Yes it’s true, I’ve become a vicitm of blogger’s block. During the course of any given week I find myself thinking of and mentally composing creative and witty posts that will impress my followers – yes all six of them!
But, when push comes to shove, I just seem to lack the motivation to put the thoughts into words and I end up staring at a blank screen unable to form a sentence and becoming increasingly distracted by the constant barrage of facebox and twitter updates.
So why do I even want to blog? Good question, Shona. I’m so glad you asked! I think, if I’m honest, it’s my 21st century way of keeping a diary, or recording and responding to aspects of life as I see them at the time, to reflect on later. I guess it’s probably more for my benefit, but if anyone else can be bothered to read my posts, then good on you and thank you very much!
So why the blogger’s block? Well to be honest, I’ve been doing it a bit tough lately and there’s a pride in me that maybe doesn’t want to put it out there and admit that my life is not always rosey and lovely and perfect. But then again if I’m going to be true to myself and to the reason why I blog then I must learn to be vulnerable and honest even when things are not going so well. After all I’m only human!
So here I am, I’m back, let the blogs begin!
