My Mother Says I Should Blog More

Yes, my mother says I should blog more.  Thing is, I come here and writer's block sets in almost instantly.  I want to tell you how awesome my kid is, but that gets old to read, I know.

I want to tell you parenthood is hard, but as far as the audience of this blog goes, you either know that first-hand or don't want to hear it, because you'd give anything to experience it.

I know.

I'd like to write about how there are people I love who are fighting tough health battles.  But I don't want to be a downer.

I'd love to write about my five-year plan, but quite frankly, there are people in my 'real life' who feel entitled to chime in rather forcefully on major decisions.  People who can't seem to stand the idea that I might do something that isn't in their best interest, regardless of what's in mine or my family's.  And I don't feel like listening to it.

I love this blog and I want to spend more time here, but I don't know how sometimes.

So, help me make my mother happy.  What should I write about??

I totally get it. I know use my blog as more of a scrapbook for myself. I feel like it is super boring to anyone who reads it but I like looking back to my previous posts to read about how my boys were progressing. I have actually thought of making my blog private so my friend IRL can no longer follow.

It's a struggle to come up with stuff on a regular basis. One of the things I've been considering is using some of those writing prompt websites out there... sort of picking and choosing stuff that appeals to me or sparks my imagination. Hope you find your bloggy mojo again soon.
