I've been trying not to admit to myself that I am burnt out on something I greatly enjoy: Blogging.
For the last month, I have found it hard to write the quality content that I hope you expect when you visit What Tami Said. Maybe you've noticed that I've gone from being a prolific poster to barely getting a couple articles up each week. It's true that I have a lot of stuff going on at home and work, and those things are stealing my focus. But I also don't know what else to say about this presidential election, which has come to represent the majority of my writing over the last six months. It seems that I have weighed every political angle, examined every bit of overt or covert racism and sexism, and dissected all the latest polls. I have campaign fatigue something awful and I will be infinitely grateful to have this thing overwith.
Sunday I found myself in a panic searching for something...anything...to post about. I've got wicked writer's block and the obligation I feel to post every day isn't helping. So, I am taking a break until next Wednesday, when I know I will have plenty to say (in my elation or between sobs). I want to take this week away to recharge, get inspired and think about the evolution of What Tami Said. If you have any ideas, I'd sure like to hear them.
I plan to come back next week better than I have been lately, with fresh topics, better writing and more must-read posts.
See you next week. Don't forget about me.
P.S. You want proof that my brain is fried? I forgot to tell ya'll that I got a post accepted on The Huffington Post! (Highlighted sentence is a link to the article) This is my first-ever real published piece and I couldn't be any more proud of myself. If you are registered at HuffPo, please post a comment. Many thanks to Jill Miller Zimon over at Writes Like She Talks for being a wonderful mentor and encouraging me to submit something to the site.
