    After thousands of articles, reviews, blog post and so on I seem to have writers burn out. I have articles on hubpages, squidoo, ezine places, Associated Content plus my own dozen sites.

    I already pay someone to write blog post for me, and now I seem even more loath to write any articles at all. I need to turn my time toward getting links, SEO'ing my sites, making them bigger and so on.

    But I can't bear to let anyone do all my writing; even with the ones someone does for me I tweak them. However I can honestly say that the thought of writing anything at all just depresses me.

    I guess I need to spend a few days at Universal Studios taking pictures for my tourist site and get outta the house and away from the computer!! hmm

      Happens to lots of people but Universal Studios sounds like a magic solution - can I get into your shoes for a while?

    I can think of worse things to do then go to Universal Studios, sounds like fun! I know how you feel, sometimes I just can't write a thing and a good long walk does me good. Take a well deserved break and come back refreshed. smile

    Might I suggest a Boggy Creek boat ride to go with that Universal outting?  Quite restful and will make a nice addition to your work.  I loved it but then I was looking for nature pics at the time.

    I'm just coming back from a bit of burn-out., too.  I was off and on, mostly off writing my own work, for almost two months.  Now I'm getting back in, I had quite a lot of other stuff going on.

    I still could've found the time, just got lazy, got burn out, whatever.

    A holiday sounds like a great thing.  I'll have to look at my finances again, see what destination I can squeeze out once I've got my responsibilities covered here.

    Universal Studios?  Really?  Lucky you.
