Blogging (& life) Updates

Hi there! What day is it? What week is it? When’s the last time I wrote a blog post that wasn’t a workout or a “Five on Friday” post? Haha. Oops! The truth is, I WANT to blog, but it just hasn’t been coming naturally to me as of late. I think part of it is that I’ve been logging in long hours at the office, teaching normal classes, creating and promoting events and generally just having a lot of things on my plate. So, when all is said and done, the last thing I want to do is open up my laptop and try to force a thoughtful blog post. I owe you guys more than that!

I’ve also been feeling a little “blah” about blogging in general and wondering if it’s even worth it, which is really sad because this has always been such a positive hobby for me. When I think about why I feel this way, I think it boils down to the fact that my blogging stats have gone down (likely a result of the fact I don’t blog regularly anymore) so when I take the time to write a thoughtful, detailed post and then don’t see high stats I just wonder, “is it worth it? Do people even read this thing?”.

But, with that said, at the end of the day I’m not only blogging for my readers- I’m also blogging for ME, because it’s something I really do enjoy. I think I’ve just gotten out of the habit of making blogging a priority; I’m always putting something else in front of blogging so by the time I finish everything, I’ve got nothing left in me to give to blogging. And while I understand that blogging won’t always be on my “highest priority” list based on what’s going on in my life at any given moment, if I don’t ever take time to make it a priority then I won’t ever create blog posts with substance, right?! Funny how that works!

So, my goal over the next few months is to get a bit more regular with my posting. I have some blog post topics that I want to write about and I hope to be able to get my writing mojo back to be able to formulate a thoughtful discussion on them! And, since I have lots and lots of workouts to share, I’ll definitely be sharing those regularly, too. Another long-term goal I have is to have pictures to go along with the moves, but I’m not making any promises as to when I’ll get that going 😉

Also, don’t forget- I am much more active on Instagram and try to share thoughtful insights when applicable, news regarding classes & events, meals, restaurants, etc. so be sure to follow me there if you want to stay in the loop!

For those of you who still stick around- THANK YOU! Your support means so much to me- seriously. If you have any suggestions for blog post topics or anything else, I’d love for you to let me know so that I can expand upon them!
