Information overload

Hey readers,

This week has been a funny old week for me mentally. I seem to go through some weeks evaluating and reflecting who I am or what am I doing? Probably no dealt that I am over thinking everything and wonder what I could have done to be different.
Sometimes I get caught up with all the information I see online and yeah it is my choice, I go and click. It draws you in as there are so many wonderful and knowledge people out there. You start comparing yourself which I knowis natural but to what extend is healthy?!
I have an obsessive mind. I an autisitic and OCD so therfore more inclined to swing that way. Black and white thinking and trying to take it all in.  Which then makes me go a bit crazy and mad at myself. Why do I take things so seriously, I need to remember why I blog. I have a choice in what I want to do, it’s not a job. I think it is because I feel the blogosphere is so competitive. People are all about SEO or moz links or some kind of shit like that. It sucks the fun out of blogging. I want to hear about people’s ideas or raw feelings not bullshit about numbers. It is the same over Instagram with people talking about themes and scheduling times to get more likes. So much for the spontaneous shots that get caught up in th then moment that are just fun to share. Nothing calculated. It feels like it is back in the playground sometimes. It saddens me that authenticity seems to be going and it is all business like minded people wanting numbers.
For me it was a void to fill in as I was going some heavy stuff in my life when I first started out.  It distracted me from the pain and hurt. I really enjoy blogging on the whole so I am just going go with it, wing it. I’m going to try my hardest to not read into too much information out there. Just got to fall back in love and write.

Cheers for reading X

P.s. What is wrong with a hashtag on Pinterest. God I love a good hashtag 😉

  1. What a brilliant and valid post!
    I couldn’t have said it better myself Hun.
    There seems to be calculations and rules for everything in blogging. I was interested in a blogging opportunity this week but because my trust flow score wasn’t 11 or more, I couldn’t be considered. I find stuff like that really annoying!!! Hope you’ve got your blogging mojo back! Xxx

  2. I’m the same lovely. I have an obsessive mind and that’s partly why I’m having the CBT. When it comes to blogging, I blog about once a week because it takes me a week to do one post because I write it, then re-write it, then re-write again but I am never satisfied with it. My mojo is on holiday as well I think lol X

    1. I can understand that. I have done cbt before and had good results. Though I have to keep at it but if you are systematic in your behaviour you can adapt. I hope it helps you. I am not a perfectionist in the traditional sense about all my words being emaculate (I am rubbish at grammar) It is mor the thoughts and over analysing what people thing. But can understand your perspective X

  3. My best posts are those that I don’t think about. That I write on my phone. That are the raw emotion that you are saying – blogging is my therapy. Though on the other hand I am selective on what I post on IG, my “theme” however is my life, which in turn is my boys. For a time I had to use my camera to do that but then I got a phone and I love my IG feed even more now. The blogosphere is very competitive and people guard those ideas like gold I think – I’d share my raw ideas with you but I have none at the moment my brain is mush with the move. I can talk technical with the best of them, I’m rubbish at it – but I can talk it! Thanks for linking with #effitfriday and if you ever want a non-technical blogging chat shout out!
