Give Me A Little Inspiration

Here recently, meaning all summer long, I've had nothing to blog about. I've racked my brain and sent countless texts to Jordan telling her how I have nothing. No new fresh ideas, no exciting pictures, not even a little "about me" post for all my new cupcakes. Which, I promise to do...someday.

Just basically I have no blogging inspiration.

She's told me that I just need to go with the flow, I'm over thinking it, and sometimes I'm too hard on myself. And I have to agree, I need to realize all of those things.

So when two powerhouses team up for a link up about inspiration for blogging, what the hell do I even write about? I don't know how Sarah and Helene do it everyday. But they always have something. So major props ladies.

It seems to me that my material is a bit stale sometimes. And I get all depressed-crybaby mode on everyone around me. It's just that I really want to post for you guys and someday maybe be a powerhouse! But without post inspiration, that's not gonna happen.

I've noticed some of my posts that people love the most are about my job, because people love when you tell them fucked up stories of assholes who come in to restaurants. Others are about my dogs. It's still weird putting an s at the end of the word dog. I never thought I'd have more than one at a time.

And now here's the funny part, now that I've started typing something, I can just go with it and it works. Maybe I am trying too hard. Maybe next time I think I don't have a post I'll just open a fresh blank blogger document and go.

I don't ever want to give up this space. That's for sure. The thought has crossed my mind just because I don't seem to have as much to write about now. But then I get all sad panda and think of the amazing friends I would miss out on. I mean, blogging is more than blogging. It's talking to all my friends that I've never met, but someday I sure as hell will, be prepared. It's seeing how these lovely ladie's lives are going and gushing over the shit we can't stand, pets, or the shit that we want and love with each other.

And that's where my inspiration lies. With each and every person who comes and comments on this little space. With each and every blog that I just adore. Even the blogs I don't comment on as regularly as I should.

When in doubt, restaurant posts for real are the bomb. I worked in the restaurant biz for years and years, stories galore.

I love this post. I think a lot of times people (bloggers) don't admit that they are at a loss of words, but we all are sometimes. I think reading others and your personal life are the best sources for inspiration. After all. Bloggers are nosy people.

I feel honored and this may or may not have made me feel big headed today. :) Great post girl! And yes, just writing with no true direction can spark a great idea. Funny how that works huh?

Stopping by from the link up. Your honesty is refreshing. Sometimes we just don't know how to hold up our end of the bargain when it comes to coming up with fresh engaging material, but you know what thats ok. Keep blogging, its totally worth it!
