I can’t believe it’s been a month!!! And I stuck with it!!! What do you think? How am I doing? Now, remember, this is for posterity, so do try to be honest. Points for you if you get the movie reference.
I’ve been having a lot of fun doing things like writing about how I’m not like a 1950’s housewife or about the books I am going to read this year. Coming up with new ideas twice a week has been great for my creativity. To be honest, until this week I was a month ahead with my writing. I was doing pretty well if I do say so myself! I still am, even though I am now just a few weeks ahead of the game.
Some days I am able to crank out two or three ideas for blog posts, but they don’t all make it onto the blog. Some days I pick apart and refine a post until it looks nothing like the originally intended post and I either end up scrapping it altogether or I end up loving what it has turned into and posting it anyways.
Some days I sit down to write and the words don’t come at all. Those are the days I am grateful for the aforementioned backlog of posts. I have time to overcome the writer’s block!
I’ve been overcoming writer’s block since 2011 when I published my first blog. I thought I would be a food blogger. I enjoyed it. Until I didn’t.
I tried to pick up blogging again last year but felt pressure to actually make good content. Which is funny, cause I only made four posts over the course of a month.
This time around I figured I would just type about whatever came into my head. So far it seems to be working for me. I am enjoying it and you seem to be liking it.
I am hoping to go back to my food blogger roots every once in a while and post a random recipe. I may even post a book review or two. We shall see what the future holds.
