Blogger overwhelm

27 thoughts on “Blogger overwhelm”

  1. I wrote consistently for two months and then last week was all about travel. For the past three days, I felt so exhausted that I couldn’t even write a word. Somehow I planned today’s schedule last night and managed to stick it. Pre planning on the night before works well for me. Loved this introspective piece.

      1. For me, distraction is every single thing that diverts my mind be it my phone notifications, kids, office pressure or even a thought of finishing my household pie ups. So, when I sit to write a blog now, I close all the other windows on my laptop, be it fb, twitter, web whatsapp etc. I prefer writing only when kids are in school or sleeping and I have mostly done my cooking and other misc stuff. I need a peaceful mind and atomosphere to pen something nice.

      2. You are right Vartika. Happens to me all the time. Only after you settle down to write something that a pending chore or phone or courier or something comes up…Totally distracts you and you lose a considerable amount of time attending to it. FB has become a major distraction for me nowadays…Let’s work through our distractions and share what works for us. This is really nice…to chat with friends who face almost the same issues though miles apart. Thanks for sharing …lets try our ways and come up with what works for us and share soon.

  2. I definitely agree with your reasons! I think we get a lot of things done when we are pressed for time. And sometimes when you face difficulties in blogging regularly because you don’t know what to write about, all you got to do is just write about something!

    1. Thank you so much. Feels good to know you are not the odd one out here. And yes, as you rightly said, just write about something…anything. I have seen in the past that it works for me…when i sit down to sit, thoughts automatically pour in. I guess that’s the trick. Thanks so much for the support. Really appreciate it Reema.

  3. Blogger overwhelm ! What an apt word . I too find that the little iPhone comes between me and my real world leaving my unstructured time completely over run with typing words on Blogs that no one reads …..

  4. Dear Kalpana,

    You stole my thoughts. I have a few good post topics in mind but have been very unstructured with my schedule off late. And like Sunita said distracted by the iPhone too.
    Think I need to get back to my fixed routine of writing from 9:30 A.M. to 1 PM and not let it deviate for anything.
    I need to get some content going on my blog.
    When I deviate from my structured timings my blog suffers.
    I’m hoping to do so today and tomorrow as then I’m away traveling for a week. But hopefully I’ll come back armed with some great stories post my travel. 😊

    All the best to you for overcoming bloggers overwhelm and getting back in action. I do enjoy your writing, so keep them coming. 😊

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Natasha. I love your writing a lot too. Words like these are so encouraging and makes me want to write more. And it is so nice knowing that i have company in my ordeal and i am not alone. Being unstructured and smartphones are the biggest hurdles i am facing currently. But now that i have put it down on paper i feel i can handle it. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. Means a lot!

      2. Yes, Kalpana just published my “longish post” Ha ha, after eons. Thanks for the impetus. Really glad to connect with you.
        Also would you know where I can buy bamboo toothbrushes and recyclable straws, or paper ones?

        Thanks a bunch. 😊💓 Have a beautiful week ahead.

      3. Omg! Just read your beautiful beautiful post! Loved it! You painted such a vivid picture of the place that i fell in love with it even without visiting it. 🙂
        And thank you so much for your generous kind words. I am so happy to have connected with you.
        About the toothbrushes – you can buy them at http://www.bambooindia.com (their packaging is eco-friendly too)
        And I bought my stainless steel straws from Amazon (though it comes in plastic packaging), as I couldn’t find it in farmer’s market. Thank you so much for the interest shown. Hope this is helpful.
        Keep writing. Waiting for your next post!

      4. Btw, better to go for stainless steel straws as you can wash them and use them for long. And buy straws along with a straw cleaner. Most of them are sold with the cleaning brush. Better to buy them to avoid any hassles latter looking for cleaning options.

  5. I am glad you stumbled upon that quote and worked towards it. All those ideas that you shared work for me. I don’t get assignments because I usually reject them. Having said that, I am glad that I write what I want to write and with a schedule.
    Looking forward to read more from you.
