When I first started blogging, I remember thinking how much I would help others by putting my writings out for the world to read. I remember thinking how I would start small and then grow as a writer.
Currently I am trying to get that passion back for writing and blogging.
The other day and I was in traffic, I was listening to The Breakfast Club on 93.7. There is a female radio host by the name of Angela Yee and she really spoke to me. She has a segment called “Ask Yee” and this guy questioned how she found her niche.
Angela said, ” you can’t stop when something doesn’t work out the way you want it. You have to put in the work even if you are not making money.”
After hearing her words I began to think how I haven’t been writing as much as I used to. I kept the excuse of “I will do it later” and sadly later never came. I even told my boyfriend, you haven’t been asking me about my blog. You know, trying to blame others for my own actions.
Well, finally never has come. I am writing today to get you through that funk too.
You are reading this for a reason!!
What ever you are doing, you have come across this post for a reason and I am here to tell you, don’t give up! Keep going! Keep pushing! Keep praying!
Being stuck is normal. Getting cloud brain is normal. Losing drive is normal. Just don’t stay there. Don’t stay in that mindset. Don’t let that take over the real reason you started!
Your thoughts direct you where and how to do something. You have a choice to do it with a smile, or be grumpy about it. Don’t choose the grumpy. lol
Stay the course and keep moving forward. Your break through is right around the corner.
I have noticed the last couple of months that I have been having a hard time trying to make time for my blog. I’ve also been having a hard time thinking of interesting topics to write about.
I enjoy writing and putting my thoughts down on paper, but I am having a hard time actually making the time for blogging.
I have a full time job and I have a family to take care of, but when I write it brings a peace that I can’t really explain. Although my mind tends to be more active when I am blogging, I feel more relaxed or relieved when I do write.
At this very moment I am working from home, waiting a few call backs and text to see if I can find coverage for an area, and this blog topic came to mind.
Earlier on my twitter, I asked how to make time for blogging. So if you do have something to share, please let me know.
I have come up with a few things to help with writing and posting:
make time for blogging
set a side a certain time to blog – clear your schedule
write the time down like a date or important meeting for yourself
write down ideas through out the day or when they come to mind
the note section on my phone was perfect for this
jot down writings on paper when you’re able to
sitting in front of the computer wanting to write can be harder than you think; jot down those thoughts to put them into use when writing
I am going to try these methods, I was able to get this post together because this has been something that has been on my mind for a week now. I did not post any writings last month and I do not want that to be my habit.
For all you fellow bloggers in a “rut” like me, hang in there and brain storm. The writings will come and your work will be noticed.
