An explination of my Hiatus

I've been missing for a while around here. It's not you, it's me. I've just had a hard time getting into the swing of blogging lately..

Initially, it was because I had nothing of any value to write about--Nothing worth sharing, nothing I should share. Then I realized, I could post some ridiculous day of the week themed post or a "10 reasons..", but that takes half the point out of my blog. I want to blog about my life experiences and changes, not just fill pages with meaningless babble. I want good, relative content that I can use as a yearbook of my world. Quality of Quantity if you will..

Another reason of my hiatus was because I have found a lot of pressure to "keep up with the jones'" when I have to make my own content.
I need a good post? I guess I have to go out this weekend.
I need a good instagram picture! I guess I'll have to go get starbucks. Wait, I don't even like coffee!
I like that blogging encourages me to get out of my lair, but sometimes it's just not in the cards.

Some of you can relate, I'm sure. I know no one directly says "You gotta look/be your best," but let's face it, you feel like you do. The same goes for blogging. When I read through my news or instagram feeds, I see all these fun nights out, fab outfits, great dinners, ect ect... homegirl can't always do that!
My boyfirend lives almost an hour way and works afternoons/nights at the baseball field in a town even further away. We see each other 2 or 3 times a week MAX! We aren't engaged (much to my displeasure) So there are no wedding plans to recap or divulge. We are well out of that honeymoon stage, so dates consist of boring things like Five Guys.
I have an obscene amount of student loans from putting myself through college. After those are paid, I have very little play money every paycheck to do much with. I like to dress cute. I like to do fun things, but it gets hard on a budget and by yourself to do fun things besides bonding with netflix.

So sometimes, I find it's just better for me to just be silent in the blog world. Hopefully as the holidays start getting into full-force, I'll have better things to share, but for now I just wanted to say I missed you all and I'm sorry I'm a boring person.


  1. I'm right there with ya girl. Not much to say and I sure don't have a fabulous life lol :)

  2. I feel ya! Josh and I can't really afford to go out and do blogworthy things because of paying for our wedding and student loans ect. And most days that I do have extra time, I just want to stay in and watch movies because school and work are exhausting! You are definitely not alone.

  3. Don't let other people get you down. I blog to document my life, even if it's mundane. Do it for you girl!
