This week's blogging prompt for chronic illness bloggers

 Are you looking for inspiration to write a blog post? Hopefully you will find an idea here or in our previous blog prompts

Each week I'm sharing a quote to inspire your ideas and hopefully get you blogging. You can use the image and the quote in your post, if you wish, or just use it to get your creative juices flowing. 

I think this is one that many people with chronic illnesses can relate to... 

This week's blogging prompt for chronic illness bloggers

“The little things? The little moments? They aren't little.”

Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, is internationally known for his work as a scientist, writer, and mindfulness meditation teacher. He has written many books on mindfulness that may also inspire you. Investigate his books here.

What are blogging prompts?

A blogging prompt can be anything that kick starts the blogging process. They provide a starting point that may develop your thoughts and turn into a full-blown post. They are also useful when you have what is termed 'writer's block' and you may not have been blogging for a while. With the quotes I am recently sharing I am hoping to spark your creativity. I purposely don't share my take on the quote to help you have your own unique views and thoughts.

If this, or any of the blogging prompts, helps you create a post please share the link to it here in the comment section.

If you are looking for a different blogging prompt you may like "Write a letter to your future self."

Happy blogging from Lee Good.

This week's blogging prompt for chronic illness bloggers

Weekly Blogging prompts for chronic illness bloggers

Sitting staring at the computer with no inspiration is not the place to be, especially when you are a fibro blogger or a chronic illness blogger. 

I often get inspiration in the strangest places like driving in my car or flying in a plane. This may not happen every time I drive and I don't fly that often. As a general rule though I can almost always get inspiration from a great quote. 

So I will be sharing a quote each week to help inspire you to write a post. You can use the image and the quote in your post or not. It's up to you. You might like to make your own image. 

I'd love to hear back from you if you are inspired by any of the blogging prompts on Fibro Blogger Directory. So, please leave a comment here with a link to the post. Maybe your post will be share on our Tumblr page, our Twitter feed or my facebook profile

Thank you, in anticipation,

Lee Good. 

quote about how far you've come.

"Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember everything you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all the fears you have overcome."

N.R. Walker is an Australian author, who loves her genre of gay romance. She loves writing and spends far too much time doing it, but wouldn't have it any other way. ~ goodreads.

Chronic Illness inspiration

Kelly Hemingway quote

This week's quote: Sometimes you will be in control of your illness and other times you'll sink into despair, and that's OK! Freak out, forgive yourself, and try again tomorrow. ~  Kelly Hemingway.

When Kelly was 5 she wanted to be a nurse and she became one with a Master's Degree in Nursing and a specialisation in education. 
She worked as a nurse for 22 years until she was hit with chronic illness in 2010. 
She is now disabled due to these illnesses, which include Fibromyalgia, but that has not stopped her continuing to help others. She has written a book about Fibromyalgia to help others from the view of both a nurse and a patient:

Today's quote is: "I have nothing in common with people who wash, dry, fold and put their clothes away all in one day." 


Blogging Inspiration

ideas to inspire a blog post

Nothing in your brain.  Or a hundred thoughts.  No inspiration.  No plan... except to create a blog post for your readers.

Blogging isn't about sitting on a wind swept beach, or in front of a computer, with ideas magically jumping into our brains. It takes some thought.

Being a chronic illness blogger can bring the extra challenge of having cognitive issues, colloquially known as brain fog, that can interfere with clarity of thought, an essential component for any writer.

Often I find I get writer's block, which is frustrating. I find ideas often come to me when I can relate to the idea in a quote and how it affects me in my life.

I am hoping to bring you blogging inspiration on a weekly basis, especially if you are a chronic illness blogger.

This week's quote: "I'm acting like I'm OK. Please don't interrupt my performance."


Blogging Prompt: write a letter to your future self.

Blogging Prompts for people in chronic pain

WHAT IS A BLOGGING PROMPT? It is a suggestion for you to blog about, if you are looking for ideas. It may give you an idea to get you started on blog post. It may spark ideas to get you past a writer's block.  

I think it would be cool to write a letter to your future self and actually send it.

I would write about what is important to me right now, my fibromyalgia symptoms and what things I am currently trying to help reduce them, my interests and my goals.
I would love to read this in the future... in maybe 10 years or maybe 5.

What would you write about to inform your future self?

There is a really cool app that lets you do this here and it's called and they actually email you your letter on the date and year you specify. I am going to write a letter to my future self there using the app but I also think it is a great idea for a blog post.

If you agree with me and write a blog post about it please let me know so I can come and read it. Thanks from Lee.


Blogging prompt: What is fibro fog

Blogging prompt: What is fibro fog

Fibro fog is the feeling of being in a haze. When I have it I say my head feels like it is full of cotton wool and on those days I just can't think straight. I have difficulty concentrating, finding the right words and remembering things. If I am at work then I have to concentrate really hard to have a conversation and appear normal.

According to a 2015 review in Rheumatology International, some patients report that the loss of mental clarity can be even more devastating than the pain and fatigue associated with fibromyalgia. Fibro fog can manifest itself in different ways in different people but some of the most common symptoms include:

  • short term memory loss
  • misplacing objects
  • becoming easily distracted
  • forgetting plans
  • difficulty carrying on conversations
  • inability to remember new information" ARTHRITIS FOUNDATION
Describing how Fibro Fog affects you or a humorous story about it might make a good post. Here are some memes that make light of this cognitive problem and there are over 50 more here : Fibro Funny Quotes   Hopefully they may inspire your post...
Happy blogging.


Blogging prompt: Pain perceptions

Fibromyalgia blogging prompt
"We can’t escape pain; we can’t escape the essential nature of our lives. But we do have a choice. We can give in and relent, or we can fight, persevere, and create a life worth living, a noble life. Pain is a fact; our evaluation of it is a choice.” ~ Jacob Held

Hopefully this quote may inspire your blogging whatever aspect of it resonates with you - choosing, giving in, the relentless dance with pain, the choices we all have, how you create a life for yourself with chronic illness and what it looks like now. These are all universal topics that will be of interest to a wider population and could open your blog up to a larger audience.

If you do write about this topic or use the image quote (please feel free to use it) let me know here in comments so we can all visit and read what you have written.
Best blogging wishes to you from Lee.


Blogging prompt: being happy in challenging times

Blogging prompt for fibromyalgia
Living with chronic illness does not mean being unhappy. It means we have the extra daily challenge of looking beyond the imperfections of our body, in order to be happy. I have included the following quote and flowers as reminders of this. The quote says it well and the flowers are a reminder of the small but amazing things we can find around us to make us happy. I love flowers, especially in a garden.

Blogging prompt for fibro & chronic illness bloggers

Blogging prompt for fibro bloggers

This blogging idea is about PAIN. Everyone gets it, even babies, but how do you explain it to others especially your family and do you think they understand or even believe you?

ideas to blog about

Do you find this image true? Have you ever felt this from a loved one? Did you verify the feeling with them? Many of us with fibromyalgia get looks of doubt or doubting comments from family and friends about our levels of pain. Some doctors even still question whether fibro pain is real! I think this is because they don't yet fully understand what causes fibro pain and what makes it continue and not go away. After all most people will just take a painkiller and their pain will go away and not come back so this is their expectation with pain.
How do you convey your pain to others? Do you even think it is important to tell those around you or do you keep it to yourself?

I hope you get some ideas here for creating a post around pain.
