Towards the end of last year, I shared that I was feeling generally fed up and uninspired about blogging. Lots of lovely people shared their sympathy and suggested a break – which I duly took over the festive season.
I’ve been thinking (and avoiding thinking) about this blog and its future for several months now. I absolutely do not want to stop, I love the community and the wonderful people I know from the blogging work. However, I’ve been struggling to find inspiration for what to write and I started my blog primarily as an outlet for my random thoughts. It’s meant to be a stream of consciousness therapeutic tool for me more than anything else. Feeling a duty to be productive (even if that’s mainly a duty to myself) is definitely not how I want it to be.
So, my first strategy for getting back to my roots with blogging is to change my schedule. So often I find myself on a Thursday or Monday with no post for the next day and rushing to throw something together. Instead of the Tuesday and Friday posts I’ve been doing for the last year or so, I’m going to switch to Saturday and Monday. That fits better with my day off on a Friday, when there is actually a chance that I’ll have time to write down what’s on my mind.
This is my first Wednesday post then. I hope you’ll stick with me and keep reading.
