Friday Coffee & Bookish Speaks – Speak Boldly

I’m just drinking a brewed coffee today. It would be good for you to know that I am a huge fan of small roasted coffee. My favorite right now is Papua New Guinea from my favorite roaster.

Coming up with a topic each week to discuss can be tough. I know that some bloggers don’t even attempt it. It’s a daunting task! Coming up with a discussion every week can get hard. Sometimes you have to beg, borrow and steal inspiration.  I know that when I draw a blank I reference this list.  Yet, I find that perhaps inspiration isn’t always my problem as it is confidence to say what I have to say.

Why would anyone care what I have to say? Every day I struggle with why would someone want to read what I have to say over somebody else. This is quite problematic when one is a writer. I live with constant writers block because I don’t have the guts to get out what I have to say.

When I see other people have trouble with discussions I suspect that I am not alone. I don’t even have good advice on how to get over this! If you do… please share. All I can say on the matter at this point is take it one day at a time. Next week I’ll talk about anxiety. I am so sad to see that a lot of bloggers touch on this issue from a personal perspective. My anxiety waxes and wanes every day. My ability to function goes along with that.

What I have decided to do is something is better than nothing. I use these discussion posts to learn to speak boldly. It’s a small attempt every week, but it keeps me sharing. That’s all I can say to you… is speak boldly even if it is something small.

What do you think about discussions on blogs? I think they add a personal touch….

    I think it’s great you’re going to be writing more discussion posts! I definitely find it hard to come up with discussions on my blog, so I don’t do them often. I do love reading them though. People have such unique perspectives to offer on things, and I love that. Good luck!

      Thank you so much. I do enjoy doing them though it is hard to brainstorm a new topic every week!
