Monday Morning Coffee- Blogging Setbacks

Good morning. I see another week has gone by, although it seems like a year. This morning I am looking at some of my blogging setbacks, and not feeling so good about it. As you remember from last week, I broke my arm and can barely type, which has affected the work on my blogs.

sharing blogging setbacks over coffee with friends

Typing with one finger, while pain radiates through my other arm has been one of the the biggest blogging setbacks this week, but not the only one. No, there are several reasons our blogs, or websites, can derail from the course we set. I am very disappointed that I haven’t been able to get all the posts I want on my blogs. Pictures are usually my main issue because I try to take my own for each post. Resizing, making sure the exposure is good, and other editing takes time. Add to that my desire not to bore people to death….well, each post takes time.

Blogging setbacks also occur because of emergencies, real life obligations, weather related issues that could knock out power, or cause neighborhoods to be evacuated as was the case with recent wildfires and flooding across the united states. We have no control over these things, and at the time blogging certainly isn’t the top priority. Later though, especially for those of us that work online, it can be a minor or a major setback.

Sometimes I know we can get overwhelmed if we get too far behind. Some people try to catch-up, but that never seems to work for me. I have learned that we all need to just do our best, and if that means we don’t get our blog posts up as fast as we want, then so be it. Like today….

Today I woke up, had to get myself situated, take my pain pills, elevate my arm, and then open the computer….only to realize today is Monday, time for coffee with friends. well, I figured you wouldn’t care if there wasn’t a pretty picture to look at. Nor would a friend care if the sentence structure isn’t correct….it is more about dealing with what life gives us than what we want, or had planned.

I hope you all have a good week…..and if you are having blogging setbacks too, just start from where you can and not worry about what you can’t do. As friends we all have something to share with each other, and that is what counts the most.

  1. You’ve been in my thoughts, Kathy, and I’m delighted to find this post here. Remember, for most things, there is always time. Few people stick to a rigid blog posting schedule, and those who do might end up writing posts when their heart isn’t in it (and that can show). 3 months from now, new and regular visitors won’t be backing away from your blogs simply because you were quiet over the summer.

    Lovely photo today, and we all enjoy your images, but don’t let photography become a chore. There are other options, at least until you’ve had a chance to give this your full attention once more.

    Take care and get well soon.
