i don’t know

Here it is.

I have nothing to say. I’m doing that thing. That annoying blogging thing where I say I don’t know what to say and what is it all for anyway.

I’m not mad or sad or really anything.

I know this is a common thing. It’s funny, right? That those of us who blog go through blogging fatigue and that it’s common. That’s funny.

I’ve been feeling blah about using this space for a while now and I’ve been blogging for, oh, a piddly eight months.

I’ve seen a few others out there feeling the same way. The same I don’t know and a shrug of the shoulders and coming to a sort-of conclusion.

I don’t have any grand statements to make.

I’m going to go along and not take myself too seriously and in a few minutes I’m going to eat some Cadbury Fruit & Nut Bar, the old lady of chocolate bars, and zone out with Scott.

And say this.

I really, really enjoy the blogs I read. I never thought I would be someone who blogs. To be honest I used to mock it. I didn’t get it at all. But, I got talked into it and here I am. Not mocking. There are some fun, funny, poetic, and smart spaces out there. You people can write. And craft. And photograph. And inspire.

Swept Up


In the Cadbury Fruit & Nut Chocolate Bar
I love this chocolate bar. It may be the old lady of chocolate bars but it is one of my favorites.

    Personally, I’m a fan of raspberry and dark chocolate.

    Thanks for keeping me on the list of blogs you read. Your “nothing to say” is actually “something to say” because I have often felt the same way. So I’m here to say “ditto.” There’s something affirming about the blogging experience.

    You are not alone! It’s hard to write something interesting everyday! I feel like there is an expectation that I must attain… I feel like I am running out of things to say that I haven’t said 15 times before…lol.

    I love this part…This is what talented people do/say/think right before they do something really great.
    We’ll all be here waiting…

    ygw, i love and i mean love raspberry and dark chocolate. there is a chocolate store close by that makes the most amazing raspberry dark chocolate truffles you will ever eat. i am getting all carried away! they are that good.

    tziy, it’s a challenge to keep coming up with stuff and not have it be redundant. sometimes i think i could just do post after post on chocolate and tv shows that i love, but i’m thinking that might get a bit old. oh wait. i do that.

    suz! ummm….okay…i just teared up a little. i don’t know what to say…thank you, my bloggy friend.

    The hardest part is the time element. In order to do this – you automatically take time away from something else. Generally – for me, it’s housekeeping. Sure I find myself doing a little blog reading at work when I SHOULD be doing something else – but I do ultimately get my work done. And taking care of kids? Well – you don’t really get to drop that right? But housework? That’s not really high on my priority list now. The laundry and kitchen are priorities – but otherwise, I think it’s safe to say that the dust is about an inch thick at all times.

    Heidi, you can write and inspire, too. I know when I come to your blog I’ll read something touching no matter how blah you might think it is.

    And I understand as well. It’s hard to think of new things to say or new ways to say what’s already been said. Sometimes a little break helps, but I’ve also found that the more I read or see or explore in life, the more ideas come to me for the blog.

    So just live for you and enjoy it. Trust that the rest will come and you’re not done sharing just yet.

    Enjoy the mental break and the chocolate! Sometimes just mellowing out and DOING nothing, including NOT blogging by posting a “this it not a blog post” post, is GOOD. Good on you! 😉

    Love your blog, too!

    i hope nobody thinks this was some ploy to get love. i don’t want to be a whiner. i’m sure a lot of you go through the same thing trying to come up with something where it doesn’t feel like you’re on repeat.

    thank you all!!

    We all get tired of blogging once in awhile. This is my 4th year blogging — when I get bored, I re-design my blog and I get interested again. And as a matter of fact, I just did that! And voila! No more bored!

    Heidi, I think that just like in the non-ether world, it can be comfortable to just hang out with people you like, not say much and eat chocolate, and it’s good to feel able to do that in your blogspace too. I don’t think we need to apologise for that. No-one is up all the time, no-one has something to say all of the time – it’s normal. I need my space to reflect who I am (even when I occasionally feel like having a bit of a whine) and I like it when other people’s do too. I like it that you’re having a non-blogging blog day. Enjoy your fruit and nut!!
