Question of the Week: Would You Miss Me If I Was Gone?

The discouraged Nenene suffering from writer's...Image via WikipediaI bet you didn't know that I have a blog buddy. It's Jamee from A New Kind of Normal: Living Abundantly with Chronic Illness.

Now the main job of a blog buddy is to offer feedback and encouragement, because sometimes writer's block hits hard and inspiration flies right out the window!

My friend Jamee shared with me that she was thinking about giving up on blogging last week because it seemed like so many things were conspiring against her, like: her health, her commitment to her darling little girl and her blogging platform. She wrote a post just yesterday where she admitted that she has been in a "blog funk." But I was also relieved to learn in the same post that she is picking herself up, dusting herself off and forging ahead with a new writing plan.

My conversation with Jamee got me thinking about my own struggles with writer's block and maintaining my enthusiasm for blogging when I too get overwhelmed by events and want to throw in the towel.

Thankfully those moments are few and far between, mostly because your comments are so supportive of my efforts here. It truly get the feeling that you really would miss me if I stopped blogging...

So this week, could you leave a little comment love over at A New Kind of Normal and give Jamee the shot in the arm she needs to get over her blog funk?

And thank you, my readers, Facebook, Twitter and Google Friend Connect followers for all the ways you continue to inspire me with your comments here, on Twitter and over at the Oh My Aches and Pains! Facebook page. In light of your continued support, I reaffirm my commitment to keep working hard to bring you great reading here at OMA&P!

So no worries; I'm not going anywhere ... well, unless the Universe decides otherwise.

Have a great week!

I relate to that blogging funk alot! I seem at a loss for words sometimes...and while people leave comments...not many people seem to "follow" my blog. Not sure if I am boring or what!?!?

Maybe you could give me a pep talk too! =)

I get in that funk sometimes too. The normal ups and downs of life I guess. I'm glad you're here and that you're blogging :)I would miss you if you were gone.
