Ever since I started this blog back in 2016, I have worked as hard as I can to make it what it is today. In some ways, it been my little internet baby. I made it from nothing and have blogged through and about some of the most craziest times of my life.
I do now feel like that I have let my blog down and I’m sorry..
We are only 4 months in to 2019 and I’ve already been hit with every emotion possible. I guess that’s why I feel like I have let my hard work slip. Everything has come before the blog and it has been in the back of my mind for 80% of the time. Every so often my little blogging head will be on and I’ll write a post but the majority of the blogs I have written are ADs and sponsored content. Purely because there is more pressure to write them and I don’t want to lose all my hard work by not working to some extent.
2018 for me was my best year for my blog yet. I was writing 3 posts a week and progressing so much then 2019 came and boom. Didn’t feel like doing it anymore. January passed and February was a bit better. Still not my blogging self but better. Then came the pregnancy symptoms.
Ahh. I honestly feel like I have had a million hurdles in front of me. So finding out I was pregnant again was an emotional rollercoaster and I felt like rubbish. The combination of those feelings meant that I didn’t feel like blogging or going on social media much if at all.
My daily life was looking after 2 children, a house, myself, growing a baby, trying to stay awake for more than 8 hours a day and trying to not be sick after everything I ate so blogging was on the back burner. No matter how much I tried I just couldn’t do my usual thing of blogging once the kids had gone to bed. My brain just wouldn’t work.
I just feel sorry for myself and this blog at the moment. I have neglected all the hard work that I put in for so long. I am trying my hardest to keep up and hopefully once I have my pregnancy ‘glow’ I can get back to my normal blogging self!
One thought on “Dear Blog, I’m Sorry…”
A blog can drain your schedule and time and so fasts and breaks are crucial – and sorry if you are having a hard time –
But know that there will be times to pour into other projects later – and maybe with more appreciation of you have had to pause –
I have adult kids now so I speak from experience –
Don’t feel heaviness – instead – rest with them – grow with them
And find hobbies for you that will recharge and not drain.
I know a blog momentum can refresh -but it can also drain big time –
