I have been brainstorming a nice post to write for weeks now. A discussion post? A review? A book tag? A list of books? I haven’t been able to choose, or been able to write the post, and part of it is related to the fact that I, as usual, have been reading very little. When I don’t read avidly, I usually can’t publish posts often because, truth be told, there’s not much to write about.
But the other reason is related to the fact that I think I’m in a blogging slump, and have been for months now. I’d like to think it’s related to me not reading, but I feel like that’s not the full story. Stress doesn’t help much, either, and I feel like I should tell you guys that it’s also the fact that I don’t think anyone reads this blog much anymore.
Sure, when you post less, you get less feedback. That’s expected. I’ve also been not so good at visiting other blogs, so I understand that too. But what I mean is, whenever I have discussion posts about things I’m passionate about, I rarely ever get feedback. And there is literally zero reason to post a long, passionate discussion only for no one to read it. It feels like no one cares about these issues that are important to me, and thus I’ve been unable to publish about a bunch of things that are so important to me. (Mostly about diversity issues and Middle-Easterners/Muslims in books–that I think have been mostly terriblly represented, if any, in stories, but that’s a whole other story).
Basically, I’m not sure what to do. Because I still enjoy blogging, but it’s not giving me the same enjoyment as before and I don’t want to stress about not posting–but at the same time, I don’t want to go on a hiatus. I don’t even know anymore.
Anyway, if you read this post and have any tips as to what I should do, I’d appreciate it greatly.
