Once you know something, it’s hard to differentiate that concept from being an easily understandable one or one that requires teaching. I’m the resident computer geek in my school and family, so when people have a problem, they usually come to me.
Now, I am often plagued with writer’s block. This really is not a niche blog, so I can write about anything I please. However, when I try to write a post about fixing a problem, I cannot.
I have found the simple answer to this issue. The problems that I fix are so simple to me, I really do not give them a second thought. I could probably run through many steps to fix a problem and not even realize that the person I am helping is standing behind me, wondering what the heck I am doing to fix things.
This is a real shame, because there are so many issues out there that I have fixed and probably just as many people with those same issues. Worst of all, perhaps I come across the issue at a later date, long past when I last encountered it. What if I happen to forget what I did to fix the problem?
From now on, I am going to try identifying which of my subconscious actions should be blogged about. Maybe this new plan of action of mine will help a few people.
