Today is Thursday; time again for Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop. This week, I chose this prompt:

1.) The most challenging part about blogging for you is…

I began writing These Days Of Mine in September, 2010. My stats show that I’ve published 1,140 posts. (Considering I’ve prematurely published a few posts, which were immediately deleted, the correct number is probably more like 1,130.)

So, after all this time, the biggest blogging challenge to me is subject matter for my posts.

Do my readers really want to read yet another post about the swans, our cats, the wild horses at the beach, our adventures, sunrises, sunsets….?

I must admit, sometimes, at night, writing a blog post for the following day has the same pressure as homework does for a student. (And those of you who have known me a long time know how little I cared for school.)  There’s often a sense of relief on Friday and Saturday nights, not having a blog topic looming over my head.

But….just when I think I’m boring everyone, I’ll “run into” a friend or acquaintance who, upon immedately upon seeing me, tells me how much he/she enjoys the blog. A few even say that These Days is the first site they visit online every morning. Then, of course, there are all the sweet comments left by my readers.

And that makes the homework all worthwhile.
