A Struggling Blogger…

So for the past two plus weeks I have been really struggling with balancing every thing in my life. And even though I don’t want to admit it, it is becoming too much and taking it’s toll on me. I always have an underlining feeling of ‘I must prove myself to everyone and do as much as I possibly can at everything I ever do’. Working 9-5, Dance and Blogging, it amounts to a lot and a lot of pre planning and sorting out. And I think posting 3x a week is partly to blame for this. I have been working hard to up the quality and presence of my blog but I have found myself almost obsessing about getting blog posts up, taking good pictures and making the best blogs I possibly can whilst also trying to interact on twitter, Instagram and working out Pinterest as well. It’s a lot! And it’s a lot of work. I love my blog is growing everyday but with it’s growth I have lost why i started to even write it and through all of this I have managed to make it quite intense for myself.

Because of all of this I am going to be taking a little step back. I’m going to go back to posting when I want to and because I want to and hopefully that will stop the constant stressing, comparing myself to others and obsessive pre planning my brain insists on 20hrs a day. Because I just can’t switch off. Plus I will hopefully make better blog content because of this. Part of the reason I started to blog was because it was a place I could write about my current thoughts and mental health story and now that same little blog is causing me to question my current mental state and well being. So something has to slip somewhere.

I will still be here just maybe not so many times a week! Because of this I’m hoping the quality will also be better! I know I have just planned some Collab post with some of you guys, these will still go ahead but I may be message you to rearrange some dates 🙂

Thanks,

Chloe Xx

  1. 🙂 Hi Chloe, I will begin by saying, “Stop comparing yourself to others!”

    And, never deviate from your blog’s vision (What you originally planned for your blog).

    I use to post articles daily on my blog and then I slowed down; I started posting articles weekly instead.

    Maybe, posting three times a week is way too much for you.

    Try posting once a week and see how that works out for you.

  2. This is SO relatable!! I had a family emergency this weekend, and work was nuts last week, and I’ve been beating myself up like crazy over not making posts. YOU DO YOU GIRL. The internet can wait! Sending you lots of love and good wishes and support for doing what’s best for you.

  3. You have a lot on your plate & I can empathise with the feeling of pressure and stress when it comes to blogging. It can really get under your skin, when really it should be an enjoyable thing; fretting about posting enough and everything that comes with blogging saps the fun of it, so I think that you taking a step back and deciding “to go back to posting when I want to” is a good idea. You have to do what’s right for you and we’ll all still be here and reading 🙂

  4. I have many struggles as well and I promise once you decide to just post when it is best for you instead of the blog, you want to do more. Enjoy your time and make memories. We will all be here when you get back😊 Take care 🙂

  5. I completely understand what you are saying! I have not been posting much this summer because I have been busy, then I feel bad for not posting 😬A bit of a viscous cycle. But do know, we are not judging you! This should be a fun and safe place to express yourself, when you feel like sharing.😊💕
