Wow! When I first started this blog, I thought I would be writing about anything I want to right. I thought I’ll be churning out post after post every day. I equated blogging like talking to my friends. In the first place, this is the main reason why I put up a blog because I felt like a teakettle full of ideas that I need to let out.
Sadly, this is not the case. It’s not that I have no ideas to write about. Heaven’s no. I’m not out of ideas. In fact, I have so many ideas on what to write about that I don’t know which one to pick. You’d think I’m making excuses right? Well I’m telling you, that’s what I am doing. All I do is make excuses.
I realized that writing and talking are two different things. I am animated when I talk. In fact, I can spend all night with my group of friends being the only one doing the talking. This is actually the reason why my friends encouraged me to start a blog. Well unfortunately, writing is harder. You know why? Well when I talk, I don’t think about what I already said a few minutes ago. When I write, I get to see the things I wrote months ago. It’s scary and permanent that I am afraid if I make a mistake, it will be there forever.
I know some of my friends will say I’m over thinking things again. Well clearly they do not know how a writer feels about writing. I need writing motivation. I need motivation to blog. I’ve been sitting in front of my laptop to an empty screen for the better part of an hour. I only started writing this post because I am frustrated.
I don’t want to be a person that blogs about nothing but legitimate complaints. I don’t want to use my blog as a sounding board. I want this blog to offer something of value! I want people to be entertained, learn something or be inspired by my posts.
Help! I am in dire need of blogging motivation!
UPDATE: Looks like its a lost cause dear readers. I’m no longer motivated to blog because I’m going on a year long vacation! Not really. I’m just being sent overseas because of my new job. I’ll be there for a year and I’ll be very busy. Blogging will be put on hold for now.
