The Pressure to Blog

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

Realistically, there isn't any but can I drill that into my head? (the answer is no.)

My blog has existed since April 2014. That's 3 + 1/2 years of me existing in blog form, one way or another. THREE AND A HALF YEARS!

Never have I stuck to a solid schedule. Never have I rocketed and received pressure from readers. That's always worked though - I've had amazing blogging experiences over the years. Yet still I feel a sense of pressure when it comes to blogging. In every way possible I love blogging. I love creating ideas, writing, the reader interactions, dealing with pr companies and making friends. I still feel that sense of anxiety when it comes to writing, though. There is nothing I would love more than to create content daily - even multiple times a week would make me happy. I have all the time in the world, really. I work from home - I am not overrun with appointments to say the least. I have no children, my pets are easily pleased and my partner is beyond supportive of everything I do. It's me, and I know it is.

I want my mojo back and heck am I determined to find it. My thoughts currently are...
  • Notebooks - I want new notebooks to plan, schedule and motivate. 
  • Lists - My favourite motivation is lists. (In my new notebook which I haven't yet purchased, please)
  • Inspiration - Blogs, Magazines, YouTube. I need to re-inspire myself and I think this will be the perfect way.
Honestly, I don't think I ever will be a blogger to aspire to. My schedule will never be perfect and my ideas may not be showstopping but I love it and I have to try. I think my biggest hang up is content ideas so step 1 is to plan like crazy and get the ball rolling - starting today!

I hope you don't mind my little ramble but I think it's just what I needed to kick myself up the bum. Who knows - I might actually stick to it this time!

UPDATE: Notebook and Planner purchased. Let's do this!
