I've been on a blogging hiatus for the last, I don't know, 6 weeks or so. When I committed to two posts a week I had every intention of keeping up with that. For a while I was able to, but I haven't posted at all since Cooper's birthday. I am not sure there is a reason. Sort of like the snowball effect that I wrote about regarding exercise, not posting just sort of snowballed on me. I didn't set out to take a hiatus, it just sort of happened.

As I have said on here many times, being creative is hard for me. Even when I am just writing about everyday life, most of the time it's hard for me. Words rarely flow out with ease. Then add on top of that my desire to not just blog to be blogging, it makes is that much more difficult. I am thinking through what I want my blog to look like. I may start over somewhere else, I may continue right here (sort of a grand re-opening), or I may just give it up and try to write/be creative some other way. I don't know. We'll see what comes of it. But for now I am not making any promises.

Do you ever have trouble writing? What do you do to get back on track?

I will be sad if you stop blogging but I also understand. I just blog about my crazy kids. I think of it more as a memory book for them and not so much for other people. I hope you will keep blogging.

Thanks, Heather. Comments like these and knowing that some people do read the blog make me want to keep going. I just need to figure out how to go about it.

If you figure out the answer Jeremy, let me know! I go through times where it is easy to write and then times where I have no clue how to put words together. When I have taken a break and then gotten back into it, it usually is as simple as just making the time to do it. And I'm even better about it when I actually schedule time to do it. I used to blog at my lunch break, but I'm taking less of a lunch break now, so we'll see when I can work it in!
