I feel like I'm inflicted with some sort of a bug. Nasty bug. Some bloggers call it writer's block, blogging funk, yadda yadda...though I personally prefer to call it, "lost my blogging mojo!" Yes mojo. Because it reminds me of my favorite Mojo Potato which I've never eaten in years. Yum! I miss it.
Just like how much I miss my blogging mojo. Which I should point out, is no fun when you lose it. No, not at all.
And though it happens to everyone, it still is NOT something to be happy about. Losing your blogging mojo is like a kid losing her favorite doll, or blankie or worst, her binkie! It's...how do I put it...sucks? No pun intended.Seriously, I hate it when it happens. Do you?
Here are some ideas I scour around the web to "cure" this affliction.

Yet you know what? Come to think of it, no matter what experts or gurus say, when you hit a roadblock like this, it's always easier said than done. So I'll wallow in my helplessness in a while. And you know why? It is good to take a break and give our brains a break, some times. To let life be just life. Just like a nasty cold, you have no choice but to let it take its' course.My not-so-expert-but-works-recipe? If you don't have anything to write...write about NOT having anything to write. Just like what I did today! Not a guarantee my reader, nor multitude of fans (ok I made that up) will appreciate but seriously, the thing is, I was honest about it. Like Oprah said, "the real people with their heartfelt true stories in my show are the driving force of the show (or to that effect).
And me? That's what I intend to do. To be real. Besides, this issue? It's always nothing but...temporary.
