I went from an active blogger who spend her most her day on WordPress, to someone who only occasionally looks on WordPress.
And all of that in just 2 months.
Not only my blogging rhythm has changed.
My whole life has after the move.
I am no longer spending half my life in the car and traffic jams.
By 5 in the afternoon, Jasper is home from work and I have showered after a gym session.
Plenty of time to blog, one might think.
I have been struggling however.
First of all, I am not an evening person. Inspiration doesn’t come easy to me after lunch.
Second is that I am not enjoying blogging as much as I used to due to some criticism I got.
Some have dissed my doodles.
I got messages from a few who my doodle store is never going to work and it’s all very childish.
One of the more painful things since this is something I actually enjoy doing.
I have also been told that my blogs are sometimes difficult to understand.
Nothing really specific or help to improve, just those empty words.
The truth is that I don’t do much proof reading before posting.
But also, not everyone on here is a native English speaker.
If this is a problem for, an international blogging platform might not be the place for you.
After I wrote my post Do you use make up to make you feel more confident? I got a message if I am now going to do only sponsored post.
All because I put in one link to Korean Beauty products, which was only meant for informational purposes.
Some of my posts contained my “darker side”.
I am not the type of person who is going to pretend to be perfect and only spreading butterflies & rainbows.
I am OK with saying how I handled some occassion, even if it wasn’t in the most correct way.
I got many “Remember, God is watching you messages”.
If you’re going throw in religious lines, please limit yourself to only your own blog.
I have been trying to make new “friends”.
There is one person in particular whose posts I really like.
He doesn’t have too many subscribers. He gets a few likes every now and then.
And there is that one comment from me which he chooses to ignore.
I guess should realize that is trying to send me a message by doing that.
“Gaining haters means that you’re popular” I was told.
How sad that those two go hand in hand.
My love for blogging is decreasing.
Unfortunately, because some of the nicest people I know, I have met on here.
There’s a few of you who I wish we could meet up every Friday after work to drink a glass of red wine and complain about the week and cheer other up.
There is a few of you I would love to go out partying with.
There is a few of you I would love as my gym buddy.
And there is at least one of you I wish was my colleague.
Something tells we could work effectively and actually get things done.
I do hope this is just a phase.
Have you experienced a phase like this? How did you cure it?
