If you are a regular reader of this blog you will know that I try hard to promote positivity, so this post is a bit different for me. Lately I have been feeling a bit disillusioned with life and this feeling has spread to my blog as well. I am going to draft this post to get a few things off my chest, whether I post it or not will be another story.
Life has been ridiculously stressful lately and super busy but it’s never effected my blogging before. It’s all things I have no control over, so no idea how to step away and turn my mind off to it. Work and home haven’t been going well and you know when you can normally balance it when ones going bad the others pretty great? Well I’ve had no such luck lately. I feel like I’m about to snap, I want to switch off and relax but not sure how you go about it. I keep getting poorly at the moment as well and I know that’s due to being stressed and run down. Everything just seems a little grey.
In terms of my blogging block, I suppose I don’t have any blogging buddies either so don’t have anyone to talk it through with or anyone who understands this hobby. I want to say I have fallen out of love with it, but that’s not true I love blogging fiercely. ‘Lipsticks and Lashes’ is my little sanctuary and I really enjoy it, cherish it, it’s my baby. However right now and over the past week or so I keep sitting at my laptop and it’s just blank. I have ideas for posts, lists and lists of ideas, but I can’t seem to focus to put anything together, no words are coming out.
I also hate to compare my blog to others, that’s not why I started this. I started it as I love writing. I want to be a writer one day and thought blogging was a great way to practice my writing. I just find it’s become such a competitive community. I have always been flattered that people even check out my blog let alone follow it. But I am sometimes not sure I fit in.
I feel like I have lost my blogging mojo and I don’t know how to fix it.
Apologies for a bit of a ‘bleurgh’ post but I feel better for venting. Have you ever had the blogger blues or blogger block?
