I think this is the first time ever I did not make a post for over a week. Well, 8 days, but who’s counting?
You’re probably thinking that my hectic schedule at the moment is the reason for my lack of blogging activity. I don’t think this is true because I manage about 3 hours of Internet activities daily still. I play my usual games on Facebook, do a bit of Twitter, read all the blog feeds I subscribe to… no reason not to blog, really, since I’m online a lot though not as much as before.
Just now on the way to work, I was listening to something on the radio about how love at the beginning is exciting and passionate, but after it gets routine you don’t feel the excitement even if you still love the person.
I think that’s what’s happening with me and blogging. I love to blog but I’ve somehow lost the excitement. Add tiredness, lack of time and lack of interesting ideas to blog about to the mix and you get sulz’s first ever mini blogging break.
The desire to blog lately has not been there. I noticed that most of my posts these days have been about my work situation and I want to deviate from all that. I know I’m not just all about my work. Yet, when I think of something I want to talk about, work is all that seems to come to my mind. (By the way, things at work is a bit different… See what I mean about wanting to talking about work all the time??!)
How do you reignite the fire? How do you rediscover your passion for blogging?
I read an interview with an author somewhere and he said that when he has writer’s block, he will stop writing and just read and read and read until he is ready to write again. Maybe this is my blogger’s block telling me I’m not reading enough to my liking!
