I love it when I know about friends who blog. It’s exciting. It’s special. It’s abnormal. It makes me happy.
We’re constantly bombarded with status updates, shares, likes, videos, pics, game requests, tweets, instant messages, ads, and so on. But we end up not remembering anything we’ve interacted with. Or, we can remember what we did (like liking a pic on FB), but not remember who we interacted with (not remembering who posted the pic). Information Information Noise Noise… What a failed era we live in.
But blog posts are pretty different. It takes time and effort to read and to write. Just like actually meeting a friend, both will sacrifice. It’s also pretty intimate. Kinda. If you really think about it.
Anyway, since I’m encouraging people to blog, I’m gonna give some advice to those who are afraid they will get writer’s block. For those of you who don’t know what a writer’s block is, here it is: “the condition of being unable to think of what to write or how to proceed with writing.” That’s from googling ‘writer’s block define’. Haha.
So let me say this: I’ve experienced writers block A LOT, but have never really had a problem with it. I’m usually pushy enough to just blog whatever is on my mind without worrying about the end result or the quality of the blog posts. But that’s not my advice.
Advice number 1. Go do something with your life. Love someone. Appreciate someone. Call your parents. Meet up old friends. Meet up best friends. Say something unusual. Say something amusing. Say something positive. Cook. Learn to cook. Eat breakfast. Learn to skate. Jog. Visit the beach. Visit the zoo. Join a class. Learn new puzzle games. Make friends. Make more friends. Show kindness to a stranger. Adopt a pet. Go to church. Pray more. Appreciate nature. Appreciate silence. Listen to a new genre of music. Learn to play the ukulele. Play in the playground. Get a job. Dress up. Use deodorant. Make a to-do-list. Read a book. Sleep early. I’m sure you know about other things you need to do or start doing. Do it. In other words: get a life.
You’ll see that as you experience different things, ideas come easy no matter what type of blogger you are.
I only really have one advice, so that was it.
Cheerio & see ya next time.
