Sometimes I wish I were pregnant (and other blogging woes)

Okay, so I really don't wish I was pregnant. Sure, in the future, it would be nice being that I do want kids, but I don't actually wish I was having a baby right now. It's just that pregnant women have so much to blog about.

I know that statement totally makes me sound like a crazy person, but it's true. Wedding planning, travelling, babies, pregnancy, they all have one thing in common: blog material.

Maybe that it's because I'm still in shock over graduating and not having to look at a computer screen or book for homework/studying/research purposes anymore, but I just can't seem to get back in the swing of blogging. Then again, maybe it's because I (still) don't have internet at my new apartment and I haven't found my new "comfort zone" to write in and every time I sit down at Panera Bread or Starbucks (or anywhere else with free Wi-Fi) I just can't seem to make words come out of my fingertips.

And maybe it does make me a little shallow to wish these things (although I don't wish them strictly for blogging purposes) but at least I'm admitting it, right? I mean, wouldn't it be nice... when I didn't have anything going on, I would have blogging material, ready made, growing in my belly (or sitting on my left hand ring finger, or residing in my suitcase while I packed) instead of trying to come up with good material based on the monotony that is currently my life.

Absolutely nothing to do with this post. But I wanted to show off what my new lens can do. I'm still working on manual focusing.


Raven wrote an amazing post yesterday, where she talked about her blog being half made up of exaggerations and stories that are only meant for entertaining purposes, and she was right. She hit the nail on the head, because whose life is REALLY interesting enough to blog about 24/7? We aren't the effing Kardashians. But that still doesn't take away from the fact that I don't want to quit blogging, but at the same time, I just can't get in to blogging right now. I really want to jump back in to sponsorships and such, but maybe, just right this minute, the timing still isn't right.

Then again, it's just a blog, right?

I totally feel your pain, and I understand.

As bloggers we feel a consistent pull to always come back to the blog, but the hard part is we don't always have the content! It's the most frustrating thing EVER!

but even though it is hard to say, it is JUST a blog.....that becomes our whole lives.

Understand totally. In fact, I've pretty much decided that my personal blog has lost its utility. It has become more of a personal diary of pictures that recap things I do... and I can use instagram and facebook for that. I started a new blog that has more of a focus (modern housewares, decor, etc for jewish martha stewarts), and that's where I"m going to put my energy now!

I think that's what makes link ups so fun of blogs. Just when you have nothing to blog about, someone is like lets do a Friday five! Or write about your favorite song of the week.

Hahaha I hear ya! I always felt like I'd have so much to blog about when I got pregnant but here I am and I don't have a whole lot to say! Enjoy this time with out books to read or computer screens to stare at!

I mean let's be honest, not even the Kardashians are entertaining all the time.

Casey Aslan said...

Yes, yes and yes! This is why I've had to take a step back…these expectations for ourselves is often overwhelming! And I don't know about you, but I'm glad I'm not a Kardashian!

I'm the most boring person on the planet. No joke. I just write the random thoughts that are in my head and luckily, people find it semi-entertaining! haha

I totally agree. Now that I'm working as a nurse and not in college, and I'm married with no plans to buy a house or have a kid right now, so I hardly have any blog post ideas!

Congratulations on your graduation. Use this time to relax a bit and adjust to your new routine. :) Try not to stress over it. The content will come. I wanted to show my bloggy friends a cool program that I found called Gradsavers, this company pays you to do tasks online such as write blog posts, FB and twitter updates, and articles. The points convert to money and they apply the money directly to your student loans!!! I signed up tonight and there aren't a lot of tasks, but hopefully that will change once it's up and running. Here is the link: http://t.co/7TJO5LB6R5. Have a great summer! I am job hunting right along with you..not many nursing positions in Indy.

You need a cute little neighborhood coffee shop, I love Starbucks more than the average person but I CANNOT focus there to save my life.

I have these thoughts all the time! I think I'll take the extra bling over the baby for now though

I have those thoughts way too often, "if only I was...then I'd have tons of good posts"
