Caught Up in the Rapture of the Blogging World

You get a vision of something you’ve always wanted to do, maybe it was delayed by fear or the lack of necessities to carry it through. But the vision is clear and loud to the point it speaks to you non-stop. That’s what my experience has been like on this journey of blogging. It was filled with excitement and this adrenaline rush flowed through once I gave fear an eviction notice. But something changed along the way, something that put a pause to the powerful thrust of emotions I had regarding blogging.

“I’m just gonna have fun, no pressure, just my truth and simply just fun” is what I held onto in the beginning. Overtime, I’ve connected with other bloggers and began doing research and it wasn’t that anymore. It wasn’t fun, it felt like it became a job, a vehicle for competition and an overall headache. I went from this is “therapeutic for me ” to “how am I gonna get this money.” The pressure was on but my desire began to fade away.

Now, I’ve gone through some transitions.. again and it disrupted my flow of trying to be consistent and gain readers. Trying to stay afloat of it all, I found myself in a pool of blogging groups, engaging in DM threads that I could keep count of, and a tired mine and finger tips that simple didn’t want to exist in the blogging world. With all of this happening, I got caught up in the rapture.

As the old folks would say, I’m trying to get my groove back. The lighter for my flame is flickering but I’m still pressing on. I’ve learned something crucial during my down time from blogging. One thing that I learned is that it’s only the beginning and there’s no rush to push out my vision. The vision never died, I just need to clear off the fog and cob webs. As I’m learning to be patient with myself, I hope that if this resonated with you in any way you will find that same patience within in.

As always,

Leave Inspired

      1. You are so very welcome.
        Progress. It’s sometimes too slow, taking it’s sweet sweet time. Moving unhurriedly, but changing you forever. Little by little, one day at a time, you’ll get to where you’re going. Just believe in you the process. Believe in your progress.


  1. Such a great post! My blog took some transitions itself (seemingly almost every day). But if it’s a part of the vision you can’t help but keep pressing on.

  2. Good read. The fact that you wrote this piece is a step forward by itself. As you said, there is no rush in the vision. We now live in a world of nonstop content and blogging is a thing. What is important is being genuine. Do not force anything. Your readers will appreciate your authenticity.

  3. There is no rush blogging will always be here and I don’t think it will go anywhere. It will evolve and we have to evolve with it but the basics of it will never go away.

  5. Great read! And I think all bloggers have been there a time or two! Just take your time getting back in the swing of things. I am learning to do things my way rather than the “bloggers world” way

  6. blogging can seem like a chore and there is nothing wrong with taking the time you need to decompress from any task.


  7. Sometimes I think I’ve planned blog post ideas out ahead in advance, then I end up feeling inspired to do something different when the time comes – and just follow my instinct. When I started blogging is was for my own amusement, the fact that others appreciate it is a bonus…..I guess it’s easier to approach it like this unless you’re trying to drive it as a business šŸ˜Š

    1. Yeah, I was definitely caught up in trying to make it a business. When I started it was just for my own fun and healing actually. When I started to get involved with blogging groups and such I lost my focus. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and comment. I truly appreciate it šŸ¤—
