Now first of all I need to say that there are absolutely loads of fabulous benefits of blogging and being a blogger; you meet some lovely people, get the chance to try out new products & experiences, and get the scoop before others.
But for most of us there comes a time when it can all get a bit much and we burn out. This is something I've been experiencing over the last couple of weeks and it's been driving me crazy! I've literally sat at the computer for hours, staring at the screen, knowing I should be writing but not knowing what to write or even being able to find the energy to try. I've got ready to take photos only to wonder "why bother?". I've left e-mails unanswered, mail unopened, phone calls unreturned and basically been the least productive person around.
Of course this has all been made a whole lot worse today when I was struck down by illness. Looking at the current British weather it's hardly surprising! It's freezing, raining and generally pretty gloomy. It's supposed to be August not November! So I'm now not only suffering from a lack of creativity, drive and can-do attitude, I now have a cold to boot.
I've forced myself to write this post in the hope that it will kick drive my writing again, and get me ready to bring you guys some more posts. Here's hoping it works, I miss you lovely lot!
So the next time you look at a blogger's instagram and think "wow their life is perfect" remember that while there are some fabulous benefits of blogging, there are some downsides and gloomy days as well!
Stay safe, and warm! x
