I haven't posted since Saturday morning. To some people that's nothing; they take longer than that to update their blogs on a regular basis. But not me -- except for if I'm on a weekend holiday or something. Otherwise I post every day (at least once) with very few exceptions.
But right now I'm experiencing something new in my almost 4-month blogging history. Writer's block. What should I write about? What do I want to write about? What are my faithful readers going to want to read about?
And sometimes I even question why. Why am I doing this anyway? Why am I posting my life on the internet for the whole world to see? Even as I write this post, I'm having a difficult time.
I guess I'm starting to feel a bit vulnerable. A bit (or a lot) insecure. Are people bored by what they read? Do they come back the next day hoping for something better but then leave disappointed time and time again?
I'm not trying to have a pity-party. I'm not looking for sympathy comments. But since this is my outlet; my on-line journal (minus the really personal, nitty-gritty stuff...that stuff gets saved for a few select people), I wanted to voice this.
Some people take blogging breaks...where they have a set time where they stop blogging, for one reason or another. I don't think I'm quite ready to do that at this point. But I may be more selective in what I write about; may take longer breaks in between posts.
I think part of all of this is due to things going on around me. You know...just "stuff." I think it's making me melancholy or something. Distracting me.
I don't know...maybe by tomorrow things will all be back to normal. Or maybe it will take weeks or even months. But for now, my friends...the well is dry.
