Blog Slump

I'm sure some of you have noticed that my blog has been a little less exciting lately and I've been missing a lot of days of posting. It's been a busy summer (in a good way) and I've had a hard time keeping up with my 5/6 posts a week schedule that I made for myself back in 2012. I've been busy so I haven't been working on many projects to blog about and most of my recent posts are more life related and less crafty/DIY related. While some of you (mostly family) don't mind that, I'm sure others are missing the recipes, crafts, home improvement projects, etc. Or even the more heart felt posts that I used to do more regularly.

I just feel like there is something missing and I can't quite put my finger on it. Most of the time writing a blog post has become a chore for me and it's just one more thing on my to do list that needs to be done. I'm not necessarily writing because I want to right now.

I'm not quite sure what the point of this post is. Maybe just to let you know that I have realized I need to refocus and regroup when it comes to my blog. Maybe I need a break. Maybe I need to push through it. Maybe I need to post less.

I'm not saying I want to give up blogging all together, I like it too much to do that. It still does give me joy and I do still love communicating with my readers. I'm just finding it hard to keep up.

So I guess this post is to apologize and to ask you to bear with me, as I find my groove again. I may continue to miss days but I'm hoping come colder weather and a less busy time, I will be able to get back into the swing of things. I hope you guys can understand.

  1. Don't apologize Jenn, it's YOUR SPACE. Sometime I find my blog is like one of those novels by a popular author. He/she cranks out a novel every year or two. After awhile, the novels start to sound alike. Then the author takes a break and comes back with a fresh idea....off and running and at the top of the best sellers list again.

  2. Totally understand! Slumps happen. And if my blog post expectations are starting to wear on you, just say the word!

  3. Doesn't matter how often you post, but hope you don't go away entirely. Good luck with your contemplations!

  4. Ditto PP - this is your space, to write what you want, when you want! Take time if you need for you!

  5. Thanks guys. I really appreciate you understanding. I definitely won't go away entirely but I may slow down my posting as I get my groove back. I'm going to try and not stress about posting every day by a certain time and just write what I WANT to write.

  6. I can relate...except I feel even worse because my blog just kind of died :( Maybe we can try to get our grooves back together?
