for the last 3 months i have been struggling a bit with my blog. struggling to keep up to date with it...struggling to get inspired to blog...struggling to want to take images with my camera...& even struggling to read my favourite blogs.
i first thought it was the big interstate move and life was just busier than it used to be. then self doubt crept in and i have wondered 'well who wants to read about what i had for lunch or dinner?' there are so many fabulous bloggers around and here i am just banging on about a delicious latte or a steaming bowl of pho!
my trusty canon camera was always stored in my handbag, at the ready to capture whatever came across my day...but now sadly it is hanging up amongst the hats on the coat rack.
i want to get back the inspiration i once had...will it come? i have read before on other bloggers posts comments like 'gone on vacation'...or 'need time out'... is that what i need or have i come to my blogging end?
i think i too have become more and more self conscious about taking images in public of the drink/food i am about to consume. gone are the days of just snapping away...or asking the husband/children to wait until i have photographed it...or are they?
i also believe that blogging has added to my girth! i call it my third boob! not attractive...i eat and then i sit on my bottom and blog what i ate for several hours! this process is not exactly helping my body that's metabolism is continuously slowing down... hmmm would i be this size if i never blogged...i mean i could never stop eating delicious food & drinking my wine!?
i have in this post raved on...which is unlike me. the essence of my blog has always been keep it short, always be positive and let the images do the talking.
i would love to hear from other bloggers who have thought their blogging inspiration was drying up? how & will i get my gig going again?
