I do sometimes feel like this blogging lark has run it's course for me.There seems to be only so much I can write about my ventures at the virtual felt or my exciting ( !) life at home with Nacho.I've never claimed to be a writer of any sort and I suppose during my less inspired times this space reverts back to being a personal diary written for my own reference and records.I've also discovered that it's hard to predict sometimes what type of post will grab peoples interest.
In sales there's a saying that "people buy from people" and to a large extent I think that's true with blogging.I usually write these posts by starting with 4-5 bullet points and then just see where they take me,usually dropping one or two as being crap or because I've rambled on enough.Sometimes the bullet points look quite interesting and I just get too lazy when actually writing up the blog post to expand on them properly and make them worthwhile reading.I suppose writing on my breaks at work doesn't help in that regard.
As I've played more and more sng's and grown more used to the swings involved it becomes tougher to write passionately about each particular winning or losing session.In general losing/running badly seems to help as I can keep looking at my game/mental state and try and use this space to let off some steam.When running well I don't want to come across as running my mouth off and lets face it, posting hands showing where I feel I made a good play/read are probably as boring as bad beat moans.
Last night for I played some more $16's on Stars and couldn't hit a cows backside with a banjo.After a quick post on RTR and getting a bit of fresh air with the dog I calmed down and all the two outers and nasty river cards I was going to angrily blog about just didn't seem to matter.I'm down $488 over my last 500 games on Stars but even that shitty run would only require a small heater to overturn and besides I'm well aware 500 games means virtually nothing.( equally I've made $$ at Party over the last 500 which is just as meaningless a sample size)
