Back to Blogging Basics

I spent some time yesterday crafting a post about how toddlers are assholes. It was basically just me ranting about my tremendously crappy day that resulted in me crying while my son ran off to pee on the floor. (#momlife at its best 🙄)

But I didn’t post it because it wasn’t a full article type post with a point and perfectly prepared pics. Ha! Try saying that 5 times fast.

My original blog, the anonymous one about my IVF experience, really gave me an emotional outlet. I didn’t care about stats and likes, I just shared to get it all off my chest. But things changed when I decided to do a “real blog.”

My posts became more planned out. I started thinking of them more like magazine articles. And sometimes I’m doing paid posts and it starts to feel like a homework assignment!

It’s making it all more like work and less like the emotional and creative outlet that attracted me to blogging in the first place. So while I still plan to keep that part going, I’m also going to just pop in here with no big agenda, no sponsored links and just write about life and enjoy myself.

So the blog continues to evolve… even if it is something of a step back to a simpler time. A time before I knew what an Amazon affiliate was… lol

    1. After entertaining a toddler non-stop (no nap!) from 6:30am to 8:30pm (or later) I’m not really primed to sit in front of the computer and write. I have more of a burning desire to plop down and do Nothing. Not move. Not talk. Not try to write coherent sentences.
      My next blog is actually about that. And I did compose it after he went to sleep lol. That’s the only writing time I get.

  1. I feel the same. I wrote anonymously for over a year and a half before going public last Sept. Now there’s certain things I can’t write about because I don’t want to offend people who know me and there’s so much pressure to publish with consistency. Ugh. It was stressing me out. Now I write when I feel like the way I used to before and if I feel inspired I will post 5x a week or not at all for a month. I think blogging has to be fun for you to love it and make it worth reading.
