My Relationship With Blogging

I took a break from blogging for more than a week because I started getting tired of it. I decided to be active again on blogging when I quit my job a couple of months ago because I have nothing else to do. I was posting everyday and I was having fun with the whole process of it but I lose interest on things so quickly, that me being active on blogging for months became so tiring, it wasn’t because I was drained or it felt like a chore, I just lost my interest plus I was having my depression session at the same time. But I never stopped writing even when I was taking a break, I was just too lazy to post it, I lost the interest in the process of blogging. Blogging is not a two-step process that when you write you just hit publish right away, there’s more to it and I lost interest in doing all of that. So, I needed to step away from it for a while to regain that interest then I kind of started comparing it to my relationships.


My relationship with blogging is like any other relationship I have with the people in my life. I love them but I need space from them, I need some time away from them. I need to regain interest to spend time with them, and to actually miss talking to them. And, I guess it’s also like that for me when it comes to blogging, I love it but when I do it in a long consistent time it becomes “boring” because it’s repetitive. And if you keep doing things over and over again it becomes uninteresting to the point it becomes dreadful and I don’t want that to happen. Distance makes the heart grow fonder right? 😉

I had lots of trouble keeping my blogging schedule for the longest time, and I still don’t know how to handle this blog for now but all I’m saying is expect that I will have this sudden breaks every now and then lol.

Anyways, I missed this space so I will get back to reading your blogs yay! 🤗

  1. I’ve been scared to admit that blogging meant the same to me very much like how blogging meant to you when I read this post, and I realized I’m kind of scared to admit it. Possibly because if I admitted that I wasn’t passionate enough to blog consistently unlike others, I’d lose full interest one day, but this post kind of reminds me that even if I struggle being consistent it doesnt mean I’m not passionate enough, sometimes we just need a break and that’s totally okay. We all need those. And what’s amazing is that we keep coming back despite being gone for a while. Such a good read, thank you for this! Let’s keep writing! 😊🌻😌

    • Yes, let’s keep writing. I totally get you, being consistent takes a lot of effort that is why sometimes we just really need some time away from the things that we love to be passionate again. 🤗


  2. Joana, as other commenters have shared, what you expressed is certainly relatable. The two words that immediately jumped off your post were “time” and “space.” Time and space keep us mentally and physically refreshed––enabling us to recharge our batteries, heighten our sense of self-care, and return to our daily lives in a positive mindset.

  3. I never considered blogging as a metaphor for relationships but I can see it now: a clever post and an enlightening one; i take a mid-week break and it works except when three days drift into four then five ….

  4. Joana, I get you completely and know the feelings you’ve shared here. Consistency with blogging has also been my longest struggle as well. What you described is perfect actually. It feels like the passion gets lost when it becomes a forced chore to do, rather than a joy to create.

    Take those breaks when you need to. Those of us who enjoy reading your writing will be here when you return. Thank you for sharing your heart. I love how you expressed it! ♥ Sending love to you in hopes that you are well.
