Dear Blog - Why Do You Hate Me?

Author: Anastasia V. Pergakis // Category:

Dear Blog,

Why do you hate me so? I can't make any posts lately it seems. I don't understand this! I used to be brimming with ideas and now - totally blank. What happened to the fire we had? I couldn't go a day without posting - sometimes twice!

What ever shall I do?



Dear Anastasia,

Well, you should talk to Muse about that one. I can't help you there. I just hold the information for you. Not much else I can do.



Dear Muse,

Why have you left me? Blog is suffering and lonely here! Why would you abandon her? She's so young - and fragile. I must feed her new ideas and posts else she'll starve. And what about the readers, the faithful followers? What are they to read and learn if I post nothing?

Where did you go?



Dear Anastasia,

I gave you all the ideas you need. You just refuse to write them. That is not my fault. Perhaps you should talk to Motivation. He handles that department.



Dear Motivation,

Where are you? Blog is really lonely! What happened that made you abandon her? You used to love Blog! I posted everyday with your help. What went wrong?



Dear Anastasia,

I give you plenty of motivation. School, WIP, workshop modding, and even for Blog. If you are having trouble, perhaps you should talk to Procrastination. It's usually his fault anyway.



Dear Procrastination,

Why do you hate me so? I let you control the laundry, dishes, and lots of other things. Why must you deny Blog her posts? She deserves them! Can you please let me give Blog her posts again?




Dear (Name Here),

I'll get back to you tomorrow.

I feel your pain, I really do. And I think we share our Procrastination worker... that response sounds sadly familiar. Although I get it from Mr Muse, too, on occasion.

Very funny! I totally understand where you are coming from. Some days Motivation is hiding under the bed, and Procrastination is disguised in the form of day-time television..

Haha!! That was funny, and I can totally relate with your post. I'm struggling to find ideas too. Must be the hot weather... Either that, or my muse went on vacation and didn't tell me.

That reberto is becoming a pain. I see him everywhere; the least he could do is leave an inspirational post.

So sorry about your collective problems with posting Harley. We all get there some days.

I have a one time solution for you! Are you still posting for my milestones blogfest? I'll bet Blog would be happy to share your excerpt :)

I hope everything else is working well - except procrastination, of course. She seems quite busy on a lot of blogs lately. Mine included.

I feel ya! Couldn't even come up with anything for Donna's blogfest so I dug back in some old posts and resurrected one.

Good luck with yours!

I write down blog ideas, which helps when I can't think of something. I look at my notes so that I can eke out at least one post a week.

lol. This just made my day. I think that I might do the same thing when I run out of blog ideas.

I'm glad I started following your blog

Thanks for letting me read your mail, Anastasia. It makes you seem more human to me and me less like a snark to myself.
