I Need To Write A Blog Post... But I Don't Want To (A Non-Guide)


It’s 8:52 pm. I’m sitting in the sunroom in my house, the room my mother redecorated a few days ago. There’s a chair and a lamp on a table. I am sitting in the chair, with my laptop, writing these words. And now you’re reading them. I used to say things like this on my blog when I was younger. But now I’m older, and I don’t. Now I think. Too much. So much that my mind just…

STOPS.

I am dry of creativity, suddenly. I’m empty. I need a deep breath, probably some waffles, and a good night’s sleep. But then, I also need to blog. Because I love my blog. My blog brings me intense joy (but bth it’s you. THE PEOPLE READING THIS BLOG bring me intense joy.)


First, I cry. Because I’m an emotional wreck(ing ball, very intimidating, you know.) Then I pray. Because every time I make something, I’m actually only the co-creator. God does most of it, then nudges me when I say stuff like that and is like, “pssh no she did most of it” because that’s how we roll. Third and finally, I…. WAITFORIT… THIS IS GOING TO REVOLUTIONIZE YOUR LIFE THIS LITTLE TRICK RIGHT HERE…

I take a break.

Because I’m the kind of person who doubts herself and what she makes a lot. For instance, this post: I’ve thought about not publishing this post more than I’ve thought about actually publishing it. I think about what other people will think. I think about what people like to read. I think and think and think. 


Having thoughts like this feels a bit like being caught in the eye of a storm. Like I have NO IDEA which way to go. There is nowhere to run, because in every direction there is storm, storm, storm. I lose control of my mind a lot. Maybe that’s weird. Maybe that’s normal. Maybe that’s immature. I don’t know. All I know is that when I get into these areas of complete CHAOS and mental stress, the only way out is to slooooww dowwwwwn. To take a break from blogging.

For instance, this post. It was supposed to happen yesterday morning at eight o’clock, Eastern Standard Time. That’s when I like to schedule my posts to publish. That’s my comfort zone. But I can’t always have my comfort zone. Because sometimes, better things pop up en route to my comfort zone – things that are only here and now. They are not toys I can put down and be sure of picking back up later on, when I feel like it.

I say “no” to so many things all day long – but I don’t have to say no to everything.


Yesterday, me and my sister went shopping. I spent a lot of money that wasn’t mine on pretty clothes that I could technically survive without. I got a tea and my sister got a coffee and we sat in Starbucks and ate cakepops and then we listened to music in the car and talked about books. I loved it. I felt alive and happy and in love with life.

But then that night, I was trying to write a blog post and I couldn’t. I was tired, sore, and mentally stressed about a lot of things. Eventually I heard myself mutter, “Nothing is going right for me today.”

Wait. What? WHERE DOES SOMETHING LIKE THAT COME FROM?

If we’re being real, practically EVERYTHING had gone right for me that day. I just couldn’t write a blog post. It wouldn’t happen. And that made me unhappy.

Blogging me = happy me.
Not-knowing-what-to-blog-about me = unhappy me.
Unhappy me = no waffles on planet earth. (Hard science. Don’t question.)


MY BLOG MAKES ME HAPPY. But there comes a time when I have to stop, cry, pray, slowwww dowwwwn, and take a break. Whether that break is ten minutes, ten hours, or ten weeks long, there is nothing wrong with that break. That break is healthy, it keeps me going.

When I need to write a blog post but I don’t want to, I don’t. I just don’t. Because the moment in which my blog ceases to bring me joy is the moment in which I know I’m doing something wrong. The most important thing about blogging is the people – you, RIGHT THERE, reading this post. You’re my favorite part.

I shouldn’t care about being eloquent 100% of the time. I shouldn’t care about posting on a regular schedule. I need to put things in perspective, sometimes. I’m no expert, but I always get up and try again. I cry, I pray, I eat waffles, and I try again.


I DON’T EVEN REALLY KNOW WHAT THIS POST TURNED INTO?? But I guess that’s kind of the point. What do y’all think?? How do you deal with creativity blocks/blaahhhhh? What helps you to feel better about ‘not showing up’ sometimes? Waffles? Tears? SOME FOREIGN CHOCOLATE I DON’T YET KNOW ABOUT? Disclose all.

Love,
abbiee

  1. This was good! And no waffles *gasps* I would die. A friend of mine had a birthday party a few months back and had a waffle bar ❤️ Waffles are life.

  2. I'm actually really glad you wrote this post because now I know that I'm not the only one who thinks too much. And sometimes, those thoughts can turn it my worst enemy. But I think I can relate to your situation. I needed to take a break from blogging and writing in general too, because I was under a lot of pressure in school and then stress came and everything was wrong and nothing was working out and then I was stressed because I decided to take a break from blogging which I only started months ago. What's more important is that it worked and now I have lots of ideas so hopefully your break will help you too. As you said, sometimes we need to slow down, take a deep breath and turn off our minds. :)
    Oh and my medicine for "not showing up" are books, good music and cute pictures of little owls because they're just adorable :3

  3. This is stellar!!! I totally get this. I feel it on a deep emotional level. I was committed to posting once a week on my blog, but now that the weather is warming up, there are just weeks that I don't have time to gather my thoughts. And I've got weird thing where if I skip reading for a few days, I feel guilty. Why? Idk. Does it make me read more? No, I just don't read, but feel bad about it. I'm a strange onion, I fear.

