I still laugh at myself when I remember that when I began this blog, I FULLY intended to produce incredibly deep and well-planned prose about life, faith, relationships, and even a few pieces of poetry from time to time. There were a few fundamental issues with this:
1. There are a bazillion blogs out there. Very few become successful without photographs and other visually-pleasing touches.
2. Not only am I not an entrancing writer, but I quickly discovered I actually didn’t have all that much to say.
3. No one cares.
And so, the blog became a personal journal of crafts, food, photos, and my life. Sorry I’m not sorry?
But still, like everyone, I find that I have periods of time where I have nothing creative bubbling in my brain. No fresh stories to tell. No new projects or pretty food. Draughts. And then what? Well, this is probably one reason that I have a mighty but small following.
This week is one of those weeks. The season is changing, and the cold, rainy nights have made us hunker down with football and our puppy and I admit, I have not been terribly creative! I hope to remedy this soon, but in the meantime, I plan to spend the rest of the week re-posting a few of my most popular posts over the last six years. If you’re new, hopefully it seems new to you! If you’re not new, sorry, but at least you will have something pretty to look at!!
What do you do when you get block? Writers block, bloggers block, dinner block, etc…tricks of the trade?
