It’s Hard to Be a Blogger When You’re Boring – The World’s Common Tater

I referenced this one in a post on Medium yesterday. I asked the question “can I have writer’s block if I’m not a real writer”

I’m even more boring than the update I did in 2020. Now, I don’t leave for a job every day. I spend more time at home and alone. I have more time to write, but less inspiration for writing. I list some ideas on how to spark my writing in the Medium post. I want to make sure I try some of those instead of just listing them and then forgetting them.

How do you break out of a writing slump?

I have been thinking about this post this morning. I wrote a few years ago about how hard it is to be a blogger when you are boring. It’s even harder now when you are not only boring, but you also don’t even do the few things you used to do. My kids are both…

  1. The news alone is enough to give you something to write about, although it gets old and boring. Writing about your childhood, family, crazy things that have happened to you is a good start to break the “block” cycle. I attempt to write one article per week, but that doesn’t always happen. I understand the un-inspired part all too well.

  2. When I hit a drought, I use prompts. But as another commenter said, I only aim to post once a week at most. I post on social media 4-5 days a week for my coaching, and can find it a strain. Prompts and re-working/reacting to posts I’ve see from other social media users are my go-to options there. But I also shamelessly take a break whenever I need to.

    1. I think that is a good idea especially if you work online. Your eyes get tired and even an interesting person is boring mostly because we need to get things done and this means for some being alone to finish them. Sometimes I miss the people I worked with in person but not one has continued to communicate with me despite promises, ‘we will stay in touch.’ So they were work colleagues. I aim for once a week except when I have special news like recently about my novel and for a trip, I would publish more information.

      1. What I like about your blog is you are real. Sometimes I question the validity of sites-For example: I am an airline pilot but in my spare time I handle my blog and am an inspiring writer with 10,000 followers online. Uh, this sounds like a full time job. You are very real, as is my blog and I think readers appreciate this!

      2. Yes, I have clicked on the like and it is a blog but just the site title. This happened mostly when I answered the daily writing prompt leading me to back out of the site very quickly.
