It’s been awhile and I’m feeling the need for a chatty post or in some ways, a vent. My levels of positivity have never been so up and down and that’s probably down to work stress, wedding stress, finances.. all that “grownup stuff” but I’m concerned it’s having an effect on my blogging abilities.
Motivation is difficult at the best of times but I have (for the most part) been pushing through. I’d be lying though if I said I wasn’t feeling disheartened with elements of my “blog baby”.
Let nobody tell you that blogging is easy. Enjoyable, yes but easy is an impossible word in the world of blogging. It’s difficult sharing your content with the world especially when you don’t always see the results you were hoping for. It’s hugely important to me that I only put out content that I am proud of and best represents me, I think that in itself can cause issues when trying to write for your readers.
Seeing so many inspirational and successful bloggers is daunting and there’s an element of feeling like you have to compete to be seen or that it’s impossible to be as successful. Do you agree?
I’m going to spend the Easter break desperately trying to get out of this negative funk and return to the most enjoyable elements of blogging. I love how Thimbles and Spoons has grown so far, I just hope it continues and my passion continues along side it. Thoughts?
