Have you ever come up against the proverbial brick wall? When you’ve lived as long as I have, I’m sure you will.

Let me tell you about my particular brick wall. Yes, confession time.

Despite the fact I’m a pretty prolific blogger and I’ve been keeping a writing support website going, I’m struggling with my blogging at many levels.  I keep wondering if I’ve bitten off more than I can chew with putting so many posts out across three blogs. Writing the posts are hard enough, sharing them, responding to comments and more importantly visiting and commenting on the posts of other bloggers….I just can’t seem to keep up.

Even more importantly, I don’t want to be putting out content that’s not really coming from the deepest part of me. And I’m afraid that’s what I’ve been doing of late.

Yes, I’ve had a couple of posts on BlogHer, like these and they’re worth celebrating.

How to Get More Mileage Out of Old Posts
But for me part of being a writer is trying to find my way to be ME. But as always, that’s not an easy task. I try to explore more of myself in my writing, but sometimes end up sounding and feeling like someone else. And blogging for me is all about interactions.

I’m trying. I really am. Please bear with me.
