When I sat down to write this post, I had my content and pictures already picked out and ready to go. But after writing and deleting, then writing and deleting, then writing and deleting some more, I realized that I didn’t want to be doing it.
We all have those days — especially as creatives. Sometimes the words coming flowing out of me and onto my phone’s note section, my blog journal, or any scrap of paper that I can find. Other times I’m bribing myself with Netflix time after I finish a post or sitting for an hour just trying to get the right paragraph.
Today was one of those latter days. Nothing was coming out how I wanted it, and I felt a funk. So, being the creative that I am, I decided to write this post instead. Because I think one of the most important parts of blogging is keeping it real. To me, the secret to successful blogging is knowing when to post and when it’s not meant to be.
Now, I know that this post won’t get as many likes or views as the ones where I’m wearing adorable outfits or showing off must-have makeup, but it’s just as important to me to keep it real around here. Not every day is your day, and that’s okay! And, most importantly, you’re not alone in feeling that way. My blog might look like I have it together most of the time, but I’m facing my own problems all at the same time.
To me, what makes a great blogger is being able to keep it real. So here I am, with a post about not wanting to blog, because that’s how I’m feeling right now. I’m feeling stuck, and tired, and like I rather go put on my pajamas and wash my face than take cute pictures. That’s exactly what I’m going to do too.
Can anyone else relate to this feeling? I know I can’t possibly be alone on this. Being creative is hard, which is what makes it even more exciting to celebrate when you come up with a great post or photo. But sometimes you have to admit to yourself that the day has won, and you can conquer it tomorrow.
Now excuse me while I go put on my cheetah print pajamas pants and jump into bed early.
