When I started blogging I posted 7 days a week and ran it like a business. I'd read the how to's of growing a blog and making money on them, but I never wrote like it was a business. I mean I was talking about my dogs. The loves of my life besides my husband. The creatures that saved my life over and over again and still to this day never stop teaching me about unconditional love.
It didn't take long to get tired and I cut out the weekends because they were always so busy and hectic and it became impossible to get to the computer anyways. I still enjoyed writing and posting and your comments.
After my hospital stay almost 2 years ago, I cut back to 3-4 days a week. I was going through a difficult healing process and it was all I could maintain. Still for the love of writing and the dogs. Until I started getting writer's block that kept reoccurring. Over and over I kept running into this wall and my love for writing began to dwindle. It took away the one thing I loved as much as the dogs and that was writing about the dogs. How could this be? After deciding to give up the money making bit, taking a break from doing reviews and running ads I am struggling to write a post.
It doesn't take much for me to pressure myself. I've always been hard core when it comes to writing. And I've never wrote on a regular basis like this. We are coming up on 4 years of blogging in a couple of months. And after the waves of creativity have crash, I've hit that wall again.
How do you juggle life and blogging? How do handle your own internal pressures? Are you able to go with the flow and blog when you feel? Or do you keep a schedule? What do you do when you hit writer's block? Do you get it often? Or just once in a while? I really like to hear your thoughts.
