Oh blog of mine. How I have missed you.
But where have I been?
But, I have a small confession to make.
We got Netflix. I love it and hate it. I find myself sitting down for a break and saying I’ll just watch one episode. Three hours later, it’s well past my bedtime, the washing isn’t hung up or the laundry ironed, The toilets aren’t cleaned, the filing isn’t filed. Basically , the house has gone to pot. And it’s mostly due to House. I have gotten hooked on the series. It’s fantastic. Don’t look. You’ll get sucked in too.
Then, I got an email from a blogland friend to ask, is everything alright – you haven’t been online recently. And it was the final kick in the backside to get up and do stuff again.
I have been a bit ostrich-like with my head in the sand. Just doing enough to manage and get by. But really all our hopes and dreams on a shoestring budget take work. Hard, hard work. And with Little Paddler in tow, it also takes organisation.
Let’s face it. I need a routine.
A routine for housework.
A routine for smallholding jobs.
A routine for blogging.
But that brings me to my next problem. What do you blog about when you’ve got writer’s block? I’m quite happy to Instagram. I don’t need eloquence for that. But blogging is a bit different. It doesn’t escape me that NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) is happening just as I have run out of stuff to say.
So fellow bloggers and patient readers, what do you write when you have nothing interesting to say?
How do you find interesting things to write?
How do I get my mojo back?
