Facebook games are making me stupid

I’ve been kinda dreading blogging recently.

Maybe I’m a little burnt out, or maybe I’ve been spending too much time playing stupid Facebook games.

I just feel a kind of stuckness in my mind. Kind of like when Professor Xavier (from X-Men) has his telepathic abilities blocked by his enemies.

Except that my enemy is probably just my own mind.

Or maybe it’s the Facebook games. I think they’re making me stupid.

But, at the same time, I’ve been playing CSI: Deadly Intent. I can’t be that stupid if I managed to complete the game. I’ve completed all five cases in the game and I feel slightly smarter for it.

Unfortunately, smarts have nothing to do with blogging. People want to read interesting, engaging content and not necessarily smart ones.

So, how do I make my mind think interesting, engaging thoughts again?


The problem is, sometimes, I think people don’t really want to read. They just want to see photos, as evidenced by the fact that readers often leave comments asking questions which answers can be easily found in the text.

My life as a blogger would be so much easier if I could just turn my blog into a photo gallery and just post photos without having to work on writing interesting content.


Maybe I shall try that.

What do you think?

    I ALWAYS read what you write,

    By the way, have you ever thought about turning your blog in to a photo gallery? That would be much easier…

    I also noticed your entry gets pretty dry lately. Though never proven scientifically, I believe there is such a thing call writer’s block. Just like footballers also top form and low form, so on some days the energy just won’t flow.

    The best way to deal with it is to take a break or do something different from your usual lifestyle. The key is to find new inspiration.

    Hope it helps.

    P/S: Alternatively if you run out of ideas of what to write, just write your daily life events like what time you woke, what you did, what you ate, take some photos would be good too. That can be bloody interesting for readers.

    BTW you look much better without make up and all. Don’t need to make up too much, you have the natural beauty to flaunt.

    What do we think? Think wat? Ok, i did read your post this time round though

    I admit of late I am one of those who quickly scan through your post, checking out the photos. Sorry.

    Well I believe you are entering the phase I am in, tons of things to do but dun have any drive to do it. End up playing stupid games, watching movies you seen before. Is there any way out? Tell me when you find it. :)

    I guess I’m in the minority that pays more attention to what you write than the pictures posted.
    How about doing something like a photo-essay, such as posting a photo of something you find interesting and writing off-hand about it?
    That’ll be random enough to be interesting and refreshing.

    I believe its a combination of everything, just like life. Think of it this way, in life, sometimes u have your funny joking moments, sometimes u have your serious sombre moments. U cant be either funny or serious all the time!

    So you should mix up your blog with a variety ie both photos and writings.

    More importantly, you should find blogging fun and not a chore. Hope to see you back in full force soon!

    Facebook games are only meant to kill time, playing too much of it will undermine ur ability to write quality posts be it just a simple random musing, humor, adventures with stick figures drawing or regular GGF game reviews.

    Finding new things to research about or pick up some new skills/interests could be some ways you can do to motivate urself to blog more often to satisfy ur ever increasing blog readers. Surely if u put extra effort in blogging, some of ur blog readers will appreciate it. Moreover, disappointing some readers by blogging short simple post most of the time is not what u want right? =P

    Yes, you’re right, after playing a round of games my mind gets kind of stuck in a rut and if it’s daytime and a nice day I like to go for a long walk, it really clears my head, at nite I like to listen to music and read.
