I know I have been beyond neglecting my blog for a long while, and especially as an aspiring author there is really no excuse for it. I could give a million and one excuses about why I have not been writing or why my life is so busy but honestly it is because I have not been feeling inspired to write any blog posts. When I come here, daily I will tell you, I sit here with my fingers at my key board and nothing comes. I type up a few sentences and then the backspace button becomes my best friend. It is like the blog that I used strive to at least update with creative mementos is now slowly dying inside of me.
And is a blog really that important in the publishing world? To become that published author as you have always dreamed. For my dying inspiration unfortunately yes. It is seeming like more and more you need more and more to keep your readers and future employers entertained by your prowess and writing abilities. They want to see the ambition to keep your blog updated weekly if not daily, they want to see a twitter feed based on you where you voice your personality so fans can relate to you more easily. I know I personally want all of these things from my favorite authors. Have I too become more greedy of the authors I love but do not put myself to the same standards of effort and work? The answer is simply no. The blog shows the true answer of it which of course would be no. Not at all.
Of course I will continue to try to strive to push myself to think of the next new blog to write on here. Some nice witty advice I learned from my struggles or maybe even post some of my creative stories again. Little short blurbs that pop into my head and drive me crazy while working other stories and cannot possibly fit it in to what I am working on.
So many thoughts and so many ways to do a blog sometimes it boggles my mind, especially since I am relatively new to blogging itself. Maybe these are just new bloggers fears and syndromes and I will get in the habit of writing a new blog maybe everyday. Who knows? So far I think only time will tell.
Well off until next time!
