What am I to do? My head aches. I’m tired. I feel like running away from everything that is overwhelming me: all the busyness of life. How did life get to be so busy? One day I can do everything. One more thing? No problem. I can cope. Yes, I’d love to do that. The next I am struggling. I am not keeping up and I am feeling guilty.
Feeling guilty? Yes, I have unanswered emails and letters waiting for my attention, posts for other people I should be writing, blogging...
Blogging requires a lot of time which I haven’t had recently. I keep writing stories for my own blog, but I am getting further and further behind in reading other people’s posts and stopping to comment. This is a real give and take community so I am thinking: How can I expect other bloggers to come and read my posts and leave comments when I can’t return the favour? How can I continue to take if I have no time to give?
So I have been wondering what to do…
I could stop writing posts and leave my blog inactive.
I could just delete my blog and write for myself.
I could turn off the comments so I can’t receive what I can’t give.
Does anyone else ever feel overwhelmed by blogging? How do you manage your time? I’d love to hear any tips and suggestions before I make a decision about what to do.
Sometimes I think it would be nice to be a cat and sleep all day and not have to wonder what to do...
