Writers Block

Perhaps it’s the lack of sleep, or the juggling of my new norm, which I’m still trying to figure out, by the way… but I’m just feeling flat when it comes to blogging. To even type that hurts my heart because I LOVE my blog. My blog brings me such joy and I have always maintained that I would write it regardless of audience figures. 

I have had this love of writing and photography for as long as I can remember and I started blogging long before it became popular.

Lately, I just feel like I have writers block. Can I even call it writers block? I feel like I have lots to say and nothing at all, at the same time.

I don’t feel like I have anything overly interesting or exciting to write about, even though I’m in such an exciting stage in my life. I suppose I don’t want to turn my blog into just a Mommy blog. It’s definitely an aspect that I am adding, but just like life, I need to balance it and at the moment, balance is something I’m struggling with. That and energy. I feel like I need an energy boost in life, in general.

I’m hoping to be struck by some wonderful inspiration, because I don’t want to stop blogging. I’m also hoping to get a little more energy to compose beautiful content.

Is there anything you’d love to read about? Perhaps you can be my muse and inspire me with some ideas.

    Hi Bails, I have always loved the fact that your blog was so unscripted.
    Never predictable, you just spoke or wrote from your heart.
    Sometimes funny, sometimes I would grab the tissues and sometimes I felt truely inspired or motivated after reading it!!

    Whatever you choose to write about would be great because you are open and honest!

    Bailey , I have missed your blog so much that I went into your archive and read blogs from years ago just to be able to get my Vanilla Blonde fix.
    Being a New mommy is exciting and terrifying at the same time I’m sure , write about your lil boy and the love you have for him or the frustration you feel at times.
    As long as you writing I’m happy!

    Are you able to tell us about the TV commercial yet…??? The one where all 3 of you were featuring. Or did I miss this?

    We were also just talking now about how great SA is, and the amazing people in SA. So any feel good SA stories or moments are always nice to read about xx

    I have followed your blog from years ago, and just like the first comment said, it’s always from your heart. So just write, even if it’s about lack of sleep and being a mom! That is where you are at and we can relate!

    Your blog is like no other, because unlike the artificial plastic stuff that seems to be everywhere, you write from the heart.
    So don’t feel pressured to write something immediately, just take a break, we’ll all be here when you are ready. And don’t worry about turning it into a “mommy blog”, that’s what is big in your life right now and we all are so happy for you and love to hear all about it.

    I adore your blog, and everything you write…I would really love some hair hacks, beauty hacks, some DIY’s or just write about being a mommy…your heart will lead and tell you what to write 😉 xx

    Been following your blog I think since just after you started. Like others have said, what I love is the unpredictability – you never know if it’s going to be about fashion, beauty, life in general, travel, big announcements, whatever. I’d say go with what’s going on in your life right now, it’s what’s been working for you until now. And if there’s a day or 3 when you dont feel like publishing anything, that’s ok too, we will survive (I hope LOL). Good luck Bails!

    I love your blog. Followed your pregnancy and love reading about your little man and journey into motherhood. I’m still looking forward to you posting on the travel system you chose. I also gave birth around the same time as you and I am inspired to read about you juggling motherhood and work. It inspires me. You always manage to blog fearlessly no matter the topic and reading your blog always makes me feel better. Whatever is current in your life now is the direction to blog in , I guess. However even if you don’t blog, you’re still awesome.
