Where to begin. This page has been more than a little neglected over recent weeks; at least in comparison with how much I'd like to post. I've never stuck to a religious blogging schedule, but four or five half-hearted posts in the space of three weeks seems pretty lame, even for me.
I feel as though experiencing a lull in productivity is only natural when you've been doing something for so long. I've been blogging for three years now and this is really the first time that I've found myself not even wanting to create new content. It probably has a lot to do with my job; sitting in front of a computer for hours on end has definitely put me off spending so much of my spare time online. It's also suddenly hit me just how much blogging has changed in a short space of time. Writing continues to be my biggest passion and I still get so much from talking about all the things I like on here - I'm just not entirely sure where my place is. It's daunting to see so many people making a huge success of something that to me is still a hobby.
Comparing my content to other people's is one of my biggest flaws. It's something I'm determined to get a little better at in future - alongside learning not to put as much pressure on myself in order to fit into a certain niche. A few weeks away from this place has taught me that I really do miss it, regardless of how frustrating it can sometimes be. Taking a step back has allowed me to refocus on everything that I loved about blogging in the first place. I started reading blogs long before the industry became so commercialised and that's still the kind of blog that I want to write. For the first time in ages, I'm really looking forward to sitting down and brainstorming some ideas. Normal service will resume soon.
