Why My Blog Has Been Lacking Content Lately
Sometimes our health, both out physical and mental health, gets in the way of the things we love the most.
A bit part of my blog has revolved around mental health and my mental illnesses in particularly but I enjoy creating content around my other passions just as much.
However, if you are a frequent visitor of my blog you will know there has been a distinct lack of content all together. This isn’t due to me no longer wanting to create content or falling out of love with blogging by any means, it comes down to a decline in my mental health and the circumstances surrounding my mental health.
This December it will be 2 years since I last worked full-time and the last couple of years have been very up and down with lots of lows and only a few highs.
Getting better has been my main priority but so far I haven’t had much success and being unable to work and therefore unable to earn money I am limited on what I can and can’t do more than usual and also what I can and can’t buy. Money isn’t the only thing though, the anxiety and panic I struggle with plays a huge part in getting out the house and much much more without going into loads of detail.
This has a huge effect on my blog because my content which includes; Fashion & Style, Photography and Travel means I need to be able to go places and also buy at least some things to create new content. This is why you will have noticed the recent fashion & style posts have been collaborations where I have been gifted clothes and I haven’t been travelling anywhere for both travel and photography posts or getting out much at all to be able to food & drink posts either.
It is frustrating because I never wanted any of this with my mental health and it is stopping me from being able to do the things I love including creating content, photography, playing football, going to the gym, swimming, socialising and even things I don’t particularly love like working and earning a living to fund my hobbies and passions.
Even through it all I have never let go of my dreams or given up on getting better. I still try my best to do what I can when I am able to because I know one day when all of this is behind me I will be able achieve all the things I want to and more and get back to doing all the things I love.
Just know I will be trying my best to create content as and when I can but it may be few and far between for the foreseeable future. I do feel as though with my current therapist things are looking in a positive direction and I hope they continue in the same fashion and I can get back to where I want to be.
