Well, it’s NOT about adding untidiness to the world – which is enough a mess.
But I ask myself about how to infiltrate a knowledge field, intellects and minds, to sow something, maybe to add seeds to this ground, to see what could blossom, what straight paths you could bend & twist… and then walk onto.
Thus it’s not about milestones, importance and revolutions.
Is it possible to think about this with the idea of blogging?
Imagine you want to blog about food, about fashion. You’d better be good at it, because there are always dozens of thousands of blogs about these. You could also, yes, infiltrate another domain… but with YOUR talents.You’re a food lover? Blog about programming (with your language).
Let’s pull strings :
- Maybe you need to be original. Study a mega-niche, or a rare combination : “crossing Norway with my two cats to try restaurants”, or “purple winter dresses in South Dakota”.
- Maybe you can arrange some concepts, put them together to create sparks, or to show an unexpected light… or to create monsters.
- Invent a new machine from disparate tools and pieces.
- Displace things and ideas, make them move, bend them.
- Use an unappropriate discipline to study another. Study what’s in your plate as a colorist. Or bags trends with… what?
- Focus on who are “positive nuisances”.
- Find your own ideas studying something the wrong way.
- Find empty boxes, find shortages, find imperfections. Then action.
- Play. Look for processes. Twist them.
- Take ideas, make’m jump on your own sieve.
- Watch words. Jargon. Demolish. Or add squibs in it. Your squibs.
- Accept drifts. Watch around.
- Invent indeterminations. Use them randomly, unpredictably.
- Make things proliferate. Explore. Play.
- Make your readers wonder. Make your readers smile. Make your readers wanting to know more. Make your readers more curious.
- Breathe. Watch appearances, meetings, plugs and unfoldings.
The point is multiple and unstable. Get your own ideas. Distribute seeds for who is able to see. Open new roads, and why not, get new followers!
Most advanced, yes acceptable.
Thanks for reading!
You do all of those things. Well maybe not the particulars but the principles. Blogging is something I love but I am aware of its weirdness, especially the lack of form for the whole, which makes structuring each post problematic. Who can keep focused in a project without end?
