Earlier, I shared with everyone the difficulty I was having being an active blogger. At the time, I laid part of the blame on the fact that I only had my IPhone to create posts. I was really hoping to get a new laptop, and thought that once I got one, I would really be burning up the keys.
Well, I got this sweet little Dell Inspiron laptop, and guess what? Total silence. All I can say is that my reasons include writer’s block, and plain laziness. So what to do? As the old say goes; “Try, try again!” One approach is seeking incentives to write. So I am joining a Blog Party at “Susie Landau’s Wild Ride.” Putting your blog out there to a possible wider audience, does encourage one to create content, quality content for them to see
Some may have noticed I have silent for awhile. Multiple factors are involved. Primarily, I do not have have a working computer at the moment, What posts I have been able to make is via smartphone, and just do not have the thumbs for it. Add a touch of the flu; and a case of writer’s block, well, you can guess the rest. Do not know how this will all work out, but we will see what happens.
This post illustrates how stumped I am! The WP Daily Prompt for yesterday, Sunday, was “Stump;” today is Monday! I fully intended to write something; God knows there was enough ideas, with it being 9/11 yesterday; the Sunday Scripture readings; the news! But the thought of struggling with a cranky laptop, or an ancient desktop (we are still using XP!), dampens my enthusiasm. Right now, I am typing this on an IPhone (Thank God, not a GalaxySE; do not want to lose fingers!), and my thumbs are not trained for this. Well, right now, back to the real world of work; and hope to do better tonight. Maybe.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that this is the first time I am writing a post for this. I would also share with that this is first post I have written in over a month! There was a time that I was posting at least monthly. That I really got into the Blogging U. courses. That I now am having a hard time coming up with anything to write about; to share an opinion about, or have the energy to sit myself at the keyboard. That there was a time that I had high hopes for my blog, but now I wonder if all the reading, the posting was worth it.
If we were having coffee, I would let you know that I am an ordained Deacon in the Roman Catholic Church. I would tell you that last Sunday, I baptized three beautiful little babies (Two boys, and a girl), and welcomed them into the Church, into the Body of Christ. How I invited the parents, the godparents, and guests to open their hearts to the miracle that was happening before them; and be aware of the love of God they were witnessing.
If we were having coffee, I would tell that I need to get through this writer’s block soon, because next weekend, I am officiating at a wedding. I will be preaching a homily, and I need to write it this week. I will tell that I turning to the Holy Spirit, and asking her to blow hard and breakdown the roadblocks I have in my head and soul.
As I drain my coffee mug, I would tell you that I am typing this on one of the computers in the parish office. I have a desktop at home and an inherited laptop; both have had long service, and are kinda cranky in their old age. Anyway, I have go back to the church soon, to prepare for the next celebration of Mass.
I hope to be here next weekend, with another cup of coffee.
