Blogging's Dark Cloud

Every once in a while, I get frustrated with this here blog. I do. Surprised? I didn't think so.

I've been blogging since March of 2004. I don't think that makes me an expert, by any means, but I've been around for a while.

Some times, I just can't think of a damn thing to post. Sure, there are a hundred things going on in my life, but none of them seem "blog worthy," you know? I ran across a pamphlet yesterday that made me giggle like an idiot, but also made me think...







This point I can totally relate to - I get around 200 visits per day and an average of what?...15 comments? Bleh. Yeah, I'm whining. Deal with it.


Let's see...
Biochemical Resistance - check
Content Anxiety - check
Self Loathing - check
Pressure - check
Uh oh...

Great suggestions! *cough*

LOVE his shirt! lol
"Blog for your own enjoyment or you're in trouble." Um...yeah!

So, perhaps I'm suffering from Blog Depression!? Do they make medicine for this? Blogzac? Wellblogtrin? *snicker*

Nah, I'm ok. I DO blog for my own enjoyment. So there.

...but you like me, right? Right? lol

I can't tell you how many times I almost quit my blog for about three months in the spring!

But, I can't, I'm totally addicted!!!

if I quit blogging what would I do with my life? I'd actually have to start being productive. hmmmmm

YES WE LOVE YOU CELTI!! XOXOXOXOXO

I never looked at blogging as anything more then an easier quicker way to throw out my thougths.

I used to have a journal I would write in but that became time consuming for me. Now..I throw down a few lines of nonsense and I feel great!! *shrugs*

Guess I'm the weird one, huh?

lol...This seems to be the theme today....writer's block has taken over many a blog I make the rounds of daily.....including mine as well.

I know how you feel. I feel like such a slacker if I don't post something for a while. Or that my life is somehow dull. Truthfully, I think I'm just a comment whore.

I've been contemplating taking a break but can't bring myself to it. My biggest problem now is that the number of people commenting on my blog as grown significantly in the last month and I feel obligated to read their blogs (nearly all of which are good) so I don't have time to post on my blog and read others. This is becoming a full time job!

I'm sure we can all identify.

Like you? Like you? Hell, I love you girl!!!

I so identify with this. I was thinking maybe we should start a support group but everyone would drop in but not have any comments. ;)

ROTFLMAO! That's hilarious!

Love to you Celti, mucho! :)

On the second to the last page, did it actually say 'suck cock for higher goodle rank'?

So that's how to do it... :)

I know the feeling... at times I wish for my readers to vanish so I don't have the expectation, and then when I get one or two comments I wonder what I've done wrong.
Do it for yourself, maybe you'll have success there where I've failed.

I'm so there. I love it. Great post.

Funny. Sad. And, you know, I read you almost every day. Sorry I don't comment - sometimes just have nothing worth saying. I'll be reading you later!

 
At August 17, 2005 10:54 am, Blogger E-Lo said...

That was freaking hilarious!

I don't know what I'd do without my blog. I'd be lost... there isn't anything about blog co-dependancy in that thing!

Celti, we heart you. :)

Haha! Love this!

I freely admit to using jellybeans to medicate my blog depression.

And I would so wear that shirt.

Oops! I'm guilty of being one of the "stupid ******* lurkers" who never leaves a comment! I'll try to do better! Hate to find out I'm responsible for your Blog Depression! :o)
