Writer's Workshop ~ Challenging? Yes!

Linking up with Mama Kat and her Pretty Much World Famous Writer's Workshop.

The Prompts:
1.) Describe a memorable first date.
2.) Write about a child you find inspiring.
3.) What do you find most challenging about blogging?
4.) Name a pet peeve you have about how other parents raise their kids. Go on…stir the pot.
5.) We often spend time and energy talking about people in our lives we don’t see enough of. Describe a person in your life you are in contact with often. What does he/she mean to you?
6.) If you could thank your mom for anything, what would it be? Create a video thanking her for something.

I'm going with Prompt 3: What do you find most challenging about blogging?
Where to start? 
First, let's start with time. I have 3 kids. Squeezing in me time that usually includes blogging (either writing or reading or both) is difficult. It requires me to make sure all kids are happy and occupied or I blog around them. Blogging around them means I start and then leave it for a bit coming back to it when I have yet another free moment. Blogging in the morning or evening when they are not awake is whole other issue. My son sleeps in our room on a pallet in the floor. That pallet? Just happens to be right in front of my desktop computer. Thus, no computer while he's sleeping. Hubby does have a lap top but I rarely get to use it when the kids are asleep. Cause he's using it for his ebay stuff or whatever.
Second, let's talk about topics? I simply almost never can blog every day because I do not always have something I believe is worthy enough to post. Or sometimes, thanks to the time thing, I know what I want to post but can't because of time.
Example: I've been wanting to blog for days about my NKOTBSB concert experience but haven't been able to. Everything I want to say is all jumbled up and then when I do have the time suddenly all that info is gone. Plus in regards to this I have pics I want to share and have yet to get them from my stupid phone to the computer or to my blogger thing.
Third, there's really no third. Or maybe there was and it just got lost in the jumbledness (that's probably not a word but deal with it, lol) that is my brain. I want to be one of those super awesome bloggers talk about/look up to but really, I don't see that happening anytime soon. I'm happy to post as I can. I'm not gonna lie, I love when I post and it gets good feed back. Either in the form of comments, tweets, or facebook. 
So there you have it. My blogging challenge. What's yours?


  1. I know what you mean. I can never get my thoughts and words to make sense, and I don't have time. It takes me forever to draft a post, then I come back to it and revise. It's crazy! Would love to hear about NKOTBSB though!!

  2. I don't have any children, which I guess makes me an outsider in the blogging world, but having taught preschool for 4 years and taking many classes related to children, I feel like I can at least understand what a lot of mothers go through.

    Since I am new to the blogging world I haven't really connected with any other bloggers yet, which I guess is my biggest challenge at this point in time. Also, just setting up my blog and knowing what to post!

    I do have the time to post now, because it's summer vacation and I'm a student, though when school starts again I imagine that timing will start to become a huge issue!!

  3. Short, sweet and too the point! I like it :) BTW, hit me when you write about the concert

  4. My biggest challenge is the pressure I put on myself & then I get so overwhelmed that I just give up!

    I think you're a fun blogger to read!

  5. I totally agree with you on time. There seems like there is never enough time in the world. My biggest challenge too is time. I never think I have enough time to do all the things I want to do or read all blogs and papers I want.

  6. @Jackie ~ Exactly! NKOTBSB Post coming soon. =)

    @Linda ~ Oh yeah! Starting a blog is challenge all it's own.

    @Everline ~ Naturally, well sometimes anyways. Of course I'll let you know when the NKOTBSB post is up.

    @Kate ~ That too! Thanks for saying I'm fun to read. =)

    @Angela ~ Seems that time is the enemy to all not just to blogging either.

    Thanks y'all for visiting and commenting.

  7. blogging is a challenge for sure. i stopped for a year and missed it so much. once you start it is hard to not do it.

    i find just a photo and a comment or little story is enough to feed my need to blog. maybe try that....for the times when life is too busy...just look for something that makes you smile throughout the day and take a photo...then come and share it!

    cheers and keep up the bloggingly good work lol bloggingly could be a word...sounds good for sure.

  8. Thanks for visiting! If blogs were around when I had small kids I would probably been a Mommy blogger.

  9. @Alisha ~ So true. On days I can't/don't blog I think about it. I like blogginly =)

    @bankerchick ~ You're very welcome!

    Thanks y'all!
