some days

Some days I dread blogging.  I feel like it’s so pointless in the grand scheme of things.  I want to blog, but am stuck in this belief that I have to have poignant and impressive posts every day and am a failure if they’re not.  Why do you suppose this is?  Why the need to impress people?   When I know that I cannot measure up, then I settle for less.  I write boring little things, or post unimportant videos, just to take up space.  I don’t want to “risk”, so I do less than my ability.

This is not right.  If blogging is important, than I should be giving more effort to it.  Maybe I need to change up my profile.  That may help, but only temporarily.

How do you keep yourself inspired to blog?  Or maybe I should say, how do you blog when uninspired?

Blessings,
Emily

  1. I’m finding your blog interesting to read 🙂

    In answer to your question, “How do you blog when uninspired?”, I thought I’d make a little comment.

    When I really feel that it’s been too long since I’ve written something interesting, I rely on my own personal likes and dislikes so subject them on the world. I try to think of things I enjoy, things that matter to me, things I find engaging. I often try to critique without wondering what sort of response a particular blog entry will evoke….after all, blogging is supposed to be a sort of record of one’s thought processes, not a show of expertise or something.

    I don’t pretend to know how everyone blogs, but the above rules seem to help when I’m feeling uninspired. I think it’s interesting to delve into things I find interesting, when I haven’t engaged with them for a while, which in itself produces some sort of comment for me to write about, however brief.

    Sorry for the huge ramble, I hope this might have helped in some infinitesimal way…Keep up the thoroughly absorbing writing.

  2. Thank you, Jemma! I’m glad you are enjoying my blog. Your advice is wonderful and I will definitely remember and apply it in the future!

    Blessings to you!
