Coming to a (blogging) crossroads…
When it comes to blogging about makeup, I’ve discovered I’ve come to a crossroads. The last few weeks, I have been super busy at home and at work and the blog once again has fallen by the wayside. It’s weird cause in the past no matter how busy I was, I found time to blog. But lately, I’m just not feeling it.
I’ve been blogging for more than three years and am starting to think I’m running out of steam. Or maybe I need to revamp my whole approach to blogging and find a renewed sense of purpose. I love interacting with people on the site, and am always so thankful that people are still reading. I wish I could find my blogging voice again.
Part of it is I’m feeling overwhelmed by the volume of products in my house. I literally need a team to get everything done that needs to be done for the blog. I realize I cannot even try to keep up with the countless collections or changes of season for makeup, and my skin can only test out so many products at a time.
And lately rather than taking action, I’ve been in limbo. Product review limbo.
Don’t get me wrong. My love of makeup is alive and well. But it’s not at the forefront all the time anymore. I have other interests that are now equally taking up headspace. I have also much preferred reading blogs (all types of blogs) than writing.
Stuck in rut? Yes. Bored? Maybe a little. Busy? Always. A phase? Possibly.
Any bloggers out there feeling overwhelmed by products and underwhelmed by blogging?
