For a writer, there is no worse feeling than sitting down to an empty page and having nothing come out.
I have just felt so uninspired lately. Things in my life have been crazy and I’ve had a lot going on. But in the past, even when things have been crazy and I’ve had a lot going on, I’ve still been able to sit down and focus and get all my ideas and emotions out. For some reason, this time I feel different.
Whenever I DON’T post, I feel like I am letting everyone down. Do any of you ever feel that way? Especially you, my fellow bloggers. I read your words every day and am constantly awed and amazed by your creativity - your stylish outfits, your insane DIY projects, your ability to spot trends and share ideas and come up with exciting projects. I look at my own blog and feel like my creativity and good, interesting ideas have been few and far between lately. Does that ever happen to you?
You know, I’ve been resisting Pinterest. I have an account, but I don’t use it. I’ve been making excuses and jokes - “I’m too busy with all my OTHER social media accounts!” “I am scared I’ll become addicted to it and have to quit my job because I’ll want to spend all my time on it!” - but maybe seeing all the creative ideas and projects out there might inspire me to come up with some of my own?
I love blogging. I love having a space that’s all mine, a space where I’ll be able to look back in ten years and laugh at the things I was doing or saying or wearing. I’ve met wonderful people and learned interesting things and been super inspired by so many other blogs out there. But right now, none of that matters. It’s like I’m stuck.
Yall. I’d sincerely love your advice. What do you do when you feel like this? How can I get my blog-groove back?
