This morning, I just renewed my WordPress plan. That’s $96 down the drain for a hobby.


I’ve been feeling distant from blogging lately, aside from my weekly cooking diaries, I literally have zero desire to sit down and write. Today is an exception though. For $96 I told myself I have to write a post about what I’m feeling about blogging and about my life lately.

Aside from the usual reasons like: I love writing, blogging is fun, reading about people and their lives is amusing, I really don’t have any reason. I honestly find blogging a chore lately – like I have to sit down, think, conceptualize, take pictures, edit, and proofread when I could do something more productive or useful with that time. I know it’s because of my new set of responsibilities but this feeling has been taking over me a lot and it’s not good.

My old blogging friends are also missing or are not as present as they once were. They rarely post and since I’m not into social media that much, going to another platform just to keep in touch is too much. I also don’t have the energy to make new friends. I’m basically here talking to myself but still wanting some attention.

I also don’t have time. I can make time but doing so would require some sort of sacrifice. I thought moving closer to work would give me more freedom and time but all I’ve been doing is working harder. I’m honestly enjoying work but I’m slowly realizing that maybe it’s at the expense of my life.

I really don’t know why I hit the renew button this morning. I don’t really feel motivated to do this blogging thing but I know deep in my heart I love blogging. I love writing and I love sharing my thoughts, reviews, stories, recipes, and whatnots to random strangers on the internet. I just have to get my groove back.

I will get it back.

  1. “My old blogging friends are also missing or are not as present as they once were.” HA! Oh my guilty me!! HAHAHAHA Marami kang followers, kaya maraming malulungkot pag ikaw ang nagstop magblog. Isa na ko dun. Buti ka nga kahit you’re feeling like in a blogging funk, may mga naipopost ka pa rin na magaganda. Lillipas rin yang phase na yan for sure once you get back in the groove sabi mo nga. 🙂 Medyo naburn out ka lang siguro sa pagbablog. Ayan na may motivation ka na to keep going, sayang naman ang $96 diba. 😀

    1. Hahahahha!! Fault mo talaga to, Gerry. 😀 Kailan ka ba mag ppost uli? 😦

      Kasi I’m trying for the price, I have to try. And kahit na nasa ‘funk’ ako, iniisip ko pa din siya. Hay. Baka dahil ang dami ko lang ding ginagawa. IDK 😦

      1. O ayan ah, kasalanan ko talaga. 😀 Relate na relate ako sa nafifeel mo, sa isip ko .. parang ngayon mo pa lang nafeel yang ‘funk’ na yan pero ako I’ve been there way too many times na, hindi pa ba obvious? HAHA

        It’ll help greatly for you take a breather muna. Hinga hinga rin pag may time. Hindi ko naman sinasabing tularan mo ko na buwan ang inaabot sa pagpapahinga. Gaya nga ng sabi ko baka naburn out ka lang sa sobrang consistent mong magposts. Take some time to relax and recharge.

  2. Kung feeling mo chore na ang blogging sayo, I guess pahinga ka muna siguro. Like Aysa said, cool off muna siguro kayo. Galit-galit muna. Sooner babalik din uli yung mga reasons on why you started your blog in the first place. ☺

      1. Unfortunately, gustuhin man natin pero hindi pwede yung ganun eh. But I believe yung ideas, motivation & aspiration ng blogging, darating yan (uli) sa tamang panahon. Mailap lang sa ngayon, pero one day yung magiging purpose talaga ng blog mo ay mararamdaman mo na lang ng hindi mo inaasahan. ☺

      2. Yan din pinapaniwalaan ko. 😀 Kaya nga kahit wala ako sa mood, bumibisita pa din ako, kasi hindi naman babalik ng kusa lang din yun, dapat may effort din from me

    1. Thank u! ❤ I'm honestly shocked that someone even responded to last night's call for help (ahem, attention). LOL. I still want to continue blogging, I just need to find the right motivation 🙂

  3. I am blogging but sometimes I feel lost. I miss reading you too. Not sure of my words here but there is a content overload and instead of feeling great about blogging, I am feeling a bit lost. I am writing in my blog and that’s how I would put it. My posts have gone down but I post occasional pictures. And guilt is on my mind all the time. So, cutting the long story short, you are not alone.

  4. I can totally relate to you. It can be difficult to find inspiration to write when we are so busy with work that by the time we have some free time, our brains are fried. But that doesn’t mean we should stop writing altogether. Don’t worry, you will get your groove back. 🙂
