Why I Won’t Be Blogging Every Day

I’ve decided that I won’t be blogging every day going forward. More accurately I won’t be publishing a post every day.

This change will take some getting used to because I’ve pushed myself to post daily for a few years now. But I think it’s for the better.

I’m at a point where I probably need to scale back on my habits for a few reasons. I don’t want to quit. I don’t want to burn myself out either. A part of me would also like to pursue other opportunities outside of blogging.

As much as I consider myself a blogger, I consider myself a writer first. Perhaps I need to start anew, start again. I could use a clean slate.

I’m going to take some time to figure out what I want to do with my blog and my life.

Honestly, I’m not even sure how I’ve managed to blog for as long as I have. I still hope to be blogging many years down the road.

In a way, I’ve strayed away from what I love. The act of creating something from nothing is my favourite part. The creative process is fun for me.

I enjoy writing more than just about anything. Everything else doesn’t matter that much.

I had no idea what I wanted to get out of blogging when I first started. I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Obviously, there’s so much I don’t know, a lot I haven’t an accomplished. To be fair to myself, I have learned and achieved more than I ever dreamed.

I’m realizing I’m insane for doing the same thing day in and day out, expecting different results. I guess that about sums up where I am right now. That’s how I feel not only about blogging but in regards to other areas of my life as well.

  1. You’ve always got to leave room and time for something wonderful to “fall into your lap.” I don’t think I could ever take on blogging every day, although I’v come close this summer while school is out. Good luck!

      1. My first class does not meet until August 29th, and I am soooooo ready. I have all the handouts etc. for the first two weeks, and my satchel is packed (except for the snacks that get me through a three hour class). A couple of students have contacted me by email, asking about the text and reading ahead (reading ahead? Yay!), but I can’t prepare any more until I get there and get the first writing sample (Yes! on the very first day!) to plan anything more.

  2. No worries, you have to do what’s best for you and what you think is right for your own creative journey. I’ll miss your daily dose (even though I’ve been doing terrible keeping up lately) but I’ll look forward to the next book… and your writing whenever it comes out. 😉
