When you feel like you cannot think of anything to write about, think about what the nature of blogging is. Yes, I know that some people blog just as an extension of their business, but even so…their business is a refection of them…a reflection of their dreams, thoughts and feelings.
Blogging is a unique venue that has special qualities to it. Each person’s blog shows them as a unique person. Each and every single blog on WordPress is completely unique.
The feel of the blog, even from the very first page, feels like the person it belongs to. It is like walking into someone’s house. It smells like their personality. It is decorated to their personality. It has colors and representations of their personality.
Your personality is muti-faceted, and muli-dimensional. You have various interests and you have opinions about the world around you.
Your blog is the one place where you can talk about your feelings and opinions about this world, the people in it, and what it is like living life from inside of you.
You do not have to stick to your main theme topic all the time…that is if you have a main theme. You can write anytime of day, about anything that you feel something about.
Your blog is free for people to read. So, if they don’t like what you do on your blog, then tell them to ask for their money back and don’t let the door hit them on their ass on their way out.
Whatever thoughts you are thinking about, you can write about. You don’t have to be right. Maybe it is just a thought you had about something that is a little different than you have heard before.
You can go outside the box and you do not have to color between the lines. The blogging world is one of the last true “freedom of the press” expressions we have left…at least in the U.S. The newspapers and the media are bias. Clearly the people writing for the major papers are not really able to experience “freedom of the press” like the early newspaper reporters when the governments were not so controlling over them.
We have our freedom for now and that is truly exciting. It is something you can feel passionate about. I am aware that we have bloggers from countries where there is no freedom of the press at all.
They do not even have the personal, religious, or other rights that some of us take for granite much of the time. But they set up their blogs anonymously and are able to speak their minds and write what they feel.
Can’t think of anything to write about? Maybe you are really wondering if what you can think of to write about will be interesting enough or accepted by the readers.
As long as you are not hurting anyone, or bullying anyone with your writing, you can write about whatever is on your mind. Try a “Stream of Consciousness” writing like I am doing now.
I did not have anything at all in mind when I sat down to type. I just decided I wanted to blog about something, and this is what came out.
Embrace your freedom in the blogging world. I believe that in this day and age of governmental controls, and company controls over us, that blogging is a prescious thing.
