From The Heart…

I have been rather quiet of late, posting very few and little. To be honest I am trying to figure out where I am going with the blog and actually who I am entertaining with my words.

I feel like I am stuck in a rut, and I am continuously doing the same thing.

This blog is my space, and I really do love what I do. Keeping moment’s of my children lives and what they do and say, but sometimes its hard to express that.

The last few weeks have been pretty busy, Moo’s 5th birthday and now we all seem to have the dreaded winter cold that me or the children cannot shift.

I am slowly beginning to realise that blogging is harder than it looks and you really do have to keep on top of it. Ive slacked and now its a struggle to “get back on the horse” as such.

Deep down I have come to realise I do care what people think of my little space and who is, if any are actually reading my posts. It shouldn’t really matter.

Hopefully, I will get “back on the horse” and continue as I was, but I need that little push, the niggling in the back of my brain to stop telling me I can’t do it, as I know I can..

    I’m reading!! I know what you mean about having to find your true motivation – for me it’s the writing and recording our family life and even the occasional bit of crafting. It all takes time and effort and in my case it comes at the expense of some of my knitting time, but it’s about finding the balance that works for you and who cares what anyone else’s doing!

      Thank you! I think as you said its all about time, Ive just been thinking lately where I actually fit in the blogging world I guess, I am sure it will pass soon enough!

      Thank you, I always have that thing in the back of my head, saying “are you really that good to blog” I just need to change that thing and think yes I am.. I also need to make time out and blog so I am not rushing around getting posts together!

        I can definitely say yes you are good enough! For what it’s worth I found I got my balance a bit better when I write in the evening to post the next morning, that way if I want or need to do something else first I can write later, write the next morning, or write another time without feeling that I should be doing xyz

      Thank you! Definitely hard work, trying to fit it all in whilst parenting is like a part time job! 😉

    I read!! I know what you mean though. Last summer, I stopped for two months and it was very difficult to get started again. But I enjoy the writing, the interaction, and also the tons and tons of advice that I get from people in similar situations. I’m glad I carried on but I still have some moments when I wonder what on earth I’m doing and why. I’m thinking of taking it really easy in January to rethink as well.

      Thank you, It really is hard to balance when you have children. I don’t know how tees top ranking blogs do it! I love blogging but sometimes I just step back to gather sight of things.. I am sure this blip won’t last!
