In the past, I have definitely had something in the past that’s stopped me from blogging. I think when I first started blogging I was finding it difficult to have the confidence to blog, as everyone else seemed so themselves and confident in what they blog about.
What helped me overcome that fear of being some random person blogging was tags/nominations. I felt like by participating in them I was sharing more of myself and also discovering topics that I prefer to talk about/ enjoy to discuss.
I’ve certainly had periods where I’ve lacked inspiration for the content of my blog, and then something has randomly popped into my head and then other ideas flow in from nowhere.
And then there have been times where my emotions have got the better of me and I feel so unenthusiastic about everything or just drained emotionally. And when it comes to that I normally find that as I start to feel more like myself, i have these ideas and think “ohh, I’d really like to blog about that” or “that’d be a nice thing to write about” or something like that.
But then again, sometimes, to just continue blogging, about anything, can get me back into the swing of things.
When I usually talk about ‘taking time away from blogging’ this normally lasts a few days, or up to two weeks. I’m not very good at ‘taking a break,’ if I’m honest with you. Normally, I find the urge to blog hard to resist and often it’s blogging that helps me feel like myself again. But sometimes, all it really takes is sitting down at the computer and writing something. It doesn’t even have to be published, or even in the wordpress folder, it could be on notes, word, pages, anything.
So that’s me, has anything stopped you from blogging (mentally)?
Let me know and thanks for reading,
