Blog journey

After more than 3 years of blogging, I seem to be running out of things to write about. Unlike a food or fashion blog, mine lacks a theme. It simply follows the rhythm of my life.

I used to hammer away on the keyboard every morning, sometimes in the evening too. It was once the perfect outlet for my angst-filled years as a single mother. Then it served as a travelogue during my globe-trotting days. While it used to keep track of my races and action-filled days, the blog clearly shows that I've mellowed with the passage of time.

I may have lost that passion for writing for I am struggling to keep the blog afloat. Or perhaps it simply means it's time to reinvent myself.

i started reading your blog just last year and after reading this entry, i clicked on your earliest year to have a read.

things looked more interesting then but i'd hope u keep this blog with your sole will. if u're tired about it, ditch it, though we'd love to know how u're doing via this little space. live for yourself and no others.

Oh.. i so understand how u feel.. I feel like my blog is so uninteresting sometimes.. but yours is not, I like reading about the small, unrelated things you write about your life.. it makes me feel like i know you better and it is interesting to peek into another person's everyday life! Keep it up pls...

I love reading your blog, always have done. I enjoy reading about your life/opinions/thoughts/travels and looking at your fab pictures.
I think we all perhaps feel less passionate sometimes, let's face it, some of us are hard core long time bloggers! I just wish I had more time to blog, I used to blog every day.
But I hope you carry on. I love your blog style, but it's your prerogative if you do wish to change things...

It's very normal to have some "dry writing days" after blogging for a while he he...not to worry...inspiration will come back. :-)))

Maybe, maybe a break will do wonder... and you may come back more energized than before.

I know exactly how you feel... sometimes it comes from lack of inspiration...sometimes it's just a phase....sometimes you simply "outgrow" blogging... Whatever you choose is understandable.

Ting - Your blog is like my morning cup of coffee. But well... if it no longer gives you joy to maintain it then.

I know what you mean. Half the time I have to sit and crack my brain just to figure out what to write.

Blur Ting said...

Hey guys, thanks for the encouragement. It's probably one of those days or weeks when I don't feel so inspired to write. But when I have something interesting to say, I will surely blog about it. Hopefully I can continue to update everyday!

Yes Blur, do update every day. Nobody can live Tiger Woods' sort of life -- and few wld want to be so tawdry. But every life is interesting to someone else, even if it isn't to the owner!

When u get tired, just write 140 words, as opposed to 140 characters for Twitter :-)
