When I first started blogging in my second year of university, the thought of posting daily, still, this many years later, was the furthest thing from my mind.
Yet here we are.
Daily posts to my blog are something I take a lot of pride in doing. I’m not familiar with any other blogs that pump out daily content, and while I’m sure they exist, they’re certainly slim in numbers.
As much as I love blogging daily, it can be extremely difficult to come up with new ideas to write about every day. I named my blog OnTheEdgeOfEverything for this reason; I figured I would need to imply my blog covers a wide array of topics since I would have to consistently find new inspiration to create new and refreshing content.
I sat down today to write a post and I experienced a rather severe case of writer’s block, which is any writer’s own worst enemy. There’s isn’t much that is as discouraging as staring at a blank page, the mouse cursor blinking impatiently, as smoke furls out of your ears while you try to think of something, anything, to write about.
I wanted to address the reality of being a daily blogger because I’m unsure if readers are aware of how challenging it can be at times. Don’t get me wrong, I chose to engage in this commitment, and by no means am I attempting to suggest that I didn’t know the work involved with being a daily blogger. That being said, I wasn’t entirely aware of how hard I would have to wrack my brain to think of something new to discuss.
I’m not entirely sure what the purpose of this post is, but I suppose if you can take anything from it, it’s that I’m trying my best to keep my readers satisfied. Blogging daily is no simple feat, but I’m pretty satisfied with how far I’ve come since I started.
