I’ve been feeling like I’m losing some of my blogging mojo. I’ve been getting significantly less views- it feels like I’ve taken two steps backward. And I can’t figure it out. I just want make the world laugh and use jazz hands more often. Those are my two missions in life- so why is this so difficult?
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve gone through periods of non-inspiration on this blog before, but this time it feels different. It’s not so much that I’m uninspired it’s that I’m not sure that what inspires me and makes me laugh until I cry is really translating all that well to others. And I want to make the people laugh! (And right now all I can think of is this SNL Monologue– also I may love this man….)
I’m starting to wonder if I’m becoming one of those really desperate comedians who stoop to further and further indignities for a laugh and pretty soon you might be seeing fart jokes on this blog (actually sometimes fart jokes are funny). And panic really starts to set in and I’m thinking- I might have to become a mime. So I go out and buy like, a lot of white face paint and start trying to prepare myself emotionally for the toll this is going to take because I’m pretty sure I will be a terrible mime (I’ve never gone even an hour without talking) but what else is out there for a down-and-out comedy blog writer? Have I lost my comedy blog mojo forever? And then I start crying and singing “Oh where, oh where has my mojo gone? Oh where, oh where can he be? With his laughs real long and his wit real sharp, oh where, oh where can he be? ” And then I offend myself because why does my blog mojo have to be a “he” my mojo is so clearly a “she” and how very sexist of me to sing otherwise.
So, as you can tell, there is a lot going on in my head today. And most of it is nonsensical. Which, isn’t unusual. Nevertheless, I grab a mirror, look myself in the eye, and say “Girl on the Contrary, you are clever, witty, hilarious, and gosh darn it, people like you.” (There are a lot of SNL references today…) And I just need to get my shiz together. And then I slap myself in the face for dramatic effect.
And then all of a sudden my mojo is back and I have like a ton of ideas for blogs and I take a deep breath and start typing. And also, I got my picture for this blog off an erectile dysfunction website which is hysterical so I think I’m going to be just fine.
