hello! welcome back to maggie’s doodles 💕 well, what happened? 😂 i really fell out of a blogging groove. i was going along for a while, sharing snapshots, publishing posts i’d had the ideas for for ages, doing photoshoots and collabs. but it got to the point where i felt like i’d never reach the end of my work.
you see, i had well over 500 post ideas on my phone, laptop, and notebooks combined. many of them were basic outlines and needed to be expanded upon to turn into actual posts and series.
for a bit over a year, i thought i’d appreciate having ideas surround me… but they actually weighed me down.
i got burnt out from my ideas.
i felt like i was posting more than i was because i did so much behind the scenes brainstorming! i got away from creating and started thinking about creating. it was an accident, but i had to kinda get through that funk.
idk about you, but thinking about stuff often feels like you’re doing it.
and thinking about 500 blog post ideas made me feel satisfied for a second, then tired, then unmotivated… to do any of them.
i got bored of all that inspiration. it wasn’t helpful at all.
so i was like hey, what if i put a lot more time into what i’m passionate about? like spending an hour on each featured image to make it something truly awesome, instead of following a 10 minute template? what if i take creative pictures, do new photoshoots, pour more time into my hobbies?
i was accidentally holding myself back.
the rhythm… threw me out of rhythm 😂👍
so i’m slowly, in many ways, rebuilding my life. it feels like i’m starting from the ground up.
many things are the same, but i see them in a completely new way.
and with that, my friends… i’ll talk to you again soon!
