Welcome to our weekly BlogAnon meeting where we confess a particular blogging sin and turn to you for support, suggestions and that blogging bond so we know we're not all alone. Don't be shy. Read along and let us know if you identify with us this week.
I don't like being in a rut. That's where I am in my blogging right now though. I write about Movies each Monday. Wednesdays I expound on the 50 Lessons prompts. Fridays I dish about Blogging - vents or tips.
I have lots of random ideas for the days in between. I have things I want to update you on in our world that I just never get around to covering. I have new features that I feel excited to put into play but then I get distracted by something else. The fact of the matter is, I really only have time for 3 posts a week and each of those days is dedicated to 3 specific things.
So I'm thinking that in the near future I might shake things up a bit and ditch one or all of my rut-creating format posts. Maybe for a month. Maybe forever. It gets old thinking of movie themes. My mind goes blank thinking of blog related tips or topics to talk about sometimes. Even the open-ended prompts from 50 Lessons turns limiting and redundant at times.
Ruts will do that to you. Make you annoyed with everything and spur drastic actions. I've got lots of creative thoughts in this Bumble brain of mine waiting for a turn to express themselves. Time to start a new rut with them. To keep me interested; to keep you interested. Are you ready for the ride?
How do you escape a self-created rut? Did your actions just create a different version of the same beast? Or did it liberate and inspire? How often do you give up on following a blog because of the same-old-same-old routine lacking in excitement?
