I Just Want To Write: Confession Of A Blogger

want to write

I’ve been wanting to write more lately. Not just blogging content or Daily Aspire prompts, like REAL WORLD, HEART FELT, THIS IS MY STORY WRITING. But I question it’s space.

Is it here? TLSM is MY journey through life after all.

Is it Daily Aspire? Do I create a prompt that allows me to pour my heart out to the audience checking in every day?

Is it a BOOK? If so, what is the book about, what is it’s purpose?

Maybe it’s something totally different.

There are so many thoughts, discoveries, evaluations (and re-evaluations) going on over here, I feel like I’d overwhelm you all if I just spit them all out today.

The topics this week have been a bit more intense, personal and from the heart, but that’s what happens when you allow your content to be driven by your week, your mood and what’s inspiring you vs. the content that’s been pre-scheduled in your content calendar like a good blogger. Nah, this week I threw that aside and wrote what I wanted, when I wanted.

And I challenge you to do the same.

I’m taking the rest of the day off (well, I am working today), but after, I plan to write and write whatever I feel like and just see where it goes. Sometimes that’s the most important. I have to rediscover parts of my voice, my gut instincts and the direction that I want this space, DA, and my career to go.

I do that through writing, through words I discover what my heart wants and that’s when I often figure out how to get there.

    I’m a magazine editor and content writer by day, so I see my fair share of content calendars. I totally get the whole “write when (and what ) the mood strikes” deal. Sometimes content calendars help me stay on task, and other times they crush my creativity! But that’s just me. So for my blog posts, I never set the content up in advance. It’s my party and I can write what I want to! lol

    I feel you girl. Someone sent me a message and said, I love your blog but I miss when it was about you! Its a good reminder of why I started blogging in the first place. Now to figure out how to get back there! Write about whatever you want! This is your space!

    The best way is just to try it out! Write what you feel and see how readers respond. Usually, if it’s from the heart, it will give readers the opportunity to know you better, which is always a good thing.

    Hope your writing goes well! I think it’s important to sometimes just write about whatever we’re feeling at the time rather than something we have scheduled or are prompted to write–sometimes these writing exercises are best!

    Love this–I think the best content is the content that comes from the heart. Maybe that means a light-hearted survey or funny discussion starter, or maybe its opening up about real life serious issues and feelings. I think these things ebb and flow as a person changes and grows from day to day!

    I hope you have a great weekend!

    I think it is awesome that you are more open about posting personal and intense topics. The blog world can frown upon anyone who really opens up about real and even controversial topics! Good for you!
