In Which I Admit I Miss Blogging August 9, 2011

Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

I miss blogging.

I have variations of this conversation with lots of people lately: “I just can’t seem to catch up. I can’t get it all done.” “I can’t either.” “How did I get so much of it done before?”

I am not making much money this year. I am not actively doing anything about it. Just keeping up with the part-time work and the house-and-life-related chores is all I can manage, it seems.

But I used to work more. And blog. And get all the stuff that had to be done done, somehow.

If I never took on any work again, I still would not be able to keep up with bills and cleaning and hiring people to do stuff I can’t and groceries and cooking and . . .

I’m not playing as much as I should either.

What’s going on?

I have this feeling all the time–have had it for years. I’ve come to the conclusion that it is strictly a subjective state, having nothing to do with reality (whatever that is).

I know what you mean, IB. It happens.

I don’t know. I do know I often feel completely overwhelmed by all the things that need doing. I then get caught up in a spiral of negative emotions that makes everything worse.

I think maybe Lali is right.

Oh my, I can relate. As you know, about a month ago my employment situationo became a lack of employment situation. I thought I’d have heaps of time for writing, cleaning etc. I don’t. My office is still a disaster zone. I’ve not looked at my writing project. I can’t keep up either. Perhaps for you it’s a summer ennui?

I do think Lali is probably right.

Helen: Exactly.

And Mali, I’m surprised, because it seems like you’ve been writing a lot (if not on whatever your writing project is). But I’m also oddly comforted. And summer is so fleeting here, I can’t believe there would be any ennui…

IB, I think my blog writing is a form of procrastination! A pleasurable form of procrastination though.

I have exactly the same feeling…and my upcoming vacation(s) are stressing me more than anything else! I run two blogs on which I have to schedule posts, am planning to publish an e-book, need to write articles before I leave, and keep up with my Italian. This is besides regular chores etc. I can’t keep up. My personal theory is I’m growing old.

Damyanti: Planning my upcoming vacation is definitely stressing me out!

same thing here …. less billable work, less blogging. For me, it’s not wanting to reveal to the world how shamefully little I really do, and how that fact drags my psyche.
