Missing in Action Blogger!!

Hola People!

I have not blogged in forevvvveh! Excuses?? I have tons! But......... I really feel like I put a lot of pressure on myself and this whole blog thing. I started out wanting to blog as an outlet for the random things that I love and thoughts that I have. My biggest inspiration was reading the blogs of the fabulous women that I follow and seeing these awesome posts they always have. I would get so excited when a new post was up by my favorite bloggers and I thought how cool would that be if people were excited to read what I thought???

Fast forward to me thinking....what to write?? what if what I do write is not entertaining??? what if people don't like me???? what if I am one of those people who 'borrows' ideas from other bloggers and don't even realize it?????!! That leaves me, in the corner, in the fetal position......which is not cute!

Anyway, here I am giving it the old college try again....please be gentle :)

How do y'all handle it all?? Work, family and social media??? Do you ever feel like you are in a rut or feel pressure about blogging???


  1. Welcome back! I've missed you!!!

    I think we all feel the same way about blogging at one time or another. I read other blogs and think how cool those people are. And then I read my own blog and think about how terribly uncool I am. But then I realized that I have followers and people who comment regularly so I must be somewhat slightly interesting to someone?! At least I hope so.

    While I was in school, I struggled to keep up with my own blog, let alone anyone elses. I worried that I'd lose followers and I did lose a couple but others soon took their place. Now school is out for the summer and I'm catching up with everyone again.

    My advice? Just be true to yourself and try not to add any undue pressure to yourself. Enjoy the ride and just appreciate it for what it is.

  2. Welcome back and I'm so glad to "see" you back in these parts again :)

    I remember what it was like when I first started and there is definitely a small level of anxiety that comes along with it. You were doing a great job before, so just keep it up and always be yourself.

    I get to times where I feel like I'm forcing it and it's then I know that I need to take a step away until I find something worth blogging about.

    I'm here if you need anything at all :)


Hey ya'll, I just love reading your feedback! Thanks for stopping by!