    Anyway. I really love this. Okay. Bye.

    P.S. I really want waffles.

  4. This is me right now. I know exactly where you're coming from! I didn't post this week (Tuesdays are my posting day), and I've been struggling to come up with a belated post, but I think I've finally given up on that. Now I'm just trying to stockpile ideas for later, but the problem is, I HAVE NO IDEAS. Except for Christmas posts, which is immensely unhelpful right now. :P

    Also, I keep reading about waffles on your blog and I'm developing a huge craving. But I don't have a waffle iron...

    1. OMG YOU DON'T HAVE A WAFFLE IRON SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE ABOUT THAT STAT. (and no it's not at all backwards or strange that i mention this first and foremost in my reply even though you mentioned it last in your comment...I HAVE MEH PRIORITIES STRAIGHT, SEE.)

      Ugh, I can relate SOSOSO MUCH!! (And hehe, yes, Christmas ideas are definitely not helpful atm XD) Stockpiling ideas is a great way to get over these slumps, though. I know that when I have plenty of ideas, it's SOOO much easier to write. BLOGGING IS SUCH HARD WORK OKAY. :P We all deserve so much waffles. <3

      Delete
    2. Good news: I've begun stockpiling ideas (and even drafts!). Bad news: I still don't have a waffle iron. But my birthday is coming, so THERE WILL BE CAKE. Which is, dare I say it, better than waffles. But if I had a waffle iron, I could have waffles AND cake on my birthday... hmmm...

  7. Haha I know this feeling all too well . . . I had serious "blogger block" for a while and it always comes in spurts. Maybe like three month long spurts? Now I have WAY TOO MANY IDEAS haha. I always just have to make myself post. Mainly I ask myself what posts I'd like to read. What questions I have. Then I write a post kinda for myself in a way.

It can be annoying to have such random bursts of creativity. THAT IS A REALLY GOOD WAY TO COME UP WITH BLOG POSTS THOUGH. *nods approvingly* I try to ask myself those questions to: like, "would I want to read this?" because if I'm bored with the topic, chances are, everyone else will be too.

    2. Awwww thanks Abbie!! That means the world to me. :) No joke! AW YOU GAVE ME WAFFLES YOU'RE THE BEST haha I'll bring whipped cream and brownies.
      I KNOW RIGHT?? It's easy when you're not a blogger to happen upon a blog and be like oh wow look at all these posts but when you are a blogger, every post you read you give the writer a silent thumbs up haha because YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO WRITE UNIQUE CONTENT!!
      That has seemed to work for me. Sometimes I just have to take a deep breath and a chill pill and remind myself that it always ends . . . eventually. :O

  8. I really, really loved this. I needed it. Not so much for blogging because I've actually been writing whenever I possibly can and enjoying it (although it never lasts long, haha), but with my hobbies. I am so stressed out over them because I have no inspiration or "want-to". Sometimes I beat myself up about it but over the past couple of months I've learned to realize that a good, long break is sometimes just what you need.

    Loved this. So much.

  9. AGREES INSTANTLY.

    I totally know how you feel, Abbie. Like, I get stuck in so many ruts. Even though I'm happier than I was a couple of weeks ago, there's always a lingering sense of, how much is this euphoria going to last?? Am I actually creating things that I'd like?? Do I suck at everything I do??

    We all think your blog is pretty much perfect, and the fact that you choose quality over quantity is an accomplishment in it of itself. I LOVE reading all of your blog posts, no matter how frequently you post them, and to be quite frank, I wouldn't value them as much if you did more of them.

    Keep on with it! Love ya!

      I'm also sooo happy you can relate to this -- we're all in this tough blogging adventure together, aren't we?? It gives me SO MUCH COMFORT to know that you go through some of the same torturous thought processes that I do. :') #solidarity muahah *hugs and pancakes*

  10. First off, you bring so much happiness to me, I honestly don't care how often you post. ;) Well..I take that back.. I love your posts lol but WHAT I MEAN IS - blogging ruts are REAL. It's as real as this Pancake VS Waffle war. As real as pinterest addictions.. as real as - you get the gist of it. :P

    MY POINT IS (remember it's midnight and I'm still on that allergy relief) I've learned that blogging ruts are tough and nasty and horrible, but if I press forward, I get out of that little hole, and my writing is better than ever. Well, I hope so at least. ;)

  11. I HEAR YA WITH CREATIVITY BLOCKS!! Honestly this is so me sometimes. Gah. I try to write a lot of posts when I am feeling creative so I can cover for the times when I'm not. Which, *collapses awkwardly* happens more than I like to admit. It's also hard, sometimes because of the pressure??? Like I want to write something GOOD and INTERESTING and not waste my followers' time and just be super awesome AND SOMETIMES IT's VERY HARD AND THE PRESSURE IS AKIN TO AN EXPLODING WAFFLE MAKER. *shrieks*
    So I relate. 100%
    and I also think that taking a break and stepping back is a GREAT way to handle this. Less pressure for ourselves!! More understand that creativity sometimes doesn't always happen!

