My Heart’s Not in It # MFRWauthor #blogchallenge #amwriting

Published by Cathy Brockman on

It’s week 41 of the Marketing or Romance Writer Blog Challenge. This weeks topic is blogging inspiration. My post will be very short as I am not very inspired to blog.Truth be told, my heart’s not in it anymore. I never know what to write about that will draw readers. I have tried umpteen things but all a fail.

So my blogging inspiration is this MFRW challenge. I have managed all but one week and that was because my computer was broken and I fit it in the next week. I do post an occasional spotlight and review for a few friends releases. I hope soon to begin posting a teaser again once I get more of my story edited.

That’s my inspiration. what’s yours? Any tips to inspire me? now let’s go see what inspires the other bloggers.

I tried an A to Z blogging challenge once; I think I got to “N”. I applaud you for trying twice 26, in a 52 week commitment. As for inspiration, both personal relationships and experiences I’ve had while traveling prompt me to write. Encouragement from friends and competitions like NaNoWriMo help to. Have a great weekend, Cathy!

    Oh Tricia that A-z was a bugger lol . This has been fun. I do NaNo as well but otherwise I am stuck.

It’s hard to know what to write that will interest people. The MFRW blog challenge prompts have provided me with more inspiration this year as well.

    Cathy Brockman · 10/13/2017 at 6:26 pm

    I agree Maureen

Nothing wrong with being honest. I’m the same way at times. I have to want to talk about something and if I don’t, then I won’t.

    Cathy Brockman · 10/13/2017 at 6:25 pm

    It’s so hard finding interesting topics that’s why I enjoyed this challenge with them being handed on a silver platter

Sherry Lewis · 10/13/2017 at 10:00 am

I sympathize completely! I’m in exactly the same boat.

    Cathy Brockman · 10/13/2017 at 6:23 pm

    Hopefully we will both find the time snd work it out!

Misty · 10/13/2017 at 10:59 am

Exactly! I can relate to this post so much. I’ve failed to blog for many months now. It is crazy. I

was in the habit of blogging every day but once Jemmik was born I wasn’t doing that I’ve never quite gotten back to it.

    Cathy Brockman · 10/13/2017 at 6:23 pm

    It’s so easy to get out of a habit I hope this challenge continues next year

Helen Henderson · 10/13/2017 at 11:17 am

I’m like you. Blogging doesn’t come easy or natural. If I’ve been more consistent this year it’s because of the challenge. It will be interesting to see if it translates to expanded followers or more sales.

    Cathy Brockman · 10/13/2017 at 6:21 pm

    I was wondering if it was helping you guys sales. I have noticed more traffic

Robin Michaela · 10/13/2017 at 1:42 pm

Something I’ve learned through this challenge is to get out of my own head. I may not think I have something to write about, but I’ve seen an uptick in blog traffic, so I must not be too boring, lol. I’ve enjoyed reading your posts this year – hang in there!

    Cathy Brockman · 10/13/2017 at 6:20 pm

    Thank you Robin! I signed up for your blog and your new book looks right up my Alley!

Mary J. McCoy-Dressel · 10/13/2017 at 5:23 pm

It’s a struggle for me, Cathy. I had to create topics to write about as a reminder to blog. This blog hop has helped, but being so busy with writing, it’s hard to find time. Congrats on only missing one week of this blog challenge, but, hey, you made up for it the following week.

    Cathy Brockman · 10/13/2017 at 6:19 pm

    Thanks Mary this has been good for me. I am going to try more things next year but hoping things to draw attention to my work.

Raine Balkera · 10/13/2017 at 9:37 pm

Thanks for sharing, Cathy. I have been blogging since 2005 and have yet to create a following! My Asian Dramas blog is that old and only 21 followers but lots of ‘views’. I get discouraged lots, but I still can’t help wanting to blog, so these types of challenges really work for me. Maybe more people are ‘reading’ than responding, like in my case. LOVE the Halloween theme, too!

    Cathy Brockman · 10/14/2017 at 12:43 am

    Thank you Raine. When I did blog I had at least three that read and commented regularly a few likes. It’s possible more read like you said. Once I get this book ready for publication I plan to figure out s few more days a least one a week with teasers or snippets.

Ed Hoornaert · 10/15/2017 at 2:20 am

For someone who’s not inspired to blog, you do a great job!

    Cathy Brockman · 10/15/2017 at 8:50 am

    Thank You Ed! That means a lot!

Flossie Benton Rogers · 10/16/2017 at 9:47 pm

We all have blogging dry spells, and I applaud you for the regimen of weekly topics. Man, that is hard. You always write such interesting things though. You’re good at it!

    Cathy Brockman · 10/16/2017 at 11:10 pm

    Thank you. I hope to going back to a couple posts a week soon.
