Happy Friday! Today I wanted to talk about something that's been weighing on my mind lately, sorry for such a "heavy" topic on a Friday, but I think it's time I turn to some blog friends for help and advice on this topic.
Have you ever been unsure about if you're really cut out for this blogging thing?
I read a lot of blogs and I often feel like I don't have the energy to put into my blog like some other ladies do and insecurities and doubts start to flood my head about my own blog and myself, here are some of them...
I don't have a Twitter account (I can't seem to get on that bandwagon)
I don't take clever and funny Instagram pictures.
I often struggle with blog post topic ideas.
I don't feel "cool" or "fun" enough.
I hate taking pictures of myself so it's hard for me to put up cute photos and videos of myself.
I don't always have things to write about.
I wonder if anyone reads my blog anymore?
I don't get as many comments as I used to - do people not like me anymore?
Am I blogging for me or to just "keep up with it"?
I'll be honest, it's been a struggle for me to blog lately and I've been going back and forth in my head about whether or not to stop blogging. I find myself trying to remember why I started in the first place.
I'm extremely grateful I did start my blog, I've made some amazing bloggy friends, learned lots of great stuff, shared myself with strangers, received lots of great advice, and I have an awesome journal of the last year and a half of my life!
I really don't want to quit blogging, and I'm hoping this is just a feeling that comes around sometimes for everyone and I'm just in a little bit of a rut. It's just tough when I find myself having insecurities and doubts about something that was supposed to be fun in the first place.
Have any of you ladies felt this way - and if so, how did you overcome it and fall in love with blogging again?
