Have you ever sat down to write a blog post, written a couple of hundred words and then realized what you have been writing is not only a bunch of horse shit, but also a bunch of nonsensical horse shit. I hope so. I say that not to be mean or hurtful, but rather because it means I am not going out of my mind.
For the last week or so I have sat down to write some posts that have been floating around in my head for a while, yet once I get past that first line, I find myself lost. I guess the closest I could describe it would be
Wirter’s Bloggers Block. The words and ideas are there, but they just don’t seem to want to make that trip from my mind to the page.
I shook my fingers but heard nothing rattle inside them so I don’t think they are broken. Which can only mean the problem lies in some other part of my body. I am hoping it is a short-term thing, because even I am not happy with the blog posts I have been putting out recently. They are a bit weak (in my view at least) and only seem to get half of my point across. Often mixing up several other points along the way. Ironically this post seems to be the most coherent one I have written for a while. Maybe I have broken through and come out the other side enlightened and having grown as a person. Or maybe I just slept quite well and have had a strong assed cup of coffee this morning.
What problems do you face when blogging? Do your ideas flow and pile up waiting to be used? Do you ever have periods where all form of blogging inspiration dries up and leaves you wondering if you will ever think of a post again? Ok, maybe that last sentence was a bit dramatic but I refer you back to the strong assed cup of coffee comment and use that as my defence.
