My word of the week is stumped.


I seem to have a pattern. I will blog and blog and blog but it will never be that brilliant and then one day a post will just come to me and it will be as if it will nearly type itself. At that point I will think I am finally getting the hang of this blogging stuff but the days or week that follows I will have a terrible case of writer block.

I will play and fiddle about with my iPad for ages typing and retyping posts that I think are good but then when it comes to reading it, I won’t like it and swiftly hit the delete all button. (which is quickly followed by regret)

It’s happened at least 3 times since I started my blog and recently was no exception.

On Sunday I wrote a lovely post involving my kids and a trip to park. It was so easy and I thought (again) that I was starting to finally get the hang of it and I would be able to write great, thought provoking blog posts about stuff I loved and actually cared about.

But everytime I tried the words would just evaporate from my mind and I would be left


With what to say. I would have loads I want to talk or type about but the actual putting it into words part just wouldn’t happen.

I am hoping with more time and a lot more practise that I can move past this. So that it doesn’t happen on a almost weekly basis because I love blogging and I love having somewhere that I can ramble and rant. I love being able to put my feelings and experiences somewhere. Most of all I love that fact that me and my kids will have something we can look back on and enjoy all the memories and fun times we had.

  1. Oh no, how frustrating! You’ve written this post, though, so all’s well there! I don’t delete posts straight-away if I’m unsure of them. I keep them in drafts and revisit them and re-write bits every now and then, before either polishing them up, or deleting them – saves you that regret moment. I say that if you enjoy it, keep at it! Thanks very much for sharing and joining in with #WotW

  2. That’s exactly how you need to think about it hon – its a record of your days together – don’t think about the potential reader – just describe what you did, how the day unfolded – that’s what I do and the words nearly always flow readily if I have some time to put my mind to it! If nothing else it is fun to remember fun happy times! X #WotW

  3. Oh I know that feeling well.I have many draft posts, most will never get posted. Still trying to find my writing groove, but as long as I record the moments we have I can always go back and edit the posts. #WotW

  4. I think that you just write it as how it comes. I have lots of this post that i felt that is not good enough but thats really how it is. If people dont like it.. its okay now as I dont really have a glamorous & dramatic everyday life anyways.

    Plus practice makes perfect. Eventually every words will just flow and writing a post will be as normal as breathing. Saying this I have to follow this advice myself hehe.
