Stuck in a Meme

Monday, November 08, 2010

StuckPost My writing is stuck. I can’t seem to break away from Meme’s (Blog Carnivals) to just write on my blog anymore. I’m not even sure how it all got started, but it’s now a full blow epidemic! I think of a great thing to write down and my next thought is… what can I link that up to? I guess I do this because I feel that my writing isn’t good enough just on it’s own. Or I am worried that no one will read what I post without “publishing” it on another blog. I’ve also come to rely on these as a spring board of ideas on what to write about. I need to break away though.

Granted linking up to other blogs is a great thing. It ensures that someone reads your blog that day (usually) and that’s always a plus. The problem is that now I can’t seem to just write to write. I want to get back to writing. This blog is a place for me first and right now I’m not even comfortable with that. I need to accept my writing and use my blog as the journal of life I intended it to be.

So I am taking over my blog again! Are you ready? I know I’m not trying to be! I want to stop all the meme posting and just write for awhile. I can’t guarantee that I can do it but I am going to try. At least for a week! Hehe..  I can handle a week. I wonder if I should set up a tag for NOT a Blog Carnival? Hehe…

I can see where you'd get stuck in the meme cycle. I've considered doing some memes to up my traffic, but I don't want to feel obligated, you know? I always try to make a quality comments and not just "I saw you on Man Does My Butt Look Big Monday" and sometimes...that's hard to do. Because the quality content isn't always there.

I was having bloggy writers block. Then I would get all caught up in trying to do stuff like the 'big' bloggers do it. I participated in a Blog Write Party with @alfecia and @sunflowermommie and it really got things moving again for me. I also checked out the 100 words challenge, one minute writer, and mindbump for inspiration. Not really memes but it gets things going.

AHAHAHAHA!! Love the title for that Meme. Maybe there should be one, but what would that require? A picture!? HEHEHE Not for me!!

Take care!

I used to feel the same way. I used magazines for a while for ideas on posts to write - but the more that I did without the meme's - the more ideas would come to me. I loved the meme's though because they were like guaranteed comments - but the more that I posted just on my own the more people really had something to say.
