Some of you may have noticed that I have been absent from my blog and social media recently. Initially I had very limited access to the internet but then actually, I felt like I had lost myself in blogging. I had writers block, I kinda still do to be honest and I know I have brought this topic up before, but I felt really really bad about it.

I began to think oh no, I’m letting my readers down. I’m losing followers across my social mediums and I couldn’t do much about it. Sometimes we do fall off from blogging, I’m sure there isn’t one person out there who doesn’t feel like this at times. Someone who constantly has ideas flowing through their mind and could put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard) to get them down to engage thier readers. Sometimes just sometimes, it just doesn’t happen that way! (I feel like this post is turning into a bit of a rant, and so be it, it is for me to express after all).

Anyway, the point I was trying to make is yes I had fallen off/lost my blogging mojo but it’s not the end. A break isn’t the end of the world and it doesn’t make me any less of a ‘blogger’ to stop every now and then. Ok I admit, I’m not anywhere near as big as others out there and that’s ok because I am still learning and doing this as an outlet and not a career.

It goes for other elements and areas of our lives too. Sometimes we just need to stop worrying about doing things that meet the needs of others without putting our own happiness first. Worrying if we haven’t lived up to the norm or panicking  if things haven’t happened the way we wanted them to by a certain time.

Most things in life do not always go to plan but we have to keep pushing towards our goals and who knows, something bigger and better may be in store! Hold on and don’t let go, things will be ok in the end.

I will get back into the swing of things, pick up the momentum again but I will not force blog posts for the sake of them. Have you ever felt like you lost your blogging mojo? How did you overcome it?

Thanks for reading x

    Totally feel you on this and it’s happened to me a few times. When you need a break, take it and get yourself together. Trust me it’s better to have 2 gray quality posts in a month than 15 rubbish ones. Hope you get over the writers block soon xx
