Where to begin with this post; I have been in a little place that I like to call limbo. I have been going back-and-forth with the idea of shutting down my blog. It is not that I do not like blogging, I do, but more to do with the fact that I do not really have anything more to say. When I sit down to write a blog post I stare at the blank screen with no words to type. I know that I have lost a lot of blog readers because my blogging voice has faded into the background of the internet, but I am ok with that and I think it has to do with the fact that I know I lost my voice (blog voice.)
While I was away relaxing in AZ with family, I had a lot of time to think about where I want this blog to go. The questions that I asked myself were these… Do I really love blogging? Is it really time to shut down my blog and walk away? What does blogging mean to me? Why do I blog?
I do love blogging and it would sadden me to shut down this blog and walk away. I sent my friend CaL an email with these very words and she wrote back this “I think it's just lack of inspiration or an emotional overload that finally came down on you.” Everything about that sentence is right. I do lack inspiration and I do feel this emotional overload when it come to blogging. So where do I go from here? The answer is simple... I go exploring for inspiration. I let myself have a day or two off when I need it.
As for finding my blog voice again, I think that will come with time, but for now I will continue blogging and I will blog for me. I am going to throw all these blog “rules” out the window and start making my own rules!
So what is next for the "Oh Shoot" blog?
A new blog design (I was working on one, but at the last minute I decided that I did not love it.)
To fall in love with my blog (boyfriend) all over again.
I hope that you will continue reading and I will continue writing.
P.s here are two blog post from IFB blog that I can totally relate too.
