On Blogging & Procrastination

Blogging is something I strive to be better at, and what better way to get better than to actually blog about something, amirite?!

I can’t say what makes bloggers procrastinate instead of posting more blogs. It’s not that there’s nothing to write about – there are a thousand things at any given time one could post about. The problem for me, as I’m sure a lot of other bloggers can attest, is that I over-curate my content. I come up with a great idea for a post in the shower. I get out of the shower and write it down. I re-write the idea another way. Then another. Then I think of a reason it might not work. Then multiple reasons why it won’t work. Then I don’t post. Rinse, repeat.

Additionally, having  a day job where you spend 95% of your day in front of a computer screen tends to make it difficult to want to spend more time in front of one in your off-hours, even if it is for a leisure activity.

So what do you do to give yourself a push when you need it? For anything – not just blogging. Where do you find creative inspiration?
