I know no-one said it would be easy, no one also said it would be hard! But I have decided blogging is quite difficult and I have a new found respect for those who have excelled, hit it off and have successful blogs and those with actual blogging careers! (not that I ever set out to attain that!)
The trouble I have?
Finding things to blog about.
I’ve come to the conclusion that this could be down to a number of reasons.
- I live an extremely boring life where nothing happens
- I pay absolutely no attention to life and the things going on around me
- I am unorganised and can never remember to jot things down if they seem like a good idea
- My hobbies are boring or I just don’t like them enough
- I never have time to think about what to blog
- I’m lazy
Now, these are all pretty negative things to say and in no way what I wanted this blog to be about. Not very mindful either!
But how the hell do I get out of this rut and actually write something useful or entertaining? How do I find the time between food prepping and cooking (I’m trying to eat healthy), exercise, climbing, yoga, work, family, partner, housework and general life to actually take time to sit. Then there are the pictures, where do I get adequate pictures that are all mine? I don’t want to use standard images, I want to use mine, mine all mine. But then I have to actually go out and find suitable things to take pictures of. That aren’t repetitive. That relate to the subject. That’s easier said than done!
So fellow bloggers, let’s put a positive spin on this and get talking.
How do you get your ideas for blog posts?
How often do you write and when do you find the time?
Do you have any hints and tips for other bloggers that may be in the same position and could use some help?
