    I agree, Rebecca, blogging is tough! As you say, making a commitment and sticking to it is key. It’s just like setting a habit for anything else we find challenging – eating well, exercise, etc.

      Kim,

      Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment. I agree that making a commitment and sticking with it is key. It’s simple, but not easy at times, is it?!

      Hope you have a great weekend, Kim!

    You are so right. I post an “article” blogpost every week and often I write it under stress and press because of my own deadline. But now I have taken a whole day for my blogging and have premade embryos of many articles that I can easily finish and post at time later on – feels sooo good.

      Annika,

      I think you hit on a couple of important points here. First, the issue of writing under stress. Balancing the commitment to post regularly while still enjoying the process can be tricky!

      I think it’s great that you blocked out a whole day to write blog posts. I think doing that, and having several at least partly written posts ready to go is a great way to do it.

      I appreciate you stopping by and leaving a comment, Annika, and hope to see you again. Have a great weekend!

      Rebecca

    I am in the thick of blogger’s block right now…
    There is no lack of ideas…
    If i’m truthful no lack of time, though the birth of a gorgeous new grandson, and other things means I’m busier…

    No, it must have a case of lazyitis.

    Yet i wonder why now when writing is such a pleasure?
    Why now do i avoid one of the things from which I get such satisfaction.

    I don’t have a huge readership and yet when i push that button and find my words are being read all over the world whether by accident or by design I am thrilled…

    The thought has fluttered by that perhaps its time for a change… perhaps something more chatty more journal like hmmm!

    I wonder????
    But the longer i leave it the worse it gets…

    I am writing this as a comment on your blog Rebecca but
    the care I’m taking with it reminds me of the care I employ in writing for my own blog and the thought occurs to me … cut and paste this to my own blog and break the blockage wide open…
    Surely it cannot be as simple as that??? can it??? thanks Rebecca

      Wow, Denise, what an awesome comment! I’m sorry that it took so long for me to respond; it wound up in my spam folder for some reason, and I just took at look at what was in there today. Eeks!

      I really appreciate you sharing your heart and current experience (and btw, congrats on that new grandson!).

      I would say that YES, it can be as simple as you wrote above — I think sometimes we get blocked when we’re trying to write “awesome” content. Sure, we want our content to be great, and we sure don’t want to put shoddy work out there, but I think sometimes we just need to write as if we’re writing an email to a friend or writing in our journal. That removes the big intimidation factor. Sure, before publishing you may want to clean it up a bit, and remove anything you don’t particularly want published publicly, but it may be just what you need to break the block and get writing.

      Can’t wait to see what you can come up with!

      Best,

      Rebecca
