I have a confession to make: I’m having what I’ll call a blogging crisis. As I’ve written more and more about motherhood, I’ve felt more lost about my content focus. I’ve never considered myself a “mommy blogger” in the sense that I wrote about my children; I’m more of a writer who mothers.
So when I had all these ideas start to pile up about the lessons I’m learning on the journey to figure out exactly how I want to live my life as a free agent, I felt stuck.
And so I didn’t write. And then I felt bad because I hadn’t written anything and didn’t know how to get back to where I wanted my focus to be. How do I go from the boy playing football to reflecting on life and the things I’ve learned since jumping into the freelance waters? How to I bring my reflections back to introspection, rather than musing about my child?
Some would say, I could start a separate blog to focus on all my interests. It sounds simple in theory, but seriously, who has time for multiple blogs to maintain when they’ve got a business to run?
So again, I feel like I’m starting over, and I seem to do this once in a while. Sometimes I just need to step back to get some perspective on where I’m going and what I’m doing. Sometimes, I just need a break.
But because I am so compelled to share, I’ll always come back. Hopefully, you’ll stay on the ride with me, even when it gets stuck.
