Blog Update

Blog UpdateThis past week or so you may have noticed that I’ve been a little absent, both from my blog and my twitter. I haven’t been posting on my blog as much as I would have liked to.

As you may or may not know I challenged myself to take part in blogtober where you post everyday in the month of October. When I challenged myself to this I knew that it wouldn’t be easy, especially with my job. If I wanted blogtober to be successful I knew that I would have to be organised – very organised.

Since I decided to take part in blogtober last minute – I literally decided to take part on the first day of October – I didn’t have a lot of time to plan for the month. For the first week I was just going with the flow and writing after work or during my lunch breaks, just whenever I had free time to write.

When it came to the second week, however, I was drained. I didn’t have the energy or time to write blog posts every single day. Whenever I arrived home from work I simply wanted to relax and nothing more rather than worrying about getting a blog post up each day. Keeping on top of blog posts is easier said than done – especially with a job.

After failing blogtober miserably I had a little rethink about my blog – hence why I haven’t posted in over a week now. I’ve been thinking about the kind of blog posts I want to produce, how often I want to schedule those types of posts, or even if blogging is for me at all.

Through this rethink I decided that I did in fact want to carry on blogging – it’s not something I want to give up with easily. You see, blogging keeps my mind occupied and that’s exactly what I need sometimes. But I don’t want to post on my blog just for the sake of it, what I’m trying to say is that I want my posts to be somewhat meaningful. Whether that’s sharing experiences or sharing my thoughts on a certain topic – I want them to be helpful in some way.

Hopefully I’ll continue to improve my blog and the content that I’m producing. Quality over quantity!

  1. Hey, I think k you did the right thing. Sometimes we need to take a step back to recuperate. Got to look after yourself first. Whatever you decide to do will be the right decision. If you do choose to blog I will look fwd to reading your next post xx

  2. Somebody recently said to me that as far as blogging goes, it’s about quality not quantity (as I’d said I don’t post as much as some other bloggers do). Write about things when you feel like it. Don’t feel as though you have to do it for everyone else – take the pressure off and blog at a leisurely pace. That’s what I do anyway! 😀

  4. It’s so hard to balance life and blogging but you will definitely produce great content if you give yourself time to write and write about things your passionate about. You’ve got this!

  5. Monthly blog challenges are always tricky, especially when you can’t prepare for them! I did Blogmas a couple of years back and quit a couple of weeks in too. But it does help you rethink your goals which is definitely useful when it comes to blogging. Quality over quantity is definitely one of the most important things!
