Blogging, Hope Wissel

Writer’s Block

I never thought I would say those words….. this morning as I sat down to write, I drew a BLANK!  I couldn’t think of anything to write about, imagine that?  Was it that or had I gotten into my head?  I made the fatal mistake of looking at my “dashboard”, the one that tells you whether or not people are reading your blog.  I have managed to stay way from it up until this point because I didn’t want to see the results.  I didn’t want to know.  Then my mind starting playing games – maybe you should stop writing, who wants to read what you have to say (I have been saying that from the start) or I am sure no one would miss it if I stopped writing.

Was anyone reading them?  If they were did they like them?  Were my blogs as good as______?  Fill in the blank with the name of any of those bloggers who have thousands of followers.  I know, it is the comparison game all over again.  I thought I only struggled with that in my business but I guess it is really a part of who I am.  The lack of confidence.  The part of me that I want to loose or at least lock in a box and throw away the key.

I am working on a training for the girl’s on my team on Fundraising which is basically to answer questions that they have been asking me over the last few months.  Again, writer’s block!  REALLY!  I have run training programs for over 25 years for people of all ages.  I could understand struggling if I could see their reactions but I will be in the safe space of my home.  I have an AMAZING upline who puts on GREAT Facebook trainings (with the help of her assistant).  Yes, I am comparing again.

DEEP BREATHE!  Clear my head!  Look for some inspiration and get to work….I AM a blogger who shares my strengths, hopes and experiences with the goal of helping at least one person.  I AM a confident business women who goes to a party every time she goes to work.  I AM a Lifetime member of Weight Watchers and have helped others with their struggles.

I am not sure if this blog had a point, other than – even people who LOVE to write gets writers block.  There are a variety of reasons for it but it happens.  Time to re-group, start writing down topics again and see where it goes.

half full



Time to look at my glass as “half full” and get back to work….If you have experienced writer’s block, what have you done to overcome it?  Share your thoughts, I would love to hear them.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
