I am Freaking Out

Am I NUTS???? I have signed up and committed to one WHOLE ENTIRE post PER DAY for one WHOLE month. Otherwise known as NaBloPoMo. Now I am nervous. Very nervous. I just got home and have a zillion things to do and probably the last thing I have time to do is play on my blog. But, I go and sign up for this thing. And I'm feeling pressure. I hate pressure. Am I crazy or do other people feel this way too? Sometimes I feel like all these thoughts running through my head should me my thoughts, not shared thoughts. Maybe people will think I am crazy if I really seriously blog about what I am feeling. Then I think. No. They Won't. They Can't. No. Wait. They CAN. And I don't care. This is my blog and I'll blog if I want to. Who cares what anybody thinks. Don't like it. Don't read it! I think that's why I started blogging in the first place. I just sometimes feel like everybody else has something interesting to say and mine is just all jumbled up with random thoughts. But that's the way I think. That's the way I process everything....all jumbled up together. And No....I haven't been drinking. I'm just stressed out.....REALLY, REALLY stressed out. And. It's Not Good.

I so get this. This is what I like least about blogging. But you're right, this is YOUR blog and you can break the rules whenever you want!

posts can be short. you can do a picture. you can tell a joke.

you can post at night and post-date it for the next day, which is what i do, since i don't have time to post in the morning.

but it should be a fun thing. if you miss a day, what will happen? nothing!

relax. it's fun!

I try and post everyday anyway, but I'm anal like that. I agree with Laurie- the internet police will not come get you if you miss a day. I promise!

Yes, I totally get it. Since I signed up a few weeks ago I have hit writer's block, when I had been posting daily for the last few months anyway. I need something to happen that I can really write about. :)

You do just fine. There is always something to bitch, I meant, post about.

I get what you are feeling, but just relax and enjoy it! I understand about the time crunch, so maybe what you can do is think out some topics now, and then when November comes you won't feel so pressured to come up with something new right off the bat. Sorta like planning out your menu for the week!

You can do this, and even if you don't make every single day, it's still a good experience.

I can't sleep until I have done at least one post on my site. Blogger of the Day doesn't count.

That said...I have another site of which I really avoid and never write on basically. It is probably actually better of a place, but I like it on my personal one. Aaaahhhh!

Is that rambling enough for you???

I 'just' wrote a comment on a thread in one of the groups I joined at NaBloPoMo about this. Last year I was so new to blogging and saw NaBloPoMo and joined up no problem. This year I jumped on board and to be honest? I'm getting a bit nervous myself. I mean I can always ramble, that doesn't seem to be a problem with me, but I also have the option of skipping a day if I want to too. Oiy!

This is my first NaBloPoMo too. I don't feel nervous but there are days that I don't want to blog. If I post and others come to visit I feel obligated to go visit them. That is where I panic. I don't have enough time to do all that. I just did my first Fun Monday, and that took a lot of time to go visit all the others.

You will do fine. You've had 5 posts in one day before...just spread them out :-)

dawn said...

Yeah, I keep thinking about about signing up. I have sort of committed in my mind, but I have been procrastinating, and practising by posting most days. I panic when I think about it. You are just as weird (hmm...I mean normal), as the rest of the world.

You could always make stuff up? Or save up stories between now and then?
