I think there can be a lot of pressure to keep blogging or keep vlogging or keep producing content when you have a social media presence and people who enjoy/follow you and your content. The pressure shouldn’t be the reason to keep going, as that can be draining and stressful. What people need to realize is that online personalities have lives offline, just like everyone else. It’s okay to take a break. It’s okay to change direction. <3 It's more than okay to be kind to yourself.
When I get down on myself, I say, "What would I tell a friend who's going through a hard time?" I certainly wouldn't criticize them! I'd be kind and understanding. Then I try to take that same approach with myself.
One response to “Let’s Talk: Book bloggers and hiatuses// Where does blogging pressure come from, and how can we fix it?”
I agree. It’s all overwelming at times.
