I ask myself that question a lot? Why don’t I write more? Why can’t these blog posts just flow out of me the way they run through my head? I am not a typical writer. To be completely candid I absolutely hated writing when I was younger. English was my most despised class in school so it is a wonder that I even got into the blogging world to begin with. My grammar is horrible, I don’t know where punctuation should go, but I love being able to come on here, share my thoughts in hopes that it either helps someone or it makes a connection.
The beauty of having my own blog is that I can write however it flows out of my brain. Sure I try to go over my blog posts when I write them to make sure they at least somewhat flow, but being grammatically correct is not really my focus. I don’t write as often as I would and should because I have to get into the just perfect place where ideas actually come out of my brain, through my fingers, and onto the computer screen. It takes a very quiet house and some serious inspiration to start to write. I have ideas for days of my own content and plenty that is backing up that is due to clients, but most days I just can’t get into that sweet spot where the words flow. Most days I have bad brain fog due to health issues. It is frustrating.
I have been struggling a lot lately with stress, eating the wrong things, and just regular life being super busy. I have several positions on PTA, soccer season has started back for both kids, and general mom/wife duties that at the end of the day or even during the day it is hard to sit for an hour plus to get a post or two written. I am in awe of those bloggers who crank out posts and their words flow like butter. I need lots of sleep, so when my kids go to bed I usually do as well. Most days I am crazy tired and it takes all I can just to get through a normal day.
When I have my good days I try to crank out as much as I can, but there are only so many hours in the day. You should see how many posts I have i draft mode right now.. haha If I could have someone else write while I go about my day and speak out the posts then man this blog would be crazy busy!!
So that’s a little insight into why I don’t write more though I would love to. If anyone wants to volunteer to come be my maid/nanny/assistant then let me know so I could devote more of my time to this blog like I would love to do. I have grown to love blogging and love that I can share my life with you my readers. It inspires me to keep going. It gives me an outlet to get outside my normal suburbs world so thank you for reading and I hope you will keep coming back. 🙂
