I thought I’d be honest with you guys and share what I’ve been dealing with the past month, good ole bloggers block. See here’s the thing, it wasn’t your average run out of ideas type of block. This is something I’ve never experienced but I managed to move past it all. I was in a pretty dark place and not in a depressive way but just unmotivated to do anything. Nothing was appealing to me and even reading my blog roll was starting to annoy me, I guess you can say I was all blogged out. I was even sick of shopping at my local mall! I felt like I needed to get out and away for a bit. Still to this day I can’t really pin point as to what the problem was I just know something was off. I wasn’t happy with my ideas or work so I decided it was best to just defer posting those days.
Recently I went on a trip and cleared my mind, It might sound stupid but all the grass and trees around really made me feel at peace with myself. Last week was a busy one for me with my personal life, all good things I promise. I went to the movies, zoo and even helped plan a baby shower for my bestie. Now the creative juices are flowing once again and I’m not being such a mope. I always want to please my readers and If I can’t produce good content I can be a bit angry with myself at times. This blog means everything to me and I just want to put out the best I can but still being true to myself. I don’t live this extra lavish life nor am I trying to bullshit you into thinking I do, I’m just a girl with big dreams and I like pretty things. These are some tips that helped me overcome this bloggers rut for the past couple of weeks . . .
- Drive – Take a road trip somewhere or catch a bus to a different town for the day. I don’t have a ton of windows in the house so starring at the same tree for days and days wasn’t fun.
- Cooking – Try a new recipe! Cooking is soothing to me especially when I get to feed the ones I love most.
- Blogging on the go – I wrote a whole post on this but I love finding new little coffee shops to sit and just take in everything around me. I love watching other people work which sounds weird but I do and I find that it gives me the extra push I need to start typing.
- Flowers – Go to your local farmer’s market and pick up a fresh bunch.
I’m so lucky and blessed for all that has come my way, including all of you! I’ve met some incredible people from all over the world and I would never give that up. So don’t fret, mama is back and feelin good!
