A Blog About Nothing?

Ok people, I haven't blogged in two weeks and I really have nothing to blog about now. Here's the thing: I have been back at work M-F now for a year (exactly a year on Wednesday). I thought as I got used to being a working mom my brain would "settle" a bit eventually and I'd make some mental space to be creative and do some writing. Evidently this is not the case.

By the time I get through all the necessities of the day, it's 8:30. At that point I want to sit on the couch or read a book. Not blog. Even if during the week I come up with some ideas to write about, I've forgotten about them by the weekend. I am now thinking more seriously than ever about just stopping this because I have no real content; however at the same time that just seems wrong.

So, what are your thoughts? Should I keep it going? And if so, what do you want me to write about?


Update Feb 3rd: Thanks to everyone who left nice comments on Facebook and even a few here. I appreciate it. Today my decision was made. An old friend messaged me this:

"I was at our dance studio (in Saskatoon) and a mom was there talking about her journey with CP and Down syndrome. Anyway, she then told this other mom about this inspirational blog "trousdell five".".

So I guess that seals the deal. If a mom in Saskatoon relates I've gotta keep going, right?


  1. Yes keep going! What to write about anything, but for me more the juggling of work home life, having gone back to school, and my two other programs trying to juggle everything is interesting, but having others insight is helpful.

  2. I think you have to really consider what the blog is it to journal? Then maybe you don't necessarily need to journal as much right now. Is it to document your life for the kids to have access to when they are older? Maybe you don't have to focus as much on prose but more on thoughts and observations. Or maybe this space is a chance to do a little of both? It's really up to you.

    I'd like to see you continue, though. :)

  3. I'm in the same boat. Haven't blogged in months. Can't bring myself to delete it though!
