My fingers are heavy over the keyboard, my sulky face is reflecting in the monitor whose dark face is grinning back at me with expectation. Its not pretty. I am in a blogging depression state, no hiding from it. It has been convenient that the Internet is expensive hence I dont have much of it to use, thus I have a good excuse, but the truth is that I just don’t feel like writing. And its probably one of the first things on the How to Blog rule book, in fact, I am sure it would be on the first page of “Dont ever do these” Chapter, but I am obviously not doing that great as it is, so I doubt this will hurt my stagnation any.
The trip is great and I have lots of pictures ready and waiting, lots of thoughts brewing and stories to tell. There is no lack of that going. I hope the brick wall that awaits me here lifts soon, because I will be way behind, I am not even sure I can catch up as it is.
See, I am sitting here with head rested on my hand, trying to write. Or maybe its the question why that I cannot answer for myself…
Sorry for everyone that is awaiting glimpses of life from my end. You know who you are. I will be over this hump, it never takes me too long.
You owe us nothing! You go on enjoying this adventure however you want to!
Perhaps you could get a little audio recorder so you could have a verbal diary of this trip for your own benefit? Might be less overwhelming than sitting down to type all the time?
Enjoy and namaste, amiga.
I do love your blog posts, but there is no pressure. Have fun and enjoy this unique and special time with you family. We will be here.
I was wondering last night where you had disappeared to and how you guys/gals were holding up. Glad to see this post and know you’re ok and just suffering writer’s block instead of a lack of something to write about :-)
As always, I look forward to getting to read your latest blab on your grand adventure. Maybe the Travel Channel will pick up on your blog and pay you for your own show :-) Wouldn’t hurt to submit it to them I think! Then you could travel indefinitely.
I agree with the others, just enjoy your trip and write what and when you feel like it. :)
Enjoy your trip! I do look forward to your posts and live vicariously through you, but don’t feel pressured. I don’t know how the others feel, but I would just be content with a post full of pictures, after all pictures are worth a thousand words! ;)
I prefer quality to quantity anytime! Don’t let your dream trip be hijacked by blog pressure. Good stuff is worth waiting for and your posts are always an inspiration.
Dont get me wrong, I dont feel pressure from the blog or all of you. I usually enjoy the lengthy process of getting things up, especially knowing that I will be reading them back in months to come with pleasure.
Silvia, that might be an option, if words fail me.
Hugs to all.
Maybe dont look at this as just a blog while you are on your trip – think of it as a way for you to document your trip for your kids to read when they get older. Im sure they will never forget the trip itself, but there are some of the smaller details that get lost over time. Dont “blog” – just type a story to your kids! Happy travels!
Just remember that your job is to live your journey and enjoy it – not to feed us your delicious thoughts (as much as we enjoy them). We want your time spent with joy and your family – all else will fall into place – at least that’s what I learnt from a wise friend :)
