Blogging Problems, Recycling Old Posts

So I have come across an unusual problem, (No, not the third nipple, hey if it's good enough for Harry Styles, it's good enough for me) well, I say unusual, but I'm sure some of you are in the same boat. (If you are, it's your turn to paddle, lazy git) 

For the last FOUR YEARS, I have blogged pretty much each day during the week and once on Saturday, (Shutterday, you should look at it, no other bugger seems to) and I don't actually schedule posts, I blog on a daily basis, or whenever the mood takes me. (Except for yesterday, when the mood drove me into a carb coma and I frankly, couldn't be arsed) but what I have found lately is I have a GREAT idea for a post, I begin to write it, and suddenly I start to think..... 

Haven't I written about this before?

Grrrrrr, and it is happening more and more lately. 

Dead animals at the side of the road? Wrote about it. 

Wrote about them. 

Ryan Giggs bonking his brothers wife?
Wrote it.

And the list goes on, and on and on. 

It's like I've used ALLLLL THE WORDS,

and written ALL the blog posts and now, a bit like our dear beloved Kate, I want to recycle them and use them again! (Except I won't have The Daily Mail praising me-Oh dear God, what a thought) 

Am I alone in this? 

If you blog, do you find yourself starting posts that you've written before? Without realising it? 

If you don't blog and you are reading this thinking, "Shut up and just write, you whinging cow" I can only apologise and will promise to do better tomorrow. (I have a great idea about male celebs called, Nom or Vom.... Oh) 

What do you think, can you get to a point in blogging where you have said ALL the things? 

Let me know.

  1. I don't have that issue (but then, I hardly post with any routine! Just when I really want to write) BUT I do have 'duplicate lipstick' issues.

    Really, the amount of times I'm at a counter, drawn to a perfect hue.
    Thinking 'oh yeah, that is so me!'.
    Then getting home to discover I have three of that shade already.thats why it looks like 'me'.

    FFS. That's when you know you've overdone something. 😜

  2. Yup. This is a problem I know well. I currently have 98 unfinished drafts in WP, and I reckon a third of them are "oh sh*t, I've written this before' posts.

  3. Been there before. I've written and posted something then realised that I've written it before. Oh well. There's always stuff to talk about though. :-)

  4. I am looking forward to this day!! I look forward to the day that my twisted sleepless mind cannot think of anything else to bug me with :) What I tend to do is use the same words over and over like a bloody parrot :(

  5. Yep, I've reached this point myself. I have a shitload of posts in draft because I get halfway through then get a panic on thinking DEJA VU! Aaaarrrghhh.


Due to increased spam comments I am now having to moderate the comments I receive. I will do my best to get them approved quickly so please, carry on commenting as every time you comment a kitten smiles.
