It's not you, it's me.

It seems I have lost my blogging mojo.

I used to blog every day, because I enjoyed doing it.

Recently it's been every few days, because I just don't have anything interesting to say.

To be totally honest, I'm hardly ever reading other blogs on my daily reading list either. I seem to be in total Blog Rejection Mode.

Not sure why I'm in such a slump.

But it's not you, it's me.

I appreciate all of you who continue to read and comment, and hopefully my passion for writing this blog will kick back in soon.

Hang in there with me.

I'll be back.

Wow. I just stumbled across your blog by hitting the Next Blog icon at the top of the page. I am 46 years old and separated for the past four months. In the past few weeks I have said the exact same thing about losing my mojo - blogging and life in general. I have even used that puzzle picture for my profile pic on Facebook. LOL I'm bookmarking your site. It will be interesting to know someone who's on a similar journey.

OK I am going to be honest! I'm getting ready to post a photo I snapped of 'sunrise' and wonder what in God's name I'm doing.

Therefore, for the time being I will take a page from your blog book and leave followers with the image of a lovely sunrise. Thank you for helping.

Sometimes life gets in the way. The dating pool has too many frogs, too much food lately, who wants to exercise, work is a pain, miss the sun and fun, I want to be alone,I want to be with someone, it's hard work being funny, can't think of anything today, arggh blog block! is it something like that? been there

ain't for city gals said...

I agree...I think things go in cycles...fun to do for a while then other things come up....life would be so boring if things just stayed the same..The "new normal" in blogging might be just one a week or so...Personally, I would rather read one good toughtful post than five posts just blogging because you should.

Hi, Julie...guess we all go thru this at one time or another....
You probably just need to take a break and then you'll be ready again.
Hope you are feeling ok??

I well know this feeling. It comes and goes. It lasted for quite a few weeks in December. Probably because I was too busy with other things and working full-time to boot. Now I'm not working (again) so I guess I have more time for the blogging.

But this time of year it's easy to lose our mojo for many things. The short, gray winter days cause us to move like slugs, non-motivated.

I'm lucky we still see the sun and blue skies here in Kansas several days a week. Today is not one of those days however... gray, snowy and foggy too!

Hang in there lady! :)

It's always ok to do what you want, no apologizing to people...
Take some pleasure time, it'll be good.

Must be something in the air, it's gotten to me too :(

Fragrant Liar said...

I always struggle with that too. I have a longer goal in mind, and that's why I stay at it, but I totally get what you're saying. Ya gotta live life.

Having said that, please don't stop. Maybe just do it less.

Lorna said...

Enjoy the rest; life goes on in ebbs and flows--this is part of the flow...(plus it gives newbies time to catch up on your older posts!)

Don't leave now, I just got here. What is with the last comment. Louisville???? Lou

Vegas Linda Lou said...

Lorna's right--life ebbs and flows. Not to worry.

I'll tell you something I'd like to read about: a Julie solo adventure out on the town. I know this is out of your comfort zone, and it is for many women. Go to a bar by yourself (make sure there's a good band) and report back on what happens and who you meet. And no, you can't use one of my old posts!

Yep, step out of that comfort zone. That'll give you something to write about, I guarantee!

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

I totally agree with Linda! I would love to see a solo adventure through your eyes. You don't know how many people you help by the words that you speak on your blog. When it hits you, just blog, k?

Julie said...

Lalalalalalala.....fingers in my ears....can't hear what Linda Lou is saying....lalalalalalala.

LOL!

Danica said...

I'm very much the same way. I have only been able to get caught up since I have been off and bored.

Violet said...

Hmmm, I'm feeling the same way - not writing and not even keeping up with other blogs like usual.

I'm chalking it up to lack of sunlight, nothing to grumble about but cold and dark, and nothing happy to report.

Sing with me - Kumbayah, my lord...

Coffeypot said...

Take your time, I'll be waiting on you to return.

gayle said...

I love your blog!!! You need to do what you need to do. Sometimes when bloggers blog everyday they don't really say much. When you blog you always "Say something great"!

STILLMAGNOLIA said...

I totally understand. I took a three month hiatus....When my dad died I just had nothing to say. I started back a little bit ago and feel a bit shaky...but am enjoying it...and if I don't do it everyday I don't...and I don't worry about it. I blog for my own sanity...and for the readers if they can gleen something that will help them along their way...great! If not...try back tomorrow. I love reading you...but do what you have to do.

Gaston Studio said...

I had to go to posting once weekly, which means I also don't read blogs every single day and leave comments on them. We're all behind you kiddo, do what's necessary for you.

Tee aka The Diva's Thoughts said...

I think we all get that way every now and then. With writers its called writers block, with us bloggers I guess we get bloggers block. Just hang in there and you all get your mojo back.

Dr. Penny said...

It's winter in Ohio, for God's sake, what do you expect? Start saving your money and get your ass down here with me for your birthday -- not that that plan will get rid of writer's block, but it will sure start you off with a great tan for the summer, some vitamin D to get your through the spring flu bout, and some new stories to tell or write about!! Tequilla in Mexico -- you just can't beat that!!

Julie said...

Yeah, maybe it is a blah winter thing.

Pen, if I can get a good (ie: inexpensive) flight, I'll be there! I can do tequila in Mexico, no problemo!

Hey there! I have a little something for you over at my place.

Found your blog through a link, hope you get your Mojo for blogging back - I found it interesting to read. Oh, and I think the short guy from Survivor was cute too.

Oh Julie, you take your time. Private blogs should be only for selfish purposes, write when you wish. I'm always here following and enjoying your fresh perspective.
