Overwhelmed in Bloggerdom

So, what happens when I’ve worked my ass off to get a ton of great content to write about? Well – this, of course. For the first time ever, I’ve found myself so overwhelmed that I can barely complete a thought.

I. Can’t. Believe. It.

I LOVE blogging and all the many hours of research that goes into it gives me some sort of super nerdy pleasure. So the fact that I feel like throwing a few things into a bag and running wherever the sunset takes me for a few days, instead of doing what I love to do on the daily (Blog, gardening, social media, learning, and ‘lunching’) baffles me.

I don’t have writers block. Quite the contrary, actually. But for some reason, the perfectionist in me has not currently been allowing me to sit down and write the way I want things written. So, instead, I have been focusing on some of my favourite light-hearted series’ and then multi-tasking. Multi-tasking meaning that I can’t focus on 1 thing, but am instead in the middle of 100 things and completing none of them. This is new.

What do you think? Is this being overwhelmed, or do I just have a major case of wanderlust with a side of ‘attention span of a fruitfly’?

No worries, I’m not flaking out on you guys. I just wanted to let you know what was going on in my world since I usually post every other day.

Happy Summer!

  2. You are doing really great! Not having writer’s block is amazing, I get overwhelmed as well but instead of being pressured, I use it to encourage me more in posting or writing something. You’ve been honest with yourself and that is really amazing.

    Facts! You are experiencing a small bit of writers block or as I like to call it “bloggers blues”, and that’s okay. No one ever said that you had to write the great American , Canadian, or British blog post in the world every day. That just doesn’t happen. Take some time out to do the little things whether it be gardening , walking, or doing nothing at all . These can always be used as a blog post whenever you’re ready to blog again.

    Online information researches and perfectionism can be overwhelming. You can always write drafts that ignore your perfectionist and afterwards, after a while, look at it and find the good in it, mix it with some other content and move closer for a good post. Perfectionism is known to cause problems with creativity.
