Why is blogging so hard?!

We are a party of innovation. We do not reject our traditions, but we are willing to adapt to changing circumstances, when change we must. We are willing to suffer the discomfort of change in order to achieve a better future. ~ Barbara Jordan

As I learn to try and make time to blog, I just can’t seem to make the time. It is so tough! I wonder what happened to the young lady who was ready to share stories and share others. I have a number of notes in my phone of potential blog posts that are written up and ready to go, but yet my blog has yet seen them along with my readers.
Is blogging suppose to be chore? How does one make time to actually share a story about life at least once a day? Is there a guide to doing this? Or it is possibly that I am allowing the real world to take over and just refuse to make time to connect with people through words? Maybe that is what it is. Maybe its not. As I go on, I will learn. But  I would love for my readers to share their blogging practices and I can try them out.
So for now, look forward to seeing more posts as well as reading my old posts.


  1. Believe me you are not alone. Blogging is difficult, it was one of the reasons that it took me a year just to think through the process. Even so, I feel it’s much more time consuming than I ever could have imagined. It takes great discipline and time managment. I use a spreadsheet content calendar for ideas and it helps keep me and my thoughts organized. Also, I can refer back to previous posts very quickly. There are scads of information online and as Susan (AdventuresInLowVision) pointed out, many bloggers have also written great posts on the topic. I think though in the end you have to find what works for you (easier said than done, lol).

    Be encouraged Fatmatta and share those wonderful ideas of yours with the world. πŸ™‚

  2. Wow, reading these comments I’ve discovered that you guys put a lot more effort into blogging than I do, — your prospective is completely different than mine.
    As for my strategy, ironically my key is to not! have any sort of schedule to be bound to, as I have learned that binding myself to such an obligation makes blogging feel like more of a chore than what I primarily use it for, banging out my geeky thoughts, ideas, and musings. Because I’ve been at it for so long, it’s become my means of social networking, and posting to it just feels like I’m having a chill conversation with my readers. And while I am no expert or, for that matter, popular blogger, I find that having no set schedule and a loose set of topic guidelines makes the process of running a blog a lot more enjoyable.
