"Oh, this seems like a funny idea to write about! *starts writing* *loses train of thought* Uhh-- I guess not... *deletes post* Hmph."
More often than not I'm posting on my facebook about how I can't think of something to write. It's not like I cover any deep, meaningful topics either... it's just dumb shit that I know people will understand. I do that on purpose, folks. It's not like I don't touch on intellectual topics because I don't know anything about them, but because I feel like that is how you DON'T build a fan base. If I write about politics, someone isn't going to like it. If I write about skinny jeans, if it offends you then I don't want you to read my shit anyway.
Also, not everything can be turned into funny. Sure, there are hits and misses here at the sparkle, and that's what I'm usually trying to avoid, but sometimes it's inevitable. I get to that point where I'm like, "shit, I have to post something or these assholes won't keep coming to my blog!" It's like you forget there are old posts you all have probably never read before... fucking scroll, you lazy assholes. I worked hard on those!
I realized that my blog is a blog about nothing. No specific thing, just real life. I have no niche, I have no set audience... at any one time I can appeal and relate to anyone in the world, and that's why it's hard to write. I hate having to decide who I'm pleasing on any certain day. My blog is the Seinfeld of blogs. Far enough down the line, EVERYONE will relate to it, and love the hell out of it, and I will go down in history. The girl who blogged about nothing. Seinfeld 2.0... this shit could be a sitcom.
One more thing I wanted to add, just to get it out there... but if I post about not being able to think of something to write about, please PLEASE do not suggest ANYTHING that is serious, even in the slightest. Maybe say, "Oh Lauren, you should blog about how the color red makes your eyes feel like fire." or maybe "What about blogging from a dog's perspective?" Those are ideas that I could get the fuck behind... if you have a specific topic that you think needs an almost news-room review, send that shit to Josh. He can handle all those requests, he seems better at voicing his opinions on actual news than I am. I just don't have any fucks left to give.
If you have made it this far, you just read yet another blog about nothing. Wo0t!
