Blogging Failure.

I can't believe that I've only blogged once this month.  And only four times last month.  And only fifty times this entire year.  My husband tells me that I'm failing at blogging...  I seriously don't know why I'm in such a blogging funk.  I do love it.  I could blame it on my early morning crossfitting, which seriously tires me out for the whole day sometimes.  But that doesn't explain last week when I slept in every day and still didn't blog.  Or the months before crossfit began.  

I could blame it on work, and that's really probably a decent reason.  I normally do blog at work in the mornings, but these last few months have been pretty crazy.  Almost every day, as soon as I walk in the door, it's nose to the grind.  No time to poke around.  Except that's not true for every single day, and I still haven't blogged on those days either.

Really, I just don't feel all that interesting these days.  I don't take nearly as many pictures as I used to.  I think this weekend, I took two or three.  My days all pretty much look the same-- crossfit in the morning (or sleep, whatever...), work, then home to crash.  Some Tuesdays I have Bible study, most Wednesdays we have dinner with my grandma, but that's it.  There's nothing really to write home about.  Not that I'm complaining-- I love getting up in the morning to work out, going to work and being productive, then coming home to a loving husband for dinner and rest.  It's great.  But it's not the best blogging material.

I've read a LOT of books and gotten kind of obsessed with Harry Potter recently.  We have a new intern at work, who is fantastic.  Donny and I are planning a big road trip to Texas before and for Thanksgiving, which is going to be a blast.  I found a lipstick that I love.  We've been hanging out at the pool.  Work is going fantastic-- I've got some huge cases, which mean big fees, which means a nice bump in the paycheck.  All good things, but again-- not great blogging material.  

I want to be writing, but nothing happens when I open my browser to type.  So what do y'all do when you're in a blogging funk and don't feel like you have much to write about?  All suggestions and ideas are welcome!

  1. I totally feel you, girl. When life gets busy, I just let the blog stay on the back burner. I also get in a lot of funks. I think, for me, is just to let it run its course, is the best thing. I become more inspired the less stressed I am. That's why I'm blogging a ton this summer. Haha. But glad that life is treating you well nonetheless!!

  2. We all go through these times. It is hard to find time then when you have free time it is b/c you aren't doing much that is exciting enough to blog about. But that is ok. If you go on Pinterest there are lots of bloggers who have done posts on "blog post ideas" and that might be helpful?

  3. Sometimes I don't understand how people can blog EVERY single day. Not that there is anything wrong with it but I don't do anything very different day in day out that is blog worthy. I eat, play with my dog, go to work, come home and sleep. And repeat. Haha. Maybe do a post on some tips you have for something or a beauty post? I have definitely been in blogging funks before.

  4. I totally know what you mean. Unfortunately I don't have much advice, especially since I haven't blogged in a month! Eek! I will be interested to see what advice you get though :)

  5. I think its summer to blame as well because lots of people are in funks. I'm only posting, honestly, because I actually have things to post. Are people reading, who knows, but it is what it is!

  6. I understand!! I went through this earlier this year and last. I think what I do is join up new link ups just to get something fun going on (like Confessions, Currently posts, etc.) and I am still documenting my 101 in 1001 Things list, so that takes up space on mine but for a while I felt like that's all I did. I have some fun things coming up that I'll blog about, but usually if I'm in a funk I do some link ups to do something new :)
