Dealing with Writers Block and Self Doubt



I do an English degree. I write, a lot. So writer's block isn't exactly a new thing to me, but that doesn't mean that it doesn't get frustrating. Recently, especially since having essays due for my degree: writing is connected with deadlines to me at the moment, and I don't want that.

I blog as a hobby and I honestly love doing it. But I sometimes feel like I struggle to come up with new and exciting or relevant blog posts. I question whether it's good enough? Are my photos good enough? Being in such a creative community is amazing, but it does make it hard when I have times like this where I'm struggling to think about what I actually want to write about, I get so frustrated with myself because I want to better myself. 

I want to remind myself, and anyone else feeling the same, that you don't have to post every week. You shouldn't have to feel like you need to compete, especially if this is just a hobby to you. Don't just write a post because you think you have to or just want to get something up. Create because you want to. Create what you love, take your time with it and make sure it's something you take pride in! And this should just be an outlook on blogging, but I want a more relaxed and calm outlook on my work life in general. 

So, I guess this is just a self- reminder, and a reminder to any of you who need it: You're doing great, be proud of yourself and what you do and cut yourself some slack.

  1. I really feel like I needed to read this post!! I'm always doubtful about my blog and whether it's good enough. Sometimes it helps knowing that everyone can feel that way from time to time xx
