Blogging Insights — Fingering Around

It’s Monday and Dr. Tanya is back with her weekly Blogging Insights prompt. She provides us with a quote about blogging or writing and asks us to express our opinion about said quote.

This week’s quote is from author Isaac Asimov.

Writing, to me, is simply thinking through my fingers.”

Isaac Asimov is one of my favorite science fiction writers. Back in the day I was a huge fan of his Foundation series and I Robot stories. I respect his opinion on writing. And sometimes, especially when I’m responding to daily prompts, it seems as if my fingers, as they tap away on the virtual keypad of my iPhone, are doing the writing.

However, Mr. Asimov’s quote reminded me of that old Yellow Pages — you remember the Yellow Pages, right? — tag line, “Let your fingers do the walking.

So my response to today’s quote is this:

Let your feet do the walking
Let your fingers do the typing
Let your brain do the thinking

      I started my first blog in 2005 and, except for a two year hiatus from April 2015 thru May 2017, I’ve been blogging continuously since then.

        It’s mind boggling how she could’ve thought she wasn’t doing anything that would get her STDs or potentially get her pregnant. I mean, talk about ignorance…

    I like your quote. I remember the Yellow Pages ad, we used it here too. I miss the Yellow Pages ads, there were some good ones.
    Asimov was my late husband’s favourite SF author and he loaned me his books when we were first dating. I enjoyed them and especially enjoyed his introductions to stories which were often very humorous.

    That is a really great modification of the Yellow Pages quote . It dove tails so well with Isaac Asimov’s quote.

    If I recall correctly – “let your fingers do the walking, it’s a snap” was the full tag line.
