Blogging "Burn Out"
I've hit that point. That point when you question whether or not you want to continue what it is that you're doing. You question whether or not you have the time or energy or resources to do it. And you know that if you stop it now, you won't pick it up again (at least, not for a long time).
Blogging the past few months has been a great experience. I have loved being more creative, putting myself out there, and learning so much about photo editing, writing, fashion, style, and more. I know I have a long ways to go, but it has been a rewarding experience. However, I'm at that point in the summer where my priorities are taking over. I have a teaching job now that will require all of me--my heart, my brain, my energy, my time. I want very badly to be that super woman who you see all over the blogosphere: the woman who can balance a full-time job, a family, a spouse, friends, crafting, AND blogging. I often wonder, "How do they do it? And how can I learn?"
So, I'm at a standstill. I'm not happy with where my blog is now (even though I am proud of how far I've come in such a short time), but I have major plans to improve it. The problem is, do I have the time and the energy to do it?
Have you ever been burnt out? What have you done to fix it? Did you let go of some activities, even though they were important to you, or did you push yourself to make it happen because it makes you happy?
I think I want to prove to myself that I can do this. Even during my first year of teaching. Because what better time to document my life than when I am moving out and everything is changing?
I apologize for the lack of energy and posts the past week or two, but I hope you can forgive me :) I could use any and all advice and would love feedback. What would YOU like to see at The Modern Austen? I appreciate your help!
