What Writer's Block Looks Like For A Blogger

Truth life: it's 8PM on Sunday evening and I'm s.t.r.u.g.g.l.i.n.g to find any part of my inner creative blogger. I have all these fabulous ideas but haven't had the time to put them in writing. I don't like skipping a weekday so I've been thinking and thinking of what to share with you. Once it became painfully obvious I wasn't going to create magic, I decided to just share what happens when I struggle with content.

When writer's block hits, I do what I know best ... I pick up a White Mocha and I create lists. And here is this week's miscellaneous list of Stephanie thoughts.

Last week, I shared with you that you can vote for my CandyLESS Easter Basket on Dollar Tree's Happier Easter site. Votes are still being counted so I would love for you to take a couple minutes out of your day and vote. Follow THIS LINK and look for my basket. If I'm lucky enough to win, I could walk away with $500! While I would love to buy things from my Momma Wants list, I think it would be much more productive to put that extra income towards Connor's preschool costs. And while you are feeling generous, if you wanted to vote for me over at My So-Called Chaos's site, I would love it. I'm up for Social Servant. I guess all that time on social media has paid off!

Tomorrow is the 3rd installment of Mom Talk Tuesdays. This month's topic is Baby #2 (or whatever number you may be on) and expanding your family. This is a great way to share your thoughts on growing your family (or not); the struggles you've had with finding the "right" time, your pros and cons, etc. Be open and honest. As a One & Done Momma, I love hearing your thoughts. I'll be sharing a story that will make your stomach ache from laughing at me while causing you to pray that I make it through parenthood. #promise

I started sponsorships at the beginning of the year and while I've been blessed to have so many people want to support WMM, sponsorships are a ton of effin' work. If I'm being transparent, I've made a little over $50 and feel like I've worked really hard for that fifty bucks. I'm going to be reevaluating what I offer in my sponsor shop and plan to make some changes in April. If you offer sponsorship programs on your blog, how in the world do you keep it all together?

And finally, I have a giveaway that you do not want to miss starting on Friday. I don't want to give too many details away but here's a hint: it's involves every stay at home Mom's happy place.

There you have it. This is the kind of post you get when a blogger hits a writer's block barricade. Hope y'all had a wonderful weekend and let's make the very most of your Monday! I'll be home all. day. long. cleaning, doing laundry and decorating the house. I know you're envious #ornot


  1. I kinda love the randomness of this "writers block" post! I hear you on lists of thing you want to write but haven't put together - I think people way under estimate the time it takes to write a post! happy Monday friend!

  2. Sometimes I just NEED to write posts like this... I have lots of little things to share, but nothing I want to write a FULL post about. It's a good way to get stuff on "paper" and get the juices flowing again, I think!

  3. List writing solves 90% of my problems. Alright that might be a bit of a exaggeration, but it helps me organize my mind so I can actually be constructive. Of course white mochas help as well!

  4. Girlfriend we've all been there. And besides, lists are a girls best friend!! ;) or at least mine, sometimes, ha! Can't wait to see what the giveaway is!
