Blog Funk


A few months ago, I remember reading more than a handfull of posts by some of my favorite bloggers discussing their own blog funks and dissatisfaction.  Most of them rebounded quickly and have continued to be some of my favorites.

Working 30-40 hours a week in retail is exhausting, I’m not going to lie to you.  I absolutely love it, but a lot of human contact means a very tiring day.  I’m kind of an introvert (I’m an INFJ, if you’re curious) so this work leaves me wanting to do a little more hibernating.

The best thing about my job is that I get to spend hours nearly every day helping people.  Maybe selling someone a rabbit vibe isn’t quite like serving them dinner at a shelter, but if I can help someone’s relationship with themselves or their partner(s) evolve, I consider that a human service.  I’m proud to do what I do.

Truthfully, this has left me with way less time for blogging.  I think it would be a good idea for me to plan out 1-2 good, meaty posts per week, in addition to regular Lazy Sundays (which, did you know, is actually a Lonely Island song!?  Legit, I had no clue).  I’m not a big time blogger, but I hope that I won’t be losing anyone if I try this schedule out.

I’m definitely in no way abandoning the Darling Mothership.  Bear with me while I adjust to this crazy awesome new life schedule??

    Sarah, you’re not losing anyone EVER! we’ll stand by you as long as you’ll be writing. It’s really heart-warming that there are such people like you who enjoy helping others on so many different levels. Food and shelter isn’t usually enough, it’s just the base, but people have more needs… and sex is one of the basics too, but it’s being tossed to the second (or third, or..) plan. I’d love to see more people enjoying their work. Thanks for being you!

    Sarah, while this is my first visit to your blog I have been blogging for a couple of years so just wanted to encourage you to hang in there. You are so right everyone at some point experiences a level of ‘funk’ for a variety of reasons. If you love this blog and what you’re writing about, that funk will surely pass.
