Hi Again.

To be honest, I have no idea what I am doing. I feel like I did when I first started my blog. Maybe you noticed, or perhaps you didn’t, but I kind of went off the grid. My last post was three weeks ago.


After that, I just felt blah. I don’t know how else to put it. I wasn’t sick. I wasn’t super busy. But I could not find it in me to blog. So, I decided I would stop for a week, and then a week turned into two, and then before I realized it was November. (Which is crazy.) I also decided that I wouldn’t even open the WordPress app.


Now I’m sitting here on Halloween, a little hungover, drinking an Iced Chai Latte and suddenly feeling inspired to write, wanting to share with you all what I have learned over these past few weeks.


I have learned that I can’t force myself to do things that I don’t want to do. There are times that I have written a blog post to make sure I stay consistent, even though I’m not satisfied with the content. Now, I realize that forcing myself to write is only going to make me hate blogging. Instead, I must figure out a schedule that works best for me.


I have learned that I need to do more than look at my phone all the time. Specific, but I need to cut back on social media. I have lost a lot of hobbies, including blogging, from the amount of time I spend on my phone. And with these cold months coming ahead, I would like to find other ways to keep me entertained besides pointless scrolling.


I have learned that I am not 100% happy with my life, but the only one that can change that is me. I like to play the pity card a lot. Even though my life isn’t that pitiful. Sometimes, I think it’s okay to get down in the dumps. But when you’re so far down that you can’t find a way out is when it becomes a problem, and I am working on putting effort into the changes I wish to see.


I gained some followers while I was away, and I am really close to 200. Which I honestly cannot believe. But I hope this post doesn’t depress or deter you away from staying. I am not gloomy all the time.


I’m hoping this blog post makes sense, lol. I can’t make any promises for how consistent I’ll be for the rest of the year. Because every time I say I am going to do something, I do the opposite.


I want everyone to know that I am trying my best, and I am excited to catch up and read everyone’s content from the past couple of weeks. So, if it looks like I am spamming you, I’m sorry. (But not really)

This post is a mess.

Thanks for reading!

Megan

  1. Hey! I completely get where you’re coming from with this post, especially the line “every time I say I am going to do something, I do the opposite.” That is me. The amount of times I’ve told myself I’m going to blog more often, only to do the exact opposite and let weeks pass without posting, is too many to count. Blogging is a lot more fun when we’re posting because we want to and not because we feel like we have to.

  2. Love this post so much actually! I love honest posts that are heartfelt and vulnerable. I totally get that it’s almost impossible to do things (especially creative things) if you don’t want to. And that’s ok. These “rules” we have to follow to be loved in the blogging world are such a pain in the ass. And I honor my right to rebel against them! So yea, do what u need to do and it sounds like you’re doing just fine, darling! I look forward to more posts like this, I really do 💖

  3. I love your candor about how tough blogging really is… Sometimes the word flows but most times, it takes a ton of thought, effort and trial & error. I can’t tell you how many stop and starts I had before I found my groove… And even after I found my groove, how many instances of writer’s block I had to battle!

    You’re also right about the phone! My phone is getting in the way of my reading and catching up on blogs from the blogosphere!! We must stop the madness!

    • Blogging is 10 times harder than I thought it was going to be, and the respect I have for full time bloggers and content creators is so high than what it was before.

      I agree! My phone is my best friend and also my enemy and figuring out the right balance is so hard!

  4. Hey Megan!
    Taking time off is definitely needed every now and then. Sometimes we can’t explain why we need time off but we just need it.

    Only posting what you really want to and interested in goes a long way. If I’m not really feeling a post, I just let it go.

    You’re doing your best. That’s all that matters. ☺️
    Good luck with everything! 🥰

  5. You dictate your post schedule, so don’t worry if you haven’t posted in 3 weeks!
    I hadn’t posted since last Christmas before today😂I deleted social media and everything and loved it! But decided to come back and see how it goes. We always have to remember that you have to love doing it, and if not then its time for a break👌🏻
