A Case of Blogger’s Block

23 Jun

Well, it finally happened.

I’m almost six full months into my post a day adventure and it appears I finally have a day with nothing to write about.

I considered a post on how awkward if would be to befriend your favorite bartender in real life, but that lost steam quickly.   I thought about a post where I recall how looking back on the highway while driving sometimes gives me the feeling of being chased.  I got very close to ranting about how the attractive women who suddenly flooded my go-to Wednesday night locale had no business there, but it sounded a tad too jealous of me.

Anyway, I’ve sifted through the bunch of lingering thoughts, old drafts – the whole lot.  And short of writing about how I had man hands in 5th grade (complete with pictures), I have nothing with which to enlighten you this fine Thursday.

There was -briefly- a post about how my boss wears fashion capes to work, but it was far too snarky.

And so I humbly offer you this: the map of Jackie’s Blogger’s Block.  Relish in my process.

Click to enlarge. You know - so you can read it.

    you are kidding? If that is A Blogger’s Block then I could do with some of that.

    you must be very clever to do something like your graph on computer. I loved it..full marks 10/10

      And if I did it in a program that maps it for me, does that make me less clever? 😉

    I’ll say it before and I’ll say it again: BLOGGING IS HARD!

    You’ll be fine. We all encounter times like these. It’s part of life’s natual motion of ups and downs. Soon you’ll be riding the gravy train of blahging* again.

    * how’s that for Wisconsin.

      Yeah maybe. Or I’m just out. Like – no more. From here on out they’re all unbearably boring and tasteless.

      We’ll see.

    What a coincidence! Today I came up with commenters block. I got nothing.

    While I don’t think you are giving yourself enough credit for this post, a few of us have decided to take up the “Post LESS Challenge.” Fairly simple, really. If we are having a Blogger Block, we just don’t post anything… Sort of a Word Conservation thing…

      That sounds splendid. No pressure, freedom, great wide open skies…

    Um, I have that issue every once and a while. I’ve found waiting until the very last second after work and a chilled glass of wine gets over blogger’s block.

    It doesn’t always mean the post is amazing, but at least I threw something out into the blogoverse. Right?


    • Jackie June 26, 2011 at 1:01 pm #

      exactly. and hey – writing something is better than writing nothing at all. at least you can say you practiced that day 🙂
