B2007: Battling Blogathoners Block

Fiery Penguin

Every blogger takes some time before they hit blogger block, especially when they blog too fast without a general purpose or direction. Here in Blogathon, it’s almost impossible to avoid a bloggers block unless you know exactly what you’re posting. Yet even with me posting about cancer every hour, the remainder of these posts remain without purpose and direction to keep my mind from blowing a fuse if I struggle to keep coming up with factual posts.

I can only hope that some other Blogathoners out there especially those new to it aren’t having too much problems with their post. More often than not we get stuck trying to come up with the words to carry the thoughts in our head. If you don’t even have a single thought in your head to begin with, you need to take a break and take a walk, even if it’s just for 10 minutes or so.

Sometimes a little fresh air can mean the difference between an inspired mind and one that’s bordering on collapse. Having gone this far, I doubt you would want to give in now. Take a break if you need to. You can always come back to the posts and make up for it in due time.

This year Footsteps in the Mirror will be blogging to raise money for the Association for International Cancer Research which is a non-profit organisation that helps fund cancer research throughout the world. If you’re willing to help, you can sign up on the Blogathon website and pledge your amount right here. Help make a difference, no matter how small it may be.

  1. Whoa! I thought my RSS feed has gone nuts but it’s Blogathon time. Just popping in quickly to offer a little encouragement. Keep up the good work Kami! And promise me the next ‘ChickyBabe’ won’t involve porcelain bowls! 😛

  2. Thanks ChickyBabe. I was wondering whether you were going to drop by and say a word or so. I also promise you normal feeds will return in a few hours. 🙂

  3. I have a theme, but I hope whoever reads the whole thing won’t be bored to death by it. It was all about disabilities from post #1!

  4. Oh no, it wasn’t boring at all. 🙂

    Just that maybe you could try and talk about it from a more than just a local perspective. While I understand it well, it feels that its catering local (Malaysian) people. Since most of our readers are from other countries, they might not be able to relate to it that easily.
