Last month, I managed to blog six times here at Morbid Is. That’s embarrassing. I have been writing in my notebook a lot, even drafting out blog posts, but somehow, when it comes time to type things in, I can’t seem to do it. I lose my nerve.
Instead, I spent last week writing blog posts for other people. The Joan of Arc piece went up on Scoutie Girl last Tuesday and I’ve got 3 others out, waiting to go live. I feel like the guest-blogging is useful — and it’s fun — but I need to find the fun on my own blog, too.
Luckily, Tonia Brown is hosting a month-long blog challenge on Facebook. People need to commit to writing six posts a week for the month of June. They can be written in advance and just posted one at a time each day — which is how I’m going to try to do it, since I’m going to be traveling this month.
I’m hoping that getting into the habit of blogging with make the sitting down to type in my posts less daunting. And I always do better when there’s some kind of deadline, no matter how arbitrary.
Are you happy with the number of times you blogged last month? Come join us!
Cool! I’ve also challenged myself to blog every day for this month. It’s nerve wracking considering I only ever do it when I feel like it. Good luck in your own attempt 🙂
Good luck with your own blogging attempt! I’m not sure why something that can be so enjoyable can feel so hard… Maybe we’ll figure it out by the end of the month.
