I Got Tired And Wrote This

First of all guys thanks for the responses to the guest post post. I'm looking forward to some guest posts, but I still didn't have anything for today. As such I decided to wait until I was at my most creative (it's a quarter past midnight while I'm writing) and just load up the interface and see what comes to me. Well partly that was also caused by me just not wanting to accept that I didn't have anything to write. I don't really like not having anything to write about, not admitting my faults.

It's kind of odd that for someone so self deprecating and self destructiveness to refuse to accept their own faults. I have them though, and I think I've gone into them enough as it is. Shame, I could have maybe made a post out of that couldn't I? I just don't like the idea of not being able to do something I know I can do really.

I accept that I can write, that I have random spurts of creativity and I act on them, and that I can do some decent things when I want to. I've managed to keep this blog going for like 8 or 9 months now, that's kind of hard to believe sometimes.

Is this the end of me? No, I don't think that at all. I know I still have it in me, it's just that for a lot of reasons I've kind of lost my mojo. I've been through some things personally, some of which I'm still going through. Usually when it feels like things are getting on top of me, I don't want to do anything. I still read your blogs mostly out of habit and commitment and a sense of duty, but I don't have anything really to write for my own. This is what caused me to ask for guest posts.

See, I'm not likely to take time off at all. Certainly not from reading anyway. Apart from one incident that was out of my hands last year I have always updated once a day for quite some time now, and much like The Deadman, my streak will not be broken.

I just need something to go right for me for once. Maybe something will.

  1. Even if you wrote about your socks, I would read it. I dig your posts, and get excited when I see you have something new.

    1. Well thank you for enjoying what I have to say that much. If I'd allow myself to talk of inanities and simpler things I'd have a lot of content probably.

  2. Creating 7 days a week is difficult and we all go through dry periods. You've been through this before and have come back better than before and you'll do it again. Hang in there.

    1. Aye, I have a post like this every few months or so. This feels like the worst one though, or maybe it's just that I'm lucky in that when I usually get them I have a while to get over them.

  3. Give yourself a break. I stopped blogging for five days and it wasn't a big deal. Missing the odd day ain't gonna kill ya

    1. It might do though, or it might kill someone else. I just can't take that chance.

  4. I know it's not nearly the same but as a figure painter I lose my mojo once or twice a year and it's sometimes hard to get back.....

    1. Nah I think that's a pretty similar situation actually. I don't think I could paint figures myself, takes a lot of precision.

  5. See, how this post is interesting and good where you are complaning about loss of interest and having lost your mojo temporarily. Sometimes blogging break does help.

    1. Like Nellie said, I can talk about my socks and make it awesome. Well, that might not be what she said but that's what I got from it.

  6. What I like about Blogging is that you can even create content simply by posting about how you don't have any content which is always a good thing.

    With that said however, in my opinion I think the best thing for you right now would be a Blogger break, just from writing for say seven days. In that time you could perhaps note down every idea for a blog that comes to your head then when the seven days are up you'd have loads of material. It's actually a tempting idea for me in the future although currently I have a few things planned so it'll have to wait.

    1. Well I already do something like that anyway in that I usually write a few days ahead of myself. But that was another point with the guest posts, the blog could stay updated while I take a short break.

  7. Dude, blog or not blog, it's cool.

    1. Meh I'd rather blog as much as I can.

  8. I felt that way a few months ago. I was told that it's ok to have to take a break. And it is. I post 3x a week and I'm toying with the idea of dropping to 2. Blogging daily is WORK. Sometimes you need a day off. Or a vacation.

    1. And I will, with guest posts lol.

  9. Talking about lost mojos... Thing is, maybe you do need a break. Get away from the blog for awhile (1 week, perhaps) and come back refreshed.

    As for guest posts, I might have something for you - will e-mail you when I'm done.

    1. Thats Mark! Even if he can't think up ideas he can write paragraph after paragraph about having no ideas!!

    2. I probably could have made this a bit longer. I know I could have made this longer.

  11. Dude! You'll find your mojo! I'm sure of it.

  12. hey! don't worry about it. all you need is a little bit relaxation..free your mind from any stress (of there's any, btw) and eventually things/ideas will just pop up, aye?

    we'll be here..

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh yeah I almost forgot. Better get to writing that guest post now! ;D

  14. Oh for the love of God, don't stop writing. For there are only three things that I know I can depend on in this life...1.)death, 2.)taxes, and 3.) that ramblingperson.blogspot.com will be updated every single day.

  16. where's my comment? waaaaah!

    ReplyDelete
  17. that's weird. I'm certain I posted a comment here..hmmm..

    anyway, you'll be fine. All you need now is a little bit relaxation, break perhpas. free your mind from all the stress in blogsphere, if there's any..

    but anyway (again), it's common, I guess? hehe..

    1. Well I'm glad you took the time to comment again and make sure I heard from you :) I'll take a break from writing when I have a lot of posts ready I can fall back on :P I don't know if it's stress exactly but there's typically some stress in my life.

  18. You need to do new tpyes of posts! Post your favourite pictures from the internet, or your favourite lines from twitter, or make posts that are responses to others posts!

    Sometimes people need a week off to stop using there mind so they can come back and use it better! Don't force a post! Heck if you must just make a post that says:

    This is the shortest post in the world.

    or one that says:

    I want everyone who reads this post to comment in the comment section: "lol, wow! nice post" and thats it!!

    (I was gonna use that last idea in a post of mine some day but you can use it instead if you want to!)

    1. Haha I do need to relax my posting standards, I'd be able to post a lot more. It could be fun to do posts like that, but I don't know if I can allow myself to do it. But if I did my problems would be lessened.

    2. You could keep us posted on the Occupy movement...things like Stop ACTA...write about all those related issues to OWS, and Anonymous. There aren't very many websites that post daily information on those subjects.

      I think I started my blog back in 2007... and I got discouraged MANY times and stopped writing. You have really got something special here though. Don't give up. You could even do a post asking people for ideas what they would like you to write about... Hey there's an idea right there...

      Delete
    3. Every time I do a post asking for ideas it never goes to well, but thanks for that one. I keep an eye out on the news myself and I'll see what I can do.

      Delete
    4. I to would like to hear you keep us updated with news. (Black March)

    5. Again, I'll see what I can do, but sometimes if I do that it's old news by the time I talk about it.

  21. I've been in a creative rut for, oh about a year or so! ha. One day my juices will get flowing and I'll write that screenplay I've been telling myself I'll finish. Thats a reason why I started blogging in the first place, to keep my basic typing skills up and vent random bursts of creativity when they do flare up.

    1. Haha I don't think it's been quite that long for me. I wish you luck in getting that screenplay and anything else you want to write written though.

  22. Firstly, i saw the word mojo and immediately had an austin powers 'yeahhh babyyyy' moment in my head.
    Secondly, dude you're a really good writer! Even when you write about 'nothing' you do it gosh darn well.
    I'm still trying to work on that. I lack structure, and just get carried away and get a bit blah blah and lose focus, so look at the positives of your stuff :D there's an awful lot!

    1. We can be friends if you like Austin Powers. Thanks for the kind words though :) I think you typically have good structure, don't worry about it, and sometimes getting carried away is a writing style.

  23. Pick up a new hobby, or a video game you really enjoy.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I've not been blogging very long, but I do enjoy reading other blogs.
    You will probably find your mojo where you last left it, but there is no need to stop blogging. I am enjoying reading your post...whether it be about socks or whatever! :)
