Sometimes you just feel like your head is in a fog…You don’t know what to do next, or where to go.  You can’t see clearly.  So far, I really am enjoying blogging.  It is giving me some real mental stimulation while I sit here with nothing to do all day.

It could be just a light fog that is pesky, but you can make your way through it without too much trouble.  It gives you a tiny bit of difficulty, but after a little bit, you get back on track.  You might even get on a roll and find more topics to blog about.  So far, it has been relatively easy for me, as I have a specific subject to blog about and a ton of pics stockpiled to use in the blogs.  My grammar may not be the best in the world, but I am having a ton of fun writing.

Light fog

Or maybe it’s a dense fog.  You really try and try but you’re still not coming up with ideas.  It may take a few hours to get a small spark.  So, now you have an topic, but what will you use for the text?  You pace, you Google, you get flustered.  Eventually something comes to you and you write the blog you set out to write. Whew.  That was scary.

Let’s say you end up in the heavy fog.  You try and try but you can’t come up with a topic or the text.  This could go on for hours or even days.  Leave the house.  Read other blogs for inspiration.  There are some great books at the library as well.  Rose found one for me called “No One Cares What You Had For Lunch: 100 Ideas For Your Blog” by Margaret Mason.  There’s also one called “The Everyday Blogging Book” by Aliza Sherman Risdahl to help you get through this.  Take the time to read them.  They may help you out.  Talk to friends.  Distract yourself.

No matter how heavy the fog, always keep your chin up and be positive.  It will come to you.  Trust me.
