And the Award for the World’s Worst Blogger Goes To…

Write a blog, they say.  Agents and publishers want to see you’re hip with current media, they say.  Some people won’t even consider you if you don’t have a blog/website, they say.  It’ll be fun, they say.

No, I never know what to write half the time, and then I forget about it for long stretches.  This is my first blog post since the tail end of August.  No wonder I barely have any followers or readers!

(Though, to my followers, I’d like to say thank you.  You are all very appreciated.)

But, here I am, going to give another shot.  I don’t have a good excuse as to why I’ve been barely here.  I’ll try to make it up to you!  I’m going to start this thing up in earnest with a blog post tomorrow!

    Maybe set yourself a reminder for how often you want to post?

  2. Whenever I try and write a post about things I think other people want to hear – it is a major failure, awkward, and no fun to write. When I write about things that are important to me with no expectations for what other people will think, my posts are more successful, and I enjoy the research/writing. I also spend a good hour to two hours 5 days a week on my blog. It is a huge time sink, but one that I enjoy. If you don’t enjoy blogging and are only doing it for others, you might want to try investing you time elsewhere into things that do make you really happy.

      When I can think of something other people want to hear about, I do enjoy writing blog posts. Most of the time, I stare at the screen. …Which is kind of how most of my writing works out, now that I sit here and think about it!

      • Oh goodness, I hate the blank screen of death. It actually makes me anxious and giddy but not at all in a good way. I have to think about everything in advance before writing so that I at least have somewhere to start.

        Just yesterday I read a post that got me thinking about why I blog and if it is worth the return on investment. You might find the post interesting. I know it gave me food for thought: http://www.veronicasicoe.com/blog/2012/10/what-are-you-blogging-for/
