Hello Blogging Blahs
I’ll admit this past while I’ve been feeling a bit blah when it comes to blogging. Maybe I’ve simply been busy with other things and finding ideas to blog about has been taking a back seat. But today, I read a post over at Author Jody Hedlund’s that seemed to resonate with me. 6 Ways to Beat the Blogging Blahs. How the devil did she know what was on my mind? I felt a wee bit happy to know that others go through this as well. Truth is I didn’t even have a name for it before. Blogging Blahs….Who would have thunk it? Thanks, Jody.
Now, I’ve also found myself a tad bit bored with facebook lately as well. Oh dear, am I seeing a pattern here? And Twitter? Well, Twitter just doesn’t seem to speak my language. I’m just not a Twitter kind of gal.
Could be that I’ve just been spending more time reading and writing and the urge for social media just hasn’t been striking me all that often. It’s difficult to do everything, be everywhere. Yet I know some of you seem to be able to juggle it all and then some. By the amount of new posts I see each time I log into google reader I’d say most of you are doing a pretty good job of it. You amaze me. Not only that, you remind me of how far behind I am at visiting your blogs.
I’m not going to say that winter has had any effect on my mood because I really don’t think that’s the case. I’ve got plenty of energy for other things. I’m just feeling a little content to spend time away from the internet. But I’m going to try and get back into the swing of things. Hopefully I’ll be able to take some of Jody’s suggestions and come back even stronger. Hmmm. Time will tell.
If, like me, you’re finding yourself in the midst of the blogging blahs, I suggest you check out Jody’s post. Hopefully, you’ll find some helpful advice.
Have any of you experienced the blogging blahs and if so how did you get yourself back into the groove?
