My Bad

I feel as if I owe whomever reads my blog an apology. 

As of lately, I don't know if I would actually read my blog. It seems forced, stressed, like it's "trying." I'm sorry. Or if it doesn't actually come across that way...It certainly feels that way to me.

Blogging is now something I've come to check off my never ending to do list. Something that I feel like is a must instead of a want. And it shouldn't be that way. Blogging is something I started when I started law school as an outlet. A place to sound like myself (instead of always having to write like an attorney), a place to talk about whatever I wanted to...not planning forced posts like it's (another) part-time job. 

So, I suppose I want to apologize to all of you. I'm going to make an effort to make my blog less of a "have to", and more of a "get to." So if you notice an increase or decrease in posts, more of an array of topics, or a different tone, that's on purpose.

As always, Thank you for reading.


  1. I've gone through this and will go through it again. I feel like it's a #bloggerproblem. I always look forward to reading your posts so you do what you gotta do!

  2. I definitely have been going through this too. I love the support and friends I've made through blogging SO much. But it's a ton of work-- and you want to seem genuine and not push your content out on people.

    One that that has really helped me is creating a blogging calendar. I sit down once or twice a month and schedule out post topics 2-6 weeks out. That way you never run into that "ugh... I need to write a post what should I do" thing. You can also schedule breaks for yourself or pre-write posts for when you know you'll be super busy.

    Generally I spend 4 hours on Sunday night writing the bones of my posts, then go in a fill them in throughout the week as need be. I would say it's definitely held me get my mojo back. plus I feel like my content is improving--- i don't know if the readers feel the same, but i do :)


  3. I can understand and went through the same thing myself! I think cutting back blogging can help so it's not something you have to do daily! Take your time and when you're ready we'll be waiting!
