Does Blog Writing Come Easy To You?
I don’t know about you but I sometimes struggle with writing for my blog. Then there are days when it flows like a river. (I wish it was like that all the time.)
But the simple truth is most of the time it’s a struggle for me, and I haven’t found a solution to the problem.
I’m not necessarily talking about finding inspiration to write about either. It’s more of the mechanics of the beast that I’m referring to.
It could be that I’m too much of a perfectionist. I’ve always been like that and most of the time I wish I wasn’t.
But then again I have to be true to myself, don’t I.
Sometimes I envy
bloggers like Scoble, Darren Rowse or Brian Clark “those guys” who can pound out the posts day after day.
Google seems to like it, but I know if I did that the quality of my content would suffer, and I don’t want to be some talking head who likes to hear himself blab.
And just when I start thinking I’m a pretty good writer I read someone else’s work and stand in awe. So it’s back to the drawing board again, and round and round we go.
Often I will get compliments on my writing ability (and to those I thank you profusely) but if you only knew how difficult it can be sometimes.
There are days when it seems like everything comes out in stilted blurbs rather than natural language.
Sometimes I can take hours perfecting a post to get it just right. Reading something that I’ve written years earlier I can still find things to fix.
(P.S.: I wrote this post quickly so please excuse me if it’s not up to my usual standards. This is more of a stream of consciousness style of writing than a normal post)
It can be so exasperating and time consuming, not to mention the sweat equity involved.
Maybe that’s why I spend so much time on Twitter (because 140 characters is so much easier).
Which also probably explains why I get so peeved when
curators copycats steal my content.
But that’s another story in itself.
So I’m wondering have you ever had one of those days when you can barely grunt and everything comes out like ummm? Seriously, and for those of you who cannot relate .. I’m not kidding either.
I have more of those days than I care to admit, and I don’t know if it’s just a male thing but it can very frustrating especially for a blogger.
So this post will be short and sweet because I want to hear what YOU have to say.
Do you sometimes have a problem communicating like I do, and do you have a blog tip that you can share with us?
I know, sometimes you just have to force yourself to get it out.
The lips, the teeth, the tip of the tongue … the fingers. Ok I give up.
