Nothing to say

Nothing to say

I never thought it would happen…but it has. Fifteen months after starting my blog I have lost my blogging mojo!

I was feeling so positive starting a new year and had all these grand ideas of what I hoped to achieve with my blog but, only 2 weeks into the year, I have lost all my motivation.

I sit down to write a post and for some reason the words don’t come easy – my mind has gone blank. I don’t know what to write about. Maybe it is because I have just had a new baby and my mind is in a fog. I feel like I can’t see beyond the sleepless nights and endless washing. Maybe it is because when Alfie is finally sleeping all I want to do is talk to my husband or simply have a minute to rest. When awake I just want to hold him and marvel at how amazing he is. Who knows what the reason is but for the first time ever I don’t really have any desire to write.

I also feel like I need and I am ready to take my blog to the next level.  That is definitely what I want for memeandharri but I honestly don’t know where to start or what to do – I just feel at a loss. I am hoping I get my inspiration back soon, I don’t want my lovely blog to wilt and to fall apart. I want to write, I want to feel inspired and I want to thrive.

But, for the moment, I have a lack of time, a lack of direction and, more importantly, a lack of words.

  1. I think we all get like this! I struggle now with the fact that all 3 are at school and we aren’t doing as many activities at the weekends, that I don’t have as much to write about sometimes. It will come back!! After over 18 months I also feel I need to step up my game. Gorgeous baby you have by the way! Congratulations x Sarah #SharingTheBlogLove

  2. That’s tough. I’ve only been blogging for less than 18 months but sometimes wish it was more… and sometimes less. In a way it’s nice that you are enjoying your child so much you are getting less time to write. I hope you manage to work out a balance that feels right (write?) for you. xxx #abloggingoodtime

  3. Oh don’t worry, this happens to me all the time. Sometimes I write a short story on my blog when I can’t think what to write, it’s sometimes easier to write fiction. I haven’t blogged much the past couple of weeks either. I’m trying to do less posts but do a better job of them. Something will come up to motivate you but for now don’t worry about it, just enjoy the time with your children and your baby.

  4. I know what you mean. I was all geared up to do far more with my blog but I’m struggling to find the words. It’ll come back! My mojo went for most of last year, but it’s slowly reigniting. A break is as good as a rest, they say. There’s no sense stressing yourself to do it if your heart isn’t in it – it wont be genuine. I started writing for the sake of writing and my posts were pathetic, and most have been deleted now! I hope it’s a short lived block! #ablogginggoodtime

  5. Take a break, enjoy your beautiful baby. It will still be here waiting for you (as will we). As soon as you take the pressure off I bet you’re inspired to write again 🙂

  6. I remember earlier last year when I started my blog just before giving birth to my son. I thought I’d have plenty of time on my hands (yeah right, with a toddler as well???) so I did quite a few posts. And then nothing. For months. I was sleep deprived and had no time to myself, day or night. Give yourself the time you need and come back when you’re feeling ready. If you DO want to keep going in these early baby days, how about focusing on the little things about your baby? Observing the little creases in the tiny toes. How those little arms are lying above that gorgeous little head. How it feels when they fall asleep on you. This post in itself is perfect. You’ve said exactly how you feel, and we can all relate to that. Just keep on writing. It’s in your blood! And congratulations on your beautiful spangly new baby! #sharingthebloglove

  7. Awww if you feel like that’s what you want to do after a crazy day then that’s what you should do! blogging can wait either in a few weeks time or a few months time, whenever you feel “ready” I’m sure the words will flow. Just enjoy your new baby, and note all the things you want to write about when your back and raring to go.

  8. I think it’s perfectly understandable that you can’t find the motivation to write – there’s no way I could have done with the newborn fog. Your blog and your readers will absolutely still be here when the motivation returns, give yourself a break and just write when you want to write. Thanks for joining us again at #SharingtheBlogLove

  9. It’s totally understandable that you feel this way. Enjoy getting to know your little bundle of loveliness. The blog will still be here. #SharingtheBlogLove

  10. Don’t be too hard on yourself lovely. I think the start of a new year does give everyone that initial spring in their step. But, it doesn’t last forever. You enjoy this time with Alfie and hold him tight. It doesn’t last long and your blog will still be here. Thank you for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove x
