In my recent years of blogging, the tally for my blog posts would reach around a hundred posts per year. With my consistency and love for the blogosphere came haphazard challenges and difficulties that I would love to share today.
One of the biggest difficulties I face is my repetition, whether it’s topic-wise or wording or sentence structure, there’s always duplications in my expressions. I’d argue that writing too much makes me forget I wrote the same line before, and that my style forces me to stay within my own guidelines.
Lack of content
As much as I try to squeeze my mind, sometimes my head is entirely empty of words, so there’s always that fear of not finding inspiration and content for the posts.
If you want to hit a certain blogging goal, you’re going to need a lot of patience and commitment. You have to have the same enthusiasm you had when the month started in order to fulfill the goal.
The more you write, the less likely you’re going to have all your posts read. And it’s understandable because people are selective, and it is impossible for them to read every article. (But that shouldn’t stop you as long as you blog for yourself).
A majority of my blog posts would be usually 200 words or less, and that’s never because I am not inspired enough to go beyond. However, writing too much forces me to save my words for other themes and prompts
This is perhaps the worst challenge of all because hasty writing makes me so regretful; I know I have potential, but I choose to write so fast and hit publish. Editing the post after it’s been up is quite futile, as readers have already read what you had to share.
I hate when a blog posts would come out different than I had planned, which happens too often. But the fun part of committing to such a number is watching your writing grow. I am pushing myself out of my comfort zone, writing about this and that. It now takes me a lot of scrolling through my blog pages in order to find a post as recent as a few months ago.
