What’s So Hard About Blogging Anyway?

January 22, 2013

Newspaper article about blogs.Yea you think it is easy don’t you? It sure looks easy when it is someone else doing it.

Sort of like building a house. A master carpenter and crew and put up a really great house in a couple of weeks if they want to do it quick. And it actually is well built.

But it isn’t that easy if you don’t know what you are doing.

It is the same with just about anything. It takes time to learn everything you need to know to do it well.

And even then it isn’t always easy. For me the hardest thing about blogging is coming up with something to write about.

I could just write about my house or whatever is going on with my family but I’m afraid some family members might get ticked off and never speak to me again.

Besides that I mostly don’t think what goes on around here would be all that interesting to other people. Or at least I’m not a good enough writer yet to make it interesting.

So I started doing reviews. Those are pretty easy once you have an item or book. You just have to tell what you like about the item or book.

I really want to start doing more posts that are not reviews though. Which means I have to figure out what to write about. I’m not sure why but this is incredibly hard for me.

Once I have a subject I seem to be able to come up with something. It may not be good but it is better than nothing. At least I hope it is better than nothing.

If you are a blogger who has the same problem you should check out the Because Prompts Are Fun weekly prompt and linkup over on Tales From The Nursery. You may find the prompts as helpful as I did!

What about you? Are you a blogger? Do you write at all? How do you come up with ideas for what to write about?
