SHOULD I QUIT?!

Good morning beautiful souls,

This morning I just wanted to take a moment to be honest with you – and the truth is that I feel like I’m constantly struggling with my life / blog balance.

My problem is finding the time to not only create content and upload it, but also to interact with all you beautiful souls. I absolutely love writing my blog and there’s no way I want to quit, however the pressures that come with writing a blog weigh down on me nearly every day.

Sometimes I’m left feeling, annoyed and disappointed in myself because I have all these amazing ideas I can’t wait to share with you which make me feel that creating content should be an easy task; but when I don’t find the time to set ideas into motion the guilt just creeps in. These days all I’ve managed is to just about upload a new blog post on time, but I’ve barely even done that, and interaction?! What’s even is that?! It’s been far too long now since I’ve really taken the time to interact with you beautiful souls and blogs and for that I am truly sorry.

I know it all boils down to priorities and I could definitely make better use of my time sometimes, but socializing and having evenings to unwind are also important and necessary for me. And when I do get a day off, if I’m not spending it catching up on all the housework, I like to go out and do something fun for the day and so again time flies away too quickly. So I don’t think one prioritizes the other for me really, but as they’re all important to me I need to work on finding a healthy balance between everything.

I really admire all of you out there writing such wonderful blogs and taking the time to interact with others. So I just want to take this moment to thank you all for the continual support, even when I’ve not been great at returning it, it means a lot to me! I hope to see you all stick around and know that I am working on finding a better life / blog balance to hopefully give way to a better routine with less stress and pressure and thus a better blog.

Also if anyone else struggles with finding a balance and has any tips I’d love to know!!

Love you all ❀

  1. Go with your own flow. I will speak only for myself… you owe me nothing. No one owes me much really. It helps free me of me πŸ˜‡

  2. I’ve been going through this exact thing at the minute. It feels like blogging is no longer a creative passion, and instead a stressful task that I’m no longer good at managing. So I’ve overhauled my blog – given it a new image, and I’m cutting back on checking stats. I’m also being more relaxed and writing less blog posts so I can interact more. Hopefully that helps πŸ™‚

    1. Good on you, I’m glad you’ve found fresh inspiration πŸ™‚ I’m trying to concentrate on just enjoy the process for myself, rather than as you say checking stats and the like, because in the end, I started this for me as a creative hobby and thus I shouldn’t feel stressed or overwhelmed by it but just be able to enjoy the process πŸ™‚ xo

  3. It’d be really sad if you did quit! I know how tricky it is finding a balance, and a break may do some good for you. Do whatever feels right in your heart. We’ll still be here for you however long you’re gone. 🌷

  4. I am super new to this, but I’ve been controlling the amount of time I spend on my blog. I know my goals, and I get them done and then step away from the blog. And if it starts to be an obligation I switch things up. πŸ™‚

  5. I would say take a break and only blog if you feel like you have something you want to blog about. I found taking a break at the end of last year really helpful in terms of me realizing whether or not I actually wanted to blog. I would recommend reading other people’s posts as this always inspires me – Sundays are my days to read other people’s blog posts and reply to comments because I like spending weekdays relaxing after work. xx

    1. I know I definitely do not want to quit, because I know I’ll regret it, but maybe I’ll take a break when I go on holiday, have some time to just be in the moment and not worry about the blog but then hopefully come back with renewed energy πŸ™‚ And yes, I love reading other peoples post too, it is inspiring, for me it’s just finding the time to do everything when I also just want to look after myself, not be in front of a screen all the time and relax aha xo

  6. Honestly this is so relatable and I’m in exactly the same predicament, I love blogging so much, and I do only have a part time job but it’s so difficult managing time with my boyfriend, getting out quality content, having a social life, doing housework, seeing family and having time to just chill out on my own. I completely get it, and have tried to get my head around it so many times, and I think to myself, when it comes down to it, blogging is my hobby and I shouldn’t feel bad if I don’t have time but yet I still do 😩 I’m with you chick x x

    1. Tell me about it! ❀ yes you are right! I am doing this for fun, it's my hobby, not my job and I should thus enjoy it and not let it stress me! But yes I totally feel guilty too if I don't run on schedule aha! Here's to us doing what's best for us :* xo

    1. Thank you, that’s so sweet of you! I will continue writing but I think rather than stressing over having to keep a schedule I’ll just post when I have the time so that I can continue to just enjoy the process πŸ™‚ xo
