What Can I Say?

Sometimes I take breaks from blogging, usually because I have nothing much to say, but sometimes because I get in these weird, bored with blog land kinda moods.

I go through the day and while Natalie learns a new word, or does something incredibly cute, I just don't feel like talking about every little thing right then and there and save some stuff for a larger update (like her 15 month post coming soon).

We have play dates with friends or enjoy an awesome afternoon at the park but I'm sometimes overcome with an, "Do I really need to put my whole life on display?" feeling.

Do I even need to write this post now explaining myself?

I know I'm not obligated to blog. I can share as much or as little as I'd like on any given day.

I enjoy it a lot but sometimes I just can't find it in me to stop by and update. I don't mean to sound negative or whiny in any way, I just want to give a brief reason why I go weeks without posting sometimes.

 It doesn't help that I get moody about real life sometimes and just feel stuck in a rut. I have such a good life, what is there to complain about?

Absolutely nothing.

I start to feel bored though, or like a loser. I know that sounds kinda fucked up considering my daily life is centered around Natalie. I do get lonely though, especially when the weather is freezing and we are cooped up inside all day. I have been lucky enough to have some friends come visit a few times last week and I'm really grateful for that.

Again, I know I have nothing to complain about and I'm not, I'm just letting out how I feel sometimes.

I get into this same blogging rut sometimes, but not in awhile. I have to admit though.. the only reason I blog frequently now is because I do it all at work since I'm not very busy. I don't blog from home at all. If I didn't work, I'd probably barely blog. I hope you get past your rut. I'd be sad if you stopped blogging.

Thanks Ness! I know what you mean though, if I worked more I would probably blog more too, since I find I have a lot more free time at work than I do at home.

Bored with blog land?? Noooo. Haha. J/k. Ugh, me too. I have been lagging recently...not with posts...but with content and stuff.

Yeh, I get it totally! :)

It is YOUR blog. Write when you want. Write about whatever you like. You are not obligated to please others. :) When I blog, I love to blog about topics that interests me (cloth diapers, It's Deaf Thing, and etc). I write for me not for others. When I get into the mentality of I have to write for others, then it is when I start to feel like I am in rut.

I understand how that goes; I'm a SAHM, and my families don't live nearby. Neither does our friends. So it can get quite cooped up for us. I am anxious for warmer weather so I can take Forrest, and my dog for a walk.

I'm the same as Vanessa, I do most of my blogging during my downtime at work, if I was a SAHM I would probably blog even less. On the days I have to stay home because Hunter is sick I don't even think of blogging, he hates it when I'm on the computer and by the time he's in bed I just don't have the motivation. I've been in a bit of a blogging rut lately myself.

We all get stuck in a rut sometimes. And especially now with instagram, it's like repeating yourself on FB, Instagram AND blogging!

I have such similar feelings every winter... the lack of sunny weather really takes it's toll on me - so you are not alone there (and not fucked up at all). And I hate feeling obligated (or anything resembling that) to blog - it takes away from the experience. Sometimes I lose motivation for blogging and feel like WHAT is the point..? Other times I can't get enough of it and love writing just for the heck of it.

And I totally love your humor and your thoughts on things so you could blog about the dirt in your front yard and I'd read it and enjoy it 100%, haha! :o) Hang in there, only TWENTY days until spring. That is less than a fricking month. I cannot be more excited and ready for that!!! XXXOO!

We're here whenever you feel like talking girl! ;)
Love on that little girl

I hear ya lady! The last few weeks we have been stuck at home since all of our friends seem to have continuous colds and add in the cold rain and I feel blah. I have been slow with the whole blogging thing lately too since I don't seem to have but a few minutes when I can set Carter down and am not running after Leah! And I don't have anything interesting to say! I did just start an instagram account though and that is my new favorite social media distraction :) Do you have one?

Unknown February 27, 2013 at 4:26 PM  

yea I try to blog daily and I worry I will bore someone to tears

Sean Marie February 27, 2013 at 5:22 PM  

Thanks Ali! Once the spring is here I think I'll be jubilant and full of energy. Right now I'm just kinda blah though. Not that I'm a sad sack of it just moping around or anything but it will be so nice to be able to spend hours and hours outside everyday.

Sean Marie February 27, 2013 at 5:24 PM  

I did have one until I realized I spent WAY too much time on there and posted way too many photos! I miss it already though and am thinking of making a new account again. :)

Jazz February 28, 2013 at 11:43 AM  

I feel exactly the same lately! Well I've felt like it for months to be honest, I used to do posts on such random topics, but I never have much to say anymore even though I feel like I do so much more in my life than when I first started blogging, so I should have more to say to be honest. Maybe the random topic posts came out of nowhere because I was that bored with life and had nothing else to do.
And I'm barely ever home either, but when I am I can never be bothered to do a post. & For this reason I rarely even read other's blogs anymore which I feel really bad about.
God, my life is difficult at times...
Hope you get your motivation back and hope Natalie gets better soon too!

I think a lot of us can relate. Sometimes broadcasting every little thing gets old. After some time passes, you feel a bit more refreshed to jump back in.

Mama March 5, 2013 at 2:23 PM  

I can totally relate. I have even given my blog an expiration date... I am thrilled to have the memories and the photos within arm's reach, but this isn't a career, it's a hobby. Last week someone emailed me and told me my blogging hasn't been what it used to be... for real... someone I don't even know... I wanted to be like... HELLO THIS IS NOT A JOB IT'S A HOBBY... NO ONE IS PAYING ME! So... I get it, sometimes this blogging stuff is annoying.
