I know, I know!! I said I would be uploading every Wednesday and Sunday to my blog and I haven’t uploaded a new post since October! OCTOBER!! That’s pretty bad.
So, should I start making my excuses now? Where have I been? What have I been up to that has resulted in me not writing since October. I have many reasons… or excuses!
Number One, I’ll be honest. I have had a lack of confidence with my writing. I feel I have hit a bit of a brick wall. Well I say have, but I’d like to think that now, as I am sat here typing away, that I am getting over it. But I was not only finding what to talk about difficult, but I also begun questioning my own writing ability. I know I’m not a fabulous writer, I don’t use big eloquent words (unless I’ve cracked out the thesaurus)… and yes I just wrote eloquent, but I had to check the dictionary first to make sure I was using it in the right context! But I was finding reading other peoples blogs were making me less and less confident about my writing. Friends have tried to reassure me in my writing skill, and yet I know they are being nice and I’m not your next J.K Rowling, I’m going to get back on it and just write.
Number Two, I have just moved house!! Very exciting! My fiancé and I have said goodbye to our lovely 2 bed flat and moved into our 3 bed house! I feel like a proper grown up now. We moved a week before Christmas and it was truly the most stressful thing I think I have ever done. The house is an older property, which needs a lot of work, so will be fun to start our project and put our own stamp on it!
Number Three, It’s been Christmas!! My most favourite time of the year but I have been so busy with work and moving house that it’s not even felt like Christmas. And what with this mild weather it just feels like any other time of the year. But that’s certainly kept me busy and away from my blog!
So, here comes that corny New Year, New Start mumbo jumbo! I’m going to get back on to writing and posting interesting blogs, well what I think are interesting anyway, and make sure I blog at least once a week. I’m not going to be too structured with my upload days. If I fancy writing about something, I don’t care if it’s a Monday or a Sunday.
Happy New Year Everyone and I’ll see you all in 2016!
