Exhausted and Uninspired #MummyMondays

Exhausted & Uninspired (2)

I’m going to be honest. I’m tired, I’m exhausted and I’m uninspired. I have writers block and can’t seem to get a decent word out or anything that jumps into my mind that I really want to write about like I usually do.

I’ve been doubting myself a lot lately and my ability to write a decent article or blog post. I’m not sure why, but it’s been really bugging me.

The online world around me has been so loud lately, so loud with different points of view, different opinions,  it’s clouded my mind and I’ve just lost my mojo.

As a social media manager and blogger, it’s so hard not to see this stuff and to not have it challenge your thought processes.

I mean, I’m just me. I wouldn’t call myself a very interesting individual or very funny, I’m still learning the ropes of motherhood and am always working on self improvement, but I’m not an expert on anything…what on earth would I write about that would actually interest people?  In the last week I went to a Foo Fighters concert, I worked A LOT, I went grocery shopping, went to Dreamworld and had a night to myself and pigged out on Thai and ice cream. Seriously, that’s not really blog worthy? It’s not really of any value to anyone, is it?

Yes, this might sound like a ‘poor Eva’ moment, but I told you I was going to be honest.

I’ve hit a brick wall and I’m not quite sure how to get over it.

Any tips?

 

In the meantime, all you wonderful people who do have awesome things to write about, link up here!

    Hey Eva…Please blog Dreamworld! Don’t forget many of us miss out on such enjoyments! Just blog life lately. Always interesting – or food, a great fall back. Good luck! X

    Oh Eva, I know that feeling so wel. I’ve had it so many times over almost 6 years of blogging. It’s such an up and down thing, some years I’ve been flooded with ideas and inspiration, other years, like 2011/2012 I’ve been adrift, with not a lot to write about, no inspiration, and haven’t blogged a lot because of it. Just blog from the heart and the rest will come. My life is pretty boring and I am by no means an expert at anything but somehow I’ve managed to come up with something, and when u haven’t I’ve had small breaks, which really take the pressure off. Maybe you just need a small blog holiday for a few weeks with no pressure to write. You’ll probably suddenly have heaps of ideas!

    Firstly, don’t doubt yourself. You have a successful blog so what you are saying is of interest to many. Secondly, I had a bit of writers block the last few weeks, so I made myself enter a haiku competition – you had to submit 4. I had so much fun putting together the ideas into teeny tiny sparse verse. They weren’t great, and poetry is not really my thing, but the exercise of doing something so different with words seems to have got me going again….

    <> Hitting a brick wall totally sucks. Perhaps it’s time to take a short break. A couple of days away from the Internet getting some personal time. What sparked joy in you before the blog …before social media? Go do those things for a few days.

    That’s a crazy busy week. Maybe your brain got over stimulated and tired instead. Give it some rest (and did you know Johnny Depp was backstage at Foo Fighters?). Hope the inspiration starts flowing again soon

    Only a newbie blogger so giving advice sounds almost silly, but If I’m at a block (which happens a lot), I step away from the laptop/blogging and change my focus. I get out of the house, make plans with friends, take a nap, do some squats, explore some other interests of mine. Your blog is amazing and an inspiration to newbies like me. Hope your mojo comes back soon. In the meantime, I haven’t been to Dreamworld since I was a kid, I wonder what it’s like going there as an adult. And what is this “night to myself” thing you talk about.. I am quite unfamiliar with that term?? 🙂

    Always remember that online is not always real. People can say what they want, portray themselves however they want, but in reality you will find lots of bloggers feel the same way as you … Dreamworld is great- blog it…

    Not sure I have any tips but can certainly understand where you are coming from. The more blogs I read, the more I feel like we are saturated with what people do and how they feel. It is exhausting getting to know everybody and then feeling like you haven’t got anything significant to say. Maybe go back to why you started blogging and what you want to achieve from it…and as others have said blog from your heart.

    Oh honey, we’ve all been there! And its totally ok. Agree with Sharon take a short break, clear your head, do something totally fun, become inspired again. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself !

    Noooooo! This doesn’t sound like the awesome Eva we all know and love so much! Just remember there are a lot of us who count on you to inspire us and educate us and make us laugh and look at the world from a different perspective. I say that not to put any pressure on but to show you how much you give of yourself and how much it is appreciated. There are things you have written in your posts that I’ve never read anywhere else. Personal things about your life that have made me realise I’m not the only one that feels that way. Your mojo is only on a holiday. Maybe it just decided to hang out a Dreamworld for a little longer? But, it will be back in no time at all. Promise. xx

    Thai and ice cream sounds like a perfect blog to me. Two of my favourite foods. I know what you mean with the noise I had to back off a bit as I was getting overwhelmed by it all. Now I am pottering along with my favourite link up (yours being one, thank you), a few posts, and a couple of network posts. Have a good week. Julie

    I have all these drafts started.. I looked at them this morning and I have no idea where I’m going with any of them! Go and sit in a coffee shop in a busy shopping centre for a couple of hours and people watch….there are some interesting characters out there….

    Just take the pressure off, love! (says the woman with NINETEEN drafts that all look shitter than the last!) but I get what you’re saying and I feel like that constantly. But recently, a gorgeous blogging friend of mine told me to just stop pushing myself to blog when I’m not feeling it. She said that it’s better to post less often and make it a “must-read” than to post every little thing that happens just to put something up. It’s a hard gig because you’re a human, not a machine 😉 xx

    I am in the same boat exactly. I have nothing today. I am currently researching activities I can do with my preschooler. Be kind to yourself. Jx

    So sorry to hear this Eva – if you blogged just about Dave Grohl I’d be happy 🙂 Writers block sucks but I love reading your posts so take some downtime and inspiration will strike when you least expect it. xx

    We’ve all felt like that sometimes. I have felt like that. Sometimes when the internet world is getting too loud, it is best to pull the plug for a bit, disconnect and take a breather. Just read for the sake of reading, watch shows you love, do things that inspire you, not for a blog post, but for the fun of it.
    Have some fun just for you. Not so you can have something to write about. Then your “mojo” will come back after it is well rested. Blessing to you.

    Sorry to hear you have a hit a wall. All I can say is that people are interested in what you write and you were one of the first blogs I stumbled across when I first delved into the world of blogging. My advice would be to take a step back and I think the inspiration will just come when you least expect it (which is a tad frustrating but true!). xx
