Last year I got very very good at writing my blog every single week, though admittedly it did tail off towards the end of the year. This year, finding the time and motivation to actually sit down and write my blog has become much much harder. Take this week for example, I’m a day late … More This Was So Much Easier When I Was Lonely
This week I really didn’t want to write a blog post. I have zero motivation, no ideas that aren’t just “climate change is real, we’re killing the planet, and people are trash,” and nothing that I’d already pre-written (at least not that I want to post on my Sunday blog post).

But at the moment it’s hard. Life has changed for me, I have a new job, I’m doing new things, … More A Break From My Daily Prompts
