Something To Blog About

Everyday as I drive to and fro work I’m thinking of this and that, which ends with “I should blog about that!”. I’m watching a movie, listening to a podcast, reading a book and something resonates deeply. I think “I should blog about that!”.  I have therapy, a great conversation with a friend or my husband or my boss or a stranger. I think “I should blog about that”. I’m cooking dinner, cleaning the house, drawing, reading, trying something new and I think “I should blog about this!”.  I see other blogs on topics I like and feel I could speak about.  I join challenges. I make schedules, all in preparation of blogging.  I sit at my desk and create a healthy list of ideas. Assign dates, choose quotes and images in some cases.  I’m ready to blog!

I sit in front of my computer… at my desk; in a recliner chair; outside with my iPad. I’m ready to go. And I sit.  And I sit. Staring at a blank screen!  Not always a blank screen. I have about 2 dozen started posts that simply need fleshing out. I am, by all accounts, ready to roll… and yet ~ I feel I still need something to blog about!!!!

That said.

I have joined the Ultimate Blog Challenge.  And for the next 30 days I am committed to blogging.  That’s the what.  But what, pray tell, is they why?  Why do I want to blog?

For one thing, I really want to write better. I want to think of an idea, flesh it out… dress it up and rock the readers (which may well only be me LOL).  I also want to spend less time wandering social media aimlessly but instead putting out some content that matters to me and hopefully others.

So.  There is the what. There is they why. And this is my first post for the challenge. Here we go…

In case you are unfamiliar with the Bonnie Raitt song my title plays off…

  1. I have the same issues! I think of posts all the time and then the moment I sit down they disappear. Trying writing them down or making a note in your iPhone. Don’t let that nasty writers’ block get in your way. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    YES! Just sit down and write. When I started, a friend suggested I create a blog and not tell anyone about it. This way I could start without feeling any of the pressure of “what will they think?” Congrats for starting and for doing so so publicly! Woohoo! Celebrating you

    I blog because I love words, thoughts and ideas. Also it helps me organize and vent. It helps me stay sane. I can’t plan. I just sit down and start typing and mumbling. I probably bore people to death with my mumblings and complaints. 🙂

    I love and relate to your why. I would definitely like to express myself more expressively. See what I mean.
