If you’ve ever gotten burnt out from blogging, this is a great quote to remember. Your life, your family, your happiness is what’s important in life. I’ve been struggling with Blogger Burnout and have recently realized I need to put my priorities in to perspective. I’d read an article by the NY Times regarding YHL’s burnout and break from their blog and loved the quote ‘Do I want to pour my energy into the lives of complete strangers or the people under my own roof?’ When blogging stresses you out, and is no longer a creative outlet, it’s not worth it (especially if you’re not monetized). I am definitely going to continue to improve my blogging skills, learn more about analytics and social media but I will not be posting 5-6 times/week. Behind the scenes, each DIY post takes me 2-6+ hours in total which must be rushed during naps and daylight hours (for photography reasons.) I’m re-energized and inspired to create and write while still having the ability to created off-line and not feel pressured to live for my blog. From now on, I’ll be blogging my life. Life’s too short to not be passionate about what you do.
