Just thinking…

I miss you…. I really do.

After a little over 4 years of blogging, The Cove is far more than just a website I own. It’s a bit like my home away from home. A place where I have friends, and even some sort of a cyber-family.

But lately, I’ve been feeling like I’m spiralling down. This feeling seems to be confirmed by the drastic drop in my statistics page. I don’t like to check these too much, but I can’t deny the inactivity going on.

It’s kind of sad.

Life isn’t bad, and I don’t feel depressed, or especially bad. But wether it is the Holiday rush kicking in, or the fact that days are getting shorter and shorter (I can’t wait until December 21st, when we’ll start to get more day light everyday) truth is that I feel like I’ve been sucked in a blackhole.

It’s been a weird couple of weeks. I won’t go into details, because I don’t feel like ranting or whining. But things are moving at work, and although our paychecks might get raised considerably sooner than later, it means more and more tasks to learn and perform.

I have little, if any time to check my blog during daytime. And at night, I find myself too tired to post interesting stuff, less answering comments and reading others’ posts. I disappoint myself, and I feel that I disappoint you too.

I probably just think too much. I should just wait and see.

And I hope you’ll stick around…. Because I have not run out of ideas, yet! πŸ˜‰

  1. All though my stats have never been interesting and I don’t really have a following, I do recognize the guilt that comes with neglecting your blog baby. You really need those awesome evenings filled with a whole lot of nothing (and in my case, lots of tea) to find the right words and vibe for a satisfying blogpost. Forget december. 2020 will be better!

    1. Thank you for the kind words, Epi πŸ™‚ I agree, 2020 will most likely come with good surprises. This year has been tiring with its share of bad news. Maybe it’s just the build up of negative that is playing with my inspiration and motivation at the moment… All the best to you with the new year to come! xx

  2. My stats are down too. But I still read your post and enjoy your blog. So do what you gotta do to manage your time and get through your days. We’ll all still be around for our daily visits to the Cove.

  3. I can relate. My stats have dropped too but in fairness I’m not blogging as much these days or interacting as much. It’s not that I’m not interested, I am, but life’s just so busy. And I’m learning that it’s okay. Hope you’re doing well C. Hugs from down under xx

  4. I hate looking at my stats….I did one of these award posts the other day…someone had asked questions linked to my stats, so I checked it out and noticed December has plummeted. But people are bound to be busy at this time of year.

    Don’t you worry about a thing! Blogging goes up and down.
    Very strangely I noticed that last year my stats were very high on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. So I am trying to work on something interesting to offer for those days.

  5. Dearest Catherine… Never feel guilty about our blog and real life. Real life has no other choice but to take place and keep moving.
    Blogging should be enjoyable, and not felt like a second job.
    When you are up for it, we’ll all be here waiting for you.
    One another note…You maybe suffering from (SAD), Seasonal Affective Disorder. I wrote a 2 part post with regards to this on my “Mindfulness Monday” series.

    The second part was posted on Tuesday of a variety of things you can do to help fight it.
    I hope this helps.
    Hang in there, Dear! πŸ’“

  6. Consider this. At this time of year most people are in the same boat as you…they don’t post nor comment as often; or they may outright not have the time to go check the blog. I’ve watched this phenomenon every year. I call it ‘winter/year end ennui’. It happens now and then. I’m not a stat follower, but I can certainly understand the disappointment if one has put themselves out there and only crickets are chirping as response. I’m glad “the Cove” still exists and I check in most every day, although I may not comment. I have the blahs as well (I have Seasonal Affective Disorder) and it’s difficult to become enthusiastic about much at all. As the other commentor said “True friends will stick around”. Ride out the wave. It’s temporary.
