I started my blog as an outlet for myself and hoped that perhaps my honesty and vulnerability would connect with other people. At the end of the day, I have no hopes of monetizing my blog because truthfully, I don’t want to in a way have the direction of my blog be dictated by who is paying me to write sponsored posts. If it happens in a truly authentic, organic way that’s amazing and if it doesn’t, I won’t be losing sleep over it.
In the 8 months I’ve been blogging I’ve been truly blown away by the opportunities that have literally dropped into my lap and humbled by the following I have gained. But sometimes that has left me feeling uninspired. I want to write from my heart but I also want to write things that people want to read, things that people connect with or are helped by. Whether that be cheap farmhouse décor or tips on financially becoming a stay at home mom…I want what I write to matter…to someone, anyone.
I also want to be consistent with how often I write but sometimes that is really hard when I feel completely uninspired…like right now. I don’t want anything to ever come across forced or inauthentic but I also don’t want to leave this little place of the internet with radio silence.
Lately it has felt like there has been so much going on that I can’t even think straight let alone put my thoughts into words. I know I can’t be the only person that deals with this struggle between forced content and true, genuine, raw content. So please help me.
If you’ve dealt with this before, how did you get passed it? If you are a loyal reader, tell me what posts of mine you like the best? If you are new to my blog but an avid blog reader/YouTube watcher, what is your favorite type of content?
Please leave a comment below and help me feel inspired again! 🙂
