Lack of Blogging

I have had this blog for five years now. Five. Since 2009 I've been blogging about my life and my relationship with Ryan. I've used it to meet people from across the world, keep my family and friends up to date on life happenings, and talk about things that I need to get off my chest. I have blogged about Ryan's deployments, our engagement, our wedding, our four years of marriage, PCSing, acting, happy times, loss, sadness, job struggles... my life on a website.

And lately I feel like I have nothing to say.

My husband is home, we are waiting (once again) on the Marine Corps to tell us what is next (of anything at all), and things are basically routine. I have a full time job again where I do work some weekends and the time I am off I am basically spending with my husband. No big trips or exciting adventures lately... I am happy if we make it to the beach on our day off now... with our schedules and the weather being kind of crappy even that is rare.

I don't feel like anyone is interested in any of that anyway. Not anymore. The few times I have managed to write something lately I feel like it is just being sent out into the void. I miss the days when people would comment, start discussions... when my blogging friendships were a huge part of my life. These days I feel like all of the people around when I started have faded away for the most part. Some still blog, but I just wonder if I am clinging to something that should be let go.

Maybe something blogworthy will happen soon.

In the mean time, I am still here.


  1. I've still been reading. Mostly I follow on bloglovin' and that isn't the most user friendly when it comes to leaving comments. In the past month I kicked my blogging back into gear and really feel the same way you do, but I'll keep at it. So should you.

  2. Hey lady!

    I still read your blog and care! You don't need those big events to keep me interested, it's the day to day events that make up your life and who you are, I want to hear about that. :)

    Sending lots of hugs and love your way!

    Your cyber creeper.

  3. Agree with others - I'm reading, too. Sometimes I just feel I don't have anything too insightful too add. I think everyone needs a break sometime. Maybe it's time for you to take one. We'll all be here when you return! - Heather, Life of a Traveling Navy Wife
