I feel like I’m always ignoring my blog lately and I’m not happy about that. Not happy at all. And it’s not that I’ve fallen out of love with blogging or don’t want to blog, it’s just because I can’t seem to make time to do it the way I want to do it. I did deliberately take a little break as my exercise habits had broken down a little and I wanted to correct that (which I have done, I’m back with a vengeance!). But now I am trying to get my blogging house back in order.
If you have commented here, please know I’ve read and appreciated your comment, I am just ridiculously far behind in my reply comments. And when I do open the computer to blog, I usually have only about 45 minutes to devote to blogging. Then I waste time by panicking about all the things I have to do. Comment back, write a review, schedule a post, etc. And so I end up doing not very much of anything.
But lately I’ve been thinking about how much I love blogging, about why I started in the first place and how much I’m missing it. So I am aiming to do better. I’ll hack out some more time from my schedule from somewhere as it’s my thing and I miss it. Of course I’ve been reading loads and I feel like I’m missing out a crucial step in my enjoyment and completion of a book by not coming on here afterwards to fully express just how good or bad it made me feel.
I am feeling inspired at the moment and want to get back to doing posts that I love like Green Giants, The Sunday Post, discussions about bookish things that have been on my mind and I also want to update you all on Trish Transforms (my long running weight loss journey but it’s all good!). I want to tell you all about my new hobby of making pocket letters, about how I’ve become addicted to paper crafting and how snapchat is improving my life in so many ways. I want to tell you much I am enjoying my Spring walks and how good getting lots of fresh air is making me feel.
I want to tell you about how I’ve been organising my book room. Slowly! But still, I’m making progress. By the end of this year I am determined to have a fully functional room that I can use for blogging, reading and of course for storing my books.
I want to tell you all that I got new Hogwarts pyjamas. Because lets face it, no one else in my life appreciates how awesome this is and I know I can count on you to get it! I only realised when I got home that they are Gryffindor and I’m a Hufflepuff but in true Hufflepuff style I don’t get stressed by this. We are all about acceptance!
Oh and of course I want to share the love for some great books I’ve read lately. So if you are still here, thanks for sticking around and I promise to up my game a bit!
Talk to Trish: How do you find time to blog, do you get overwhelmed and how do you cope with that?
