Post Format: Standard

By r2j,

This is an example of a standard post format.

Inspiration is a spark. A flash of light. Ignition. But without the proper mixture of oxygen and fuel, inspiration both lives and dies in the same instant. My life, my experiences, my research; these things are fertile soil for the great blog posts hidden within me. I carry them always and they are present when I sit down to do my work.

But all too often, it’s a struggle. The raw material is there, but the inspiration is not. The oxygen is abundant, but the fuel is scarce. And I’m left wondering, “How?”

How do I harvest? How do I sift and pan? How do I mine the caverns within me for intellectual and emotional gems? How do I… write?

Or perhaps a better question is, how do you? Yes, you, my kindred blog reader. Surely, you are similar. Surely, you’ve wrestled the Great Muse down to the dusty earth, and won.

I know this: it starts before I sit down to type. Great posts begin with significant life challenges. With weighty problems to solve. With an urgent need or a mature discontent with the way things are today. Yes, I think all great posts begin before words are written.

So get up, reader. Walk away from your keyboard, and live.

Only then can you give life… to words.

Post Format: Aside

We fundamentally believe that our customers are more interested in a simple, attractive, and functional WordPress theme than they are having 12 color schemes to choose from, and a fancy slider with 8 transition effects.

If you pick out a WordPress theme like you pick out drapes, you’re doing something wrong.

John: Where is the rest of the team? I’ve been here since 3:00am.

Tom: Umm… We actually sleep. Go back to bed, dude.

John: Fuuuuuuuuuuuu

Tom: Fine. But if I show up, I am not wearing pants.
