Do you ever have the issue of blog backlog? When there is so much to post you don’t know where to begin? Well it’s a good problem to have. Definitely better than dry spells. But I also like to write about places I just visited while it’s still fresh in my memory and not gone stale. I find that even if just a week passes and I don’t get to writing about it quickly, it feels not as exciting somehow. That excitement I felt is lost. Do you feel the same way too?
That’s when I go on a blog binge, and once I get into the rhythm I post quite a bit. I console myself that it makes up for the dry spells. Those uninspired moments when life catches up with you or when you’re just down with the sniffles and staring at the computer screen gives you a headache.
Also this is another first world problem (and not a real problem at all) but uploading photos when the internet is slow is such a pain. If you’re a fellow online writer, I think you can relate? Also it’s easier to take loads of pictures, then to download photos, edit photos, upload photos, write, rewrite, edit and publish.
And often the most meaningful posts I write are those without any photos. Moments when I just feel compelled to write about an issue I face or a confession I need to make. That’s when blogging is quite therapeutic although at the same time I feel quite self-conscious about those posts. Often I hesitate about whether I want to share such intimate details.
But all in all, I feel terribly lucky to be able to write and connect with people all over the world. I feel most fulfilled when someone out there feels that they have gained something from a post. Even if it’s just discovering a new coffee joint.
And thank you so much from the bottom of my heart if you’ve left a comment or read a post. Also to the kind souls who retweet my posts on twitter. Really do appreciate it.
