Pondering with a Purpose

This Week's prompt:  Blogging Rut?
I have observed that many people loose interest in something often because it has become a chore, or mundane.  It could be cleaning closets, weeding the garden or blogging.

I have found a few things that keep me on track blogging.  First of all take it easy.  There isn't a law that says you have to post every day.  Take a week sabbatical.

As you read posts, look for a way to help someone.  It may be looking up a recipe for them, offering encouragement, or sending them a warm greeting.

If you feel compelled to post, keep it simple--maybe just a quote or a joke.  Add variety.  You can break a pattern.  If you always post your thoughts on say, Tuesday, mix it up, post a picture instead.

Don't forget to surround yourself with people.  Our online friends are important, but so are touchable one.  

So I guess that I could sum up how I keep from getting in a rut, by saying Make things fun, project yourself, and strive for variety.

Today's post is late because blogger was down.  But I was able to get some extra chores done instead of posting.


  1. I think we all get in a rut from time to time. It's good to take a break every now and again.

  2. I didn't notice you were late... see? There's no time line on blogging. That's one of the things I love about it is that it will still be there when I get around to coming back!

    Thanks for pondering with me!

  3. interesting to read about fellow bloggers and what they think about this...

  4. You know the hardest thing for me is really long blogs and sometimes I do the same thing to my readers - I need to shorten them up. sand ie
