Blogging Lately …..A little update

So I thought I’d do a little update on my blog. I’ve really lost my mojo of late and since Christmas I’ve really struggled with the direction I want to take my blog.

I wrote a little post back in January about how I planned to change my blog, but to be honest nothing much has changed. In fact I’ve not posted much at all.

I’ve really got myself in a bit of vicious circle of where I want to take my blog, I’ve had so many different ideas whizzing round my brain but I am struggling to get them down on paper. I have been trying to back myself into a corner about what my niche should be. I started comparing myself and my blog to other more successful bloggers and influencers and really beating myself up about whether I am good enough. I have been very close to deleting the whole thing.

I’ve kind of just been letting things tick over and thinking about if I wanted to continue with my blog.

On speaking to my husband about it he had noticed I wasn’t spending as much time on my blog as normal. He said he thought I was silly if I gave up all my hard work I’d put in and I should continue as he knew how much I loved writing. It really made me stop, sit back and think what I actually love about my blog and how much I’ve learn’t along the way, but more importantly why I started it in the first place.

I’ve started to realise why I write and share so much, it’s my little escapism and where I can capture my everyday moments and family adventures. It’s where I can practice my love of photography and be the most creative in the photos I take. It’s where I can share and hopefully inspire you with my musings of all the things I love, It’s where we can look back on our family everyday moments and big events and live those times again.

So I’m going to stop the comparison game and putting myself down. Stop putting so much pressure on myself about how I write and get back on the horse as they say.

I think the best advise I’ve ever been given is to write like knowone is reading (maybe they’re not) but I still want to capture these moments for myself and continue to share it with you.

I really hope you stick around as normal routine will commence and I get back to writing about all the things I love.

Until next time

    Oh so sorry to hear you lost your way. But glad to hear you are going to continue. I love to read your posts, they are a breath of fresh air and remind us all to take step back and slow down. Sounds like a step back is just what you needed too. Sometimes all we need is a new perspective. Xx

    Sorry to read this but I have been feeling exactly the same! I have been struggling to find the space to let my brain even think about writing a blog post. It’s so hard and especially so when we lead such busy lives. I think this is natural though and we just need to keep plodding and pushing forward. I love that you are continuing and you have the right mindset about it being for capuring your special moments xx

    It’s so easy to compare yourself to others isn’t it. I’m glad you’ve managed to get through that and write because you want to. Write what you want when you want!

    Oh yes it’s so easy to compare yourself isn’t it. I honestly think you need to give yourself a break and actually see your blog is amazing. I’m nicheless. I will write about anything that intrigues me.

    Sounds like you’ve found your way again. I think the important thing is to do what’s fun. Otherwise, what’s the point, eh! Here’s to rediscovered mojo!

    You’ve done better than me Caroline, I’ve lost my mojo for such a long time now. Like you, I’m looking for direction now that my kids are getting older and not wanting to be so involved, but I’ve also been feeling very down and lonely and realised I need to get out more and do stuff rather than being stuck at my computer. I really hope you find what makes you happy and manage to keep blogging, as you say you’ve worked so hard on it. We will both find our way!

    I think this is something all creative people suffer with, you’re definitely not alone! The nature of creativity is that it ebbs & flows and that’s absolutely ok. The niche thing is a funny one and if you’re wanting to make a full time career from the blog then it probably does help to have one but at the end of the day, if you have to pigeon hole yourself into a niche then its not going to feel authentic anyway. The best thing is to do exactly as you are doing and write like no one is watching, write from the heart and be yourself. People love & respond to this so much more than anything else x
