It is the first Wednesday of the month and therefore it is officially Insecure Writer’s Support Group day.
We could debate whether I qualify as a writer or not. I never quite thought of myself as a writer either or ever aspired to being one. But now that I find myself blogging regularly and being serious about it, I suppose you could say I am an amateur writer.
My biggest struggle with blogging it what to blog about. Sometimes this comes easy to me, I get an idea and I can sit and bang away at my keyboard for 10 minutes and put a new post up. Other times I seriously struggle with what to write about and how to say it. Very often I type something, edit it, reword it, then delete it. Then try with another topic.
Then there are the days when I have loads to blog about, but my work schedule does not allow me the opportunity to have 10 minutes to myself. Then the next day it just does not seem as important or topical anymore.
For example – I really wanted to blog about the Emmy awards a week ago about the best and worst dressed. All seemed very topical then and I knew exactly what I wanted to say. But blogging about it now is just not topical anymore.
It is also difficult to write for an audience when the audience don’t give much feedback. I find I have quite a large number of pageviews, but very few actually leave a comment. Not sure if this is a good thing or bad. In a way it is a blessing in disguise as I would struggle to reply to all the comments, but at the same time this would guide me about what to blog about and what other bloggers like reading about, or not reading about as the case may be.
I am now popping over to the Insecure Writer’s Support Group blog hop and see what others have to say this month.
Happy reading all!
