Blog Post Struggles

I open up blogger with a thousand ideas running through my head.

Blank screen. Perfect white space for all of my great post ideas.

Excitement.

I write two sentences.


Excitement x2.

Wait, no, that post will take too much effort, I'll save that one for another day.

Delete.



Check my notebook for other potential blog post ideas I've written down.

Begin another post.

Write a paragraph.



Decide that I don't have any pictures to go with that post.


Delete.

Stare at the empty white space of Blogger for a little bit.



Brilliant idea strikes!

Start writing a few sentences.

Search Pinterest for links to add to the post.

Get lost in the deep, dark, black hole that is Pinterest.

Waste 2 hours.


Go back to Blogger and your 3 sentences.

Decide you don't have time to do that topic justice tonight.

Save as a draft.



Start new blog post.

Stare.

Stare.


Watch Netflix to spark inspiration.


Come back to Blogger.

Stare.

Stare.



Write blog post about how hard it is to write a blog post.

Laugh at how utterly stupid your post is.


Realize you'll be kicked out of the cool kid table.

Laugh because you were never at the cool kid table anyway.


Add Gifs.

Hit Publish.
