The Open Space of blogging
Hmmmmm…I ought to blog about that.
This thought comes to my mind often – and yet I can’t seem to find the words. Today I realised that the principles of Open Space relate very well to blogging too. Blogging is becoming my personal Open Space.
Whoever comes are the right people: and I need to let go of any ego or concerns about who is reading this blog. Whoever reads it are the right people – none or many – the important thing is to bring my own passion here, take responsibility for how I express that, and let it go.
Whatever happens is the only thing that could have: is the natural consequence of letting go.
Whenever it starts is the right time: there’s a rhythm to blogging that reflects who I am – nothing for days then a great burst of activity, followed by more nothing – or time and space to gather my thoughts and reflect, ready for the next onslaught.
When it’s over, it’s over: one word or many, what’s important is to say what I need or want to say then stop. One less thing.
Oh, and what about the Law of Two Feet? Works well in cyberspace I reckon. If I’m able to learn and contribute at your site I’ll probably stay a while. If not, I’ll move on. Sounds fair. So, dear reader, if you linger, welcome; if you move on, I hope our cyber paths cross again.
