After blogging for nearly 14 months, I definitely run into nights like tonight when I am feeling rather uninspired to write. I go in spurts. I have ideas that flow quite freely and sometimes, I have no problem coming up with ideas, and then days and days where I just don’t know what I want to write about. I have lots of memories I could probably turn into posts but would they be interesting to anyone besides me? I have often wondered what makes people come back and read my blog. I am 418 views away from 50,000 views on the site. How did that happen?
No one is forcing me to write each day. Last year, it was the challenge to myself. This year, I did not have to continue it, I wanted to. I have found that I really do enjoy writing. I am afraid that if I take a night off, it will be too easy to just stop. I don’t want that to happen. The writing is so good for me. Whether it is read by others or not, it is my diary. I can go back and read and reread what I have written. I have read all of the entries about my mom more times than I care to admit! It helps me when I am missing her so I guess it is therapeutic.
So on nights like tonight, when I feel like I don’t have a lot to say, I might just post a few words, or maybe a quote or two that will inspire kindness or happiness – that was the original intention of the blog after all!
