To blog or not to blog... 

To be honest, I just haven't been in the mood to blog as much lately. I guess I'm having my 1st blogger's slump. I've been blogging nonstop for over 2 years now (posting 2 maybe 3 times per week) and I think it all just caught up with me. Taking photos...editing photos...uploading photos...answering questions...reading comments...commenting on other blogs...WHEW!! It can really drain ya! 

I've also been wrestling with the guilt of neglecting God and family due to the time it takes to truly be a good blogger. I don't want to become that mom/wife that spends more time blogging than with the people that mean the most to me. After all, this is only a hobby. 

So, I've decided to only allow myself a certain amount of time each day to do "blog things". This could seriously become a full-time job if you let it and I already have a full-time job! lol I've also decided to make blogging less of an obligation. I don't know why I've carried that burden anyway. 

Any who, I'm so excited for Spring fashion! There is only one problem, it's 30 degrees outside! I don't know what happened. We had a week of warm 70s and now this. Yo Dallas! Imma need you to do better!

Vest: Rachel Zoe
Denim Shirt: Ralph Lauren
Wide Leg Jeans: Lane Bryant
Hat: H&M
Sunnies: House of Harlow
Shoes: Modern Vintage
Earrings: F21

With Love,

I was just commenting to my momma about the Bipolar wether in Texas...Ummm excuse me weather...look me in my eyes when I'm talking to you,,,WE TALKED ABOUT THIS! I need consistency.
Oh well.
Guess I can break out the purple tights tomorrow, (but watch it be hot)!
I feel you on blogger being just a hobby. That's why my following is low. I am grateful for the nice comments and the on-lookers of my spectacle, but this is a hobby and an outlet for self-confidence and empowerment for me.
I might want it to be more, but for what I'm taking on day-to-day at the moment, its not a possibility.

Khia you look fabulous...Love the Spring/Winter fusion!

Love the look, especially the vest...with the snow and cold around here I need something like that, hurry on spring!

If blogging isn't fun anymore it's definitely time to re-think, well done.

Cute look. I totally get what your saying, I see some blogger than post literally everyday and I don't get how they do it, I think the most I've ever done was 8 in a month. I enjoy your posts so I hope you don't completely disappear.

Love this look has a great retro feel!

I feel you that's why I only post OOTDS like once a week. I don't have time to shoot photos more than than a week. lollllll Great look!

I hope you don´t give it up completely. I need your honesty, Inspiration and Style like many others in the bloggosphere, but do take your time and flow with life.

I totally get you on both points. The bipoloar Texas weather. It does all of a sudden in Spring that it wants to get cold.

I put away all of my winter/fall clothes so I'm just braving the temps.

As far as blogging, I have those slumps too. I get bored with myself. I"m seriously considering shutting down my blog. Right now though, I just don't put any pressure on myself anymore. If I have something to say, I will. If I don't, then no post. I've gone weeks and not taken a single picture. And life still went on:)

I feel ya. My blog is a hobby too and I try my best to keep it just that. And like you said, I work full time already so if the blog ain't paying me my salary, it takes less priority. Do what you gotta do lady. I will wait for your posts when they come. You look fab-o here.

Vivi N. said...

Yeah. It hasn't been spring-like over here, either. I told myself that I don't care what the whether is like on Easter Day, I rockin' a full out bright Spring outfit. Shooo.

Funny enough, I also went through a 'I-don't-really-feel-like-blogging' phase. Didn't even feel like attending events. It lasted for about a week. lolol. Now, I'm excited again. Really, a break is needed from time to time. So I completely understand.

First of all, I'm in love with those wide legged pants! I've been wanting a pair for the longest so I may try and find some. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

I can totally understand what you mean in regards to blogging. I took a two week break myself recently and loved it. I think that if it's a hobby to you and not something you want to do full time, then you should do it at your leisure. :)

I'm gazing trying to figure out which part of the outfit I like best because all of it is fly. You have such a presence.

It's OK to take a blog break. Put a few posts on auto schedule and enjoy your family. Faithful readers will be here.

Looking good!!! Thank you so much for your openness on blogging and how it can take so much time away from other things in life. Because there needs to be a balance in life.

Laura said...

p.s. been struggling with the issue of blogging myself I don't want to quit but I'm definitely rethinking and seeking the Lord for wisdom in how I should blog.

I always appreciate it any time you post a blog, even if I don't comment, and I always appreciate it when you take the time to read and comment on my blog! You're one of the few people in the fashion blogosphere that has taken the time to do that with me, so I'm really grateful!

I love this outfit - you're working the double denim trend very well! I like the 60's boho vibe it has with the floppy hat and fur vest.

I'm still trying to figure out what trends I want to do for Spring/Summer 2013. I did the black and white and nautical trends all winter long - time for a change! You are always an inspiration to me. Whatever you decide to do, just make sure it is the right thing for you and feels comfortable. You can't live your life for other people.

Hope you don't disappear completely! I hear you though, about your concerns. Loving the outfit- as usual!

I just stumbled on your pics on Pinterest and you are killing it! Blogging is a slog. Maybe some days you could just Pinterest.
