Blogging and me...The Breakup?

View from this mornings run - beautiful morning here in Weymouth!

Blogging and Me... The Breakup?
I was about to sit down and start this post with what’s become a bit of a familiar starting point around here....sorry I’ve not blogged in like forever... waaaa what a shit way to start a post and it got me thinking, whys it become such a regular point round here?
Have I fallen out of love with blogging? Can I still be classed as a blogger when my posts have gone from 3 times a week to once a month or sometimes even longer? Even worse, have me and blogging split up? Is this a break up?
Lets start from the beginning, I started blogging 3 and a half years ago and up until a year ago I was hooked, if I wasn’t writing a blog post I was either taking photographs for said post, joining in all the twitter blog chats or sending and receiving blog emails. It was BLOG LOVE central over here! When I started blogging I wasn’t in a great place, I was bored, lonely and if I’m honest, completely lost. It sounds cringey and dramatic but blogging kind of saved me. Honest to god, it really rescued me rom a dark place. Blogging gave me a massive confidence boost, it gave me that creative outlet I was desperately in need of and gave me a sense of purpose.
Over the past year I have been spending more and more time focusing on my fitness and this has left less time for my magical little space on the internet. My life has been work, gym, sleep, repeat with a good spoonful of socialising thrown in for fun. Life has been pretty grand.
I know this post is starting to ramble but I think its a personal post for me to clarify my thoughts and feelings and I guess I’m trying to figure out if bloggings done its job in my life and we are over? I truly believe we are blessed to have things come into our lives a the right moment and that sometimes its for a certain purpose and when the jobs done off it pops again. Has blogging given me the boost I needed and now I no longer need it?
I don’t think I’ve fallen out of love with blogging as I still read blogs every day and I have a long list of post ideas that I’m constantly adding too. Its just time and that horrendous guilt feeling of not spending enough time as I would like writing. I do finally have a new laptop so I can spend a bit more time online now which is a bit of a blessing.
I think perhaps me and blogging have been on a break and I’m going to start dipping my toes in, having a few dates with it and see how I get on! I don’t want to give up on blogging  just yet, I just need to take the pressure off and remember what u love about it!
I would love to hear If you've had a bit of a waiver with blogging?


  1. Hello! Nice to hear from you! I've not had a long blog break for a good few years now but when I was in my early years of teaching, I had a while where I didn't blog much because I was just too busy. Now, it is a very-much needed creative outlet or a place where I can just write. I've done it for 11years this week so I'm not going to stop!
    I'd say, enjoy it when you want to. Could you just do a post once a week?
    It is great your life is good! V glad to hear it!

  2. Hi, Gemma!

    You're not the only one who's going through that--I'm certainly having a bit of crisis. Probably because I've had a lot on my plate, plus the fact that I can be the most disorganised person ever. I'm trying to remedy it by getting a planner, with which I schedule entries! Since my blog is pretty much a hodge-podge of different topics, my problem was finding something to write about.

    What worked for me was that I took each day at a time. If I didn't get to write, tomorrow is always another day! :) Please don't give up blogging! I love your entries, and I'm pretty sure the blogosphere won't be the same without you in it!

  3. It's nice to see someone is feeling exactly how I am. When I first started out blogging wasn't just an hobby, but somewhere I could escape too. I was a Mum of 2, quite lonely at times and just needed something to dive into. For the last year I've felt my social life increase and changes be made in my life and due to that I blog less than I use too. I still blog and I love it, but the less posts I write the more of a nose dive I've seen in views and comments, and although this use to bug me and get to me, I don't mind at all anymore.
