I've been struggling lately when trying to write. I'm struggling to put coherent sentences together(I've never let that stop me before) right now. I got away from doing my posts where I write a little bit about a variety of topics. Some topics just needed to be their own post. Sometimes I really only had something to say about one thing. The problem is that I started feeling like I needed to do the more in-depth posts all the time. I've also started considering trying to write some stuff that I might be able to get published in other venues. I guess I was trying to force that type of writing here. This has led to a struggle to finish a post.
As I was having this struggle, I clicked through to another blog from a blog I'm following. This other blog is mainly posts of one or two sentences. Many of them the sort of thing I post in a Facebook status update. I'm pretty sure this blog has more followers than mine. I don't plan to go down to posting sentence long posts, but it did help me remember that I don't need to write long posts about a single topic. I can do my posts on several topics and get my thoughts out there. People clicking on my blog aren't looking for think pieces. If they are, they've come to the wrong place.
So, I'm going to stop thinking so much about everything and post here when inspiration strikes. I will also try to come up with a plan to jot down or record my thoughts on topics throughout the week so I can at the very least do a weekly wrap up post. Who knows. Maybe some day I will go crazy and do a vlog.
