Somewhere around the month of September, after managing a whole three month stint at blogging, I lost my way a little. It was a Sunday evening and we’d just returned from a day in Bakewell when my plans to blog were sent into disarray. The disarray lasted for approximately three days but it seems that was all it took for me to lose my flow.
I’ve dabbled since but I’m keen to get back on the horse and so here’s where I think I went wrong:
- I set unrealistic targets. Five posts a week was too much and too difficult to maintain. It also resulted in some *ahem* questionable posts.
- I spent too much time comparing myself to others. I had a crisis of confidence and wondered why anyone would read what I have to say over all the other great bloggers out there.
- I forgot I started as a hobby and it became a chore.
So I’ve decided to pick up where I left off. If I want to post I will, if I don’t I won’t. I’m also going to enjoy and admire the work of others without questioning my own, which just happens to be a resolution for 2017. But more on that later.
