IWSG - June
So lately, I've been having trouble with blogging. The only post I've been regularly putting up is the post I put up every Friday for the Celebrate the Small Things blog hop, and I rarely visit other bloggers now. Blogging has become more of a chore than anything, which I absolutely hate because I used to love blogging so much.
Upon reflection, I think the issue is that my blog doesn't have direction; I see it as a writing blog, and that limits what I can put on it quite a lot. It's made it quite stressful trying to choose topics to blog about, so I just don't bother.
I'm not ready to give up blogging; I still love being a part of the blogging community, and taking part in writing challenges like Write Edit Publish, but on the other hand those can't be the only posts that I write.
I've decided to give my blog a thematic makeover; instead of only making it about my writing, I'm going to make it about me. There's a lot more to me than just my writing, so why should my blog only show that one aspect of myself? I have a lot of other hobbies, things that I love to do besides writing.
After all, the name of this blog is "My Baffling Brain" - it's about time I matched the contents to the heading!
