A Relationship Snag

I’m pretty sure this blog and I have hit a relationship snag.

In the beginning, things were new and exciting. I had an idea in mind of the type of blog I wanted and went with it. I was a little unsure, since I didn’t have a lot of experience with blogging, but I was excited to test the waters. We did the whole get to know each other deal where I shared lots of things, like some of my funny stories and my personal stuff.

And then came the commitment. Despite being a habitual quitter of all things, I realized that this blog and I were going places, dammit. Well, maybe we weren’t going places so much as chilling out on the couch with me giving it some attention between episodes of whatever I was Netflix binging on, but still–it was obvious that this wasn’t gonna be a one-night stand.


We went strong for about a year. In that time, I wrote, wrote, wrote (and deleted, deleted, deleted) and even tried some things I previously thought were off limits for this relationship.

And then one day there was nothing. I had told all the funny or otherwise interesting stories I could remember, shared all my nuggets of wisdom (of which there were few). I looked for help on making the relationship hot again, but that didn’t help as much as I’d hoped.

So here we are.

I know some of y’all have been struggling with blog post ideas like I have. I’m sure that as we get into the holidays and are exposed to crazy relatives, go to parties, etc. that those ideas will be flowing again.

Until then, I’m going to ask for three things you’d like to see me blog about.

Wait, I’m being too greedy? Especially when you’re struggling to come up with one idea for yourself? Fine, then comment with the one thing you’d like to see me blog about. And if I get enough tips, maybe I’ll write my own post called “101 9 Post Ideas To Make Your Blog FLAMING Hot, Bitches!”

*FYI: If you don’t give me a legit suggestion, I just might host a roast in your honor. See how you like that.

**This post is meant in fun.

***I could have made a lot of sexual euphemisms in this post, but chose not to. I like to class things up once in a while.

Whew, another post down, even if this is sorta cheating again.

    Interviews with your son; lists of all kinds, maybe of words you hate and words you love, the best and shittiest kids books you’ve ever read; embarrassing moments; give a lesson on how to do something that you think you’re an expert at; experiments of all kinds and then the results; photography; opinions of all kinds and rants or reverse rants in which case you’d be raving or praising; music; language; misunderstandings; communication fails or successes; what your hopes and dreams are for your kids; the most annoying sounds in the world; and the best ways that someone could comfort you when you’re not well.

  2. I would love to read about the best compliments you’ve ever received, how you’re using your razor on a regular basis, what kind of/brand of luncheon meat turkey you prefer, and what kind of hobbies you had as a child. 🙂

  3. Video games. You play video games. I play video games (way more than I should). What do you think of how women are portrayed in games? What is you favourite kind of game? Do you think the quality of the story enhances the game? Have you ever played any games online and what was that experience like? As a woman?

    Just a suggestion, I like to read blog posts first before I write. Sometimes inspiration strikes when reading someone elses post. Also too, look for writing or topic prompts.

  6. Let’s see…I’ve already felt the blistering, scathing ferocity of your blog badmouthing ways, so I certainly don’t want to be at risk of being roasted. 😉

    *insanely detailed tutorials for ridiculously simple things: How to Make a PB&J…In 28 Easy Steps
    *hobby/fandom stuff…the more obscure and specific, the better
    *your thoughts, opinions, and ponderings on celery

  7. I really enjoy anything you share with us. I like all the posts. I guess I just like you as a person, so I’m always happy when you show up on my dash.

    I’m new to the topic I’m blogging about, but not blogging in general. One thing I learned long ago is that sometimes planning it out too much or trying to make the relationship like this or that puts a strain on getting your words flowing. Just do whatever you want. We will be here. Fickle readers will be fickle followers even if you had the most perfect blog!

    So liberate yourself, if you can, and go crazy. Personally I think you’re the perfect hostess for blogging parties; I’ll bring the booze.

    • Thanks girl 🙂 ❤ I usually don’t care too much if I can’t get the words going, but I guess obligating yourself to blog once per day (especially without any ideas in mind as I did the A to Z thing) doesn’t help there!


  8. I love blogs that are authentic, no matter the topic. So I wish I had more brilliant ideas, but I prefer the posts that just flow from what’s real. That doesn’t mean you can’t do a “planned post” and write from a place of genuine reflection, but … ugh, I’m so lame. Either way, I love your blog.

    Also: do you intentionally make it so that we have to specifically go to your page to comment? It makes it hard to comment in reader and my commenting thing is janky as hell in a browser, so I was just wondering if you do that for a reason or?
