Bloggers Block.....

I have been uninspired as late. I guess I expected more responses to my political posts, but I guess I was expecting too much, or maybe it just is not the type of subject matter that attracts people to my blog. I try to be intelligent, but I guess it is hard to put it all down in words. I envy all of you out there that always have something to say. I am not a difficult person, I dont have deep thoughts, I usually have a hard time coming up with things to say, and it frustrates me when I cant write. I guess I am asking for some advice from all of my fellow bloggers out there.

Tell me, how do you come up with what to write?
Does it come easy?
Do you just sit down at the keyboard and something comes to mind?
Do you take the daily happenings in your life and come up with something to say?

Inquiring minds want to know....

Sometimes it's the seemingly mundane or trivial events surrounding the daily routine, which can often make for some of the most interesting reading. Sometimes it's politics. Sometimes it's about selling cars. The World According To Scott. Tell us the story. Even if you don't think others might find it that interesting. But it's honest. Explore it all. You have the ability to write from the heart, and that, in itself, is refreshing.

I can write until the cows come home...
what I'm having trouble with lately is finding the time
to do that! Bottom line is ...every day is different and
simply being here is an expression of being reminded of that!

Write what's on your mind and in your heart and Blog on!

Just a little food for thought.............
If you really want to be happy, nobody can stop you...

hi, again - on my own blog, i just sit and write about whatever comes to mind, tho i tend to stay away from political comments, the state of the union is too depressing for me right now! every person's blog is different, thank goodness, so it's a lot of fun to read the posts from people of both genders, all ages, and from places all over the map! i'm enjoying mine, hope you start enjoying yours again, too!

I don't really have a difficult time writing, it's more of a having a hard time finding the time to do it.
What you need to remember is this, you are NOT writing for anyone but yourself, if someone answers thats great, if not thats ok also. I write about anything that pops into my head, all depending on my mood, happy, turned-on, angry, I use blogging as a way to get feelings out, to see them in words. It's also fun to go back a few months later and see where you were at that point in your life, still in the same unhappy place then you need to work on it, thats old news, not an issue anymore, all the better. Just stop thinking this is about anyone else but yourself and your block will go away.

Goods advice Heaven, thank you!!

I guess I do get a little discouraged when no one will answer what I write. A little bit of the ego I have at times. I am a vey personal and private person. I tend not to get emotionally wrapped up in what happens during the course of the day and that could be part of the block as well. Maybe if I forget there are thousands of other people out there waiting to look at what I write, close my eyes and just let my mind wander, I will get more into it.
