The Sunday Catch Up #27

Good morning! I've been in two minds whether to continue these posts…I've actually been in two minds whether to give up blogging completely to be honest. I'm not sure what it was/is but it was becoming a bit too much of a chore. I work from nine until five every week day and when I come home I just want to relax a bit. I have weekends off, but again I want to relax, see family, clean the house, spend time with Vince etc etc and I just haven't really felt like blogging at all.

I'm not sure if you noticed, but I took a week off from blogging and while I was off I managed to note down lots of blog post ideas and build a bit of a collection of things to review/feature. I spent yesterday morning taking outfit photos and although it took a really long time to get a decent shot where I wasn't looking like a right grump, it was quite enjoyable.

I think part of the problem is organisation and having a dedicated space to blog. I see so many bloggers with lovely looking desks where they work and I don't have that. I sit on my sofa on my laptop or at my dining table and I feel like I can't really concentrate properly. When I get paid I'm hoping to buy a desk for the spare room and set up a little blogging space. Somewhere where I can organise myself a bit better and keep everything I need together.

I'm also not going to put so much pressure on myself to have a daily blog post and if I don't feel like blogging one weekend then I won't. This post is getting a little bit rambly but it's something most bloggers go through I think. I want to try and include some different posts alongside regular product reviews but I'm just going to go with the flow and see where it takes me.

Do you have any advice for getting out of a blogging rut?

P.S. This blog series is carrying on because apparently all my family love to read it and they won't be happy if I discontinue it they said!


  1. I'd be totally gutted if you stopped blogging! I'm trying to learn not to put so much pressure on myself for daily posts etc too, sometimes the deadlines I impose on myself make me want to give up!

    1. Same here, need to not put so much pressure on myself!

  2. Don't stop blogging! Sometimes it's nice to take a break and I'm often in a rut but I keep on going. You'll feel better in few days. Organisation is the key. :)

  3. I love your blog! please don't stop blogging x
