Bloggers Block

I have to confess, recently I've not been writing as much as usual. It's a combination of things really, I like to call it bloggers block but honestly I'm just exhausted! The days just seem to whizz by and by the time I am home, seen Alfie, cleaned and cooked etc it's 9pm and I just don't seem to have the motivation to sit down and write (or do anything other than slob on the sofa!).

I had this before a while ago and my motivation returned and I was spurred on to write again so I'm fairly confident that my motivation will return it just might take a few days to get back into the swing of things, I have lots of lovely things to write about I just need to find where I hid my mojo. 

Someone said to me a little while ago why don't I give up my blog? Why should I though, it's a hobby and I enjoy it but I think at times  do I put myself under pressure to produce content but if I'm not really feeling it I'd much rather wait until I can start writing happily again, hopefully that makes sense. 

I guess what I'm getting at is that I'm trying not to get too stressed about things and please to bear with me as I will be back to normal soon, if anyone has any advice on bloggers block please do leave me a comment.

  1. What an honest blog piece. I too feel like this sometimes, especially when I have so many other commitments with my children or medical Appointments. I too go in fits and spurts with my blog. I have M.E and sometimes just want to collapse at 10pm after my children are in bed and not start blogging.

  2. Ooh I hear ya! I hardly wrote anything for two months when we moved house because I was ridiculously stressed out and constantly doing something else. It was when I realised how much I missed my little slice of the world wide web that I got my mojo back and started to make time to write at least every other day.

    Good luck!!

  4. Don't worry about having blocks! For me, blocks are becoming more regular as I get older lol! I also love to sew and embroider and go through stages when I really work on projects and produce lots of things but then suddenly I feel like I need a break and I drop everything for a month or so and allow myself to just daydream....There is no harm in it so enjoy your blocks - I completely understand!

  6. Hobbies are there to be enjoyed - we should never feel pressured to do them! Writing is a creative activity and cannot be forced (well it can but then it shows!). Your motivation will come back - it's important to let it come back in its own time as you writing will be all the better for it - and you will enjoy it again.

  8. I think the best thing to do is to write when you feel like it, not to feel like you need to update your blog all the time. Sometimes less is more. Have a little break and it'll come back to you. Good luck.
