Finding Blogging Time In My So Called Life

Wow, I can't believe I haven't managed to blog in over two weeks! Apparently I just don't have the time to do it right now. Of course, I do have enough time in theory, but the few hours of downtime I have right now when I'm not at work, playing with the kids, or getting things done around the house are used simply relaxing and not much else. Now you might thing that those moments of relaxation would be the perfect time to get a few thoughts down on my blog, but as it turns out it doesn't work that way!

The reason I was so effective at blogging when I had time off from my job this summer is that I had so much free time that I could devote quite a bit to creative thinking and writing time. When I'm working as much as I have been these last few weeks (both at work and at home), I don't have the creative energy to blog. Sure, I could write a quick update now and then on the latest happenings in my life or maybe a few thoughts on food or kids, but without that extra bit of creative energy necessary to be thoughtful or clever or particularly interesting, I just don't see the point. I've enjoyed writing here a great deal, so I hope I can find the balance necessary in my life to start posting more, or find a way to spark my creativity a bit more often to allow me to write despite a hectic schedule.

Stay tuned!

I totally get where you are coming from. I was sick for the past few weeks. After the initial yuckiness, I still had to stay in bed for a few days. I could have done some blogging, but my brain didn't want to do anything but watch TV. In my opinion, it is better to put your blog on hold for a little while than to post just for the sake of posting.
