It’s been two months since my last blog post. I have more time lately that I could get a post up but I’m at a standstill on what to share… I feel like there is some sort of pressure associated with blogging- as in I can’t just mindless write a post, that my post must serve a purpose and have pictures, that there must be some structure. But then I try to remind myself I think I have maybe five readers… and I’m not a professional blogger… so shouldn’t I be able to write what I feel? But then where’s the invisible line that makes this no longer a blog but an online journal? Or is that really what a blog is supposed to be.. a journal of some sort?
I’m sure I could find time to make inventory and get my Etsy shop up and running again but that’s not even on my radar. To be truthful, it exhausts me just thinking about it. Sure, I’ve made time to fulfill an order for Miss Ellie as well as whipped up some Valentine’s. I loved every second of getting my craft on but I’m not ready to do anything more than move at a leisurely speed. But without LillyPea Designs, is there a purpose to this blog?
I think about sharing things- like my current ‘secrets’ to keeping it (aka my life) together, the progress I’ve made on my fitness goals, the cuteness that consumes me every day (aka my son) or a new recipe. But then I don’t because it all seems random to me. Like this isn’t a fitness blog so who cares that Jillian is kicking my post pregnancy butt?
But then again, my Google reader is filled with blogs. People I don’t know, people I’ll probably never meet IRL. Some have clear objectives (fashion, cooking, healthy living, babies) and some are just ya know, life…
How do I jumpstart this blog? Do I just dive in feet first and see what happens or do I let this blog fade to internet death?
