Anyone seen my Mojo?
It’s been quite a while since I last wrote a post for my blog. In that time, Master C has ticked through two more months and is 6 weeks shy of his first birthday. Miss E and I have both had our birthdays and Nick’s is just around the corner. It’s that time of year (AGAIN!!!!) when we’re on the downward spiral toward Christmas and summer holidays. Master C is very quickly becoming a toddler and is weeks away from walking unaided.
I have felt very uninspired over the last few months. I have regularly checked in with my blog and attempted to write something. Unsuccessfully! Looking at the blogs of the serial bloggers around (and there are plenty!), I feel like a pretender. Like there’s some kind of magic formula for blogging that I haven’t discovered yet. Firstly, where do all of these parent bloggers with young babies almost toddlers have the time to blog as much as they do? Trying to keep up with a 10 month old, teaching my classes, learning choreography, being there for Miss E and Nick, my friends and keeping up with my blog. It seems impossible! And sleep! When do they sleep?!? I get to the end of the day and all I want to do is put my feet up, with a cup of tea and watch a bit of TV. I’m drained, no inclination to write let alone think! I don’t get a moment to pee on my own let alone sit down and write a blog post without the little monster crawling up my leg. Where do these other parent bloggers find the time???
I am also amazed at the amount of posts these bloggers are churning out. If anything will make you feel inadequate, this will! Maybe I’m over thinking it, or perhaps I lead a VERY boring life…. whatever the answer is I don’t seem to have that much to say. I think part of the problem is I’m trying to think about my audience and write specifically for them. The trouble with that is you have too many variables. So many different people to write for! I often make the mistake of starting a post only to decide part way through that no one will want to read it and then delete what I’ve written. How do you decide what to write and keep it interesting? Maybe I’m just boring?
I suppose it’s appropriate to say that I’m still here, muddling my way through. Trying to keep it real and honest. I shall continue to do some soul searching and perhaps I’ll find my mojo. The prospect of having a successful blog is very daunting! All I can do is take it one day at a time. I want my blog to succeed and perhaps my inability to write is my way of making sure I can’t fail? If I don’t write anything, no-one can say they don’t like it and it will just kind of fizzle out without really getting off the ground. The perfect way to avoid failure right! I am also perfectly aware that this will lead to never achieving anything.
So, one day at a time it is. I shall keep looking for my mojo. May it return soon!
