This is my 52nd post on Tien Unscripted!
I wasn’t keeping track of the number of posts I was writing until a few minutes ago when I noticed it on my dashboard.
Alright, to be honest, I have been staring at my computer screen since two hours ago, trying to blog. Typing and backspacing and deleting and retyping and finally deleting everything!
Somehow, my blog subscription page just wouldn’t load and I have resorted to clicking on the links in my blog post comments to read blogs I subscribe. After tracking 3-4 blogs that way, I got tired. So, no luck getting inspirations through reading my favorite blogs this time.
I tried Plinky for some prompts. And I was back to the process of typing, backspacing, deleting, retyping and deleting everything and repeated that for about 3 times. Then when I resumed staring blankly at my dashboard, I saw that I have already published 51 posts and this would be my 52nd
if it ever gets published. Thus the opening line in this post.
When having writer’s block, write about writer’s block, eh?
I have another confession. I get writer’s block very often. Or is it blogger’s block?
I have not gone through one week of blogging without
writer’s blogger’s block since I started last December. I committed myself to publishing at least three times a week, consistently from day one. Even that was is a challenge for me. I refuse to let myself break my blogging pattern because I know that I will eventually just stop and abandon my blog altogether if I start to do so. Like I did for my previous blogs *blush*.
I find myself churning so hard sometimes just to keep to that commitment that some of my published posts are mundane, boring and seemed “forced”. Not proud of those….(this one included).
I salute bloggers who signed up for the WordPress’ DailyPost Challenge and have kept to it for like two and a half months now! When I saw that challenge, I know I wouldn’t be able to do it, so I didn’t bother. I figured three posts a week would be a good enough challenge for myself and I was right!
You know who you are! If you blog everyday or more than 5 days a week consistently, how did you do it? How did you come up with so many interesting topics to blog about every other day? Do you ever get writer’s block? If so, how did you get over it?
Please, please, please share….I really need the help! Anyone?!
