It's possibly come across in previous blog posts, but lately I'm feeling a little....lost. Blogging tends to be a place where you put your best foot forward; paint on a smile and show the world how great things are. But things haven't been great for me lately. The thought of 'keeping it real' and showing the less photogenic aspects of my life (like the pile of washing waiting upstairs) has never really fazed me, but the one thing bothering me most lately is how empty I feel with regards to blogging.
For the first time in 4 years, I've got nothing to blog about. I feel like I've got nothing of interest to say, and nothing that anybody would want to read about. I'm unsure of what this means for me. I love blogging, and whilst I've had the odd bout of blogger's block in the past, it's never been long-term like this. Being 'A Blogger' is a hobby, it doesn't define me, but has played a major part in making me who I am today. So what if I never find my footing again?
The prospect is daunting, and that in itself makes me even more scared to even try.
Honestly, I'm not sure what I'm hoping that this post will achieve. Maybe the act of putting fingers to keyboard and verbalising the way I'm feeling will be enough to snap me out of it. Maybe in a few days I'll be back to normal - brimming with ideas and raring to go. But maybe I just want you all to know that I'm having a tough time of it lately and that I need you to bear with me.
So there we have it. The reason things have been a bit haphazard around here and an insight into my life lately. I don't need sympathy, but any hints and tips - on blogging or life in general - would all be a great help.
