Great minds…

…..really do think alike…even if they’re both mine…

WordPress rehashed the Morton’s Fork prompt this morning – not even a remake, just a rehash – and I mused briefly about taking it up, totally not remembering (which is not the same as simply forgetting) that I had responded to the same prompt at the end of 2012. As is my pattern at the moment, this would most likely have been just another waysided good intention had someone not ‘liked’ my original post today, triggered one of those “They thought Go ahead, stick a Morton’s fork in it. | rarasaur was pretty awesome….You should go see what they’re up to. Maybe you’ll like their blog as much as they liked yours! ” email notifications…

On opening my original post, I could not remember for the life of me what  OBE meant and decided to edit the post with a footnote expanding on it…only to find at the bottom of the post that I’d already had that good idea at the time…”…OBE = Overtaken BEvents…”

What surprised me on reading the original though was how different it was from my gut response to the same prompt “If you had to choose between being able to write a blog (but not read others’) and being able to read others’ blogs (but not write your own), which would you pick? Why?” this morning…

Having so much going on in my life at the moment, my take on this is now that I would rather read the work of others and be inspired, motivated and edumacated than take time I don’t have right now to try to draft something myself…but then I wrote this anyway…go figure…

Maybe I should be applying myself a little harder to churn something, anything out at least once a week..?
