It is Monday 22nd February at 2:54 pm and I have been staring at this blank page for the entire day. My mind can’t seem to focus enough to put a coherent thought together. I have about eight potential posts ideas in my drafts and yet I have no words or motivation to research or much less write anything.
I’ve been blogging since May 16 2018 when a co-worker of mine suggested I try it. My writing has been sporadic at times since that date but I am in a much better blogging space than before. After writing 149 posts, I am feeling a bit stuck. I want to write and I have topics to write about but yet my words aren’t flowing. Even getting these words out is a challenge.
Blogging has been a wonderful, challenging and rewarding endeavour so far and I will be continuing for as long as I can write. However, I think I need a break from everything that comes with blogging. Trying to build a following (I appreciate all you followers), increase engagement, raise my DA score so I can work with brands in the future, write about topics that I enjoy that hopefully resonates with you, find topics that are relevant, interesting and encourages meaningful discussion, trying to optimise my blog for SEO and putting myself out there for the world to see has taken its toil.
I have to say that I admire bloggers like you, Olivia who continuously publishes insightful content on top of all the other things you do in life. I know it is not easy but you certainly make it look simple.
There are so much things I want to do and I think that is the crux of my problem right now, I have too much going on in my head. I need some time and space to reflect, analyse and plan out my life. I basically need a extended admin day to catch up on life and reconnect with my values and access my goals.
Anyway all this is to say that I will be taking a break from blogging for two weeks to a month unless the blogging itch starts, but I’ll see how it goes. Feel free to check out my previous posts and consider joining my mailing list so that we can keep in touch. I will be catching up on my fellow bloggers’ posts during this downtime so kindly leave a link to any posts you would like to share with me, it can be your best or worst or somewhere in-between.
Have a lovely rest of the week and see you sometime in March.
Thank you for reading.
