Mama Kat's Losing It Writing Prompts: 3.) What do you find most challenging about blogging?

Wow! Where do I start? Everything is challenging, at times!

I'm not sure where my voice is sometimes. I'm not really sure who or what I wanna be when I grow up, so I just stick with being me. I'm a little bit all over the place. And that's why there is the name "Lisa's Little Bits". Yeah. Because... that's who I am.

But the most challenging? Hmm... it's remembering or having the time to actually post. Sure, I take lots of pictures of everything that I do, that my kids do, that my friends do, that I see other people do, etc. I also take lots of pictures of just about every. little. freakin'. thing. And... they actually do get put into the computer. But what doesn't always happen is a post.

Like most people, there isn't enough time in my day. By the time I'm done blog-hopping (please see the give-away - blog CANDY!!! on Scrapping at the McCalley House for the All American Blog Hop!!!) and reading other people's blogs and comments and all that other stuff, I seem to forget to do mine, or think that mine is less important... that those other people have better stuff or something more important to say or their story is better than mine, and HEY! who's reading it anyway? And so... I put it off to go pay homage to other people. (Please see blog candy reference in parentheses in this paragraph to believe me! lol!)

If... if I could get a focus or design team or something like this that would "require" my input? Yeah, sure! I'd totally do it in a heartbeat. I love writing for other people or with a commitment or goal in mind. And yeah! I'd find the time and totally make the effort.

So I guess, by reading my own post... my most challenging thing about blogging is actually myself. I need to make sure I put the time in and make sure that I have confidence that what I have to say/do/be is important!!!!

So, thank you, Mama Kat! One day soon... I'll get there again...

  1. Lisa,
    I think we all struggle with the "what ifs" of the blogging world. Here's something that really helped me on SavvyPracticality. I started a feature on my blog "Money Saving Mondays." So on Mondays I talk about anything that saves money. I can do every post in the month on one Saturday and schedule them to post. On Wednesdays I do Wordless/Wordful Wednesday so that took up another post. Before I knew it I had a regular uninterrupted schedule. Adding MommaKats writing prompt gives me the third dedicated post in a week. I feel productive, Google is happy and so I don't get that down in the dumps feeling about posting anymore. I hope this helps!

  2. it is hard not to compare blogs.....but what you share is you! i hope you get the confidence you need to go blogging crazy!!!

  3. I hear you! I'm still trying to figure out what I want my blog to be about. I tend to be all over the place. I used to be pretty confident about my writing because really, I write for myself. But then I start wondering why no one ever comments. Do they not like my writing? Maybe I'm just plain boring. I don't know. It's hard sometimes.

  4. I keep trying to set up a schedule for my blog, to get at least three posts a week. I can allllmost get there. About 2 1/2 a week is where I top out.

    You'll find your comfort zone, I'm sure.



  5. There always so many things to do and so little time.

  6. I'm my own worst enemy, too! I hate that I don't really have a blog niche because I write about so many things! I liked RantinRaven's advice!


Thanks for sharing the luv! Feel free to look around to other posts. I so appreciate you stopping by and commenting. Love to know you were here! Have a happy day!
