I’ve posted 500 times since I started my blog.
Back in July 2014, it was hard to believe I would have written that much, but I have and I’ve loved every minute, every word, and every photo I’ve chosen to share.
But where do I go now?
Writing about our trip around Australia was easy. Writing about our new home has also been easy and as I hit the publish button on my last post (Feeling Knackered) it took me by surprise when a system message told me “You’ve made 500 posts on Clare’s Cosmos.” (Known as Clare & Dean prior to July last year.)
Of late, I have been so busy with other tasks I didn’t even realise I was approaching this monumental blogging milestone. Beyond setting up our new home, I’ve also been trying to find a job and this takes up a lot of my time. Writing job applications, submitting them and crossing my fingers, hoping I’ve not made any misatkes or tpyos (ha, ha – just kidding).
But job applications are hard work and time-consuming. Then there are the interviews, though I must say I’ve not had too many of them. It’s not always the case that you hear back from a prospective employer no matter how good your application is, or how perfect you think you are for the job – or visa versa.
To be perfectly honest, when it comes to my blog I feel that, for the first time, I’m struggling. I’m struggling to find inspiration, struggling to find time, though while I am being perfectly honest, there is always time. What I am struggling with is finding a new direction.
I feel as though I need something new to write about, but what that is eludes me like the last tendrils of a dream that drifts away as the first light of a new day draws me into consciousness. I feel it right there on the edge of my mind, but like wafting smoke, I’m unable to grasp it.
Hopefully I find it soon and continue to share my thoughts and creativity. Hopefully before I know it, I’ll be racking up post number 1,000.
By all means, if you have a suggestion, please leave a comment.
