I love discussion posts. When I comment on other bloggers discussions, I tend to say a lot more than on reviews or memes. There's just more to comment about and it's really nice to express my opinion in a paragraph or two (or three) about the topic at hand. I also love the idea of writing my own discussion posts.
I can never figure out what to say. I start thinking of a topic and come up with all sorts of ideas of how to go about it and getting really excited about the post, but when I try to put my thoughts into actual words . . .
My idea fly right out of my head.
(Sidenote: This is my very first gif post! I only have a vague idea of who that guy is . . .)
My discussion posts turn into DNFs and never see the light of day. A lot of times, it's because I don't get my thoughts down on paper (er, maybe not paper, but I think you get my point) fast enough and the topic doesn't hold enough of my interest for me to think of anything to write. Other times, I may have a lot to say but won't know where to start, so I lose interest in the post and I just delete and forget about it.
Almost every single one of my discussion ideas have poofed into thin air, but I hope to eventually include more discussions on this blog. It would be a great contribution and I would like to use this space to share more of my opinions on certain topics, not just books. I just need to figure out a way for me to put my thoughts into words.
Do you struggle with discussion posts like I do or are they really easy for you to write?
Any suggestions on how to beat my discussion post writing problem?
