Lazy Blogger! Who me?

I just haven't gotten my blogging groove back after the past month or so. I'm not sure why, and I'm still here. Still reading - without that much commenting. Still tweeting - definitely chatting there, and using Triberr, too.

Speaking of, if you aren't on there yet and want in, let me know. I have a pretty small tribe I'd love to add a few like-minded friends to.


I'm also still posting, but I'm not writing as much as I'd like to be.


We all know how that goes, I am sure. So I decided to sit down and think it through a bit. And then, it hit me. I didn't want to do that. You all are busy enough that you don't need to sit here and gloss over why I'M not writing as much. Right?


I'm just not inspired right now.


I'm not depressed. That much I know.


I'm not bored. Not that bored, anyway.


I'm just not motivated by much.


And I need to do something to change that.

I turned 39 back in October. I say back as if it were eons ago. But it hasn't even been a month.

So why does it feel so much longer?

I don't know. I shouldn't care. I should just move ahead and DO. BE. Be me!

At some point I want to write up a list of the things I want to do before I turn 40. 40 before 40, maybe? I think that could work. I also am working on doing some different kind of volunteer work. I've been volunteering with my local mommies' group since 2008. That's a long time. I love what I do there, and I love what I do on a national level, as well. But I need to branch out more. Give myself something new. I'm hoping to be able to do that soon. I'll keep you all posted.

So - - what do you do when you hit a blogging funk? Or a writing funk? Or just an in general day to day kind of funk? What inspires YOU?

I am in a funk about a lot of things. I should be working after two weeks off but I am just not very motivated. I should be writing and crafting but again not motivated. I don't know what to tell you to do to get out of it. Hopefully the funk will blow over soon.

At this point, I just can't wait to get through my gift guide. It's completely annoying me to have to do this many giveaways. I can not wait until December when I slow down.

I understand the funk. I think you are handling it the right ways with doing things that you enjoy. The writing will come later.

I just take pics and hope for inspiration.

You totally do not look 39!

We understand. Sometimes we are just not moved to share. We'll be here when you are.

I suppose I am too new at blogging to be in a funk, but I can certainly see how it could happen.

If I have an idea I go to new post and title it, then come back when the mood hits me to blog about it.

This has worked well...so far.

I know how you feel. But on top of the blogging I took on the challenge of NaNoWriMo.... that is a lot of work!

Just not feeling all that motivated lately. Not even to tweet really.

You know I've been positively funkalicious all fall. For several weeks I recruited guest bloggers, because I had nothing. Now I try to bank posts when the mood strikes and go from there.

What is the Triberr you speak of?

Shell said...

Shut up.

You are NOT 39.

I would buy 29.

I think it is just the time of year...I'm hearing a lot about funks, and I usually have an annual one around Oct/Nov. The way I seem to get out of it is something comes along that makes me busy (impending house guests, project due, stuff like that...) or I just do...no rhyme or reason. Sometimes letting yourself funk out for a bit can refocus you in it's own time.

Blogger enemy #1: Writers block!

Patty @ A Day in My NYC said...

It's okay! I do all the other things I neglect when I'm usually blogging...like organizing or redecorating rooms in the house. Not all out expensive stuff, but moving furniture around, moving my writing desk to another side of the living room, changing pictures in the frames. Little things to spark creativity. oh yeah and extra naps help too :)

I also hit a funk around October. Fortunately, November is NaBloPoMo and that FORCES me to just suck it up and write. Not all of it is good. But at least it gets me back in the routine of writing.

Good luck...
