To blog or to delete, that be the question

Over the last few week, I've been contemplating whether to continue with the blog or to  close it down. The doubt gremlins have been creeping back into my head. Unfortunately, I'm succumbing to their influences with whirling thoughts and manipulation.  As my blog reaches its first birthday, I feel as though I should fort ahead and set the gremlins on fire eradicating them to the void of nonsense.

Recently, I've found myself going into a depression and melancholy state considering the amount work I put into my blog if it’s worth continuing since only a few people read it. I am just having these thoughts spinning in my head and with doubts about whether my writing skills are up to par, or my content is uninteresting to read or the validity of my experiences.

The second option to purge the gremlins with an imaginary fire hose and to forge on with the blog. For me, my blog is my baby as I created it, and I’ve worked hard to cultivate it and would be interesting to see how it develops.  I do owe a debt to my blog because it’s helped me through some rough times last year and has given me focus and discipline. Not only that, it's given me the confidence to write and honed these skills. I’ve learned that sometimes with only a few well-chosen words need to be selected to say what I want rather than writing unnecessary words.

Personally, I am not sure what do at the moment, but for the foreseeable future; I will strive on to grow and develop my blog.  I am a tenacious bugger and will not give up without a fight. At times, I guess, everybody feels that way about their blogs at times and question their motives and doubt if it's worth continue.

Thank you to my followers, I appreciate you all and to anyone reads my blog, especially to two my blogger buddies, Little Corp Goth girl and breakinangel


  1. Just blog for you Sara! Have fun with it :)

  2. Don't write to satisfy anyone but yourself. Don't worry about who or how many people read it or whether they find the content interesting. Writing is a good skill to have, and an excellent way to purge some of our personal demons. If you enjoy it, keep doing it. If it's a chore, don't ... :)

  3. Thanks for all your support at the moment there is a lot of stuff going on in my personal, work life, and I am getting incredibly stressed about it. At the moment, I am up a height and mind working over time, stressing over everything.

  4. I would hate to see you give up on your blog now but you have to do what's right for you. I wouldn't worry about who's reading it as long as you enjoy doing it then that's all that matters. Do what makes you happy! :)

  6. Sarah, you are a super blogger and I always enjoy your posts. I first started blogging 12 years ago (those vaults are sealed!) and what's amazed me over that time is how much more fluent I've become as a writer. It really does make your brain work out.

    In 12 years I've made some super friends across the blog sphere, including yourself (and yes, we shall meet when I get back from Inverness, I am so sorry I can't do it beforehand). Some of my FB friends are from my old blog who haven't even transitioned to the newer one (mainly because we natter on FB). My current blog rather inadvertently became a way to express how I was feeling after my dad died, and the rather lumpy progress of my 2 years sabbatical.

    Insomniac is right - write for yourself. If you need a break put it on hiatus for a while and see how you feel (you've probably noticed me doing the same, and I often do it with FB). And have a virtual *HUG*

    Jane, Breaking the Angel


Life Update.

Hi, it's been a very long hiatus, not to say the least. Since my last post, a lot happened in October. I had a death in the family ...
