Blog Fog — the New Writer's Block?
Anyone who knows me will tell you that I'm a social (-media) butterfly. Sure, it took me a while to warm up to Twitter, but I embraced MySpace with the passion of a lovestruck 16-year-old girl. And trust me, my early MySpace profiles were just as embarrassing. And I even had a presence on something called Gather, which is a sightly more thoughtful version of MySpace.
Seriously, I'm so cool now that I don't even use MySpace anymore.(But not so cool that I'm looking for the Next Big Thing in social networking. Enough already! Quick, someone invite me to a real, live cocktail party, where I will speak in sentences rather than sound bites and comment on someone's "status update" with my mouth rather than my finger.)
And another thing anyone who knows me will be quick to point out is that I am rarely at a loss for words.
So why, oh why, then do I have such a hard time keeping up with this blog? Especially when I've been told over and over again by the very people whose expertise I turn to to fill the pages of FundRaising Success that it's OK to steal smart and post links to other people's creative thoughts and brilliant ideas rather than struggling to come up with new ideas every day?
How about you? Do you run a blog for your organization? How often do you post? Got any tips for a writer who is trying to ramp up her blogging quality and quantity? Do you ever experience blog fog? If so, how do you slog through it?
Looking forward to hearing from you!
Peace & blessings
