I’ve been having a hard time keeping my blog motivation lately. Between work and the commute, I’m out of the house for about 11 hours every day. When I get home, I’m eating, cleaning, spending time with Mister, and trying to relax is a tiny window of time before I have to get ready for bed to do it all over again. What I usually choose to do when I relax is catch up on internet stuff – blogs, social media, and any other links I feel like chasing.
Sometimes I’ll get an idea in my head and think, Hey that would be a great blog post! But then when I finally sit down to write it, many hours or days later, the introvert in me has decided that it’s not worth writing about. As a result, blog posts have been few and far between, and they haven’t had much substance.
Then there’s the outside world. While it’s been great having family and friends read my blog, it can also be a hindrance. I started this blog as a journal, and wasn’t afraid to write anything that was on my mind. Now, I think too much about how it will affect those who might read it and the effect that might have on my relationships. Because of this, I’m not as open as I used to be.
I’m not sure where to go from here. I do still consider blogging one of my main hobbies, especially since it’s easy to integrate into other areas of my life. But I’m not motivated lately, and I don’t know how to get that motivation back.
