“Plus you have an amazing blog.” She said to me. 

Mentally I winced but replied, “Oh, thank you! I do love my blog.” (Wincing again – knowing full well that I’m terrible at blogging lately.) Here I am, just a little nobody blogger that has readers that like my blog. It’s insane. It blows me away every single time. I’m not used to people reading my blog and then telling me about it… it’s humbling.

About three things I am absolutely positive. 

First, Edward was a vampire. …. Wait, no, that’s not where this is going. Awkward.

Second, I do actually love my blog. 

Third, I sit down to write and I literally have no idea where to go from there. 

Seriously, I love blogging. I love and adore writing. It’s my first passion. I’ve said that a thousand times. I adore writing and reading. I actually had someone come up to me the other day and ask me if I was a writer – that’s a story for another blog entirely – but it showed me that I obviously come off as a writer, I just need to buckle down and write. I need to find my passion for writing again. 

Let’s expand on that last one, shall we? I have plenty of things to write about. I mean, my parent just got three kids. That right there deserves a blog in and of it’s self. I’m just not sure where to start these days. My blog started out a lot more video game intensive and very little personal stuff. I’m not so sure that fits me any more. So I feel guilty and I don’t write anything because I feel like it’s not what you guys want to read. I want to stay true to myself but still write about things that you find enjoyable. Because a blog is nothing without it’s readers. So time for the big question – If I were to write about anything, what would it be? What are you favorite types of posts from my blog? What brings you back to my blog and what do you want to see more of? Is there something you don’t like? (aside from my lack of posting. ) Seriously, tell me in the comments because I am in desperate need of inspiration of where to take this blog and what my readers would like me to do with it.

  1. I like TILT, I like when you do unboxings, I like when you talk about yourself and your family and adventures. I think that bloggers sometimes overthink the whole process. I will say as a reader (of very few blogs but I am super loyal to the ones I like same for youtube stuff) the thing that will turn me off most about a blog is a lack of posting without any notice. I honestly hadn’t looked at your blog for months bc I kept looking and it would just be the wine jelly post. But now I see you are back at it and I am excited to hopefully get to follow you again. Typically once I give up on someone I will forget about them altogether but Kimi keeps you on her page and I thought I wanna check that Nerdy Fox girl out again see if shes back at it or not and you had like 4 new posts I was so excited. I enjoy your blog and hope that you find what makes you happy about it again.

  2. I feel this way a lot lately, so I totally get it. I’m at this weird place where I’m not even sure what my blog is about any more. I thought I would be constantly updating stuff about the house and home decor and honestly? I’m all LOL NOPE right now about it. Just trying to keep everyone updated about the house and painting it burnt me out. It’s not me.

    I’d really love to see more about your personal life. I feel like we don’t get to know you and what’s going on with you personally around here and as your future BFF (This is still happening. You aren’t off the hook), I think everyone should get to know you! <3

  3. I echo everything you said in this post. I struggle with the same thing! It’s so hard to know what to tell people, to know what to write, and to *actually write*–even if you love it. But you’re awesome, and you’ll figure out what you want with this site, you just have to play around a bit and see what fits best for you.

  4. I personally love blogs that incorporate personal stuff. I definitely prefer that to only reviews and/or blogs that feel like commercials. Adding in a personal touch to whatever you’re writing about is always something I look for in a new blog!

  5. Well I can’t speak to your previous posts as I’m a new reader, but I just had to say I read your 1. in KStew’s voice without even thinking. Thanks for the Tuesday morning laugh!
