Delete?

I've been blogging 3 years now and for the most part I love it. I finally found something that I enjoy doing and I am quite good at but every now and then I get the urge to delete it all and run away.


I currently have 4 of my own and I have to admit its getting hard to work on them all and my freelance work. I only work about 20 hours a week and priority goes to me freelance we some weeks leave me little time for the others. The issues I have is that I actually make money from my blogs so I don't want to give it up but sometimes it gets overwhelming and I get a little head in sand like.


I keep thinking to myself that this could all end tomorrow and people will stop reading what I write and forget all about me. Can you tell I have abandonment issues!


Would people really miss me if I wasn't here in the bloggosphere? Would someone else just take my place?


I have really lost my confidence and inspiration at the moment and I'm not sure where to find it.


If you see it send it back please.

  1. I'd definitely miss you!! I totally get the being too busy for your own blog part and wanting to bury your head n the sand (I wishes I could sometimes!). But don't go!!

  2. I'll be honest here, I wouldn't miss ANYONES blog if they disapeared, reading blogs to me is a bit of light entertainment, like dipping into a magazine...there are so, so, SO many blogs out there that one would quickly replace another. If you disappeared of twitter, well, that would be a different story!!!! Having spent a lot of time with you, I consider you a friend and whilst I don't read your (or anyones!) blog religiously, I would certainly missed you if you disappeared forever!!

  3. I would miss reading, however, if it's feeling overwhelming maybe try and give yourself a break, even just for a few days. I'm sure you will miss it and will come back to it.

  4. I would definitely miss you and your blog, New Mummy was one of the first I started reading! I know exactly what you mean. I often think about stopping and doing something else with my time and then something reassuring will happen such as a nice message from someone which changes everything again. I think we've seen the blogging world change so much that it's hard to keep up with the changes and like you, I wonder if anyone would miss my blog given there are so many out there now. A break always helps - you can remember what you enjoy about it then. Stay away from the delete button!

    1. It has changed a lot and when I see that over 3000 are on the Tots I think will they notice If I'm not here.

      I am staying away from the delete button at the moment x

  5. I suffered the same as you recently and wrote a post about hitting the delete key but got through it and in doing so re-discovered what I love about blogging.

    Someone suggested a 'blog holiday' as a possible cure and thats always an option but if you do make sure you come back because you belong in the Bloggosphere x

  6. You could have a blogging holiday as is suggested.

    I often feel low about my blogging as no one comments yet I comment on blogs.

    Don't give up I will drop by x

    1. People hardly comment anymore, I used to get loads and most of my posts don't get any.

  7. Just coming back to this as was bugging me....actually, I know why I don't get fed up of the whole blogging thing..it's because I DO take regular breaks...every 6 weeks or so, I won't read/write do anything bloggy...glad others have suggested that, it works for me!!

    Big Hugs xxxx

  8. I have been blogging for a year and started my second blog a few months ago, I find it hard to manage two so I can understand how you struggle with four! If I lose my inspiration then I just focus on other things until it comes back, and it always does! x
