My Struggles As a Blogger
I know that last week, I protested "I'm back" and that was my intention, to post for the entire week. But I only made it through Monday. The remainder of the week went empty here on Style Fragment. Don't take it this post the wrong way but sometimes I just can't. Let me explain.
1. I feel creative/writer's block.
Every Sunday, I set intentions for the week, I even write them in my planner. I write down who I'm meeting, calling and emailing. When it comes to my full time real estate career, I complete 90-100% of my intentions (i.e. tasks). However, when it comes to this blog, I struggle some weeks. I have not a creative thought that comes to mind. And truthfully, I don't want to bore you. I want to give you informative, fun, fashionable, and creative things to view and read. So, when I'm lacking creativity, I opt not write, I choose not to post, which brings me to this. Are there any topics you would like for me to cover? What posts have you enjoyed the most? Would you like more of that?
2. Growth, or lack thereof.
I struggle with this constantly. I have been blogging for 10 years and I feel like my blog has not exactly grown to the extent I would like. I see other bloggers who started well after I did and their readership is too infinite and beyond (insert Buzz Lightyear voice). I know, I know, I shouldn't compare myself to others but let's be real its hard to understand how someone who has been blogging for like one year has come in and surpassed you, especially when their blog posts follow the style of the masses. Anyway, Help! What should I do? How can this little blog be better? Any ideas?
3. I'm just too damn tired.
Now, this is a bit of an excuse. But at least it's the truth. Most days, a la Monday through Friday I wake up at 4:45 am, and head to the office for 7am. I get straight to work, and usually don't quit until 4pm, sometimes even later. Then I head over to cycling or yoga. Once I've completed my sweat dripping class, I head home to walk and play with Kospi, shower, eat dinner and do a few home tasks, it is now 9pm or so, i.e. bedtime. And I'm just too damn tired to crack the computer open and get to blogging. Please forgive me.
Again, I want to give you a place to go for fun reads and views with a hint of sarcasm. I also want you to know that I appreciate you and loyalty (hanging in there when I'm uncreative and too damn tired).
