Hi all, it’s me! Surprise surprise, I can actually post every once and a while. Although, today I just wanted to have an informal discussion with you all about what has been keeping me from the blogosphere- the dreaded blogging slump.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I’m no longer enjoying blogging or I want to stop. I always enjoy writing up posts about books, fangirling, and interacting with other geeky bookworms. I also have no intention of stopping anytime soon! After all, I’m only a little over two months out from my 3rd blog anniversary (woah- CRAZY).
At the moment, I simply have not had any motivation to do anything but sleep or play video games- super cool, right? Not so much. I miss reading like crazy and blogging over here on my corner of the internet so badly. I wish that I had the motivation to pick up my laptop and whip up a masterpiece to share. Alas, that is just not happening right now. Although, I have still been reading and have a few more book reviews that need to be typed up. In fact, by some miracle I’m still on track for my Goodreads reading challenge.
For the first time in a few weeks, blogging hasn’t seemed like such a daunting task. I finally got around to responding to some comments (I’m so sorry if I just responded to a comment that you posted forever ago), writing any type of post, and just opening WordPress in general. This feels so good, you all have no idea. I’m going to try real hard this week and upcoming weekend to get semi caught up on reading and commenting on posts, and I’m PUMPED.
So, that’s kind of what’s been up with me recently. Blogging had become a bit of a chore, and I absolutely NEVER want this to be a chore for me. Personally, I think I needed some time to step back, and I’m glad I did. This has made me more excited than I have been in a while to blog, and I’m hoping that lasts for at least a few months.
Have you ever experienced the awful blogging slump? What did you do to get out of it? Any awesome advice that you’d give to others (or me!) in a similar position? Let me know, I love chatting with you all!
