It's hard getting started again

Writer's BlockI’ve just returned from my vacation and I’m about to begin blogging after an absence of almost two weeks.

But what to write? I’m having a hard time getting back into the blogging state of mind.

I frequently tell new bloggers or those considering starting that they should not over-think their first posts. I tell them that the biggest mistake they could make would be to try to write something profound or truly memorable right off the bat. If they do, they could join the ranks of those who have been walking around with the “great American novel” locked in their brains for years. They never get it written down – good or bad.

And now I’m having the problem. I’m searching for something with real meaning. And I don’t have it.

So, a question to any bloggers who read this: Have you had this problem? How have you gotten past the short term block and back into the blogging routine?
