Why I Have Been Slacking on Blogging

This is actually a funny post to write ’cause I’m trying to justify the lack of contents in my blog for the past few weeks. Don’t get me wrong — I visit my blog everyday and I reply to comments and emails everyday but I literally have no time to properly write a blog post because:

Malay dramas

Oh my god. Ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod. You don’t even wanna know how many times I repeat watch 7 Hari Mencintaiku. If you’re an international reader of my blog, it’s a novel-based Malay drama that follows the novel to the T. I’m very picky when it comes to watching Malay dramas and it’s actually hard to find a drama that I would spend hours watching but 7 Hari Mencintaiku takes the cake.

I can spend a week finishing two seasons of tv shows while still manage to have 5 posts up but I couldn’t do that with Malay dramas. There’s just something with quality Malay dramas that get you sucked into its world and what’s a blog anyway?


For some reasons Khuzairi reminds me of my boyfriend. Y’know, the whole lot of liking a girl since she was 13 years old and not being able to move on or find another ’cause ‘she’s the one.’

I have all the good blog post ideas planned for next year

I have a few blog posts that I have brainstormed on that were supposed to be published this week but I thought that I would save them for 2017. I need my blogging mojo back so I can start writing my upcoming posts but I know I couldn’t get it back until after I move on from binge-watching on dramas.

There’s no sun!

I forgot the last time I turn on the air-conditioner because it’s been raining 5 days out of the week and the sweater weather is perfect to get back in bed and take a 5 hour nap during the day which I find myself doing a lot of.

The sun is nowhere to be found so I can’t take out my camera to take photos for my blog. I know I promised that I would use more photos I take myself and less stock photos but dear weather, please cooperate with me, will ‘ya? A girl has photos to take for her blog.

I’m not in the mood to write

Like I mentioned in this post, the first rule of writing is asking yourself if you’re in the mood to write and the answer is I’m not. I have a lot of ideas but my heart’s not into writing right now. Blogging is not my job and it’s also something that I wouldn’t force myself doing because I’m afraid that I would hate doing it once I start to feel like it’s a chore. I enjoy blogging as a hobby and I like to keep it that way.

So these are the reasons why there’s a major lack of contents in my blog. One more reason that is worth mentioning is I found a new theme that I like so I’ve been spending a lot of my time drooling over it. I know that I promised to only buy a theme if I completed my 2017 book challenge but I’m not so sure if I can wait that long. I’m in love with my current theme but I can’t stop falling in love with another. Tsk.

Have you planned blog posts for 2017 like I do?