  13. Taking a break is absolutely fine--sometimes you just don't have the energy/ideas/whatever to push through just yet, and that's okay. I hear you about blog post ideas; I have the hardest time thinking of things to blog about. I think taking breaks is actually essential to a lot of peoples' writing/blogging processes. You just can't stay productive 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without losing your mind.

  14. I TOTALLY GET YOU.

    I get so frustrated when I don't know what to blog about. Because I love blogging, but I don't want to publish stuff that isn't any good, and typically that's what happens when I'm running out of inspiration. But honestly, blogging breaks can help a LOT. Sometimes you just need to be refreshed and take a break. It's good for you!!!

    Don't beat yourself up, Abbie. You're like, the most productive person I know. But you don't want to be unhappy! Breaks are good for you, I promise.

    p.s. you should go eat some waffles.

  15. ABBIEEEEE THIS POST MADE ME SO HAPPY. SO GLAD YOU POSTED IT. THANK YOUS.
    where to even start. I feel like this post was probably written about me and you've probably been filming me for like the past year and probably inside my brain too like idk ?? so, so, so true that we need to take a break sometimes. when I'm feeling uninspired (often lols) it helps to clear my headddd. I should definitely pray more often. I like going on walks. Then I think (like towards God.. not necessarily praying but ya know maybe either way) or listen to music or pinterest or just get outside of myself and do something i don't normally do or do something to serve someone else or make THEM happy and that usually helps to make me happy. I should do all these things more often than I do. More often, I just feel sorry for myself or waste time or slowly let myself get to the point where I too think "nothing has gone right for me today this is the worst I'm a failure and lakdfjlsdkfjl". you feel me? thanks for this post Abbie ^-^ SO GENUINE.

  18. THANK YOU FOR WRITING THIS POST. Honestly, this is a subject that I feel that basically all bloggers can relate to at some point, and for me, I VERY MUCH RELATE. Sometimes I feel that my blog is so, i don't know, like, non-appealing? But like that's not important in a way, because as long as the content is genuine and pointing to God, that's the POINT. SO like I try to remind myself that a lot, but reading a post that another blogger writes about is like SUPAH ENCOURAGING TOO. I think right now for my blog I need to do something with the layout/design before I'm getting any more creativity. (HAH. I need creativity to redesign it in the first place. xD)

    ALSO thank you so much for replying about your camera and lens combo. (I always get mixed up. Is LENS singular and LENSE plural or is it just LENS all the time?) But yeah, I think I've figured out what to get. I really was looking into maybe the 85 mm which is sort of like the 50 mm i think? But I really wanted an all purpose lens too, and the canon website said that the 70-200 mm lens was a really good all purpose lens...SO I finally scraped together and ordered the 55-250 mm lens. AFKSKOJFFAIKFKDF OKAY YEAH SO I'M REALLY EXCITED AND GAHH I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THE NEW LENS THAT YOU'RE GOING TO GET YEAH OKAY SORRY THIS COMMENT IS SO LONG I think i just like talking about photography too much. ^_^

    THANK YOU ABBIIEEEE
    Agh, this helped SO much! I sometimes get that feeling too, and just need a reminder that a) I am ONLY the co-creator and b) I just need to take a break.
    Although, if I'm unable to take a break for some unknown foreign reason, I've learned that music also really helps. I'll listen to some peaceful stuff, like Coldplay or just anything that's slightly calm, but still got a bit of peppyness to it. It helps give me a tad bit of inspiration that I can work off.
    And even if it doesn't give inspiration, it just calms my mind, so I'm not so much like IM RIPPING MY HAIR OUT AND I WANT TO GO PUNCH SOMETHING BECAUSE I CANT THINK OF A STUPID POST TOPICCC

    But that's just me.
    It may be different for others.

    But wait,WHAA??
    No waffles?? *gasp* That would be quite tragic.

    But THISSSS. You know my thoughts already, but blogging is just tiring sometimes. Life is just tiring. And breaks are good. Especially for you -- churning out 10+ posts a month or something crazy like that. Goodness girl, your brain needs a break! *hands waffles*

    Also, you must've been unhappy on the day my sister refused to make waffles for me. Unhappy you equals no waffles, yeah? I think my sister just knew it wouldn't work out and therefore I will be patient with her and beg her another day.

  23. Wow, 50 comments...I think you did the right thing, publishing this post. :) I totally relate. I don't know if you've noticed, but I've gone like a month without posting multiple times! And a bunch of times I just don't feel like doing it, and then I feel bad, and get doubty, because this is what I want to make a living doing, and am I really up for that? I do believe I need to get more disciplined, but I also know that breaks are important.

Nice comments brighten my day x100000! I read and respond to every single one (and I also give my commenters free virtual waffles, so that's a plus.)
