Blogger Aversion?

I may be experiencing blogger aversion. Every time I think to post on something, I think better. My head is full of ideas, but I can't bring myself to post anything. What's wrong with me?

  • Hey rose!

    Never hesitate, just post it.

  • I go thru the same thing, Rose. Seems like I get a lot swirling around in my head, but I can't translate that to writing.

    I see your award is now up! :)

  • The reason we see rings in a tree when we cut one in half and look at a cross section is because each year they grow a fibrous "layer" - but the layer only grows during on part of the year - the rest of the year that layer "hardens" - growth is often a process whereby we come into much knowledge, then that same knowledge takes time to cement itself in our understanding.

    Alternately, I am reminded of an old scene from old black and white sitcom - "the Munsters." Herman Munster is visiting his local doctor and the doctor is baffled because Herman has every disease known to man, but seems perfectly healthy nonetheless. The doctor's only explanation is that is must be like several thousand people trying to squeeze through a small door at the same time - no one gets through because of the congestion - which is I suppose to say that sometimes we have so much to say, and all of it seems to be relevant/important - that we can't put aside any one thing to articulate another.

  • Ebb and Flow, Rose.

    It's ebb and flow.

    You're normal.

  • Sooner or later we all go through that. I'm just kinda getting over mine.

    But fear not, the bug will bite again.

  • Hi Rose

    Your doctrine has let you down, again. Calvinists *never* have that problem :-)

  • I get like that.

  • Just post a hymn or a quotation. They make good fillers.

  • Hi, Rose! I sympathize. Just post about how you can't post.

    ...uh, you did that already...

    Sorry, not much help :)

  • Exist~dissolve,
    That reminds me of a film in which Sean Connery was featured saying that ... "never hesitate". I can't remember the film, though. (must be getting old) :~)
    Thanks for the encouragement.

    Gayla and Matthew,
    I am glad you understand.

    Daniel,
    Wow, I am amazed at your ability to think poetically about such a simple idea. You are really a terrific writer.
    God bless.
    I liked the munsters when I was young ... so long ago, like yourself. ;~)

  • Hi John Rush,
    I am normal! That reminds me of a tract I used to have called "the danger of being normal."
    You just made me think of it.

    Thanks for stopping by!


    Joe,
    Good to see you. Yes, I think if we didn't, then it would be really weird, like a Calvinist or something. ...

    Oh, um, hi there, goodnightsafehome!
    Well, keep on writing, then .. and don't let the doldrums of determinism get you down. (heehee - bet you can't guess where I go that saying, can you?) ;~)
    Thanks for the visit, Colin. :~)

  • Matthew,
    Good ideas ... I can always count on you for ome common sense, British style. Every blessing, brother.

    Hi Missy,
    Thanks for the visit. Have a great blogging day and read Bobby's article I linked to above this post. :~)

  • Rose,

    You certainly had me fooled! It seems to me that you post some of the most relevant, excellent work in all of blogdom. But, I can also relate. When pastoring full time, there were weeks that the sermons just would NOT come. I remember one such time. Then, toward the end of the week, it came so fast, I could hardly write it all down quickly enough! I remember preaching it, & it seemed flat to me, & I really felt like it had failed. But later that week, a lady going through a horrendous time contacted me out of the blue & said the sermon was exactly what she needed. I figured then that God had that planned. Who knows but that when the time comes, you will hit somone's need right between the eyes. You have mine more than once. May the Lord bless you as you serve Him today!

  • Anymore I try not to take myself so serious when I blog ... I try to keep it short and to the point ... but I sometimes get pretty verbose :)
