It is not like me. I am usually able to publish two-three articles in a week. In good days, even almost everyday. My blog, which has started since March 2005, and is over 3 years old, is a standing proof about how consistent I have been.
But not now. I have been occupied with lots of things lately which practically drain my ideas of writing. I have been working hard for the upcoming launch of Indonesian Expatriates Dot Com. I have also been busy with other personal matters, that just to find 2 hours to sit down and think then write is almost impossible. That, and not enough time. See, unlike some people (like Rob, for example who could post 3-5 articles in 1 day and doesn’t need some beauty sleep!), it takes me up to two hours just to write down one post. Most of the times it is because I need some more research to back me up, and before I knew it, I got distracted, looking at other people’s blogs (which makes me stay for more than 10 minutes to read related post and other interesting posts in each blog).
I have one article ready to publish but I have to wait another blogger since we promise to publish it at the same time. You know, kind of like duet. I have other 4 articles, almost ready, some of them have been in my draft box since months a go, but I don’t feel like publishing them.
I have been tossing around some ideas, but haven’t go the ‘itch’ to write them down. And I just read my last post, which is exactly 7 (!) days a go. Oh no!
I wonder what other bloggers do when they suffer from a dry spell?
What do you do?
