This post might be different than all my other ones. I’m just going to be sharing my thoughts and the state of the blog. I’ve hit a creative wall here. The blog has gone through a lot. I’ve had it since I was in undergrad so 6 years or so. It went from being a personal journal to what it is now.
My blog will always be my creative child. Even though I have started giving more attention to other platforms, I will always give my blog attention. But it’s been harder to get passionate about the things I write. I love the topics I talk about in my Let’s Talk category but I feel like as a reader, those have to be broken up with something more light-hearted.
It gets hard when I know some things like guides or advice listicles get more hits but I also want to write about the things I’m passionate about. So now I will start drafts and then leave them abandoned. The thing is that I know I don’t want to stop posting on my blog. But I feel like I don’t have the drive I had before.
YouTube and Instagram make it so easier sometimes to connect with other people. Within seconds, you can comment and reply and find new accounts to follow. Which makes it funner to just scroll and discover something new. But blogs have a longevity which is important to invest in.
So that’s where I’m at. I’ve hit a creative wall and I need to backtrack a bit. I know I want to write and create but I don’t know what. Maybe this calls for a break or maybe I just need to write anything to see what sparks joy. This is not a goodbye post, just me talking through my creative block feels.
