Before Christmas, I'd written a ton of posts that I drafted and saved. I decided a while back to increase the amount I blog, and I think that since that declaration, I've done a decent job of keeping that promise. The goal I set for myself was 3 times a week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. For the most part, I blogged those three days every week, and it has a lot to do with the fact that I would sit down and write a bunch of posts, publish one, and save the rest to post later.

Lately though, I've noticed the number of drafted posts dwindling. Some time before Christmas, I got so busy and ended up putting writing off. Then the holidays came and went, and now it's writing time again, and I realized...I have so little to write about. A.P. and I are just so damn boring. And everyone is writing about or doing something interesting (to me at least): year end reflections, the cutest freaking kitten ever, publishing yummy recipes, or even posting about their awesome vintage wardrobe. It seems like A.P. and I are the lamest of the lames, and it's not like I'm comparing us to people who are jumping from airplanes and taking exotic vacations. I'm not knocking the above mentioned posts (I wouldn't have mentioned them if I didn't like them), but I am knocking how boring we've become.

That being said, I gotta get on this problem, like ASAP, because one of my resolutions this year is to blog 5 days a week (M-F). What's keeping your interests these days? Got any new blogs you're obsessed with? Did you watch this week's How I Met Your Mother (which I cried at, btw, and loved, countdown and all)? Seriously...I need SOMETHING!


  1. I don't think you are boring! Make a list of things to try and it might force you to do something you wouldn't have before! That's how I get myself to do stuff - plus I like making lists! Happy New Year!

  2. Hey there, thanks for visiting me! Um, start playing the Sims? :)

  3. Ugh, I just tried to leav a comment, so lets hope I don't double post.

    Start by writing every day. If you don't like what you write, you don't have to publish it, but the more you write, the more you'll get in the habit of writing, and the more ideas you'll have. sometimes I write stupid stuff, or boring stuff, just to write.

  4. @Midge: Thanks! I think I'm just going through a blah period. I'm not working on any creative projects, and A.P. and I have been housebound in the cold, cold winter. I'm actually making a list right now, so your advice was timely. I'll post it when it's complete (probably next week). : O )

    @runnyyolk: Lol. Sometimes me and video games don't really mesh...I become super addicted. A while back I got obsessed with Free Cell on my phone. It almost got me divorced. : O )

    @Maiden Metallurgist: That's good advice. Right now I probably only write about 2-3 times a week. The daily writing might help.
