What Am I Doing?

I read blogs.

I love reading blogs.

I envy other bloggers and their body of work from the day to day to the fiction.

I wish I had a blog like that!

Well, why don’t I? The answer is pretty darn simple. I need to just write. Sit down and bang it out even if it’s something mundane because sometimes the profound is found in the mundane. I guess I live in fear like many do who write. It’s the “what if it’s not good enough?” fly in the ointment. I love to write meaningful, awe inspiring posts but they don’t always come to me and that’s when I find myself wondering why the prompt at Write On Edge, or Studio 31 Plus, or The Lightning and The Lightning Bug isn’t speaking to me? I need to step outside of the prompt and write for the sake of writing. I have enough stuff falling out of my brain on a daily basis I should be able to put something in a blog post even if its just “Meh!”

My nemesis is enthusiasm. I get crazy excited about making a commitment to something and within 48 hours that commitment has blown away like trash in the Wyoming wind. I want to type right here right now that I’m going to sit down every day and give this blog something to breath out into the internet, but the reality is the 48 hour syndrome, so I’ll say I’d sure like to write something every day and then not beat myself up for not putting something out there.

So be patient with me faithful readers (I’m afraid to look at my numbers πŸ˜€ ) I am trying to dig down to bedrock. If I’m honest with myself, I haven’t been doing this for very long (started in May 2011 Oct 2010 I had to go back and look!) and I can’t hold myself up to other bloggers even if they do approach massive numbers of posts by their first anniversary(which I missed :/ ). My style is different as it should be. I want to be happy with what I write when I hit that publish button.

I’m here. I’m thinking and I’ll be writing.

  1. Just remember that it’s your blog and you can write(or not write) as you wish!

      I’m slowly finding my voice and getting over some of my nit picking. I’m not going anywhere. I love having an outlet to put my writing out there.

    Writing can sometimes be difficult. Write for yourself, not for what you think others want to hear.

      Good advice and something I must remind myself of. The need comes from those affirming praising comments I get once and a while. Most of the time what I like others do as well.

  3. Coming from someone who has been blogging for 1 1/2 years – remember to stay true to you. I find from the heart and writing in your own style and way is best.

  4. I don’t think you need to worry about others. You write when you want, about whatever you like and all will be well! At least, that is what works for me πŸ™‚
