Today is one of those days where I just cannot for the life of me find any motivation to write a blog post. I have a list of ideas for times like this, but none of those ideas appeal to me at the moment. I’m looking at my blogging schedule and seeing a whole lot of empty slots where blog posts should be (and they’re approaching way too quickly!). I look at other blogs and read some posts and admire how other bloggers are so good at blogging, how they write such clever posts, how they write such informative and helpful posts, and this puts me into even more of a slump because I lack self-esteem and I feel like anything I write will just be insignificant.
I know this is sounding like a bit of a downer post and that’s not what I intended, so I’m sorry about that. I just have days like these and they come and go. Tomorrow I might just get some motivation back and write one of those posts I have on my list of ideas, and hopefully that’s the case.
I’m not very good at opening up on my blog (or in real life, let’s be honest here). I wish I could write more meaningful posts to go along with my book-related posts. I tried my hand at it with my posts about miscarriage and I lost followers as a result. That didn’t help my already-present self-doubt when it comes to those types of posts.
I want to blog about parenting more, but again I’m afraid of losing my book-loving followers. Plus, I’m just not really sure what people would be interested in reading. I have ideas, but not sure if they’re good or not.
I don’t know how to get through blogging slumps like this other than just waiting for it to pass and staring helplessly at my empty schedule and hoping to have motivation tomorrow. I’m curious if others have experiences like this and how you deal with it?
