Bye Bye Blogger's Block


/ by
Okay so I may have overreacted when I got hit with blogger's block earlier in the week. I often say how I've been struggling to write and I got it into my head that it just wasn't working. The blogging daily was getting me down because I didn't have time for anything else, including the new fitness regime. The housework had been piling up, my ironing pile was starting to resemble a mountain and I felt like I was neglecting the boys.

This week month is particularly busy with birthdays and over the easter holidays we're planning on decorating both of the boys' bedrooms. I've been stressing about making sure I have everything ready for that and then it's LP's 5th birthday tomorrow and I've been stressing about that too. The blogger's block couldn't have come at a worse time! 

Blogging was one of the things that seemed to be going well for me just lately and with everything else being so manic I counted on that routine. So to have the block arrive shocked me, to say the least. The funny thing though, as I sat down this morning preparing for another busy day, was that I realised I was missing the blogging. I didn't feel like I had anything productive to say but I was certainly missing joining in with links and chatting to online friends. I never realised how much this means to me and I guess that's why I felt so down when I couldn't write anything.

Having taken the majority of the week away from the computer and trying to think about everything that I enjoy, including my boys, I think I'm going to stick with the routine as it currently is. I love that I have somewhere to vent when I get angry, people to chat with if I need to and something to keep my creative juices flowing, even when they don't want to.

The boys break up from school tomorrow which means a lot less time for blogging. I may not be quite as prompt with the link ups as usual but I'm hoping to get at least a little writing done. Of course there's the decorating which will take up a chunk of my time too. Let's just say the next couple of weeks are busy but I'll try my best, maybe a few late nights are in order.

I apologise for the bleak outlook I've had of late but it seems like it's passed now and I'm feeling better.

  1. Ah, I think that you have to go through those peaks and troughs, and when block strikes don't be too harsh on yourself. Heck, there are even pinterest boards dedicated to easy topics to spark a post, but if you need a break, take one, or come back and vent! It's your space after all. #AllAboutYou x

    1. That's great advice Zaz, I often feel really guilty for not posting but don't want to bore people to death!

  2. Oh I get blogger's block all the time - you may have noticed by the distinct absence of posts on the blog of late!! Time and panicking about having none of it leave me bereft of creativity!! Glad you got through your block #AllAboutYou

    1. Thanks! I think that's my biggest blocker too, time... I guess it's all about finding that balance.
