I have to say, I do believe I am suffering from blogger burnout. I used to be a regular poster, commenter, and tweeter. Now, I have barely even logged on to blogger in the last month.
Part of my problem is that I am having a hard time maintaining balance in my life. That was my New Year's Resolution, remember? Balance. Flexibility. I am achieving neither of those.
I think I got overwhelmed by the whole blogging game. The numbers. Followers. Stats. Analytics. That isn't why I started blogging. I started writing as an outlet for my thoughts and feelings. I needed a forum to connect with others and to have them connect with me.
I need to get back to basics. I am rethinking the purpose of this blog. Blogging became a bit of job for me. That is where the problem is. Blogging is not a job. It is not very likely to make me any significant amount of money. Blogging is a hobby. My job? My job is being a Mom. Raising the children that I brought into this world with my husband. That is and will always be my most important vocation. Cultivating Rosebuds.
So that is where I am going with this. I am going to try to get back to posting....but I am going to limit it to once a week (probably Thursdays). Those of you who used to follow me? I hope you are still there and will join me once a week. I am going to start trying to read and comment on blogs again as well. I just haven't figured out where that will fit yet.
Thanks for sticking with me. I have missed you all!
