blogging frustrations.

I miss writing on here. 

Part of it is that since I got my Kindle Fire for Christmas, I rarely get on my laptop anymore. 

But even if I did, I don't know what to write about anymore.  

I am really starting to wish that I had started writing this anonymously... so that I could talk about some of the frustrating things in life without anyone knowing who was involved... not as a gossip thing but as a "I learned a lesson about what not to do" thing.  

Because if I can't talk about that stuff... then what else is there to talk about?  Today I changed 8 diapers.  Today I did some laundry and luckily was able to vacuum the floor during Myles' nap.  He is making funny noises.

I don't think so.

Like it or not this is my life now.  That sounds terrible.  I don't mean it that way though.  Right now I am the mother of a 2 month old.  It is seriously fantastic.  I love being a mom.  But for the ability to blog; pull in new readers, keep the old ones coming... its kinda boring.  I'm sure you all like seeing pictures of him, and just love his monthly updates, but I can only stand writing one of those a month... I can't imagine that being the only thing I talk about multiple times a week, let alone anyone reading it (other than his grandparents).  

I have done a couple of updates to the house... but I keep not writing about them because the spaces are not finished.  Maybe I should just start sharing the small updates instead of hoping for some big reveal that may never happen.

I guess all I am trying to say is I feel stuck.  I think about this blog almost everyday.  But I feel like  I have nothing I can write about anymore.


  1. I feel the same way! Sometimes I think I had started writing anonymously as well. That's why I haven't posted since right after Christmas. It's not an easy task to come up with interesting posts when all you really want to do is vent about something personal.

  2. I totally understand where you're coming from feeling a little stuck and uninspired to write. Most days I don't leave the house or do anything excited and it makes for very uninteresting blogging. Lately I've been in a blogging rut, for sure. I'm hoping to get better about blogging little things (a single piece of makeup to review, a small decor update, etc.), but I definitely struggle with that.

    Lately I've actually realized how much I enjoy modest posts from bloggers. Somehow they're a little more relatable and realistic. I really do think your readers would enjoy your sharing little snippets of your day, even if they don't seem like they'd be that exciting. Keep in mind too that you probably have a lot of friends and family who follow your blog (and lurk in the shadows without commenting) and they're sure to love seeing small updates here and there.

    Ultimately though, this space is yours, so I always say write when you feel inspired and don't feel pressured to when you don't.

  3. stopping by from MM! I too sometimes wish I started blogging anonymously - there is just so much frustration that I'd love to vent about during this residency process, mostly other co-workers work ethic (or lack of) ;) Hope you find something inspiring to continue blogging - I definitely go through spurts & while it's mostly uninteresting, I use it as my "phone" to friends as I'm really terrible about calling!
