Daily blogging challenges

NaBloPoMo November 2012 Prompt
Friday, November 30, 2012:

What has been the hardest part about blogging daily?

This question is a double whammy for me, as I’ve been blogging daily not only throughout the month of November, but also for the entire year!

And there are definitely some challenges to the practice.

I think the hardest part, though, has been the fact that some days I simply don’t feel like writing… or, along the same lines, don’t believe that I have anything much to say… but because I’ve decided that I will be blogging daily, I have to post something.

It can be difficult to push past the “don’t wanna” feelings and stick to my commitment.

But I’m proud to say that I’ve done it!

Of course, many of the “don’t wanna but I’ll do it anyway” days end up producing some rather substance-thin posts. It can be discouraging to realize that simply fulfilling a daily blogging commitment, while most certainly developing self-discipline, doesn’t automatically mean that the quality of my writing will improve.

In an ideal world, I would blog every day AND produce a constant stream of brilliant writing… but we all know that this world is far from ideal!

For the moment, then, I think I’ll just do my best… and hope to see a payoff some day.

Do you blog daily? What’s the hardest part for you?
