One of the things that always scares me about blogging every day is what happens when I run out of ideas. I know that creativity isn’t like a bucket of ideas, when you get to the bottom and there is nothing left thats it. I think it was The Oatmeal who said that creativity is more like a river, new ideas keep coming and expand from other ideas. Thats easy to say but its not so easy to put into practice.
When I decide to blog everyday I usually try and have all my posts scheduled out at least a month in advanced. This way I know ahead of time that I will manage to blog every day. Not doing that is scary, at least its scary to me. For the last week I have woken up every morning knowing that I need to write a blog post that will go out either that day or the day after. There is no time for leaving the post to see if it can be made better, there are no taking days off. I wake up knowing that no matter what happens and no matter what other things I have to do today I must write. And thats scary.
