I’ve struggled to get a post out lately. There are so many things going on in my head and to do with my circumstances but finding a balance between what I feel I can share with my not-so-many readers, and what should remain personal and private is very difficult. There’s been a fantastic holiday with the family which I’ll definitely be writing about in due course.
Currently though I’m having a low period emotionally and can’t seem to find my happy. During times like this I question whether Pumpkinella.com should be what I always envisaged, a place for inspiration and support, or whether it should be more of a diary of my life as a form of therapy. My ambition when I started the blog was to be positive, put a position light on every situation and be an ambassador empowering other women and families through my advice and lessons learned. However over the last few days and weeks I’ve struggled with keeping that positive focus within my posts. As such I’ve published very little of what I’ve actually written.
Blogging appears to be one of those things that you need to dedicate time to, develop a style, take advice and inspiration from other bloggers, and improve on constantly. However when you work full time and the average dinner time is at 9pm, it’s a constant struggle to find the time to concentrate on it and the messages I want to convey. Also the pressures of life tend to make me feel low by the end of the day invariably meaning that posts written late at night tend not to be very happy or encouraging.
I wonder if other bloggers also struggle with balancing all their responsibilities and still publish great content.
I’ll leave you for now with this question: how far you would go with your blog? Out of the abundance of your heart do you let your words flow or do you take time to really think about the messages you’re putting out there and make sure you are a positive influence on your readers at all times?
