It’s not very often that I sit down and write a personal post, speaking to my readers directly from the heart. You may have noticed, but things have been a bit quiet around the blog lately. I’ve strayed from my normal Monday, Wednesday, Friday posting schedule quite a few times over the last month, and a few weeks ago took an entire week off from blogging. I just needed a break.
I’ve been feeling burned out lately, both with blogging and everything else. I have a never ending list of things to work on for both the blog and the Etsy shop, and I can’t seem to find the motivation for any of them. I’m feeling really uninspired when it comes to new blog post ideas. I have a page with nearly 100 post ideas, and I just don’t want to write about any of them right now.
I still love my blog, my content, my mission, and my readers. That hasn’t changed. I’m just burnt out.
We’ve got a lot going on in our personal life as well. As I mentioned in recent posts, we’re in the process of buying a house. We’ve had our inspection and appraisal (everything has gone really well!), and we close in 57 days. It sounds like plenty of time to pack, but there’s a lot going on elsewhere. We’ve both got full-time jobs, and I’ve got the blog and Etsy shop. We’re in two weddings in June (the weekend before and the weekend after we close on our house), so many of our weekends these days are filled with pre-wedding festivities.
Having given myself time to step away from the things stressing me out, and take the break I needed from blogging, I’ll be back with normal blog posts on Wednesday! The weather is perfect today in Wisconsin, so if nothing else, that’s sure to cheer me up and bring me some energy!
I would love for you to leave me a comment and let me know what you do when you’re feeling burned out and uninspired!
