What can I say that hasn't been said before. We all get a case of the "blahs" every now and again. Whether it be with our bodies, our creativity, relationships, work, the sin of comparison, or all of the above. You name it, we've all been there. Right now I feel like I have a big case of the "blahs" when it comes to the blogging world. Many people have noticed that blogging interaction has gone down significantly the past few months which can play mind tricks with your ego. Are people still reading blogs? Are people still reading my blog? Is my content relevant? Are my pictures pretty enough so that they will be "pinned"? With all of these higher social media platforms now, bloggers have to start getting creative when it comes to everything they put out into the media world. It's not really about the quality of writing anymore, but rather being better than other bloggers and having more of a follower base. And then you see all of these bloggers who have been having loads of success (heading to fashion week, being published in magazines, writing their own books, creating their own phone apps, doing company collaborations). I can't help but think, why not me? The sin of comparison is no fun. But I don't want this entire post to be a "debbie downer". I guess I just wanted to play my tiny violin and see if I was the only one feeling this way. All in all, I miss you! I miss your comments. I miss the friendships that spring from this blogging universe. Instead of comparing let's applaud others successes; let's inspire one another!
What tricks do you have to getting out of a "blah" state of mind?
