losing motivation

I haven't been motivated to post much lately. This is the same problem I had last year, which is why I stopped blogging in mid-September. Stuff happens at work that I wanna write about, but by the time I get home, cook dinner, eat, and clean up, I'm too tired to type about my day. And quite frankly, reliving a particularly rough day can be annoying. I like to try to leave my work problems at work so that my time at home is relaxing. (Easier said than done, I know...)

It's a toss-up. Writing about the things that happen at work is very therapeutic. Blogging gives me an outlet to air my grievances or ask for advice. But part of me feels like I'm the only one who reads this, so it seems like a waste of time to go through the trouble of posting it online, when I could be writing it down in a journal, or better yet, calling a friend to talk about it (which has the added benefit of getting immediate feedback). I dunno. I don't think I'm ready to give up on blogging yet. I just need to find time to actually sit down and do it.

I know exactly how you feel. Don't quit blogging though. Just blog when you feel like it!

I really enjoy your posts. You're definitely not the only one who reads them. Like Ms. ABCmom said-just post when you feel like it and know we're out here reading!

I read your blog too. Don't feel guilty about posting only once in a while. When you get the urge, write. When you don't, don't.
