Writer's block


Last year I posted on this site four times. FOUR. That's a record for me, of the not-so-good type, I guess.

Not that I'm going to beat myself up about it, because as I've said before, writing about having nothing to write about can be so bor-ing. *yawn* I avoid blogs that churn out posts about nothing. I just can't justify spending my time reading about someone cutting their toe nails* or giving advice on how to clean your dishwasher*. Nuh-uh. In actual fact, as I write this, I should be honest and say I rarely read blogs at all these days. There's only a few (okay, probably one at best!) that I read with any sort of regularity. (Actually ... irregularity, in truth, would be a better choice of words.)

It's funny, because I remember back in the ole Mummy Mayhem days I used to read multiple blogs daily. It took up a lot of time, but, you know, to be a part of the blogging world, you have to contribute by reading and commenting on other's blogs. I liked reading the blog posts, and I feel like I followed a bunch of interesting bloggers at the time, most of which don't blog anymore. I also loved the blogging community back then. (Well, most of it. Some bloggers I could have gone without crossing paths with.) These days, I don't know who the 'popular' bloggers are anymore. Not a clue. But nor do I feel a need to 'build a community' like I used to. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I write for myself. That's it. I don't care how many do or don't read my words, hence the reason I'm not FREAKING OUT over the fact I barely wrote anything last year.

I just find it interesting that 2016 was a bumper writing year here for me. I don't know why, I just found more to write about. I guess I suffered from writer's block last year. Every time I opened my Blogger account, I couldn't find the words. I started posts, I just never finished any.

It is what it is. It's a new year. Let's see what happens.

Happy 2018!

* Actually, I've never read any posts about people cutting toe nails (ewww) or how to clean a dishwasher (Zzzzzz). Thank goodness.
