Writer's Block. Every (blog) writer's worst nightmare. I've never had this happen to me, at least not to this extent. I feel like my mind is so baby-consumed at all times, that when I finally have a moment to sit down and write I just completely zone out. It's awful. I'm not really sure how to fix it.

I think I'm a little confused about the direction I want this blog to go in as well. I haven't ever really had a certain "niche" that I fall under, but I feel like it's rapidly turning into a mommy blog. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, and I might be OK with it happening....I'm just not sure that's what I want. But since it seems like mommy things are all that consumes me these days, it's just about all I think of to write.

I've been searching around for some blog writing prompts online. I feel like if I could just get a little spark of inspiration from somewhere I'd be good to go. I haven't found a site I love or anything yet, but hopefully soon. So if things get kinda random around here for awhile, please bear with me. I'm just trying to figure it all out in my new world. Everything's changed for me offline, so why not online as well, yeah?

I've been writing a lot of kind of deeper, thoughtful posts, and then just leaving them in draft status. This has always been a pretty carefree, light-hearted place, and I don't really want to change that. I like making people feel good and occasionally even give them a reason to laugh here and there...I'm afraid if I get too "deep", it will change the whole mood of the blog.

Goodness. I've seen other bloggers go through this kind of thing, change their "brands", change their focus and whatnot...I just never really thought I would be there. Hopefully I find some motivation somewhere quick so I can stop having all these thoughts bouncing around in my overloaded mind.

Anyone have any super-helpful writer's block cures? I would love the help. For reals.


  1. When I start feeling this way it's usually because I have something I want to say (or on my mind) that I don't feel is appropriate to share on my blog (be it too personal or whatever). It helps me to write it down on paper. Just getting it out of my system and physically writing it down helps me to sort out my own thoughts and "let it go" some, at least enough to end my block.

  2. I enjoy hearing about the struggles of other moms and wives because it helps me feel not so alone. We all struggle especially during this new mom phase because our lives are turned upside down. It's hard and great all wrapped into one.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment...each and every one makes my day just a little bit brighter!
