Today I am going to be talking about something that has been bothering me recently – blogging guilt. If you are a blogger yourself you might be familiar with this. I like to define it as:
Blogging Guilt: the sense of stress when you haven’t posted on your blog for a while and/or the feeling that your content just isn’t good enough.
Now, the reason why I’ve been feeling guilty about my blog is a bit ridiculous in itself. I haven’t put up a post since last Friday. Not even a week ago. But, in my defence, I have been in the habit of putting up 2-3 posts a week recently. I had planned all my posts in advance and felt like I was getting into a really good routine of integrating blogging with the rest of my life.
However, over the past week or so I’ve been feeling a bit distant from blogging. I have a lot going on with uni at the moment, which is taking up a lot of my time. The work is quite tedious, which is having a knock on effect on my creativity and just motivation in general.
I’m in this phase where I’m panicking because I haven’t put up a post for a while, but when I go to write I am struggling. I start doubting what I’m doing, or I don’t like the way the photos have turned out.. So I just leave it. Then comes the guilt for missing my blogging ‘schedule’…
