Someday, the quality of this garbage is going to improve.

If you couldn’t tell from the awful blog post I published yesterday, I have writer’s block. (If you can even call what I do writing.) Being sick for three weeks, and not getting out of the house except for work, probably has everything to do with it. Also, every time I sit down to blog I feel ridiculous, because blogging is ridiculous. (An example of this was me wanting to share with everyone that I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for dinner tonight because all of my pots are dirty—something that can be summed up in one sentence that nobody wants to read. If I did dishes more often I wouldn’t have this problem.)

Long before I became a crazy cat blogger, I used to care about blogging. It was fun, but now it kind of feels like an obligation. Particularly now that my “post-holiday-tree-cleaning” traffic has subsided. (For those of you who still have no idea what I’m talking about, Google pretty much anything related to cleaning pine needles out of carpet and you’ll get the entry I wrote about it. Basically, to get blog traffic you need to write about the important issues, like unclogging vacuums. I probably shouldn’t tell people that though, because if somebody else writes about it I won’t be at the top of the first page any longer. I need to find a new issue now—the secret to my success is out.)

I’ll probably be fine next week, once this cough has finally subsided.

P.S. The last time I felt like this I deleted everything, and then in the course of a week started over again. That won’t happen this time. I kind of regretted it.

    Feeling ridiculous is absolutely a form of writer’s block/resistance. Hope you feel better, soon! (If wishes from a stranger count.)

    I go through phases of this every so often… Where my life seems more boring than usual, and it’s a struggle to find things to share that aren’t so mundane that they’re fucking ridiculous. Or just periods where I just feel oddly private and don’t want to share…. and I dunno, I just find that if I take a step back and let it pass I usually end up wanting to write again eventually.

    I understand entirely what you mean about blogging. In fact I had a domain for a year and blogged a total of 11 times. With the New Year, I’m basically just blogging about things that pop up the top of my head when I have a moment. So far it seems to be working but we’ll see what happens when I go back to work– it usually all goes to hell when I work.

    I hope you feel better soon!

    It must have something to do with the time of year… I’ve been battling writer’s block for a couple of months now… :(
