I’ve been trying to keep up with this whole “blog everyday” concept. I did it last year and only four days throughout the entire year. It was a nice little challenge for me to do at that time. Now I feel like I’m blogging for the wrong reasons. As if I was only doing it for better views on my posts and I think seeing my views just decline so bad for two years before, where they were in the 80-500 views in a week to 10-40 views in a post. It hurts because I take my hardest to produce good stuff and I feel like I’ve just went screwed myself over. I’ve been wondering about this for a long time and I have felt like that I’ll run out of things to talk about and everybody says, “oh you never have enough stuff to discuss on your blog.” Yeah, well that’s not true! Let’s get something straight first, I’ve been blogging for five years and I’ve had two separate blogs. I love running this blog like I loved running my last one. I’m just in one hell of a rut and talking about things that aren’t happening and only posting what’s going on in my mind can get dangerous! Haha! I don’t want to stop blogging completely because let’s face it, blogging has been my lifeline. It’s my best friend. It’s always there when I need to let loose and go crazy! Nothing right now is fresh anymore.
I started this blog with a new change of where I wanted to go and who I wanted to be. I haven’t lost that, but the content isn’t where it should be. Writing–blogging is supposed to be about having fun and I’m not having fun at the moment. I think of blogging as a job like what I didn’t want, I’m not a journalist nor do I intend to be one, blogging was my ultimate outlet and I loved being somebody’s highlight of the day! It’s not mine right now. Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, I am here to say I will post here and there. My “challenges” I post like Bloggers Do It Better, Five Sentence Fiction, Free Write Friday, Ketchup With Us, and Picture It & Write will be up when I feel like doing them! My 52 Week writing challenge has been proposed temporally, also all of my other posts like Spring’s Paradise, Roll With Me, Tune Tuesday, and Blogs That I Love will be up whenever things happen. Other than that, nothing else will be posted. No quotes, lists, random short stories, etc until further notice! If you are on Twitter, I will be posting a different post from my archives everyday (I’ll try) and hopefully that’ll give you some highlight and bring a smile on your face. See you all on Tuesday for another edition of Tune Tuesday! Thank you for the viewers and nice comments. I’ll be back to my old self soon! I just need a nice good break from routine!
