frumpy mommy's slump

Tuesday, December 30, 2014

Alright, I need to just put this out there: I've been in a slump. More specifically, a blogging slump.

This 'slump' will come as no surprise if you're a regular reader (which, if you've continued to read even during this 'slump' then I REALLY love you :) If you're not a regular, don't worry, you likely haven't missed much lately.


I started this blog with high hopes and ambitions. Then life happened. Mini-me decided sleep was for the birds and our family's collective health seemed to simultaneously took a nosedive. The content in my blog followed suit.

It's not like I was previously writing award-winning material, let's be serious, but still, I had more time and energy and I REALLY loved blogging. It was my outlet.

What happened when things got crazy was that this place became a chore. I was trying so hard just to do the bare minimum. It felt shitty but it felt better than doing nothing.

Thankfully, some linkups kept me somewhat motivated, or at least contributing once a week... BUT I know I haven't been writing about what I want to write about. I haven't been writing what I'm passionate about. Part of the reason for this is really that there is only so many times I can complain about lack of sleep and feeling like crap before people become disinterested. Although, in hindsight, I've been doing that anyways, haven't I?! Oops.



Alright, where am I going with this? I don't know. I just want to put it out there, that whole transparency thing.

Also, (and I really hope I'm not jinxing anything here because so help me, I do still really NEED sleep) mini-has likened to sleeping again (if only this would last) so my energy levels are up a little. I'm also hoping that sickness is done with us for now (ya, right, I know).

Here's where I make promises. Except, I'm not offering anything grandiose. I can't commit to writing 3 times a week, because shit life happens and that's just the way it goes. What I will tell you, is what I'd like to do and that is write with more passion and creativity. Sure, I love fashion and clothes, but I've just been posting pics not providing much narrative or insight. BORING. So I'll still write about whatever I feel like and whenever I feel like it, I'll just try and be more intentional about it. K?

Lastly, THANK YOU, for sticking around... the best is yet to come my friends:)

  2. I've said it before, but I'm so impressed that you even have a blog when you have a little one and a job. I was happy if I got a shower and maybe a load of laundry done when I was in your shoes. So don't you even worry. I for one will be here whenever/whatever you write, because I love your blog and I'm so glad we've become friends!

  3. Blogging has been SO hard for me in December with my mom getting in a car accident and now we are going on over 3 weeks of sickness in my household... plus, all the hecticness that December brings on its own. So, I totally get you. Totally. I enjoy any post you have time to write! It is always fun hearing about whats new with you.
