The people I enjoy talking to the most are people that can switch gears quickly because it allows for dynamic conversations that cover sprawling topics. These people are interesting to talk on the phone, online or in-person. They are generally less focused on themselves because there's really a lot to talk about in life. These conversations are jammed packed with interesting tidbits, so much that there str usually a few tracks the conversation goes on and even at times, one or both parties might say "What were we talking about again?" or "What did you say before I told you about the time that caribou drove my boat?"
I seriously love these conversations but there is a few problems with being spontaneous when it comes to writing. One problem is that some stories never get told because something else gets covered. A bigger problem is that it lacks focus. Looking through my previous blog entries, my posts are not clean, they tend to meander. It could be that I'm being to tough on myself, but it could also be that I am still not 100% sure of what my blog is about. Either way, I need to be more tough on the editing side of writing and just delete or tweak the wayward topics.

Problems that could be adding to my dilemma:
- Wanting my posts to be a certain length
- Trying to do too much a once
- Not editing enough
- Not planning, just blogging
