On being a bad, bad blogger

After reading Tartan Kiwi’s post last night regarding her blogging slump, I realised I have been feeling exactly the same way. I start a post most days, lose interest and leave them abandoned in drafts, never to be released into the blogosphere. Not spending the few extra moments needed to be able to hit publish and feel like I have created content for another day {this is important to me, something measurable and tangible which I genuinely enjoy}.
It’s not a lack of inspiration, I have post ideas out the ying-yang.
It’s a problem with the translation of said ideas into cohesive writing.
Despite returning from Christchurch and Around the Table brimming with enthusiasm and genuine joy at being part of such an amazing bogging community, my blogging has slowed to a gross trickle of linky entries.
I have a to-do list of necessary re-writes and updates and navigational improvements due on the site which I haven’t glanced at in weeks months.
Of course I have my myriad of first-world excuses to back up my creative sloth

  • It’s very uncomfortable to sit at the computer at the moment
  • The IPad is to hard to blog on
  • The screen on the laptop is too small……

I guess I’m just a bad, bad blogger {who is currently enjoying a stunning day in the sun at Parakai whilst my big boy and his bestie have a marvellous time in the pools and on the slides}.
Maybe sometimes I just have better things to do?

Autumn Days at the Pools

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.

  4. I don't know about you, but putting it down in print and admitting the problems has done wonders for me!!! I sewed a few wee projects today and after I've taken a few photos will at last have some decent material to blog- yay!
    Be kind to yourself, don't put too much pressure on and the inspiration will return with a vengeance…
