You might have noticed this blog has been a bit quieter this month. Actually, if you’ve noticed, you’re probably one of my six regular readers so HELLO.
I wish there was a real reason as to why this has been the case (Ta daaa I’m pregnant! Woo hoo I’ve been working on a top secret project! Oh yay I’ve been on a fitness mission and I’m now a teeny weeny size 8) but no, I’m afraid the truth is a dull: I’ve been a bit busy.
Work has been busy, life has been busy, and if I’m honest, every time I sat down to write a blog post, I was either too knackered (and ended up curling up on the sofa, drinking wine and watching The Good Wife on Netflix) or I would freeze – suddenly unable to think of anything I could write. What could I possibly have to say that people would want to read?
“You haven’t blogged in a few weeks so whatever you write next better be really good” a mean little voice in my head would say.
I would think of an idea – like the post I started writing about millennials and how I think I was born in the wrong decade, leading onto talk about how I am in fact (wait for it) millenni-JEL of those pesky 20 somethings who are all digital natives and have the world as their oyster. But as quickly as I’d think of the idea and start writing it, I’d tell myself it was a terrible idea and no one would possibly want to read it.
One particularly anxiety-ridden evening (*shakes fist at last Tuesday*) I considered deleting my blog and social media accounts. Ha – the drama!
But don’t worry, I’m only that person very occasionally and I don’t often let her out or even talk about her. Dramatic anxious Alison. I’m usually happy Alison, brimming with creative ideas and the confidence to put them out there. So anyway, here I am. Writing and pressing ‘publish’. HEY THERE!
