The Truth Behind Being a Blogger

Real talk: I haven’t really been into blogging lately. Some time around the holidays, I just felt like I was running out of steam. All year I was really good about posting twice a week, I was excited about my content, I was enthusiastic about sharing on social media…but then all of a sudden, I started feeling a little bit blah about it. Maybe it’s a little bit of burnout or maybe it’s a lack of inspiration due to the grey winter weather (seriously, I hate the cold), but blogging isn’t really all that fun for me right now.

***BUT! Don’t worry. This isn’t me about to tell you that Ampersand is over. It’s totally not. But I always try to be honest & authentic here with you so I figured I’d let you know what’s going on. Also, I thought it would be a good opportunity to shed some light on what it’s really like being a blogger (hint: it’s not as glamorous as it seems). Of course there are some not so good parts, but there are a lot of great parts too. So read on to find out the real truth about being a blogger.

(Side note: Seriously though, thank you to all my dedicated readers who keep coming back here week after week. Even when I get frustrated with blogging, I’m really humbled that you guys read what I write & even like it!! So thank you thank you thank you. You guys are the best).
