Something I Forgot


You’ll have to forgive me.  I wrote the previous post quite late last night and forgot to ask the question that prompted me to ramble like that.  When I sat down to write the blog, I was really wondering if people were in the same position as myself.  I wanted to know:

  • Is blogging easier or more difficult in your current situation?  Are you struggling to find content?  Is having more time at home making it easier?
  • Is your urge to blog the same as before or has something changed?
  • Are you finding that more people are online and therefore more people are finding your work (because that seems to be true for me)?

    I’m blogging just as much, but I find that I am planning a lot less. I’m just going with the flow and allowing content to come to me. It is much more organic, and I like it. 🙂

    I usually blog about group bike rides and events. I attend and video as many as possible. The content available is usually extensive. Now however, I find myself kind of filming different takes on the same things. Birds, boats, dogs etc. Interesting content is difficult to find. Fortunately I have kind of a pass on content because I’m participating in the 30 days of biking challenge. Much of the subject matter is similar, with the challenge, I am allowed to do episodes of different days.

    Easier, not struggling for content, about the same enthusiasm… I thought with the extra time I’d write more but I don’t. And that’s okay with me.

    I seem to want to write more in the current situation perhaps because there’s lots of material right now.

  5. retrodee says:

    For some reason, I feel like I have no motivation. I have a list of topics to write about, so I’m not out of material. But I just have no motivation lately. When I read other stuff, most everything that people write about lately seems to do with the dismal situation and most folks (although not you, Anthony 🙂 ) are complaining endlessly about the social distancing and being shut in. I think they aren’t too creative because most of my creativity comes from when I’m alone at home. Maybe this overall situation is depressing me and that’s why I don’t feel motivated to write as much. Hmmm.

    When we look back at this time what will we think about or wished we would have done during that time. All the things we never had time to do but now we do and we still don’t do it. This is a time to breathe and reflect. I don’t have a job and bills are tight but, I have time to do whatever I want to do. Yet, the day passes without me doing most of them. Why is that? I spend a lot of time applying for jobs I may never get. But, I have been on several great walks. Used Youtube to exercise. Made homeade soup like Oma, baked several loaves of bread. Had a visit with my kids. Enjoyed nature. It will be behind us soon (or fairly soon) and we will say… I should have done this or that during that time. I don’t blog so I can’t answer your question. You have lots of perfect moments. You have a job, you are healthy, you have time to do your hobbies. It should be easier. I understand you have to work from home but, lots of people would have loved to work from home. I had a job where no matter what I had to go in. No working from home. I really like working from home. I hate commuting both by transit and by car.

    I have plenty to write about but, most days, motivation eludes me. The dog, however, is getting much longer walks. Go figure.

    • Anthony says:

      My friends have also reported that their dogs now get plenty of walks because everyone wants an excuse to go outside.
      You’ll find the motivation to write when you need it most.

    Yes, having more time at home has made blogging easier. I have no shortage of stories to share; however, it seems like people aren’t as interested in reading about events from my childhood/teenage years. The lack of interest in those posts is a tad discouraging.

    • Anthony says:

      I am sorry that not enough people are reading what you’re writing. I hope it picks up for you. I have been reading, but after hours spent at the computer screen for work, leaves me less of an appetite to comment.
      I also haven’t been reading all the blogs I used to mostly for the same reason.
