So, you may or may not have noticed recently that my blog posts have been a bit sparse. I’m totally aware of this myself. In the past I have told myself I NEED to post at least 2 blog posts a week. Otherwise, people will get disinterested and won’t bother reading my blog any more. After only starting my blog in October 2016, I’m trying so hard to keep the momentum up and make this blog a success. But sometimes this can be hard. After all, I have a very busy, full on full-time job that isn’t just 9-5, 5 days a week, it’s so much more than that. Especially of late, when I’ve had a lot going on and plenty of commitments at work. Not only that, I’ve had a lot of different things happen in my personal life recently that I’ve had to deal with and sometimes that means you just don’t want to or simply can’t write.
I think this post is just a jumbled up way of me trying to tell myself that it’s ok not to be blogging all the time, and that people won’t mind if I’m not posting as regularly as I sometimes do. Quite often, I’m my own worst enemy, and am much harder on myself than anyone else is on me. After all, some of you might not have even noticed I’ve been MIA!
Plus, this is a post for anyone else out there who is feeling a similar way to me. That life is busy and full on, and sometimes things happen that you have no control over. Whilst blogging may be a full-time job and therefore an income for some people so posts need to be written, for many of us it is a hobby and hobbies shouldn’t be worried about. They should be picked up when the time is right, and are there to be enjoyed. I’ve truly found something I love in blogging, but also realise that I need to take care of myself first and then blog when I’m able to. Whilst I would like to be the most consistent and organised blogger going, I’ve gotta understand that sometimes real life just gets in the way of this and that isn’t my fault. So make sure you aren’t too hard on yourself either.
So are you finding it hard to blog consistently at the moment? Do you work full-time too and blog when you are able to? Or perhaps you took a break from blogging, then came back fully charged? I would love to know in the comments!
Until next time…
