I write the best blog posts ever… in my head… while showering.

But like the grime washing off of me, the words never make it to publication ( and most often not even to the keyboard).

In the past week alone I’ve washed away brilliant revelations on topics like self aggrandizing, the ROI of being awesome, ethics of community management (which actually made it to some Google plus comments instead), and journalistic integrity as a blogger. I had connected words to become sentences, and sentences to be full fledged ideas, only to be washed down the drain.

Of course those words, like the filth of living, come back to me soon enough and the cycle continues only to wash away the words again. One of these days I’ll learn to shower in the morning and let the words build to the afternoon when I can successfully put them to post.
