Because Life Happens

No Time To Write, Behind the Scenes of a Struggling Blogger

Days that are never-ending and nights consisting of only four hours of sleep. These revelations, no time to write, lead up to the topic of this post of “Behind the Scenes of a Struggling Blogger”.

Read my woes, feel my pain, glorify at my trials and cry over my tribulations; I have no time to write.

Vast majority of the information you have read from bloggers say that you must have a plan of action when it comes to being a professional blogger.

Spilling some Chardonnay in my wine glass, it dawns on me that I just might not have what it takes to be one of those professionals.

The brand of todays drink goes along with my mood at the moment. Stale and dry.

Reading the content of current bloggers and visualizing them explaining how they are all succeeding and empowering others to do the same.

Planning and a lot of research along with some hidden time here and there helped a lot of these bloggers replace their full-time jobs with their blogging jobs.

How I dream of that being a turning point in my life.

For me, there is much struggle in my way.  My full-time job is full of long hours that coming home from work to write a blog post is the last thing on my mind.  Fighting traffic just to get home wears me out quite a bit.

My husband upset because I don’t make it home in time to have dinner with him, or if I do make it in time for dinner, I just want to fall asleep right after.

Then there are those two days a week that I have off from that full-time job.  Those days are spent working on my E-Commerce stores – making products to post and sell.

Don’t get me wrong, I tend to come up with some good content to write about but the timing sucks,

I mean right in the middle of taking a shower a sudden topic will come up and I will try to remember to write it down so I can follow-up on it later.  But by the time I get out of the shower my mind and thoughts have moved on to something else.

Or like when I am at work and an employee or guest will say or do something and my thoughts immediately are – you need to write a blog post about that but I can’t stop what’s happening at the moment to write it down and I forget about it altogether.

I have the little notebook in my purse that I carry around with me just in case.  But I don’t always have the time to run and write things down at the moment.

The notebook on my iPhone is another suggestion to use when the inspiration hits.  If only I could say excuse me to a guest, walk away to write down that topic and some quick notes, and come back to finish listening to their complaints.

Great to say that there are so many topics that I come across on a daily basis to write about but I just don’t have the time to put it all on paper.

I have joined a few blog support groups to gain followers or at least get people to subscribe to my blog. [I have a whopping 22 followers at this date and time].  At times I don’t even have time to follow thru with them.

The time lines are hard for me to adhere to due to my daily life.   When I do participate in a thread and think I have completed a task, I get a message saying I am about to be kicked out of a group because I didn’t finish a thread.

It’s a never-ending cycle at this point for me.

Being that I went into this with no plan of action at all.

Jumped right in head first and now I sit here with my feet soaking in quick sand.


How about you, what is your biggest challenge with writing content?

Blogging was something that I wanted for my niece. She never followed thru so I started my own. Nothing specific just a lot of general things that I discuss because Life Happens and I talk about it.
