I’m doing a little update because, quite frankly, I’m not really proud of the way things are shaping up here. I love blogging – I really, really do – but I find myself out of good ideas constantly and sometimes I’m even too lazy to even sit at my computer and write. My attitude toward blogging is shaping up to be similar to my attitude toward school as the senioritis creeps in more and more.
So here’s where I’m at: My most entertaining post in the past few weeks, in my opinion, was my April Fool’s Post – which I think speaks to just how boring my blog has been content wise lately. It is pathetic.
And it’s not like I don’t have ideas for posts – I do have ideas. I’m often too lazy to execute them because I feel that no one would read them – they aren’t useful or entertaining to anyone else. I know because personally, I wouldn’t read them. Just to give you an idea, I made this list: what’s on my desk, short getaway essentials, and handbag hoarder #2: beach totes edition. These ideas are things I would’ve once found a way to execute, even though I would have known deep down they are weak ideas. But now writing a blog post that’s weak just seems like such a waste – so I just don’t do anything at all.
You might want to ask me what I’m asking myself: Why don’t you write posts like the posts you like to read? And the truth is, there are only a few select blogs left that I actually truly like to read, and I’m pretty sure I only like to read them because I appreciate the voice and point of view the author brings. Therefore, it’s not really something I can replicate.
I love some good outfit posts, but that’s just not my thing – it really never has been. So as more girls edge toward editorial photos, I’m going in the opposite direction – wanting to do more writing – and I feel like not many people want to read my long winded rambles on things. So as a result, I feel that if no one reads my blog, why am I blogging? Obviously I appreciate the satisfaction I get out of producing and maintaining this website, but I want feedback and interaction.
I’ve been really closed off on social media lately – and it’s because I tried for quite some time to amp up my social media, and got no results. I know everything takes time and effort, but it is very hard to stay motivated when other people are doing mediocre work and are receiving all the attention.
I know I keep making excuses and I keep writing posts like this but that’s just how I currently feel. I’m going to try to keep pushing myself, because I think that’s the only way to get into a groove, but I need to switch things up in some way shape or form. I’m not completely sure how, as I’ve been so bogged down by the overall monotonous nature of the blog world in general.
Let me know if you see where I’m coming from – and give me absolutely any feedback at all, positive or negative. Having some sort of interaction about this blog might be the thing I need to get back up and running.
