years I posted randomly. I even made a podcast for practice.
Lately, I simply pointed my domain name to my about page at OnTheGo.FM. I’ve been working on creating a podcast network there, and recently I became a podcast consultant.
However, I’ve always wanted to do something with the domain that bears my name.
I have an idea I’d like to explore, and I’ve made steps toward making that idea a reality.
But I’ve been blocked.
Some say writer’s block does not exist.
[At the time of this post, I couldn’t find a podcast player on his site. Apparently you have to actually subscribe to his podcast to access the episode.]
Anyway, I liked the episode. Encouraged me. Gave me confidence. Ready to write.
And then the “imaginary” roadblock on this writer’s journey appeared again and stopped me from moving forward. Several times.
As I was attempting once more to write, a thought hit me:
Maybe I don’t have anything to say?
Is it possible?
Why we write
We have a message. That’s why we write, right?
We have a message. There’s something inside of us that yearns to breathe free on the printed page or digital screen.
We want to be read, to be heard.
We want to find our voice and use that voice.
We want to hear someone respond. And reply. We want to interact with others who share a similar message with a nuanced perspective.
What’s my message?
Maybe I don’t have one.
So it’s with great irony that I publish this as my first post on the latest regeneration of JasonNorris.com.
