Been sitting here for two days trying to figure out what to write about. Maybe something funny, maybe serious. It is a technology blog, why not write about geeky stuff. But I just can't figure out what people want to read.
Have you ever experienced that. Its horrible. I so desperately want to write something. But I am drawing a blank. I checked out the news, but all seems old stuff.
The scary thing is, I haven't been doing this for long. Some of you guys out there blogging have been doing this for years, and you still got material. How does it come to you? Is it in a flash, a dream. Do you have to make a conscious effort to come up with topics all the time. Don't you run out of ideas? What do you do if you do not have any ideas?
It's a horrible feeling. I feel the urge to write about something that people can use. Something that will make their life better. Something that will draw them to read more, invite their friends and family and say, wow this guy has some good stuff. But when you draw a blank then what?
This is a technological blog, it's supposed to be about programming and development, websites, and windows. Things like that. So I guess I will have to mention something about that. But I can't. All I can say is that it feels like when you are working on your Windows PC. Then it starts to run slow, and eventually it hangs. Using the three finger salute does not work, but at least you have the on-off switch.
How do I reboot myself? How do I switch myself off and on? I cant.
But I probably know what the cause is. It's probably stress. Financial difficulties, bills to pay. Bank manager beating down my door. Trying to put food on the table. Yes I know you all say, we have the same problems. But seriously, nothing like a few days of extreme stress to block everything out of your mind. But it does not stop there, because it's a never-ending cycle to destruction. The more stressed out you are, the more stressed out you become. I am now starting to stress about this blog. So I can' figure out what to write about because I am stressed, and then I get stressed because I have nothing to write about.
So now I come to you out there. Somebody put me out of my misery. Help me out here. I am asking for some ideas. Don't you want to help me out here and post some topical ideas that I could write about. Something that you might find interesting.
