The following was inspired by a true story:

There I am sitting in front of the computer at my desk. I go to my blog Mikeinmidwood. (if you didnt know what site your on here it is). I check the comments and then check the "Other sites I visit". I think I need to write a post but what? I click on new post and I just sit there waiting for something new or a good idea to come up. Hmmm.....sports, nah! I dont talk about sports. I dont want to do another Shadchan post for a while either. What, what is there what is there to write about.

So I just sit there for a while looking at a blank screen. (almost blank). (Speculating) How does put up so much? Its like he has so much time on his hands to find these things. anyway I got to think of a post. Oh! Ill look at my labels and see if they give me an idea. Nope nothing there. Will I run out of things to write very soon?

I could make "a you write your own post post". It could work as I just put up a post saying in the comments write your own post on anything. That wouldnt be a bad idea so if you want in this posts comments write you own post. Its for the people who have a blog but they want to write something that wont fit with thier blog. Anyway, then I start thinking of the weirdest topics. Usually those weird topics dont make it in but this time it did.

Finally, inspiration has occured, with blazing speed I type up the new post. ( I am actually a pretty slow typer). Its called I just had nothing to write about so I decided to put up a post where I have nothing to write about. (Just this second while writing this post I got an idea for a new one sometime with in the next 24 hours it will be up).

There is a post I wanted to write but I didnt have enough information and is being worked on in my head its called "SHUL POLITICS". If anyone would like me to post about something comment about it and I will try.

10 people gave their 2 cents:

I've done that, I think I actuall have a couple of posts that say that I couldn't think of anything to post. Oh, and I answered your comment on my blog about the cat.

That's why its good to have a topic for the blog. Like by me, I always have stuff to write, cause I think of the topic then I think about what relates to it, or I tie in other things to it. Just lately I got other papers/speeches to work on, so I work on that first, and then once I'm done with it I post it.

You can look at the news for inspiration of something to write about. Doesn't have to be politics or sports, just any news feed.

Its not a big deal not to post. Blogging should be out of want, not need.

I'm with Moshe on this one - for not having anything to say, you said quite a lot. And you don't have to feel obligated to post if you have nothing to write about. It's your blog, no one's holding a sword to your throat.
At the same time, this post was amusing to read :)
