That’s me as in Aye @BhagNow, NOT Jack as in @JackVentures. He does just fine when he writes here and on his other blog over at “Not So Deep Thoughts” At least it feels that way for me anyway.
Yes, I had to write when I was in the “9-5” world, but I wrote the ever-so- interesting pieces like operations manuals, policies, proposals, evaluations, performance reviews, monthly and annual reports. Oooh the fun of writing in my world then, can you just imagine!??
This Travel Writing thing is more creative writing, and I suck at it.
We really do have so many stories to tell about our travels over the years as a couple, with our child, mother daughter travels as well as girls-get-aways. For some strange and unshakably annoying reason, I get stuck when I start to tell our stories and the stories feel dry and bland–ahhhh, just suffocating.
Over the past few months, I’ve stumbled upon many blogs with beautifully written posts. I am drawn to them. I cannot stop reading them mostly because I can relate to most of them. When I discovered Almostfearless a few months back I was well beyond words. I could not read Christine’s posts fast enough. Everything related to Location Independence, I have read about it. Am I any better at planning for our up and coming Location Independent Family– hmmmm!
I also follow blogs like Problogger. Some of the technical stuff I read go WAY over my head- leaving me frustrated not being able to figure out how to do things on this damn blog, how stumble upon is supposed to work, how anything works on the internet, actually. So much advice out there about how to, how not to, why you shouldn’t stop, why you should blog– I’ve probably read about all of them too. Maybe I’m information overloaded by now…. hmmmm!
Some days I’m really really passionate about it, full of ideas!! Other days, not so much!
And frankly, at this point, I’m stuck. I’m not sure what else I can tell you about this other than that I think I’ve made it *somewhat* clear that I’m feeling really down and blue about this “not being able to write very well” thing and not being able to figure out the technical side of blogging!!
Does it get better? Or Am I doomed?
One good thing I look forward to is working with like-minded women and the founders of Passports with Purpose! Causes like these give me the joy to go on and keep trying.
Now, I hope I can write a decent post about that!
