Confession: I’m a worrier. I’m always in my head thinking about things that are done and over or can’t be changed. I also worry about things that I can change but I don’t.
You see, I haven’t posted in weeks. I’ve been thinking about it and brainstorming about it but not actually sitting down to do it. I believe this is what’s called a blogging slump in “the community” and it’s been an intense one!
Along with my feelings of not wanting to blog comes an overwhelming feeling of guilt. I feel guilty because you, my lovely readers, read what I write and soak it up and respond so thoughtfully. So when I don’t blog, I feel like I’m not keeping up my end of the blogger/reader relationship.
But despite my guilt for not posting, I feel like an even bigger let down would be to put out crap content just to put out content. I want people to read the things that I say because they’re entertaining or informative, not just because they’re there.
Have you ever felt like this? What do you do when you’re feeling slumpy or inadequate as a blogger? I would love to hear about your experiences and advice!
I want to do better for you. I don’t promise to be perfect or even consistent, but I promise to try to do better. To put out at least a little bit of content that I’m proud of that I think you will enjoy.
Please know that I appreciate you even when I don’t do a great job of showing it!
