Feeling Frustrated

Feeling Frustrated

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]t’s 11pm. I’m sitting in bed with Ollie, watching Parks and Rec, and doing a little bit of blogging. This little bit of blogging, to be precise. It’s the second blog post I’ve written this afternoon/evening and that feels a little nice. It’s the second blog post that I’ve written in about a month – shout out to the gods that are scheduling and content calendars.

I spent most of this afternoon sitting outside with my laptop and planner, trying to figure out what the hell I had to write about.

Like, I’ve just spent two-ish weeks hanging around Canada and I have no content? What’s that about?

Truth is, I don’t really know what I’d blog about. I hate writing ‘things to do in X’ posts because having been in each place for three days max., it feels a little weird to be giving people advice about them.

I also took very few photos. My instagram would probably beg to differ, but in terms of usable blog photos there are definitely less than I would like.

Also as great as the insta photos are (see above), I was never really making a huge effort for getting that perfect shot. It was more about just enjoying things. For example, look at my hair in that photo. Look at it. Flat as a pancake in some weird looking combover. Hooray!

If I’m honest, I really enjoyed not really thinking about blog stuff while I was there. It turned it into a proper holiday rather than a blogging trip, and that was awesome. Sure instagram kept me on my toes, but blog wise I just took a massive break. It was fabulous.

But it has left me feeling frustrated. I have to produce content again from nothing, instead of something. Sure I bought a load of makeup, and did a load of amazing things, but I dunno. I’m not really a beauty blogger and I don’t really have anything exciting to say.

And I’m really bored of writing blog posts about how I’m stressed, tired, or lacking in inspiration.

Oh well.

  • I know exactly what you mean and it’s actually really nice to read that you really enjoyed your time there instead of just having loads of pictures and good content to share. I wrote a post recently too about how blogging and social media are a huge commitment to keep on top of and how it’s been robbing me of my time with people or in places/doing things I rarely see/do. I think it’s so important for us to take breaks sometimes, you shouldn’t feel bad about it – I know blogging means different things to different people (particularly if its your career) but there’s no harm in relaxing a bit sometimes!

    Ah I’m so glad you had time to just relax and take it aaaaall in, especially in somewhere as beautiful as Canada! I was the same when I went to Thailand for two weeks, literally had the best time but came back not quite sure what to write about.. Strange innit! Immy x

    There is nothing wrong with just enjoying life instead of worrying about content! Although I would love to hear about the things that you did do that you enjoyed (because I’m nosy AF)

    You’re putting too much pressure on yourself! I think that’s why you’re struggling to produce the content you feel like you should be writing. I, for one, quite enjoy these rambly, chatty posts. I’m really glad you managed to switch off and enjoy your holiday without stressing about the blog. Try to carry a little of that relaxation into your daily life. Brainstorm ideas, look for inspo on other’s blogs and, most importantly, don’t force it! You’ll get your blogging mojo back soon, I know it <3 x http://www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x

    I know how you feel about that kind of funk. I’ve taken trips where I thought I got enough content and I get home and I’m like geez how do I put this into a post. So I made a photo diary of my trip, wrote about what I did and here is a random collection of my photos =o)
