Blogging Anxieties {The Ordinary Moments}

I have decided to take a twist on the Ordinary Moments link up this week, I normally use this little section to blog about Moo and H but this week I decided to blog about something different.. Blogging Anxieties..

I always worry about what I blog about, I have been burned a few times with posts and its bitten me on the bum, but I blog from the heart and its what I feel ties in with the blog. Its honest and true.

You could say I am self conscious about how I come across, I worry about how I portray things and also worry that its not to everyones taste. I worry about how people read my posts and I worry what people are thinking, I shouldn’t because half the people that read this blog I don’t know.. Hardly anybody knows I blog, in a way its how I want it to stay but if people close to me find out so be it, its part of me and its just one of those things.

But then I think, what the hell, its something I enjoy and its something I look forward to doing. Its my space, its my little corner of the internet that belongs to me. I shouldn’t have to worry about what others think. I shouldn’t be made to feel like its silly to blog?

Ive recently taken a bit of a mini break {just a week but sometimes its only that you need} mainly because of the above reasons.. I have been ready to type, but I then think, will it come across ok? You could call it writers block but I call it blogging anxiety, and its become quite an ordinary moment of late.

I started this blog as a document of both Moo and H’s first few years, I was pretty private and didn’t display photos, mentioned names and so on.. I have slowly started to add photos and the only name that is ever mentioned is my own. I wouldn’t want to plaster something so personal over posts. I didn’t expect to actually continue with it and be here 6 years later, still typing. I actually really enjoy it, I find great pleasure in finding other blogs to read and joining in with link ups, just like this one. I have had a few opportunities too, which have been amazing to be a part of.

I know this is a little blip and I know that I will continue to carry on blogging. I just wish I didn’t have these anxieties, the anxiety of feeling worthless and rubbish at what I do..

I am linking up with the lovely Katie at Mummy Daddy Me for her wonderful linky The Ordinary Moments

  • Oh lovely, I think we all have moments like this and having a break (as you did) helps to become a bit more decisive about what you want to do or write. After about 18 months I have started only now not really caring what anyone else thinks of my writing or my blog, it’s for me primarily and anything above that is a bonus xxx

  • It’s easier to say don’t worry than it actually is to do I know, but try not to worry and keep writing from the heart. I write for me and for my family with my caveat that I never write anything that I wouldn’t want my boss or my mother to see and that tends to keep it in line!

  • It’s so hard sometimes to not feel anxious and self-conscious about what we write, after all, we all really put ourselves out there. Like Carie says, I try not to write anything that I think would put off a potential employer, that would upset close family, or that my children would feel embarrassed about when they are older and of school age. Otherwise, anything goes! It’s funny you wrote this, as I wrote a post during the week about 10 Ways to Gain Confidence Blogging – it’s only been recently that I’ve felt confident in my own blogging skin and I wrote about things that have helped me get to that point.

  • Just write what you want to write. As long as you are the same in life as you are in the pages of your blog then nothing can really go wrong – and if people don’t like what you write then they aren’t the right people to be reading. We all have wobbles now and again though I do think that’s natural x

  • It is hard and I am the same from time to time- I go through phases where I want to completely delete my blog for one reason or another. I think after four years I have definitely got to the stage where I just write about what I want to write about- I don’t post loads and I don’t know if my content is particularly interesting to other people as it’s just a family diary. But I just do it regardless.
    Anytime you want to chat all things bloggy if you are having a wobble do DM me or something! 🙂 xx

  • aaah I just wrote a long comment that didn’t save! I go through wobbles all the time, I can honestly say at least once a month I think I should stop blogging for various reasons. I never do but I do think it. I used to worry that my content was mainly just a family diary and then not interesting compared to some of the blogs I read- but I just try and write for me nowadays- it’s hard sometimes though cause my blog will therefore never be one that gets millions of hits or anything! xx
