Now Blog, Lets Get Personal: Something To Say

Do you ever sit looking at a blank screen WANTING to write something, but feeling like you have nothing to say? That has been me for the past few months. I’ve been searching for what to talk about and something to say for a while, but nothing comes out of my fingers.

I think this is a feeling everyone has at some point or another. Wanting to have something to say, but not knowing how to say it. Or feeling like the more you talk about it, the more annoying it is for those reading or listening. The biggest obstacle for me is feeling like no one cares about my news. I know that isn’t true most of the time, but when I talk about a big thing that happened recently, I feel like I’m being selfish.

But you know what?

Sometimes it’s okay to feel like you’re being selfish.

Because chances are, you’re not being as selfish as you feel.

Something to say - totally flexible

What do I feel like I’m being selfish about? A lot has changed the past few months. The biggest and most exciting is that the husband and I got custody of a 1 year old little boy. This has thrown our whole world upside down. He’s very sweet and super smart and I’m excited that in just a couple months we will be able to officially adopt him. Being a mom is something I’ve always wanted, and this little boy has made all that happen. This whole adoption process has been so emotionally, physically and financially draining. But every time that little goober claps or laughs, I know it will all be worth it.

As this change continues, I find myself rediscovering how to balance wife life, mom life, fandom life, blogger life, and work life. That’s a lot of lives for one person. It seems that the blogger life has be the one to suffer most. If y’all have any advice, I’ll gladly take it! 😉

With this new life to balance, I’m also trying to figure out where I want to take this blog. Will it be a nerd!mom blog? Maybe I’ll try my hand at some reviews or some nerd crafty how to’s. Whatever I decide to do here and whichever way I choose to go, I hope you’ll be patient and bear with me and stick with it. Sometimes its just time for something a little different.

Now that you know what’s been going on with me and the reason for the radio silence, drop a comment below and let me know what is happening in your life! I’d love to catch up a bit!

  • Hey gorgeous, I just want to say CONGRATULATIONS, first of all! That little boy is so lucky to have you! And I totally understand where you’re coming from with this post. Clearly I’ve had to cut out my blogger persona as other parts of my life have gotten chaotic.

    In the end, whatever you decide to do with this space is 100% up to you. Do what feels true to yourself. That’s the reason we’re all here – because of YOU. And we’ll all stick around to see the exciting things unfolding in your life <3

    • Thanks BB! Making other things priority isn’t a bad thing. I just want to get back in the habit and figure things out. Outline some things I may want to try and see what sticks. <3

  • B.

    How exciting! Congrats on becoming a Mom! When it comes to the blog, remember that this is YOUR space. That means you can write about whatever you want! One day maybe it’s DIY, the next a review, then a few days of silence. It’s whatever you want to make of it!

    • Thank you! I’m very excited. I just feel like this blog has gotten away from me a bit. I’m kind of feeling like it will somewhere for me to step away and decompress through. Figuring out what I want to do next has always been a challenge. 🙂

  • Heather

    Massive congratulations! I know you’ve been working towards becoming a mom for a while now and it is fantastic to hear that your dreams have come true! 🙂

    • Thank you! It really is a dream come true. And he’s such a good little kids, which makes it that much better.

    Wow, a huge congratulations on the adoption! That is amazing! And as a fellow mom, I totally understand how having a child turns your entire life upside down. Priorities definitely have to switch. But the beauty of blogging, at least personal blogging as a hobby, is that it is entirely YOURS. Your schedule, your content – you steer the ship. 🙂

    • Thank you! I feel like everything is up in the air and I can’t catch everything. Luckily, things have calmed down in the past month or so and I think I can finally find my footing.

  • Congratulations again on the adoption. I’m so excited for you and for whatever you plan on doing. Though I would love to see you post here, as a nerd mom, or anything else, definitely don’t feel obligated to do anything for us. Take as much time as you need and we’ll be here when you can/want to be. <3

  • Congrats!!! And also, take your time to figure it out. Things change and evolve. So, it’s okay to take time for having the blog you feel you are more comfy with. 🙂
