I just started blogging again after months away.
Part of the reason was that life got extra crazy and stressful back in the Spring. That hasn't all quite settled out yet, but I working on it. The other, probably bigger, reason that I stopped for so long was that it started to feel like a chore. I had a lot of ideas for posts, but finishing them seemed to be a huge chore. (I currently have 110 posts in my drafts folder - ugh!)
I did have a steep learning curve with anything computer related, but I think the biggest problem was finding my genuine voice. Everything I do as a mom - and as an adult - I try to do in a simplified and efficient way - but every post that I did felt like it had too many steps from start to finish (lighting for and editing pictures, all of the social media to promote the post, etc). It started to feel like a hassle instead of fun.
After some time to step back and re-evaluate, I saw a lot of ways that I could make this easier - and fun again!
I will be re-vamping some things over the next few weeks - and I am looking forward to reconnecting with the Mom Blogger community!!
