Random Ramblings & Giveaway

I'm a procrastinator.

I have around twenty partially written blog posts, several spotlight posts, multiple reviews - some are half written or lack substance, or they are scribbled on pieces of paper in a pile on my desk!

I feel blocked. Stymied. Burnt out.
I really need a kick in the pants, a hot poker to the ass so-to-speak!

Although I did get my reading mojo back. I'm not reading a ton of books - but at least I'm reading again. But I'm using the 50 page rule - if the book hasn't caught my interest in some way, shape, or form, then it's heading to the DNF (did not finish) pile.
Gone. Finito. Bye-bye.

Some bloggers I know have just given up, shut down their blogs. A lack of support, pressure to rate high stars etc amongst the many reasons to remove themselves from the blogging community. I don't think I'll ever reach that point, but sometimes it is nice to step away....

I'd love to know, what are your tricks for fighting burn out?
Leave me a comment (please include contact email address) with your advice or just say hi, and I'll pick one winner to receive a $5 Amazon gift card!!


  1. it happen to all of us at one point and the solution also differ... the only advice i can give you is don't worry and don't add stress on yourself. try to do something different ( a week end off, a new hobby ( crafting one are teh best) and then firsdt focus on book you are sure to love ( favourite author, serie syou started and loved) to go step by step then you should feel "h&ppy" again not stressed and teh inspiration should come back

    you are not alone, remember that


    1. Awww, thank you for your lovely words @miki. I like the idea of taking some time out for crafting, I might make some bookmarks or gift cards :)
      Thanks for the advice, and good luck for the giveaway!

  2. I don't have any words of advice since I'm in the same spot as you. I just keep starting a new document and trying again. Hopefully something will stick if I keep at it.


I'd love to hear your thoughts, so please don't hesitate to leave a comment :)
