Erin Talks: blogging rut

I’m in a blogging rut and it’s getting ugly. I have so many blog ideas that I planned for my blog this month but I’m just not feeling it right now. I try not to make blogging a job that needs me to meet deadlines on every single post but rather a hobby that I can choose when to post according to my schedule. Not that I’m busy with other things. I’m probably the most unbusy person in the world right now.  

I have 3 beauty posts in planning that need me to put makeup on but good god I am so lazy to get ready and setup my camera equipments. I hope I’m able to do so this week and probably publish them some time next week. Who says being a blogger is easy? You are your own content creator, editor, photographer, publisher, PR liaison, and so much more.  

I’m having a bit of identity crisis with my blog. I’m stuck in between publishing perfectly curated posts and writing whatever my heart and interest desire. How does one choose a niche for one’s blog? I know that I am a lifestyle blogger but sometimes I get too overwhelmed by the vast amount of contents I want to create. I’m trying to alternate my contents between the 3 main categories which are beauty, blogging, and lifestyle so I won’t publish the same category of post twice in a row. All in all, I need to take a few days off blogging so I can come back not feeling like blogging is a chore that I hate to do.

I don’t know if you noticed but I didn’t post my September favourites. I’m thinking of abandoning that series altogether because my favourites for previous months were mostly tv shows and favourites posts are usually intended for beauty products which I don’t wear at all on normal days so I don’t have new favourites in a short span of time. If I do have new beauty favourites I’m probably going to name the post something like “Beauty products I’m loving” etc.  

Whilst everyone is busy with school, I’m at home rotting into an absolute of nothingness with my tv shows. By the way! My dad has finally given me green light to get a driver’s license after four years since I turned seventeen. Four goddamn years of waiting. He told my mom that I can drive to campus everyday but there’s a catch — I can’t drive alone. I need to have a friend that can carpool with me but no one in my residential area is studying in my university. I’m not sure what I’m going to do about that, though. I’m still not sure if I want to drive to and fro Shah Alam. It’s a 40 minute drive twice a day! Thank goodness I won’t have to think about it this year because I’m going back to school next year.  

So what are you guys up to these days? Are you in a blogging rut like I am?
