SIGH.....


That is my big guilt sigh, as I try to figure out how to explain my lack of enthusiasm for doing posts on my blog and getting back into reading your amazing blogs again. After my months of hell during these last few shows at my theater, I went on a short break to visit with my daughter and the G-babies and go to my family reunion. It was nice to get away, but I came back to several band trips and then had to play catch up on work that I needed to still get done for the theater. (I had a director quit on me----and have had several weeks of panic!)

But now, I have some time, and I can't seem to get the posts done! I keep putting it off. I have a camera full of pictures. I have tons to say. I want to read blogs. I want to write a post.


But I just can't seem to do it.

Its a mystery, that is for sure. Maybe its like when you get so far behind on something and feel that you can't ever catch up, so you just stay away from it.

I don't know.

I have been doing this blog for almost five years, and I am wondering if I even want to do it anymore sometimes. That is the negative side of me. I really want to keep it going to have a record of my life----as I don't believe that I will ever write my auto-biography one day for my children, etc. That is the hopeful side of me. I really do enjoy the writing---it helps relieve my stress, in a way. That is the positive side of me.

So.....what do I do?

How do I get past this slump?

Someone out there give me some sound and fantastic advice.


I am not worthy.....I am not worthy.....

Don't try to make up for all the lost posts you didn't do.
Start fresh today and call it could.

You have lots to offer the rest of us who read you and trust me, you are missed when I don't see you in my reader.

hang in there girl. One small post at a time : )

Yay! A post from you. I was so bummed to miss you this go around.

I'm glad you have a breather, relax and enjoy it. Just start with tomorrow and go from there. I love reading your posts.

I agree with the two ladies above. Just start fresh and as you get time or the desire you can add in posts from the past here and there.

I'm glad you're back, even if it's just for a short post.

I think you just have to do what feels right for you. If you aren't enjoying being online anymore, then walk away. We'll miss you but will understand.

You just described the last four months for me. I have the same feelings about blogging all the time. I go through spurts where I just can't bring myself to do it and then I'll get my 2nd wind and I"ll post a whole bunch. Then back to not posting again. I think it's natural to get blog burn out.

Take a guilt-free break, be it a week or a month. And if a month stretches into 2 or 3 or 8,....so be it. Do it when you want to, not out of blogligation.

the advice that comes to mind is Nike: Just Do It

I'm ready to quit my blog just about every other day. But once I sit down and do it, I'm reinspired to stick with it...

Just do what you want. Blogging isn't supposed to be stressful. If it's too much, update it less often. That's what I did. You just have to do what's right for you. Whatever that may be.

Anna See said...

Don't freak out about taking a break. Blogging shouldn't be a guilt-inducing chore. We'll be here when you post next. :)

That wilted flower: that what I feel like too! I think it's OK to let ourselves feel that way for a while. We have to constantly think and re-shift things. The important things will rise to the top. Hugs to you.

Ultimately we all blog for ourselves. When you find the time and have the desire write a post, I love it when you do! When you're over stressed and have nothing to say then don't, but know I will miss you!

Heather said...
