Help I don't know what to write about...

   What do write about when you can't think what to write about.  Do you just throw yourself into it and hope for the best.  Or do you give up and hope tomorrow will be better.
  What if its not?  Is this a test of the universe to see if you actually can write under pressure?  Are the blog gods laughing at us?  Showing us they are in control of our writing life, not us.
   Okay, Uncle...Help...SOS....PLEASE.  Give me an idea.  I check all the usual places. The newspapers, other blogs, wiki,  the comics...Hey don't laugh you can get some great ideas there.  Nothing.  Not one little thing comes to mind.
   Now I am getting desperate.  I love keeping this blog up.  It helps me to de-stress.  It is my happy place .... Until I can't think of something to write about.

   Et tu, blogger?  

   Why have you turned on me?  What did I do to you?  I am sorry.  I don't know what for, but I am truly sorry.  Please forgive me.

    Nothing.  I still have no idea what I am going to write about.  I will have a blank screen staring back at me, laughing.  AAGGHHH.

   Wait.  What is this?  There are words on here.  There is a blog post.  Wow, how did that happen?

   THANK YOU,  BLOG GODS.   I will never take you for granted again.

   Wait did I just hear someone laughing!!!!

                               Here shall your worth be manifest to all!

Pamela Jo, you are so great..I loved this post! The blog gods are at work. I draw blanks at times too, but usually something 'clicks'
Thank you for your sweet comments, I hope the recipenet of the apron likes it as much as I do!

I seem to be blank all the time, not just when I am trying to do a blog post :-)

No problem for sending people your way at all! I myself was so touched when a fellow follower gave me a shout out...I figured if all did nice things for everyone how happy those blogger gods would be!

Hi Dogmom Diva, I couldn't think of a thing so I just started typing and out came this. The accidental blog. The apron was really cute.
Hi Al, I know what you mean. I do that a lot too.
Hi Blogger Girl, Yep if the blog gods are happy then everyone is happy.

Hello, karuski, Thank you very much for your complement. Some days are more of a challenge than others that is for sure.

Great post Pamela Jo. I draw blanks all the time with Channeling Ricky. When I am not at the computer, I have half a dozen ideas brewing. Then, when it is time to produce, information I want is not organized or I cannot remember what i was going to write about, or my ideas seem dumb.

Hi Sky Princess, Thanks for dropping by. I know what you mean I will sit down and be halfway through a post and suddenly think this is dumb. Then I have to find something else to write.
