Bloggers Block

raining cake blog

Lately, blogging hasn’t really been doing it for me. I feel detached from it all, I feel that my content isn’t good enough, not creative enough and not “in” enough. It’s such a fast-paced industry that I often struggle to keep up, although I do give it my best shot at all times. I guess this is the the first time I am experiencing what all bloggers know as “bloggers block”. Whereby you just have nothing to produce and even when you do, it’s not something you enjoy reading yourself. The question for me now is, shall I take a break? And trust me, I am not one for breaks, I barely ever take them (apart from my lunch break), I have FOMO. But I know of a few bloggers who have taken breaks and have come back so much more revitalised and energised and ready to take on the world. Maybe it is what I need at this point in life, maybe I just need to slow down and stop worrying about whether I have a post ready for the day or not and just produce quality content rather than quantity. Let’s go with that shall we? Catch you on the flip side!

    You'll be surprised how much a break can help! Even if it's for a week or 2. Everyone will be here when you get back 🙂

    Do what's best for you. I often worry that my content isn't good enough, that I'm not blogging and buying the newest and most expensive coveted things, but every blogger is different. I like your content, but take a break if you feel you need one. x

    In the past when i've had a bit of a block i've either taken a break or taken a step back. Blogging should be something to be enjoy, not something to cause stress. It's hard not to compare yourself to others, but once you stop it makes it a lot more enjoyable again.

      I definitely feel taking a step back will help me think of new ideas and come back better than before, thank you for reading lovely. xx

    I experienced blogger's block for the first time last year and its such a rubbish feeling, especially when you usually love your blog. I didn't actually take a break, just didn't put pressure on myself to make sure there was a new post every day and then my passion for blogging just came back randomly. Take as long as you need -though your content is great, if you want to take a break just do it! Looking forward to your return!

    If you feel a break is best, nobody's going to say anything about it although you will be missed 🙂 I hope you come back ready to blog again, as I thoroughly enjoy your posts 🙂 x

    Sometimes it's good to take a step back and stop putting pressure on yourself – if you want to take some time out then go for it! Your blog is absolutely lovely, so I'm looking forward to your return 🙂 xx

    I would miss you! 😉
