Blogging Anxiety — 13 Comments

  1. I know what you mean. I’ve kind of developed this idea that I should “only blog when I’ve something to say” which makes me feel (a) proud when I manage to work out what that is and (b) mainly, anxious, sitting in front of a screen or over a notebook, completely uncertain what I should write “about”… You’ve done pretty well writing about inspiration and what it feels like to have blog anxiety, and that’s something to write about! Nice one…

    • And I’m rewarding myself with a Tension Tamer tea. It seems to have a mix that actually makes me feel a bit soothed. Having said that, I should have considered having it when I was more anxious earlier.

  2. I’ve committed myself to something similar – except for weekends and vactions/holidays. I worry about what I will blog about when I run out of material. So I know what you mean.

  3. Sounds familiar! I’ve done that “self-inflicted agony” stuff in the past. Then calmed it all down. But hey, would it damage your sense of self-achievement if you wrote every other day for a while, or had a small break from it? *dodges pots and pans being thrown* πŸ™‚ You could then let the buzz last for a couple of days. But yep, any ingrained habit is hard to break. Especially when it comes with endorphins. At least you DO it. Sometimes we may need to write we’ve got nothing to say and have a shout about it! Hey hum. x

    • Hee, nothing thrown. πŸ˜€ I give myself permission to say ‘I have nothing to say’ if I have nothing to say, but I’m still perversely pleased to keep on trying to do a little bit better.

    • I just wish I could transition from doing it in my two point five blogs (point five being 750words.com) to actually working on fiction. I’m proud of my blogging accomplishments, but man… I’d love for my brain to do more creative!
