So lately I’ve been feeling like I should just throw in the towel … (again), when it comes to blogging, because I feel like it’s starting to become way too time consuming! I really want to post frequently, but I feel like it’s taking up valuable time that I could be using to do something else.
(Don’t ask me what that something else is though, because I have no freaking clue.)
So I’ve just been a bit torn as to what I should do.
However, I’ve decided that I should start taking my laptop to work with me, so I can draft blog posts on my train rides to and from work, since their about an hour long each way.
(That way I’d have more time when I’m at home to focus on more important things aka my daughter!)
I obviously still need to work on a good routine right now! (Hopefully I can get a good one going for the new year.) But even though I may be feeling a bit down, what I do know is that blogging makes me feel more accomplished in life. (Does that sound as crazy to you as it does to me or no? Sigh.) I’ve always been a writer, (and a talker) so blogging comes naturally; and since the rest of my life currently sucks right now, my blog is what has been keeping me sane!
I know a lot of bloggers usually ask other bloggers what keeps them motivated and today I realized what keeps ME motivated. Aside from finding interesting things to blog about, I’ve noticed that if I read someone else’s blog that I REALLY like, I’ll instantly become inspired again. I start thinking, “Yeah … I can do this! Look how great her blog is, I want mine to be this great one day! Guess I should start working on mine a bit more.”
(Okay so maybe that’s not EXACTLY what goes through my head, but that’s basically how I feel when I read a couple of the blogs I’m currently following.)
So this blog is dedicated to the blogs (and bloggers) that I have recently found and currently love! It’s also my way of saying thank you for keeping me motivated and inspired to keep blogging!
Here are the blogs (and their owners):
So now that you guys know who they are (and now that THEY know they’re my inspiration) I’d like to know one thing.
To the ladies mentioned above:
How do you guys stay motivated and inspired?
All of you women seem to live full lives and STILL have an amazing blog, so please tell me how do you do it! Do you have a routine or schedule? Do you plan ahead? What’s the secret?
And if any of you other bloggers have tips as to how I can blog frequently without feeling overwhelmed, leave a comment below and let me know! Thanks in advance.
