I haven't felt like blogging much lately.
I have all kinds of excuses, which just means that I'm not ready to put in the effort.
Some blog posts are easy for me. They just come naturally and quickly to the page...and those are the ones I enjoy writing.
Others take some time and thought. Even a little research to ensure that I'm not spouting off random, incorrect information off the top of my head.
And most of the time, it is hard for me to write a blog when I don't feel inspired. And I haven't felt inspired much lately, which I know is part of the season I am in.
I do have a list of blog ideas. And I keep adding to it. And I hope to cross those topics/titles off of that list as I keep adding more.
I tend to be good at starting things, but I have a harder time following through - especially when I am not feeling inspired.
But, to me, inspiration is like emotion - ever changing...depending on circumstances.
I am feeling more and more of a desire to write articles and even an ebook. And I think the consistency of writing my blog will help.
I know writers don't feel inspired all of the time. And I don't know how some writers are able to write books with little kids in the room...I can't tell you how many times I've had to close my computer and come back to an entry later due to my kids.
But again, this is a season. It will not be this way forever. Eventually my little ones will not require or demand my constant attention...but right now it does feel like this will last for a long time!
So, I will continue writing when I can, and even making time to write more.
I've been thinking of this quote a lot lately...
