A writing crisis

In which I have the inevitable crisis of blogging.

Life is getting simple again, ensuring a period where chaos turns to order and life becomes serene. Thankfully three weeks today life is due to get an upheaval so that will preoccupy most of my desire to see the boat rocked.

I’m also a good way through the process of tidying up this site. My list of jobs includes retagging all my posts and ensuring that they all have nice pictures and introductions. Once that’s done I’ll have plenty more time to write. That is where the inevitable crisis of what kind of posts I want to write will strike. Once again the threat of a blogplosion will rear is mildly unappetising head.

I’ve been able to continue the post a day challenge for over year so now it has almost become habit, and one that is proving hard to break. Today I have not been unable to write until gone 9 pm and despite being hella tired (in in the one eye open only stage) I’m lying on the bed tapping away on my phone. I can’t beat to break the streak even though I know that inevitably I will.

I’ve resorted to using some old posts and some very ropey drafts which means I’m not overly happy with the consistency of the quality or content. This brings to me to my main concern, what do I want to write about?

As I approach becoming a twopeat father I start to think maybe this should be my main focus. There is a lack of daddy blogging and it’s a topic that always seems to resonate. But then how would that sit tonally with some of the other subjects items to cover?

I go through phases like this, moments where rather than change in a small way I go for the huge change. This often means a grand deletion. Instead I need to resist the inevitable urge to destroy and instead continue to create. What that creation that will involve I don’t know yet, but it will be interesting to see.

Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. Not sure how to participate? Here are the steps to get started.

Ah, so you worked out the riddle. You just needed to use dwarfish and the doors to Geek Ergo Sum opened. Or perhaps you just used Google. Either way you are here, on my little corner of the Internet.

  1. I think daddy blogging, particularly with your tone, would be a refreshing change of pace from the mommy blogs that I read (and even sometimes write). Particularly since you will have a fresh baby and a toddler.


    1. This is where I think I’m going to pivot towards…the only problem is I’m stuck in the “must post” habit from the Daily Post. It got to 11pm last night and I’d completely forgot to do a post so rather than going to sleep I had to do 300 words. I think this may be a lot harder in a few weeks!
