I had coffee with a pal of mine today and we started talking about blogging.
I love talking about blogging.
It’s a passion.
It’s how I make my living.
I think about it A LOT. (My husband would probably say that I think about it way toooooo much.)
I pretty much spewed negativity the entire time. I whined about I didn’t have enough time to blog, how I was so busy, how I was uninspired and on and on.
And he made a simple comment which cut me to the core , “Yeah, I have noticed that you are a little all over the place.” Oh man, SHOT IN THE HEART.
I don’t know who I am. I don’t know what I want to blog about anymore. I am IN A TRANSITION. The funny thing is that I consult with clients about this type of thing all the time.
I just can’t follow my own advice.
Or as one of my other blogging pals so succinctly said, “the cobbler’s kids have no shoes.”
Ain’t that the truth?
So now I am in blog depression. Surfing the interwebs… Admiring other people’s blogs. Wondering how they come up with such great content and good stories. Feeling a little jealous about their opportunities. Wondering how to get those type of opportunities and their amount of readership… Wondering if this blog is even worth anything anymore…
Comparing yourself to others never helps anything, does it?
So I am pouring my heart out to you, my readers. Do you understand? Have you ever felt this way?
Anyone else suffer from blog depression?
