Bloggers Block and Ira Glass

I feel like it would be a little pretentious of me to say I have writers block since I’m such a casual personal blogger, but I have something that feels like how I imagine writers block feels.

It’s not like I don’t have ideas or concepts in mind, I just don’t feel like right now is the time to execute them so I have a bunch of half written posts in my WordPress drafts. I also am not trying to come up with narratives like a novelist.

I’ll call it bloggers block.

I feel like I really need to get back to my former work ethic before Mel died because I was really seeing rapid growth and improvement in my blog. I loved how it felt to see myself being rewarded for my efforts.

I think I’m gonna try to post every day in September.

I bet I’ll probably end up breaking this goal on like… the 1st but I really think it would be a good idea.

There’s this speech by Ira Glass from This American Life about how if you wanna do something you, should do it all the time. I hear a lot of people talk about it and quote it and if you know me you’ll know that I’m impervious to quotes but as a person who obsessively does things daily out of the belief that at some point I’ll be good at something, I might as well blog daily. Blogging is already in my habit tracker so I might as well further incentivize myself.

I’ve set a goal for monthly views for September and I’ve begun a list of post ideas so that I can have consistent posts and something to work towards.

I’ll be trying to keep a good balance of personal (whiny) posts and informative/lifestyle posts like I did in the past.

So… yeah.

If you wanna see more posts (hopefully daily) please subscribe to or follow my blog!

  1. That’s funny, I literally just wrote a blog post about this hahaha

    One of my favorite books by one of my favorite authors is the graveyard book. Neil Gaiman Twitter once that he started writing the book (chapter 4) when he was in his early 20s and felt like he wasn’t ready to write the book, so YEARS later (I think like, 20+ years) he went back to it because he felt he was mature enough as a writer to finish the book. I always remember that when I think of all the unfinished works I’ve started. Not that I’ll ever be a fraction of the writer Neil is, but it gives me some comfort.

    I feel like that’s the case with you too, once you’re ready to finish those posts, you will
