Worth It! (Things to try, read, watch, hear, and discuss)

desk stress 2This weekend really got away from me! Actually, that’s true of all last week-lots of extra time at work, plans with family, and hosting a friend’s birthday party left me with very little free time. I’ve also been, for some reason, struggling with writer’s block this week. I started drafting posts on four different topics, and couldn’t seem to make any of them come together. Charles Bukowski once said that “writing about a writer’s block is better than not writing at all”, so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to mention that the words just aren’t coming this week. On a brighter note, I have four partially written posts that I’ll be able to finish when my brain is a little less addled.

Earlier this week, I noticed that I had crossed the 1000 followers mark on this 16 month old blog, which just blew me away. When I started this project, I had no idea what to expect, and I’m amazed that so many people are interested in my potpourri of reflections, reviews, and advice. So I definitely didn’t want to miss posting this week, and since I’m excited to be welcoming new readers, I thought I’d highlight a few of my earliest posts.

party time2As I mentioned above, I had a party a few days ago (and I’ve mostly finished cleaning up the house, so yay), which made me think about a few posts on the subject of entertaining:

I especially enjoyed writing the disaster posts, because I think they’re good stories and solid reminders of what’s really important. In my humble opinion, they’re worth a read (or a reread).

Have you experienced writer’s block in your blogging journey? How’s your week going? What’s new?

      I figured that if I couldn’t seem to write what I’d planned, the best solution was to write something else. And thank you! I love your reviews, by the way.

  6. Always happy to hear from your blog. Nice to hear about the followers. I don’t really get writer’s block often. If I do, I make sure to write several reviews in advance just to give my brain a chance to rest.

      I’m always trying to write posts in advance, but I rarely do. There are always so many other things I need to accomplish that I end up waiting on the blog until the day before (or the morning of).

      I understand that. Most of the time I don’t even think about writing during the week.
