MY WORSE YEAR WRITING, EVER!
Is my juice dried up? I just don’t know…What to write about these days? I just don’t know… It’s like my wings have been clipped, and I had all the potential to fly. Should I talk through this moment, or find a corner to cry? (poetic right?) Well, that’s my feeling today, I was all for Hello October, and how the fall is so great, to be back to, now what? and what direction should my life be set to take. After trying to edit a few videos and photos from just about a week ago or two, I can’t seem to focus myself and decided to check up on my stats and the hard work I was putting in for the year.
As I was looking through my stats and my blogging posting habits & potentials, I saw a crazy growth in traffic, but less posting from myself. I must say it was quite shocking, for I can’t believe there was such a dip. I am a numbers guy, and facts & truths are my best friend, but coming off a high of 2014 of 359 posts, and 2015 of 421 posts, I am just this year sitting at a mere 132. Like oh my god, wow… How can this be? I love to share and post creative and cool things and ideas, and it just seems this year, I fell off.
I know you can’t be golden every single year, and of course you do at times burn out a bit. But I felt I was in my prime, I was going to be that person and machine of creativity and consistency I always knew I had in me. But being a blogger/writer about 7 years now, with quite a few highlights to brag and not brag about I guess, this is just that moment you have to make a full stop and look at myself.
Yes I do need a vacation, why am I not taking one? Hmmmm? I am working on multiple projects and building a brand from scratch. These efforts of working and building I knew was going to take me away from what made me a staple in the blogging world, but it’s not something I like to take easy. 2016, has changed me a lot, I must say. I went from promotion to promotion and even funded a new business. I can say I am doing good, and could be doing much better. I just want to write more.
I love to see when my words and thoughts are displayed on the screen, and engaging and interacting with people. I guess social media has taken the cake on those aspects, so that is where the world lives. To keep up with the times, we all seem to be doing the same thing. I just really wanted to write today and express how much I miss writing. I felt in the previous years, I had a great deal of more joy than this one. I have to find something to combat this feeling…Until then see you soon. 🙂
Let me know your thoughts…
Question: Have you fell off of something you loved doing in 2016?
Thanks for reading,

Thanks…yea, work and life seems to have caught up on us. I been feeling the same, like I write but I don’t get so excited on it’s formation. I look back at my old works, and I get so happy to know I did really great work back then. I hope I recover back into it.
You’re definitely not alone here. I compared my stats from this year and last year myself a while back and was pretty disappointed. Clearly not disappointed enough to write more though. I used to at least write one main article every month (which was still less than I had liked). Now its been almost 4 months since I’ve written one. BUT I HAVE experimented with different things – poetry and journals. Try looking at this differently…how have you evolved in what you contributed to your blog this year. Fudge numbers…what growth has your writing seen?
Lol…you said fudge. My writing has seen growth in dimensions of stories I am willing to tell, especially personal ones. I have kept most of my deep personal stories to myself, now I am letting them out. You are on a good track too. You have to be able to try different type of writings. Journals and poetry is a great way. It keeps it all flowing. Over the 7 years I been writing, I have to dabble in many writings to stay in the game and each thing I did evolved me.

Then I would say that you have accomplished much more than you realize. And I do see your personal writings and I love that addition to your blog 🙂

Yes, thanks… It’s a work in progress. Trying to fill in those moments and share those moments that pass so fast.
I too had to cut from posting twice per week to once, more from not having enough time to really interact with blogging friends. I think it’s brilliant you’re still being inventive and blogging after seven years 👍🏻😀
