Recently I’ve lost my blogging mojo. I can’t exactly pin it down to one specific moment but after a series of unfortunate events in my personal life, I’ve been left feeling uninspired. It’s not that I don’t have ideas, I have a few scribbled down in my journal. It’s not that I don’t see what other people are doing and want to talk about, share or promote that. To be honest, I think it’s a lack of faith in myself.
I don’t want this post to come across as some kind of pity party or an excuse as to the lack of content. It’s just that somewhere between my brain and the screen, things aren’t co-operating. I watch all my favourite Youtubers with their cool set ups and their creative ideas. I scroll through Bloglovin and read some fantastic posts filled with honest opinions. I check my social media and see some great art, be it illustration or photography. You guys are all amazing and I love seeing what you put out.
But that’s just it. I don’t love what I’m putting out. There are a few posts here and there that I would say I like but none that I’m really proud of. And that’s sad.
But… it’s not all doom and gloom. I’m planning a rebrand real soon and moving over to a new domain. It will still be my content but it will be injected with a bit of confidence and a new look. This site was only ever a hobby, a space to rant about feminism and talk about being a curvy, queer, alternative girl… Now I have readers and that’s great! But I owe you guys more. The new site means bigger, bolder, braver content – no more hovering in my drafts, no more photos sat on my memory card. I’m gonna post the thing.
Have you ever been in a creative rut? What helped you to get out of it?
