How To Find Time To Write

How to find time to write advice tips blogger life

Writers are faced with many challenges. What topic? Word count? Grammatical errors? Should this go on my lifestyle blog or autobiography? What the heck am I going to write about today?

Was my last post more depressing than humorous? 

But the biggest challenge of all is finding time to write, to consult the muse, and tap at that keyboard. Here are some tips of the trade.

Taking A Sick Day {Feel Free To REBLOG}

Sick day blogger blog life lifestyle humor funny

I am taking a sick day, dear readers.

It is shocking—I know—that I, practically a superhero by trade, could possibly get sick. I mean. What is wrong with the universe? What has this world come to?

I have the heart of a T-rex. I am supposed to be invisible.

California can’t seem to get her act together when it comes to the weather.

You’re hot and you’re cold, you’re yes and you’re no.

One day, you’re shivering outside your car, jogging to create heat and cursing your fingers for not retrieving your keys from your bag fast enough, and the next, you’re slathering aloe vera on your forearms, wondering: who the heck gets sunburned on their forearms?

Thoughts Bloggers Have

Thoughts Bloggers Have. Humor

Bloggers are a special kind of people. We speak through our fingers. We create pictures with words. We’re like YouTubers, with a keyboard.

We don’t know when to quit with the metaphors and similes…

The idea for this post hit me—as most posts tend to do—as I was staring at a roll of toilet paper. I wondered how bad, on a scale of 1-10, my latest post really was and realized these are thoughts all bloggers must have after, during, and before writing a blog post for all the internet to see.

Out poured this list.

5 Tips For Newbie Bloggers

5 Tips for newbie bloggers

When I look back at my years as a blogger, I’m filled with a sad cliché.

If I knew then what I know now. . .

It’s horrible. I hate participating in clichés. I try very hard to be a unique, interesting individual.

If you are just starting as a blogger, I want to share some invaluable tips and explanations that would’ve helped me when I was a baby blogger. Let’s dive right in, starting with twitter.

What Blogging Has Done To Me

What Blogging Has Done To Me

I was inspired by Jenny In Neverland’s post, “How Blogging Has Changed My Life.” My eyes flicked across the title, and my mind whirred, beeped, and came to life.

Except, my brain works differently than most people’s.

Most people check and make sure they have milk for the sauce, before cooking the pasta. I’m not like that.

I thought of a completely different direction to Jenny’s post. My thoughts grew more complex. My smile spread, and I knew I had to write it. Except, I’m calling my post What Blogging Has Done To me.

What I Imagine The Blogging World To be

The Blogosphere is a beautiful place. Neighbors are friendly and encouraging (as long as you keep to appropriate hashtags). Backgrounds are white. And there are always fresh flowers. Everywhere. Long stemmed and vibrant in porcelain vases on the breakfast nook.

The Blogosphere smells good, like Bath and Body Works mixed with the smells of home. In the Summer, it smells of watermelon lemonade. In the Fall, it smells of pumpkin spice and leaves. But nothing beats the smell of the Blogosphere in Christmas time. Mmm…

This place is a community. We each pull our weight, and we pull together. We sit in a circle on folding chairs and pass The Talking Stick around. We listen and respond and are never harsh.

We’re all in this together.

BLOGMAS Day #14 — Broken Forks & Candlelight

One week and four days until Christmas!! DSC00453

But who’s counting. .

This morning, I had Sunday School, choir, and church service. Then we hurried home to another crock pot lunch. (You would think Crock Pot was sponsoring me.)

Blogmas #8 — Blogger Stuff & Decorating Dogs

Give me a second as I remember what in the world I did today. .

How sad is this that I have to take a moment and think. Think, think, think.

Today is Monday, which gives me that heart sinking feeling, because even though I try to ignore the cliche that Monday’s are the worst. Mondays are the worst. And I can’t even tell you why.

I’m a blind follower of the trends. Ugh.

I started this morning well, with a bowl of cereal first thing. Then I spent some time on Twitter trying to figure out when blogger chats are. I recently read an article that said “you need to be in blogger chats to grow your audience!!” So I obeyed.

We Are Here, We Are Here, We Are Here!

The title for this post is inspired by the Doctor Seuss story about the elephant holding a clover that he is SURE has a civilization living on it, but he’s the only one who hears them, until the entire town begins shouting in one voice, “we are here, we are here, we are here!”

I have deigned to writing this post on my cell phone. A phone, mind you, that doesn’t have any data left in it’s data plan, so I have to be connected to wifi in order to use the internet. Not exactly type on the go.

My computer is on strike. I don’t know what I did to deserve this, but it refuses. And if it does work, it suddenly forgets that it has wifi capabilities and keeps telling me to connect a broadband device.

Remember the post when I told you I’m not techy? I barely know what a broadband device is, besides it being the physical thing that gives out the Wi-Fi signal that we all connect to and steal internet from.

*sigh* I feel like I am shouting from a clover.. I am here. Anyone out there?
